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 »


Close-up shot of the tree limb that Mac is chopping at shows the "limb" rocking slightly back and forth as Mac chops at it --- obviously just an loose unattached log, not a solid tree branch. See more »
