All in all, I would give this Season 8/10 (4*)
Don't get me wrong; there were a number of great episodes. But the moments of constant we need to save this piece of land and oh, I hate my dad, but by the end of the episode it's all...I'm sorry you were just misunderstood... Some of it was too unrealistic and left me feeling unsatisfied.
Perhaps after six seasons Macgyver has lost it's initial appeal for me or maybe the writers just wanted to make a political statement. Either way it was sometimes painful to watch some of the episodes in this season.
Overall: If you're a MacGyver fan get this to complete your collection, but don't hold your breath.
These stories each have meaningful messages whether it be the dangers of pesticides, dangers of alcohol, or the dangers of glaucoma. And just as important the stories engage the viewer. If the stories weren't interesting the messages would be lost.
Why did Macgyver end in season 7 and was season 6 just the series maturing and about to end? I don't think the series had to end. I have read some fan fiction about Macgyver, and it is full of new ideas. For instance one fan fiction explains Murdoc always surviving because he was an immortal. It was a cross over from "Highlander". And yes, Murdoc is back in season 6. If you are a fan you know Murdoc episodes are always good.
So as the series winds down there is still some great episodes. But did Richard Dean Anderson (who plays Macgyver) know how to do any of the things Macgyver does? My guess is that he knows more than he admits.
Also there is rumors on the Web about a possible movie. How true that is I don't know.
So you see even though the tv show ended, there is still much fascination with the show through fans. That is through their fiction and over the Web. If you are the least bit interested in Macgyver, you should get seasons 1 through 7. And if your younger and are new to Macgvyer, there is no show like it on tv today.
