Well, guys. I don't know how many of you are fans of Mythbusters.
But as you heard the news, M7 or commonly the Build Team, consisting of Kari Byron, Grant Imahara & Tory Belleci. It's been announced that they're leaving M7, leaving only Adam Savage & Jamie Hyneman (A&J) as the sole hosts. They said "take the show back to its season one roots that featured only Adam and Jamie as the mythbusting team" , to be honest, ever since I remember the first few seasons of Mythbusters, it was just so-so and ok, but then it got even better when Grant Imahara came in for the first time, and the show gets better and better each season. I love Adam Savage as my favorite Mythbusters that time, but then I have to change to Grant as my #1 Mythbusters, Adam being #2. The show will not be the same without them, my personal rating dropped a little when A&J have special episodes like in Tornado Special with the Stormchasers, Duct Tape Island & Grand Canyon without featuring the Build Team. But now this is a big blow! I can't imagine as I bet the ratings will drop even more when the Build Team is gone. Think about it, we still got so many myths and yet so few people to tackle them, now down to 2, that's making the job a lot harder and a lot more stressful, I'm afraid to say but to feel sorry for A&J with the workload involved, and also the Build Team on where they're going next.
Here's the news in details, www.nerdist.com/2014/08/grant-…
Regarding that the change is unknown, I cannot assume that Discovery is cutting cost (The main & obvious culprit of choices in many industry in job news these days). If it does, it's chaos and the fan reaction will become rather than sorrowful for M7's departure, but anger for the bad move Discovery made.
As far as I'm concerned, some people said "I only watch Discovery Channel because of Mythbusters." or "I love Mythbusters so much when the Build Team is more entertaining than A&J". But when they see their favorite show turned upside-down, it definitely hurts the fans. Just as painful to imagine we lost our loved ones in any disaster. I notice people said that the ratings of Goldrush & Deadliest Catch are higher than Mythbusters, I can't tell, but imagine if we're on Discovery, with our kids, do you think our kids love those other shows like Goldrush & Deadliest Catch and the other shows? Technically, not fun & interesting, just as I wasn't interested in them. But when my kids & I watch Mythbusters, it maybe science, but we like it because it's a fun family show with interesting characters, Adam Savage particularly because he's a funny guy & the Build Team tend to spice things up, with Kari as the only female member too. And now, this will definitely make any kids (& adults) cry when M7 is gone.
Wow, Year of the Horse doesn't mean it's going to be more pros (As in great MLP contents that is), but we also have many cons too (Such as Korra's show went to "online" after being kicked out of the Nick TV channel, and also got lots of airline crashes, mainly the high profile MH370 & MH17. And of course, Robin Williams). I gotta say, this is another one of the most painful moments in this year.
Lastly, I leave it up to you to share your opinion. What do you think? Thank you.
