A scientist who has created a super helicopter has defected to Libya and taken the machine with him. A secretive government agency hires an ex-Vietnam War pilot to go to Libya, steal the chopper and bring it back.

Macgyver is a secret agent with a difference. He is quiet, mild mannered, deeply principled and refuses to carry a gun on his missions. Fortunately, the last detail is unimportant when compared to his astounding mind. Drawing on a vast practical knowledge of science, Macgyver is able to make use of any mundane materials around him to create unorthodox solutions to any problem he faces. The enemies of world peace and justice continually learn that underestimating this man is a fatal mistake for their plans. Written by

MacGyver's given name was not revealed until near the end of the show in "Good Knight MacGyver: Part 2". It was originally Stace MacGyver (according to the script for the pilot). Nobody used the name during the pilot; when it slipped out and became general knowledge to the fans, it was decided to just call him "Mac" or Macgyver" for the duration. The penultimate episode had MacGyver discovering he had a son, and then leaving the Phoenix Foundation to spend time with him. His son revealed that his middle name was the same as MacGyver's first name. See more »

All of us at one time or another have enjoyed "MacGyver". The series always had the most drama and excitement around. Richard Dean Anderson played this role to perfection. I recently watched two episodes one in which Teri Hatcher in rescued in the old west. I watched an episode in which Kim Zimmer is held hostage only to be rescued by MacGyver. Catch the reruns on WGN.
