Product Description

Richard Dean Anderson stars as the iconic soldier of fortune with an uncanny knack for getting out of tight spots with his backpack full of seemingly useless items for a rainy day." 22 episodes on 6 DVDs. 1987-88/color/16 hrs/NR.

In "Ghost Ship," MacGyver's boss, Pete (Dana Elcar), is asked to define what makes Mac (Richard Dean Anderson) so special. He replies, "You know, I've known him for eight years now, and I've never quite been able to put my finger on it. He just always comes through, no matter what." And that he does. MacGyver's third season begins with a blast from the past when Mac runs into Lisa (Elyssa Davalos), a woman he thought he had killed (unintentionally, of course). Turns out Lisa's just fine, but she did do a little time in a Russian gulag, proceeding to marry the ex-KGB operative who set her free. The two-part season opener ("Lost Love") allows Mac to make it up to his former flame with a little help from pal Jack (Bruce "D-Day" McGill), AKA "The Great Sheldrake," whose latest career move is magician.

The producers must have felt that Anderson and Davalos had chemistry as she returns a few episodes later ("Fire and Ice")--sans Russian accent--as Nikki, a different, recurring character (oddly enough, Mac fails to note the resemblance). Like Teri Hatcher's Penny, who doesn't appear in the third season, Nikki isn't a love interest, but a friend (and Phoenix Foundation colleague). While Penny will return the following year, Nikki will not. Fortunately, Michael Des Barres' maniacal Murdoc does reappear ("The Widowmaker"), but only once before Mac neatly dispatches him yet again--or does he? Other guest stars include three Kung Fu vets: The Sopranos Joe Santos ("Back From the Dead"), Blade Runner's James Hong ("Lost Love"), and Keye "Master Po" Luke ("Murderer's Sky," the season finale). The latter two appeared in previous years, but--like Davalos--as different characters (whereas Santos's Jimmy "The Eraser" Kendall was first introduced in the second season). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars What will MacGyver think of next? July 19, 2005
A unique and different kind of TV action series, MacGyver made its television premiere in the Fall of 1985 to much fanfare. Audiences immediately responded to the title character and his unusual penchant for turning everyday items like chewing gum and paperclips into elaborate life-saving contraptions. In this way, it maintained a slight resemblance to The A-Team, and this recurring plot device helped MacGyver build a strong cult following...

Richard Dean Anderson plays the title role of MacGyver, an energetic employee of the fictional Phoenix Foundation for Research. An unorthodox hero by action series standards, MacGyver has a deadly fear of heights. A pacifist who refuses to use weapons, he relies heavily on his ability to use his brain and tinker with the various materials at his disposal. MacGyver's best friend, and the director of the Phoenix Foundation, is Pete Thornton (Dana Elcar). Pete often sends MacGyver on Foundation missions and sometimes comes to his aid (usually after MacGyver has saved the day). In addition, MacGyver is joined on a regular basis by his airplane pilot friend Jack Dalton (Bruce McGill), a man who constantly entangles himself in illegal activities and other troublesome situations. Between the usual slew of bad guys, the vendetta of archenemy Murdoc (Michael Des Barres), and his multitude of troublesome friends, MacGyver is always in the midst of interesting and dangerous events, and the show's true entertainment value derives from watching MacGyver's distinctive method of dealing with each one...

The MacGyver (Season 3) DVD features a number of action-packed episodes including the season premiere "Lost Love" in which a woman from MacGyver's past (a woman he once loved) returns to his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third time's a charm... June 11, 2005
With the first two seasons having recently come out on DVD barebones with no extras, don't hold your breath for this third season release. Nonetheless, the quality of the show itself is what really matters, not that of the package. There were a total of 20 episodes produced for this season, and the set has been announced as a 5-Disc collection, following the slim packaging established with the second season set. Richard Dean Anderson is great as the witty MacGyver, who uses his knowledge of things around him as a means of escaping the dreary situations he has to overcome in every episode. Dana Elcar is also fantastic as Peter Thornton, MacGyver's boss at the Phoenix Foundation, and also his best friend. The episodes that will be included in this set are: Lost Love- Part One, Lost Love- Part Two, Back From the Dead, Ghost Ship, Fire and Ice, GX-1, Jack in the Box, The Widowmaker, Hell Week, Blow Out, Kill Zone, Early Retirement, Thin Ice, The Odd Triple, The Negotiator, The Spoilers, Mask of the Wolf, Rock the Cradle, The Endangered, and finally Murderer's Sky. Hopefully Paramount will release the remaining four seasons on DVD soon, and maybe someday we will see extras in future sets.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST Season of MacGyver July 19, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Out of the 7 seasons of MacGyver, this one is by far the best overall. If you are only going to buy one season this one is for you. The first season set the stage for the show and the second season developed the character of MacGyver, now in the third season the writers really hit their stride. One stroke of genius is the introduction of Nikki Carpenter, a strong female with a mind of her own who butts heads with MacGyver every chance she gets. She drives Mac nuts which creates some great scenes between the two of them as the season goes on. They originally wanted her to be a love interest for MacGyver (she is played by the same girl who is in "Lost Love 1 & 2" at the beginning of the season) but they really didn't have that kind of chemistry. It is more of a brother sister kind of thing so she eventually leaves the show. Also in this season Jack Dalton returns for 5 episodes as does Murdoc in the one of the shows best episodes ever, "The Widowmaker". We get to see MacGyver's soft side when he finds a baby and his rough side when he coaches a hockey team. We also get to meet the many loves of MacGyver that always never quite work out. Overall, season 3 is the best season ever. Season 4 which will hopefully be out by Christmas comes in a close second.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection, Substandard Transfer March 19, 2006
By Kabroom
Found this season on sale at the local mega mart and thought it would be a great watch-together for me and my eleven year old boy. Excellent story lines with only a few predictable plots. Fast enough pace to keep me and my young-un interested. Thin storage cases that hold two DVD's each - nice. I was afraid these were going to be double-sided DVD's - always tough to determine which episodes you're loading, but not to worry. Only real complaint is the video transfer. Looks like the source material was VHS tape rather than film stock. Acceptable on a portable DVD player, but annoying when seen on a big screen TV. Would have been 5 stars otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep cranking em out!!! August 1, 2005
This is the BEST show on television ever!!! Richard Dean Anderson does an AWESOME job of playing this genious hero. He does a great job of keeping it entertaining and still makes it feel like he is just a normal human being like any of us. This season truely brings out the true MacGyver and MacGyverisms. Thanks Paramount and please keep em coming!
