No, not at all. But, it was fascinating how he could make a flame thrower out of a toothbrush.
How could you not be? It was played by an underrated actor, featured entertaining stories and actually taught people a thing or two about science. Awesome show.
I used to see it when I was a teen and loved it then. Haven't seen it in many years, so I don't know how it would fare now.
Yes I am and even though some of the storylines seem a bit far-fetched nowadays, the show is still very entertaining.
I love it!
My mom brought home the boxed DVD set and I fell in love from it then. I loved how you always learned a little something from each episode, like a trick, or even a small fact.
Whenever I have to temporarily fix something using strange items, I call it a MacGyver-ism, haha!
I do not have the DVD set, (though I wish I did), I recorded a few myself. I have a weird mind that is always thinking and never stops thinking! I fix things like that too. :-)
One time I was at the bus stop and my sandal strap broke. I then used the ribbon piece off my umbrella handle to make a temporary strap until I got home. I felt so proud of myself, haha!
Very good!! That is exactly the type of quick, sharp, thinking which I was talking about.
At Windells Holiday Snowboard Camp, a roommate wanted to light a candle, but didn't have matches. I got fire by holding a paper towel to a turned-on burner; it's an old trick. She complimented me on my McGyver skills!
I definitely enjoyed them! I thought it was funny that it was supposed to take place in the Los Angeles area, yet you see all these brick buildings and can tell it was filmed in Vancouver, BC,. It also helped that I once had a Canadian womanizer roommate who resembled a short brunet Richard Dean Anderson.
I used to enjoy the show when it was in it's original run. The MacGyverisms in each show were all real, doable tricks. What the writers did, was to leave out one small component of each invention so that kids couldn't "try this at home". Richard Dean Anderson was a fun actor to watch and I enjoyed his work on Stargate:SG1 even more than his work on MacGyver.
