Episode 71: Pirate Special

Arggghhh, me hearties! Jamie and Adam plundered the seven seas in search of pirate parables and maritime myths. The result? This 2-hour spectacular episode! And, with four stories of hijinks on the high seas the action is thick and fast. Playing with more firearms, the guys try to figure out how deadly cannonballs really are versus the splinters sprayed from a mighty broadside blast. Kari, Grant and Tory on the port side decode the mysteries of the ol’ pirate eye patch: why would a pirate wear a patch over a perfectly good eye? And if that isn’t enough, the gang tops of the show with rum, knives and sails … whaat? This one’s for the books!

Premiere: Jan. 17, 2006

i think they mean “2007” and not “2006”. that doesn’t stop this episode from being best episode evar, though! i mean, how can a pirate-themed obstacle course not be great?

besides, it had kari talking about “booty”. a pirate-themed episode is already hilariously awesome, so kari and her “booty” is is a bonus!

(“The Mythbusters’ Kari Byron puts you in the mood for a little experimentation…”?

i’d say i’m ready for some… *rips glasses off*EXPERIMENTATION!
