Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Richard Dean Anderson stars as MacGyver, an agent for the Phoenix Foundation, a progressive agency devoted to righting the wrongs of the world. Even more progressive is the near-genius MacGyver who never carries a gun and always thwarts the enemy with his vast scientific knowledge, sometimes with little more than a paper clip and the duct tape in his pocket.

Amazon.com

Desperate times call for desperate measures--and the desperate will stop at nothing to get MacGyver's attention. In the fifth season premiere ("Legend of the Holy Rose"), an old friend releases his houseboat from its moorings--while he's in it. Four episodes later ("Halloween Knights"), an old enemy relieves his boat of its belongings. It works, of course. Mac lives to help people in need, even if those people include obnoxious archeology professor Zoë (Lise Cutter), who enlists his aid in tracking down an ancient artifact, and the mysterious Murdoc (Michael Des Barres), who does the same to rescue his kidnapped sister. Joining forces with arch-enemy Murdoc marks a break with previous seasons. Otherwise, the fifth features the same resourceful secret agent as the first four (though he’s relying on those inventive "MacGyverisms" less often as the series continues). MacGyver (Richard Dean Anderson) still travels the world on behalf of the Phoenix Foundation, while reporting to supportive superior Pete Thornton (Dana Elcar). As before, he goes it alone: no gun, no back-up, no wisecracking sidekick--not counting reckless rogue Jack Dalton (Bruce McGill), who drops by on occasion to shake up MacGyver's well-ordered world.

Aside from a greater interest in socially conscious causes, like the protection of endangered species, the 1989-1990 season also breaks with the past by an episode set in the Old West ("Serenity") and another set in the afterlife ("Passages"). In the former, Jack and Penny (Teri Hatcher in her final appearance) return as prototypes for their present day characters. Murdoc returns, as well--this time wearing a black hat. In the latter, Grandpa Harry (John Anderson) bids adieu. Other fifth year guests include Blossom’s Mayim Bialik ("Cease Fire," "Hearts of Steel"), The Exorcist’s Linda Blair ("Jenny's Chance"), and Jerry Maguire’s Cuba Gooding Jr. ("Black Rhino," "Serenity"). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 5 of MacGyver!!! December 16, 2005
Format:DVD
Season 5 is yet another one of MacGyver's best seasons. This season we really see how MacGyver's skill-thinking Green Beret knowledge is pt to the test with these episodes.

1.) 84. The Legend of the Holy Rose (Part 1 of 2) First aired: 9/18/1989

Opening gambit- The Airplane: MacGyver rescues a man who is being held against his will on a high cliff, with a home-built para-glider. MacGyver and an old friend dash around the world searching for the artifacts necessary to locate the Holy Grail, just one step ahead of a ruthless man on the same trail, who will do anything to get to it before they do...

2.) The Legend of the Holy Rose (Part 2 of 2) First aired: 9/25/1989

MacGyver and an old friend dash around the world searching for the artifacts necessary to locate the Holy Grail, just one step ahead of a ruthless man on the same trail.

3.) The Black Corsage First aired: 10/2/1989

Mac and a bounty hunter join forces with a bulldog named Frog to track down a Bulgarian defector who was the accidental witness at a murder and who is now being stalked by the killer, who needs a map she doesn't know she possesses.

4.) Cease Fire First aired: 10/9/1989

During some tough negotiations between two neighboring states, one side plants a sniper in the vicinity. When Mac discovers the sniper, fights him, but loses the man, the accusations go out against Mac. Wounded, he is forced to run, and hide at a private girls' school, where one of the young ladies becomes his only hope to prevent further bloodshed. But the young girl has her own issues, and the assassination attempts won't stop until the targeted delegate is dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uh..hey guys? February 12, 2006
By Auryn
Format:DVD
It's a month before the release date, the price will actually drop to 'normal' once it's released. As for the Wal-Mart price, if you wait a week after it's released, the price WILL go back up to the listed retail price of 38.99. As for shipping charges..Join Amazon prime. Free 2nd Day Shipping, and 3.99 Next Day Shipping.

This is probably one of the best seasons of MacGyver. My favortie two episodes are in this season. A must have for any Mac fan out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars MacGyver -- the Fifth Season December 29, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been ordering the MacGyver DVD's "piecemeal" rather than in the complete set, partly because I'd acquired the "First Season" from another source, but could not find the subsequent sets in retail outlets, and partly because I had not got into the "rhythm" of watching the DVD's until recently. However, once started, I've felt compelled to finish, so I am now in the midst of the fifth season and have received the final two sets. I will review them as I view them.

The fifth season is intriguing in many ways. It deals, as all the MacGyver stories do, with issues of various sorts -- especially social and ecological problems -- that were current at the time of the original filming. I am amazed in retrospect at how extremely timely they actually remain. However, there are some delightful and intriguing plot twists, and I would rate the "Christmas Episode" of the fifth season, "The Madonna", as one of the all-time best stories I've ever viewed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Macgyver Season 5 February 11, 2007
Format:DVD
I agree with the last reviewer because I definitely think the best epsisodes were in season 1-3. Right now I am just getting to season 6 and I am realizing that the shows are becomming somewhat boring and totally different then the first few seasons of Macgyver. I am thinking that Seasons 4-7 are not as good as the rest of the seasons but I will have to wait and see when I finish my collection. I am also noticing Jack Dalton and Penny Parker don't have many appearances either in season 5 and it feels a little lonely without them.
