This Wednesday at 9 pm/ET, Discover Channel's MythBusters — led by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage — returns with a "Demolition Derby Special," in which our stalwart experimenters try to flip a bus (à la Speed), compact a compact car, and mimic a remarkable Lexus commercial.
In this video Q&A with TVGuide.com, Hyneman and Savage discuss the difficulty they often face in recreating "once in a million occurrences," with Savage admitting, "Sometimes it really kicks our butt."
Also coming up in the show's seventh season: another Alaska special, in which they try to sail a boat made out of sawdust and ice, a nod to Seinfeld (does double-dipping really spread germs?), and an in-depth expose of, yes, the age-old banana-peel slip. Says Hyneman of their look into the slapstick chestnut, "It's hilarious."

Details on why the man-stealing, baby-wanting Brenda Walsh will be back for the season finale are sketchy, but we're guessing that it's no accident that Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) will be just about ready to deliver by then, and is still in need of an adoptive parent for her impending bundle of joy.

Eliza Dushku's Maxim cover shoot
Sci-fi fans love them some Eliza Dushku, and the sexy Dollhouse star is giving them even more to drool over by posing for the March issue of Maxim. For the photos, the former Buffy and Tru Calling actress went with a retro, sexy-but-"classy" movie star look. Dushku did a cover shoot for the men's magazine back in 2001 — which, according to the actress, had her three big brothers all up in arms. If her crop top got them all fired up last time, then they definitely won't mind their little sis posing in tiny black lingerie, right?

The ad simply reads, "Bare Skin, Not Bearskin."
Bamber's print PSA is part of PETA's campaign to persuade Queen Elizabeth to end the use of Canadian black bear fur for headwear worn by Buckingham Palace guards. The Battlestar hunk is a native of London and films the space-based show in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
Now doesn't this picture make you mad that Bamber's been stuck in a full-body flight suit for much of his four years on BSG? Oh, the injustice!
