Kari Byron Did you marry a nerd? He is more of a geek. First off I'd like to thank you and the entire mythbusters team for your years of work. You made me and many other kids feel that we could have a great life with a million opertunities. I spent most of my childhood as a "maker" and was picked on for bringing in cool things to show my teacher, or always having the right answer.
I was constantly bullied for who I was, just because it intimidated the other kids, even into my teen years But honestly, thanks to mythbusters I always had friends who knew exactly how awesome building, science and engineering is, and that will always be with me. I love new show! It feels so good, not a scripted mess like a lot of these kinds of shows. I'm wondering, is that thanks to beyond productions being a part of it?
I noticed a lot of the dramatisations are shot in Australia I think so I'm assuming they had a big part in the "feel" of the show? If not what has managed to keep the show from feeling so "tacky"?
Congratulations and thank you again. Beyond is an Australian company. Good eye; I think they wanted to keep what made Mythbuster fans like us but make a whole new show. It is still a young project. We listen to the fans. If we get a second crack at this I am listening to what you guys are saying. Kari Byron What's the best thing to come from the success you've found on MythBusters, the worst? I even got to go to the White House. The worst is that I am totally unqualified for any other career.
I can wire explosives but I can barely type. Kari Byron Hello, Kari Congratulations on the new show. It is great to see you back on-air. I have heard that in addition to the awesomeness you display on TV, you are also an amazing artist. Do you have any plans to share your art with the world? I put my pieces on social media like twitter, instagram and facebook here and there.
I did a black powder painting for the Verge the other day. I am currently making a book out of all my monsters that I make. Maybe someone will publish it someday. If you follow me, you can see some of my non tv life. Kari Byron Would you thank the producers of your new show for me? The format is SO much easier to watch. The old format with the constant re-cap every few minutes telling us what we just watched, and then telling us what we are going to see next, over and over and over, got really old really fast.
It also took time that would have been so much better spent with more details of the build or testing process, or even more theory. The new format doesn't assume I'm an inattentive child.

Are Tory Belleci and Kari Byron in relationship? Are they getting married?
I have a dream to make a horror comedy. I have a write up on my lap top; Someday I was always a fan of Mythbusters, but the show get much better when the build team was added.
Eventually, i become more interested in watching you, Tori and Grant. I couldn't be happier that you guys had your own show picked up. Kari Byron is expert on firearms, explosives, and prop design. Tory Belleci is an expert on rigging, and falling off and onto things.
Imahara is an expert on anything that resembles a robot or that uses Pulse Width Modulation. Rather, they pick a topic that could come from fiction, reality, mythic or not, such as the effects of extra gravity, navigation, jailbreaking, super hero abilities, or weaponry. Then, they come up arbitrarily, I assume it is a design thing with six exemplars, and explore them. The team makes no effort to address these six instantiations of the focal topic uniformly. Indeed, they do quite the opposite.
For instance, consider Episode 2 on jailbreaks.
This is done with actors though they do show the real before and after mug shots and there is no serious analysis and zero attempt to replicate the event. This one is jut for fun. A second jailbreak involved over British officers escaping from a Nazi prisoner of war camp. For this escape, the team went into great detail as to how it was done, and took it very seriously, but did not replicate anything. A third case involved two families trapped in East Germany behind the Iron Curtin escaping via a home made hot air balloon.
For this escape, Belleci actually builds a replica of the balloon and gets it off the ground, reveals problems with the technology, teaches how the technology works by demonstration and interviews with one of the original builders as well as a ballon expert, etc. So that historical escape got the whole nine yards.
By not attempting to give even treatment to each instance, but covering several instances, the final effect is one of richness and thoroughness.
This treatment comes in three segments of the show.
