Discovery’s MythBusters loves to take on Hollywood (see: the settling of whether Jack had to die at the end of Titanic). The show’s July 10 return, an hour called “Fire in the Hole,” focuses on one of the hosts’ favorite subjects: blowing crap up.

The team tackles some of Tinseltown’s favorite TNT scenarios—namely whether you can contain an explosion and survive a blast by tucking the dynamite inside ordinary objects like an aquarium or file cabinet. What about under a bed? Could that save you? Watch our sneak peek below for the answer.

MythBusters airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery. New episodes will also test household disasters (could a piano crash through your roof?), commercial myths (could you actually bob for an apple while jumping from a 100-foot high bungee cord?), and Hollywood car stunts (the cliff-top push, the two-wheel wipeout, and the Corvette barrel roll from Wanted).
