The Mythbusters return tonight with an episode entitled "Fire in the Hole."  We don't know much, but we assume that this means that things are going to blow up real good tonight.  They are, as they say, going to start the summer season off with a bang.  Next week they may be doing something about household disasters, but tonight, tonight, they implied something about explosions.  That or fire.  Either way, isn't that exactly what you want to get from this long-running reality series?

    We don't know, precisely, what myths the busters on "Mythbusters" are going to attempt to bust tonight on this "Breaking Bad" special, but we hope they tackle the one that relates to dissolving people in big plastic tubs.  Remember how much trouble Jesse got into when he used the bath tub instead of the correct vat?  Man, that was a problem.  How would the busters even check that out?  They are not going to dissolve one of their own, are they?  Talk about breaking bad, wow, that would be a different look for the show.

    Perhaps the biggest myth that has been busted (is being busted?) by "Mythbusters" as their ninth season starts up again tonight is that there is a set number of myths out there which can be busted.  If the show has taught us anything (and in truth it's taught us a lot) it's that the number of myths that exist out there simply cannot be tabulated.  You would think that by now the series would have run out of myths to explore, but they haven't, they continue to tackle new ones every week and they continue to make their examinations completely fascinating.

    There are, as we think everyone knows, a whole lot of myths flying around about President Obama.  We're not promising that "Mythbusters" will be focusing on those myths, but the first episode of the two we're getting tonight is called the 'President Obama Episode,' so we think there's a decent chance they'll discuss the President in some way.  Truth be told, the President is actually scheduled to appear on the show.  Maybe they'll even tie it in with the second episode, the 'Bug Special.'  The way we see it, one of the greatest ways to debunk Obama myths would be with the use of bugs, right?  It isn't as though simply by calling it the 'Bug Special' they've promised they be of the living sort, is it?

    Through the years, "Mythbusters" has proven itself quite good at busting myths.  It's kind of like their thing, their raison d'etre.  Call us kooky, but we kind of think that that's why they call the show "Mythbusters."  That could be right, couldn't it?  That would actually make some sense, wouldn't it?  They call the show "Mythbusters" because they bust myths.  Oh man, the more we think about it, the more we talk it out, the more sure we are about it.  It must really be more than just random happenstance, mustn't it?

    We really would like to sing "Bust a Move" here, but we think we did that for the seventh season finale of this series.  It's upsetting, really and truly upsetting, because we don't like repeating ourselves on the one hand, but love "Bust a Move" on the other.  Frankly, if we couldn't take a quantum of solace from the fact that "MythBusters" was returning and therefore allowing us to get upset in the first place, we would cry.  On a slightly different note, wouldn't it be great if Young MC was a star of "MythBusters?"  We can only dream.

    The time for busting myths this season has nearly reached an end.  We've seen myths dispelled, myths proven, and perhaps, just perhaps, a little bit of mythmaking as Jamie, Adam, and company have explored many a popular wives' tale.  Just what myths will they tackle this week?  We could tell you, but if we did, would you really believe us, or would we just be creating our own little pretend story which would then either be proven or disproven when "Mythbusters" aired.  The way we see it, they have enough work to do, they don't need our adding to it with our own alleged myth.
