If you enjoy science, blowing things up, and crazy experiments, then odds are you’re a fan of the Discovery series Mythbusters. A great deal of the fun of the show comes from hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, and the duo have just been set to topline another Discovery series with a science edge. Deadline reports that the two will serve as judges for the new show Unchained Reaction. The series will pit “two teams of varying backgrounds — artists, rocket scientists, animatronic specialists, engineers and even your average Joes — against each other to build an elaborate chain reaction contraption on a massive scale.”
Each team is provided with the same tools and materials to complete the job, and is given five days to finish a series of mechanisms with a specific theme. As a big science nut, I’m incredibly excited about the prospect of this new show. It combines the experimental aspect of Mythbusters with the edge of competition. The six-part series is set to debut in March. As of yet, no Keanu Reeves or Morgan Freeman cameos have been announced.
