Adam Savage is Launching “Mythbusters Jr.” on Discovery

You didn’t really think that Adam Savage could stay away from Mythbusters for good did you? Later on this year he’ll be coming back to the Discovery channel as a part of Mythbusters Jr. and he can’t wait to get started. His excitement stems from the fact that he’ll be working on another Mythbusters, but this time as more of a mentor for those kids that are selected for the show due to their need to know and the fact vs. fiction mentality that they’ll bring with them. These kids will be at the top of their class and the type that like to experiment to either prove or debunk major and minor theories that they believe are important and could very well be, as well as those that could just be for fun.

Adam had this to say:

“I’m so excited to be returning to Discovery to work with these kids on a new incarnation of the show I love so much. To be able to confront them with great questions and the resources to answer them is such a dream. Helping to inspire future scientists and engineers is a mission I share with Discovery.”

Given that this is being done with kids there’s a chance that things could get even sillier and be kept extremely light compared to the original Mythbusters as the level of programming could incorporate a few challenges and engaging moments that might be used to break up the monotony. Adam will be the only original Buster coming back at this point as far as anyone knows, but things are usually easy to change as time goes on. Just the idea of coming back to share the knowledge and wisdom he’s gained with the next batch of scientists and researchers is enough to get Adam fully into the show however as he looks forward to another chance to bust a few myths and maybe prove a few of them right.

A lot of people might finally be able to quiet down now that Mythbusters is coming back in some form but there might be those that are less than impressed since shows focusing on kids are as a rule very different. There tend to be more things that a show can’t do with kids around depending on their ages and the safety factor tends to have to be raised to a very high degree. It could be that the show might suffer just a little bit in ratings simply because it’s not exactly like the first, but it should be worth taking a look first to determine the veracity of the show before a person simply says no to it. After all if you haven’t learned yet kids can be some of the best scientists around. They have the distinct advantage of never having done a great number of things yet, even if they’ve done a lot in the course of their lives. As a kid the life experience that they need to feel as if they been there and done that isn’t quite enough yet to make things like this less than interesting.

It should be a welcome sight when it returns later this year.
