There have really only been a few episodes where Mythbusters have been quite wrong.

Most of the time they do several test on different scales. Because if the first test is no where near the same the one on the video, they can only try to increase it.

For example, the one with Sylvester Stallone runs on a hanging bridge and the rope is cut but he's still able to take a few steps and then jump.

They did several test but the moment the rope went off they could not get any sort of fast footing on the planks.

Another one was with a car hanging on the edge of a cliff and a bird lands on it and tip it over. They threw like 40 birds onto to it before it actually went over. You don't need to test it that much.

So Mythbusters are actually pretty accurate with most of their testing.
