A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
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

Throughout the entire run of the series, MacGyver states many times his opposition to using guns because of a childhood event. However, in the pilot, he does in fact fire a gun, an AK-47, and then quickly hands it to the pilot he's rescuing to provide cover fire. He also used a gun pointing it at bad guys in the opening gambit of MacGyver: Target MacGyver (1985). In MacGyver: Strictly Business (1991) he also points and intends to use a gun, but at the time was suffering from amnesia and stops himself. See more »

This is still one of the greatest shows ever! I remember watching this show when I was a kid, and still try to catch the reruns. There are still classic MacGyver references made about building a bomb with a toothpick, some string, a stick of gum, and a few household chemicals if the right proportions. This was just a good show, not overly complicated, but with good values and likable characters. Richard Dean Anderson is likable as MacGyver with Dana Elcar as his boss and best friend. Always a classic!
