'Mythbusters' to return with new seventh-season episodes on October 7

Mythbusters' seventh season, which premiered in April, will continue to follow special effects experts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage as well as their "Build Team" of Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara as they attempt to either prove or disprove various scientific myths and legends.

The premiere episode will follow Hyneman and Savage as they conduct an experiment to see which hits the ground first -- a bullet fired from a gun or another dropped simultaneously from the same height. 

In addition, the "Build Team" investigates if you can really knock someone out of their socks by using a crash test dummy, a boxing ring, a nitrogen cannon, a battering ram and explosives.

Additional seventh-season myths the show will experiment with include whether a muddy car gets better mileage than a clean one; if duct tape is really as strong as it's billed to be; whether mixing drinks make your hangover worse than if you stick to one type of alcohol; and if a car driven off a cliff really explodes in a fireball upon impact.

The team will also re-examine some experiments from previous seasons, including if a hot water heater can explode through your roof  -- this time, from the basement -- and whether you can shoot a gun around corners.

Mythbusters premiered on Discovery Channel in 2003.
