'MythBusters' takes on 'Deadliest Catch' chaos -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Mythbusters Deadliest Catch

(Discovery Channel)

This week’s episode of MythBusters (Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET) keeps it in the Discovery family with a “Deadliest Catch Crabtastic Special.” Captains Johnathan and Junior join in the fun as Jamie and Adam test the deadliest Catch myth of all – that getting your foot caught in the rope at the rail guarantees you’re going overboard. Tory and Kari, meanwhile, test whether a pattern of power naps lets you function twice as well as no sleep at all. (They make that look pretty dangerous, too.) And the team determines whether a crab pot really is indestructible. (Cue the explosion!) Watch an exclusive tease below.
