Season 6 had soe of the best episode in the entire series. However season 6 is when MacGyver began to reach it's peak. Some of the scenes of MacGyver started to become very obvious and cliched. But despite all of that, MacGyver stayed true to it's format.

1.) Tough Boys 9/17/90

MacGyver's pacifist policies are put to the test by a militant youth leader he hooks up with to find out who has been organizing a gang of youthful vigilantes using extreme measures to clean the neighborhood crack problem.

2.) Humanity 9/24/90

MacGyver and Thornton are left to the mercies of a Romanian agent still loyal to his deposed leader Ceausescu after a mission to obtain his secret files is sabotaged.

3.) The Gun 10/1/90

MacGyver searches for a gun used in an assassination twenty years ago and in a present day cop killing to clear a friend.

4.) 20 Questions 10/8/90

MacGyver tries to help his teenage friend Lisa admit she has a drinking problem, but it takes a brush with the law when she's implicated in a string of home break-ins to really wake her up.

5.) The Wall 10/22/90

MacGyver helps reunite an East German girl with her grandfather in America, unaware that she's been recruited by two bitter former Stasi agents who believe the old man possesses a store of hidden gold.

6.) Lessons in Evil 10/29/90

Dr. Zito returns to menace MacGyver and Murphy when he escapes after his latest sanity hearing, leaving a series of nasty clues designed to give Mac a crash course in evil.

I'm thankful that unlike the Simpsons and other series that are being released painfully slow, that there is a new Mac season about once every 4 months. Seasons 5 and 6 were the best two of the show, but here's hoping that the two Mac movies will be released with season 7 since it was shortened after the show was cancelled. With the talented writers we have today it would be awesome to bring back Mac for one more season and a whole new series of missions.

After the let down that was Season 5, I was in two minds as to whether or not to buy Season 6, but to keep the whole set complete, I did. Well, Season 6 was much better! The episodes are more action orientated, and less of the eco-guf that dominated Season 5. However whilst this was a pretty good Season, there was no Jack Dalton in any of the episodes.

All in all, I would give this Season 8/10 (4*)

Wow where do you begin? Macgyver, greatest character ever? YES. An honest, brave, and all around good guy... It's like Q from Bond saving the world when James is on vacation. A little campy at times but that doesn't take away from the family valued action show.

My family loves and enjoys MacGyver so much. This season, however, was a rollercoaster ride of good and bad episodes. It seemed like every other episode was a save the environment episode and that it didn't stay true to what makes MacGyver such a classic and lovable tv show...MacGyverisms.

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.

Simply put "Macgyver" is the best tv show ever! The sixth season does not disappoint. By this time Magyver is already established and we know what to expect. The sixth season does not have as many Magyverism. Magyverisms meaning making things with a Swiss Army knife and duct tape. In fact, I don't think you see him us duct tape at all. But the focus here is on the story.

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.
