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.
Donald P. Bellisario
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 modes of transportation were a Jeep Cherokee Chief, a Jeep Grand Wagoneer, and Jeep Wrangler CJ7. He ended up with his grandfather's (Harry) 1946 Chevy truck, and after Harry died, he left his 1957 Chevy Nomad to MacGyver as well. See more »
A paperclip can be a wondrous thing. More times than I can remember, one of these has gotten me out of a tight spot.

This show had a kind, intelligent, athletic, good-with-his-hands fellow from Minnesota (bonus: he is good-looking). I cannot ask for much more than that. The show was funny, good hearted and adventurous all at once. It should have gotten Emmy nominations but I think it was unique for the time. Now, shows that are similar are finally getting recognized.
The first five seasons were really the best; the last two seasons went for surreal moments of going into Mac's dreams and back in time. But, overall, it was always worth watching.
Once this baby is on DVD, I am doing all that I have to to own it!! Hopefully, someday soon....
