Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

No Chemistry

The new hosts, Jonathan & Brian, are NOT Jamie & Adam ... No Where Even Close. There is no chemistry, not camaraderie, no thoughtful interaction. IMHO, this lackluster attempt at bringing back one of the most successful shows is a TOTAL BUST. I think you'd get more out of watching paint dry, but to each their own.

New Mythbusters

I like the Myths on the show but I don’t like Jonathan and Brian as the host I think Adam , Tory ,Grant, and Kari should be the host of the show.
