There are some people that would look at this and think it’s harmless since ‘Spot’ is programmed to do whatever is commanded of it, without any deviation in behavior. Others might think that it’s another step down a slippery slope to the day when robotics will go too far and the apparently harmless creations that are made to dance and move about will somehow gain sentience and thereby realize that humans are a little too problematic. It’s not surprising that Adam Savage would find this amazing since the guy loves to know and figure out how things work. There is

The Muppets — specifically, the comedy-variety troupe featuring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo the Great, et. al. — are in their sixth decade of existence, but they have never been more perfectly deployed than in their first project together, the Seventies syndicated hit The Muppet Show. A faux variety series, each episode was a mix of two kinds of segments. The first were vaudeville-style sketches from the show-within-a-show, where the Muppets sang, danced, told corny jokes, and appeared in shows-within-the-show-within-the-show like Pigs in Space and Veterinarian’s Hospital.

Discovery has lined-up two days of “Mythbusters” episodes to air across two networks in tribute to host Grant Imahara, who died earlier this week of a brain aneurysm at the age of 49.
