    Seriously.... no Grant Imahara / Mythbusters fans here? I'm surprised! I LOVED that show - saw every single episode at least once, and learned a lot. When Grant was added the engineering just ramped up 10-fold IMO!

    I just thought there'd be more folks here who felt the same way

    Some of us have day jobs, Dave.

    While I thought most of the show was just plain silly - I could always count on a few good laughs. I did enjoy the "rocket" episodes tho....

    The cast is doing a lot of different thing these days, I was surprised on just how long the series ran.

    Sad to see anyone leave so young....

    I think this info is a bummer. :( I thought it was a cool TV show.

    I think the show got canceled because to many kids were trying their cool stuff at home.

    People should put a bar of soap in their microwave oven, Or charge their cell phone in the microwave, So that Grant Imahara can get a good laugh looking down at us.

    RIP

    Grant seemed to be the nicest person on the show, and truly talented.

    My sons watched Mythbuster. I thought it was interesting but never tuned in unless my sons were watching.

    I guess the show didn't bust any of my myths.

    What I think I liked best was the progression over the years from "we have very little money so the myths must be pretty basic and cheap to do but be fun to watch" to "let's spend a ridiculous amount of money building the most insane rig to bust or confirm a myth"!!

    Tory, Kari, and Grant really rounded out the "Adam / Jamie show" - for YEARS.

    He'll be missed by many

    I’m sorry the world lost him so soon. I did enjoy his shows, and I remember watching his robot battle shows with my kids before Mythbusters. At least he went very quickly.
