mythbusters breaking bad 'Mythbusters' is doing a 'Breaking Bad' themed episode“Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan said in an interview earlier this year that he’d like to do a crossover with Discovery’s “Mythbusters”: “I’d dig seeing those guys prove or disprove some of the crazy stuff we’ve done.”

Well, Mr. Gilligan, consider your wish granted. “Mythbusters” is filming a “Breaking Bad”-themed episode this week to air in the spring. Gilligan and “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul will both be featured in the show.

“We’ve been wanting to do a ‘Breaking Bad’ episode for awhile,” “Mythbusters” host Adam Savage tells EW. “Obviously there’s a lot of fertile material to play with, so things that happen on the show have been ending up on our list of stories to tackle for a couple years now. And when Vince said … he’d love to see a ‘Mythbusters’/’Breaking Bad’ crossover, we reached out to him directly and the response was overwhelmingly positive.”

Savage and co-host Jamie Hyneman will test the accuracy of a scene from Season 1 of “Breaking Bad,” when Jesse (Paul) uses hydrofluoric acid to dispose of a body. The acid eats through the tub, which then falls through the floor. Fellow Mythbusters Kari Byron, Grant Imahara and Tori Bellecci will test a different Season 1 scene — and no, it’s not the process by which Walter White (Bryan Cranston) cooks meth.

“We have no interest in increasing the public’s knowledge about how to make methamphetamine,” Savage says.
