Enjoyment: Some of the best episodes of the series are in this batch. 2005 seems to be the beginning of MythBusters' few years of greatness. They've gotten the hang of how to make a good show, they have a lot of questions to test that we really want to know the answer to, and there's a real sense of discovery with most of the things they do. A

GPA: 2.4/4

*There doesn't seem to be any standard for what constitutes a season of MythBusters. No two sources I can find agree with each other. So I'm going with Wikipedia's arbitrary but conveniently simple method of dividing the show by broadcast year.
