Did You Know?


It is implied that MacGyver works for, or takes assignments from, Department of Defense, since his internal monologue reveals he went to Middle East because Washington asked him to. Also, a suit called Barney pays him a visit and says, "The department is grateful", and "I'm not offering you an assignment." See more »


During the opening gambit, MacGyver is seen using the temperature switch to turn on the toaster oven, and the "toaster timer" switch was not pressed down. But a later shot of the toaster oven while it's melting the ice shows that the "toaster timer" switch is in the down position. See more »
