The Discovery Channel, which aired Mythbusters and BattleBots, on which Imahara was a judge, described him as "a really wonderful man". Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage wrote that he was "such a generous, easygoing, and gentle person". No words.

There is no consistent system for organizing MythBusters episodes into seasons. The show does not follow a typical calendar of on- and off-air periods. The official MythBusters website lists episodes by calendar year. On the other hand, Discovery sells DVD sets for "seasons", which sometimes follow the calendar year and sometimes do not. In addition, Discovery also sells "collections" which divide up the episodes in a different way — each collection has about 10 or 12 episodes from various seasons.
