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 2) DVD features a number of action-packed episodes including the season premiere "The Human Factor" in which MacGyver and the Phoenix Foundation are called upon to test the security of a top-secret military installation.Read more ›
The season opens with the exciting episode, "The Human Factor." MacGyver gets trapped in a computer and has to get out or else he will be toast. There were a lot of exciting episodes from the second season. In the episode, "The Road Not Taken," Macgyver makes a trip to South East Asia in an attempt to rescue a nun and a group of orphans only to discover his ex-girlfriend there.
The episodes are well, MacGyver episodes. This show has never really went away and can still be seen in syndication on many networks. It aired on WGN Superstation at one time. If you are a MacGyver fan you will enjoy this set. The episodes look about the same as they do on the television episodes and just like season 1, there are no new extras. No commentary or interviews. It's Macgyver! If you are a MacGyver fan you will be pleased. This set would also make a great Father's Day gift.
In spite of his struggle with the glaucoma that eventually cost him his eyesight, he continued to work using a special computerized text-writing device. He was a great character actor, appearing in countless movies and television episodes and more recently, in roles tailored for him. One such role was in an episode of ER as a sightless diabetic.
He will be greatly missed.
