American special effects expert Adam Savage (personal site) is one of the guys behind Mythbusters (official site), a highly popular science show on Discovery. In the show they use science to test the validity of rumours, urban legends and popular stories.
Mythbusters ‘inspired’ a lot of other networks to start making similar shows. Yet Savage does not feel bad about this.
Watch the video and go over to 2:00.
“I’d be happy to watch us lose to another show that did it better. I know that we don’t do it as well as we could every single time although we try, and I know that a lot of the attempts out there are crappy as hell. But the fact that other people are trying to replicate our success by making science shows is absolutely not a bad thing.”
Thank you Becky Blanton for pointing out this vid. to me.
