This is exactly why I can’t watch Mythbusters. It’s the worst when you’re binge-watching shows. I’m doing this with Hell’s Kitchen and holy cow there’s a “Coming up” and “Previously on” every episode. Also after every commercial, they re-play the last 30 seconds from before the commercial.
Compare the UK and US versions of Kitchen Nightmares. In the UK version they can be 3 days in after 10 minutes. In the US version there can be 10 minutes left, and they still haven’t tasted the food. Ramsay is also decidedly more helpful and less angry in the British version too.
