This week, Ryan Dunn and Jessica Chobot wage a war with the undead when they stage their own zombie apocalypse. First, the team attempts to make meat suits as suitable alternatives to human flesh, and then comes up with creative ways to kill zombies, including dropping logs, exploding land mines and shooting bean bags! Finally, Ryan and Jess face off in a post-apocalyptic showdown between survivors and zombies where only the stealthiest stay alive.
This week, Ryan Dunn and Jessica Chobot embark on a mission to see if it's possible to play the game "Angry Birds" in real life--but instead of using birds, they're upping the ante by slingshotting actual humans (dressed as idiotic animals, of course)! Using a giant human launcher, the crew will attempt to destroy manmade structures and give special "abilities" to our flying humans during their aerial attack, including splitting into three, dropping exploding eggs and more.
Join Ryan Dunn and Jessica Chobot as they attempt to channel a galaxy far, far away and recreate The Force from "Star Wars" to give Jedi powers to people in real life. Sparks fly (literally) when Ryan engages force lightning, and Jess attempts inhuman speeds with hurricane power fans and simulates telekinesis to move inanimate objects with the help of a video game! See if our hosts can figure out how to control these Force-like powers and put them to the ultimate Jedi test to defeat an evil emperor. Will they come out victorious?
This week, Ryan Dunn and Jessica Chobot begin the transformation into real-life superheroes. Are you jealous of Spider-Man's web slinging, wall climbing, "Spidey" sense capabilities? The crew assembles a battery of tests to outperform any villains living amongst us! First, Jessica volunteers a production assistant to withstand the fangs of a real tarantula to see whether being bitten by a spider will automatically give you super powers. Then, the team experiments with crossbows, grappling hooks, vacuum-powered suction cups and motion sensors to recreate Spider-Man's abilities--but no superhero is complete without a custom-designed costume! Find out if Ryan's sewing skills are up to superhero standards.
