Product Description

Using his brain in place of a gun, secret agent Angus MacGyver (Richard Dean Anderson) relies on his knowledge of science to save himself and others from jeopardy. Deploring the promotion of everyday violence, MacGyver refuses to carry weapons and instead designs lifesaving tools out of household staples like paper clips and duct tape. Anderson portrays a likeable hero of strong principals and intellect in this clever series, which successfully ran for seven years (1985-1992) and continues to remain a beloved cult favourite.

From Amazon.co.uk

In "Ghost Ship," MacGyver's boss, Pete (Dana Elcar), is asked to define what makes Mac (Richard Dean Anderson) so special. He replies, "You know, I've known him for eight years now, and I've never quite been able to put my finger on it. He just always comes through, no matter what." And that he does. MacGyver's third season begins with a blast from the past when Mac runs into Lisa (Elyssa Davalos), a woman he thought he had killed (unintentionally, of course). Turns out Lisa's just fine, but she did do a little time in a Russian gulag, proceeding to marry the ex-KGB operative who set her free. The two-part season opener ("Lost Love") allows Mac to make it up to his former flame with a little help from pal Jack (Bruce "D-Day" McGill), AKA "The Great Sheldrake," whose latest career move is magician.

The producers must have felt that Anderson and Davalos had chemistry as she returns a few episodes later ("Fire and Ice")--sans Russian accent--as Nikki, a different, recurring character (oddly enough, Mac fails to note the resemblance). Like Teri Hatcher's Penny, who doesn't appear in the third season, Nikki isn't a love interest, but a friend (and Phoenix Foundation colleague). While Penny will return the following year, Nikki will not. Fortunately, Michael Des Barres' maniacal Murdoc does reappear ("The Widowmaker"), but only once before Mac neatly dispatches him yet again--or does he? Other guest stars include three Kung Fu vets: The Sopranos' Joe Santos ("Back From the Dead"), Blade Runner's James Hong ("Lost Love"), and Keye "Master Po" Luke ("Murderer's Sky," the season finale). The latter two appeared in previous years, but--like Davalos--as different characters (whereas Santos's Jimmy "The Eraser" Kendall was first introduced in the second season). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I've been so addictive to this TV serial. Just love it. It's amazing how MacGyver turns a bad situation into an opportunity. The DVD is perfect! Strongly recommend!

series one...full of promise, but does not live up to it, by S3 the master of improvisational espionage is part time eco-warrior and part-time agony aunt. the list of charecters becomes progressivly more irritating, and half way through S3 the family mantra was "oh no not her/him again". we'll not be extending the collection. I had hoped S2 was a glitch; nit wasnj't.

Many may think MacGyver series a bit too far fetched but I can't agree. I enjoy every episode. It's fun and I can't wait to see what gadget he's going to devise next.

Anyone who watched this in the 80s will have a hoot reliving it all. Good clean stuff and suprising how many save the world environmental messages come across. Very entertaining.
