MacGyver is a family series that does not dumbdown for its audience. Its Indiana Jones, James Bond and Mr. Wizard all rolled into one.

Season four, like the other three season on DVD, are filled with friends from previous seasons... Penny Parker (Teri Hatcher), Jack Dalton (Bruce McGill) and Mac's sidekick/boss Peter Thorton (The late Dana Eclar) and his arch villian Murdoc (played to the hilt by Micheal Des Barres).

The best episodes of this season are:

Cleo Rocks-which shows why Teri Hatcher is the star she is today, as she tried to mount a musical with a killer (ala the Phanton of the Opera) lurking

On a Wing and A Prayer-reminds this critic of Flight of The Phoenix as Mac, Jack and Pete try to raise a bullet ridden sea plane

Deadly Dreams-Which is a TV spin on Silence of the Lamb-where Mac works with a criminal mastermind similar to Hannibel Lechter to find an escape killer

It is great TV at its best....However Dana Eclar passed this year-it would have been nice to have a tribute to him on the DVD. And One can wish Richard Dean Anderson one day does an audio commentary on a MacGyver box set

These 19 episodes are well worth your money and your time. So Paramount- so when is the rest coming? Soon I hope!

Season 4 was as good as ever! I loved this show as a child and it is even better now!! Classic MacGyver getting himself out of any and all situations. We need more TV heroes like MacGyver today. He is entertaining, but always upholds a decent set of morals. I'm glad the later seasons got away from the "James Bond Playboy" attitude that was prevalent in Season 1. Season 4 tackled some of the big issues of the day for the late 1980's. Mac was just good clean entertainment and he always made you think! I actually think it was MacGyver that inspired me to study Chemistry in college- he always knew everything about anything!

The DVD's were good quality and reasonably priced. I liked the fact that there were not to many extras added keeping the price down. Overall a great buy! I plan on purchasing the rest of the series!

Season four is MacGyver at its best. The stories expand more to include some additional characters and MacGyver's solutions are more creative than ever. We are also beginning to see MacGyver's social streak.
Acting has definitely improved from season one and two and there is a more consistent flow throughout the whole season.

One thing that still bugs me: the video quality is just as bad as season three :(
While season one and two looked great, season three and four look like washed-out VHS tapes. Come on, DVDs can look better than this!

When purchasing a series of TV shows it is important to have all the years that it was in production. This year was the exact middle of this show's 7 year production, and therefore a necessity to own if I wanted the entire production.

I like the continuity of this series stories, and their interaction within it's 7 year run.

I would recommend this product to any serious MacGyver fan, or anyone that appreciates watching mysteries and how the "hero" reasons out the solution to different complex problems.

The movies arrived when they were supposed to, the packaging was done well. I ordered them by separate seasons and actually came out cheaper than if I would have ordered the set. I also read the reviews before I ordered and most said the single season sets were much more presentable than the complete set. I am very happy and if you are a MacGyver fan I would definitely recommend this produce.
