    I really enjoy this show as well. A pity their seasons are so short.

    Mythbusters is doing a storm chasing myths tonight before the premiere! I'll be tuned in for sure.

    Both vehicles survived the 160 mph wind test behind a 747 and both survived the 250mph test.

    I would love to hang out with Reed for a week or two during the season just to see the incredible chit he sees.

    Re: Storm Chasers

    Honestly... Can't stand the show.

    The only think I like is the footage. Some of that can be pretty good.

    Other than that... nothing.

    That episode won't be airing until next week. Tonight is a replay of the first episode of the season that aired last night. They don't get to the Yazoo City, MS tornado in the first episode.

    I thought the first episode wasn't that great. Too much high school drama between the chasers, and not enough focus on the storms, IMO.

    Weird, I saw a new episode on at 8:00 and it says Greatest Storms and Storm Chasers, wonder what it's about, 2 hours long.

    Yeah I did see that.

    "Extreme chasers Reed Timmer, Joel Taylor, IMAX Filmmaker Sean Casey, and Tim Samaras present their most exciting tornado chasing moments."

    I imagine they are going to summarize their favorite chasing moments ever, but it's not a continuation of this year's episodes. I will be watching. It'll probably be better than last night's show.

    One time on our way to St Louis we stayed at a hotel and Reed's car ended up staying in our hotel that night.
