I've really been enjoying the new 'MythBusters Jr', Adam Savage's new science exploration show featuring... kids. Really smart awesome talented kids.
Adam Savage will be Tweeting live during tonight's two premiere episodes, and they start airing an hour early (at 8 pm ET) for parents with wee ones.
Watch it on Science Channel through your cable/satellite provider, or SCIGO, their online streaming service.
One of the episodes tonight is 'Demolition Dominoes.'
