With the acclaimed AMC series Breaking Bad having begun airing its last episodes before ending last night, there’s not much time left for it to have a tie-in with another show. That being the case, tonight on Discovery Channel you can see an excellent special episode of MythBusters that tests two Breaking Bad-inspired myths.
Airing tonight at 10:00pm ET/PT, the episode sees Adam and Jamie run an acid-related test, while Kari, Grant, and Tory investigate the explosive properties of Mercury Fulminate (see below). You know it’s going to be a good episode when testing one of the myths involves primary explosives.
Breaking Bad show creator Vince Gilligan and star Aaron Paul (though sadly not Bryan Cranston) are on hand for the episode as well. It’s not the best MythBusters ever, but I think it’s among the better tie-in episodes they’ve done. Check out a clip below of part of the Mercury Fulminate testing:
