Product Description

Complete second season of the 1980s television series. MacGyver (Richard Dean Anderson), adventurer and science expert, works for the government as a secret agent. Refusing on principle to carry a gun, he uses his vast knowledge of practical science to complete his missions and to create ingenious traps for his enemies. In this series, MacGyver is helping four ex-gang member teenagers on a hiking trip when their plane crashes in the wilderness, and he's also given a dangerous mission into Central America in order to save a botanist who has become mixed up in the drugs trade. Episodes are: 'The Human Factor'; 'The Eraser'; 'Twice Stung'; 'The Wish Child'; 'Final Approach'; 'Jack of Lies'; 'The Road Not Taken'; 'Eagles'; 'Silent World'; 'Three for the Road'; 'Phoenix Under Siege'; 'Family Matter'; 'Soft Touch'; 'Birth Day'; 'Pirates'; 'Out in the Cold'; 'Dalton, Jack of Spies'; 'Partners'; 'Bushmaster'; 'Friends'; 'DOA: MacGyver'; and 'For Love Or Money'.

From Amazon.co.uk

MacGyver's second season begins by following the same blueprint as the first (although the opening gambit is gone). Richard Dean Anderson is back as the eponymous secret agent. So is Pete Thornton (Dana Elcar), operations director of the Phoenix Foundation. In addition, Mac's ditzy pal, Penny (Teri Hatcher), and beloved grandfather, Harry (John Anderson), return for a few episodes. In the season premiere ("The Human Factor"), a skeptical military man says to Thornton, "So this is your main guy. He doesn't even have any gear." Responds Thornton, "That's what makes him so special." As before, Mac doesn't drink, smoke, or carry a firearm. He puts it plainly in the fourth episode ("The Wish Child"): "I hate guns." Mac would rather use non-violent means, i.e. "MacGyverisms," to fight crime. Midway through the 22-episode year, however, creator Lee David Zlotoff (Remington Steele) decided to shake up the formula by introducing two new characters. First there's Mac's college buddy, Jack Dalton (busy character actor Bruce McGill from Animal House, The Cinderella Man, etc.), who makes his first appearance in the sixth episode ("Jack of Lies"). Then there's Mac's arch-nemesis Murdoc (actor/musician Michael Des Barres from Melrose Place), who makes his in the eighteenth ("Partners").

Other notable second season guest stars include Fast Times At Ridgemont High's Vincent Schiavelli ("Soft Touch"), Murphy Brown's Robert Pastorelli ("Out in the Cold"), and Star Trek's George Takei and Wayne's World's Tia Carrere ("The Wish Child"). MacGyver also had a tendency to bring back actors from previous seasons for different roles. Second year returnees include Mean Streets' Richard Romanus ("Twice Stung"), Barney Miller's Gregory Sierra ("Jack of Lies"), and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Nana Visitor ("D.O.A. MacGyver"). --Kathleen C. Fennessy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
MacGyver season two sensibly sticks with the winning formula of the first year. Mac has now left his government job to work for the rather loosely defined Phoenix Foundation, but that's really just a cosmetic change to give the writers more options. (Not that it reduces the number of episodes where he just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, of course.)
Another, more concrete change is that the role of MacGyver's buddy/boss Pete has been bulked up, and another recurring character added in the form of Mac's old friend Jack Dalton. It's a good move, since Mac's at his best with somebody to play off, and the show's been let down before by inconsistent chemistry with guest stars.
The quality of the episodes varies - I found some brilliant, others a bit dull in places - but overall, this season is just as entertaining as the first year. MacGyver is one of the most human heroes I've seen in an action series; he may be endlessly inventive and an implausibly nice guy, but he also spends a lot of his time visibly scared or nervous, he gets winded, and it hurts his hand when he punches people.
The plots are sometimes predictable or silly, there's some blatant actor re-use and some endearingly bad 80s visual effects, but none of that detracts from the show's main strength in the slightest: it's enormously fun to watch. If you liked the first season, you'll like this one. If you haven't seen the first season... well, you can probably watch this one first without spoiling anything. Good stuff.

MacGyver - Series 2 - Complete [DVD]
I was actually bought this dvd for Christmas with Season 1.
I had seen and liked the series on TV. I ended up buying a multi region dvd player so that I could watch all the series as some of them were only available in region 1 format (seasons 5 - 7) Richard Dean Anderson is my man of the moment and he is so convincing as MacGyver the man who can make anything work given a swiss army knife a paper clip and a roll of duct tape.
Fantastic series.

The series really comes into its own in this second season. Now becoming an addict. Some recurring characters add a good dimension to the action and Richard Dean Anderson is great!
