MacGyver Audience Reviews

TinsHeadline Touches You
Platicsco Good story, Not enough for a whole film
Janis One of the most extraordinary films you will see this year. Take that as you want.
Billy Ollie Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
jill taylor (hkst) A few words evoke a smile when one travels internationally including "Coka a cola" and MacGyver. Ever popular the lessons of ingenuity and charity inspire generation after generation.This is must-see TV.Like all TV it is best without interstitial commercials. Usenet ftw. Commercials are a huge distraction. I won't watch them.A great gift is the complete DVD collection of MacGyver, or blueray if you prefer. I prefer hd but they aren't rendered in HD so an HD format is needless cost for more bits than were not there originally. So why bother? Maybe you are a completion and a format OCD?An even better gift is a full setup of ZFS NAS in home for storage of all classic TV worth watching. The better front end for NAS is of course kodi or LibreElec. On a budget the raspberry pi is a great home for LibreElec.
sasazg-1 Although I am only 28 years old, this 1980s show brings wonderful memories. I remember back in high school during the 1990s I was captivated by the this MacGyver character, his battles against arch enemy Murdock, and I was wishing there were many more shows like this, even today. This show was intelligent, creative, non-violent even though it had fair amount of fights, but it wasn't about killing a whole bunch of people like many shows today have stories that evolve in that direction.I was fortunate enough to buy all seven seasons of MacGyver and even today I enjoy watching them. Richard Dean Anderson did a great job with the portrayal of this somewhat legendary character.
suzie_wong62 Hi, I was wondering if anyone else has found out McGyver's first Name? I spent many a night watching episode after episode,never hearing his name mentioned, but knew it would come out eventually,as things like that always do, it's just a shame it took till the very last episode to find it out,but perseverance paid off with this one, and I must say, i am still addicted, and just love Richard Dean Anderson, he has shown his acting prowess in many forms, one of which was Stargate, But all in all, he is just a good actor, and i just loved all his episodes of McGyver, waiting to see what unusual and amazing tricks he has up his sleeves. Well stop wondering, his name is "Angus McGyver"
ultimatebabe1980 Every Tuesday my family would gather around the much-loved soapbox to watch attentively what MacGyver was up to that week. It was so much a part of our lives that people back home had MacGyver haircuts and once my little brother who was just four was so afraid of an episode that my dad had to explain that it was just a TV show but my brother was not convinced so my dad lied that he had even taken part in the show and that outside of it he was our real dad. Almost twenty years later, it is still a family joke. Nevertheless i think that in South Africa, in a time when we were experiencing harsh racism my family was able to enjoy few things and one of them was MacGyver. Moreover today as a journalist who faces crime reports ever so often, i find that message of anti-firearms in the series would be beneficial to today's society that is plagued by gun violence. I would love to see another episode of MacGyver and hopefully someday there would be a reunion. After the series was taken of the air, being a creative thinker i used to often come up with lots of endings but these days all i can remember is Richard Dean Andersons hopeful smile and truly the series made me believe that the ultimate weapon is one's mind.
