Format: DVD
I grew up with MacGyver, watching him in two different households on two continents (one with subtitles!) as I was growing up. For about three years, after having watched shows like 24, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel on DVD, I wondered when they would release MacGyver on DVD. I raced out in my car this past week when this DVD set was released and prepared myself for a MacGyver marathon.

As I plowed through the first two discs, however, my enthusiasm began to wane a little. The first thing that made me wary was the DVD menu. This is without a doubt the single laziest DVD release I've ever seen -- no chapter selection menu, no commentary tracks, no appreciations, no cast/crew comments (even in written form), no interviews, not even episode histories or a booklet. See, MacGyver had existed for so long in my world that I had wanted to know exactly how the show began, when, and in what context. You will get *nothing* of the sort on this DVD. This DVD set redefines "no frills" -- each episode is divided into six chapters that aren't accessible by chapter menus, only by pressing track forward and back keys. Six chapters per one-hour episode! Do the math -- each episode is 46 to 48 minutes long, so each chapter is eight minutes. In TV terms, enough for four to six scenes.

The picture and sound quality are pretty bad as well. On some episodes this is not noticeable, but on others, I notice degraded sound quality, film scratches, and worse still, shots that look like compressed Avid outputs, where even colour correction appeared to have been skipped.

MacGyver is the original DIY: do-it-yourselfer. You never see him shoot a gun, he's afraid of heights, and he can work wonders with a rubber band and a paper clip. His esoteric scientific knowledge and ability to cobble together commonly available items for unique problem solving is one reason this show is so popular. Murdoc is his arch enemy who can't be killed. Jack Dalton is his self-centered pilot friend. MacGyver works for the Phoenix Foundation, a think tank headed up by his friend Pete Thornton. The Phoenix Foundation routinely gets called in to solve impossible situations around the world.

There are 21 episodes plus the pilot episode. I have read that all 22 episodes will be on the DVD but that the extras have not yet been announced.

1. Pilot: The famous episode in which MacGyver uses chocolate to stop an acid leak after a lab explosion.

2. The Golden Triangle: MacGvyer becomes involved with enslaved farmers in opium fields.

3. Thief of Budapest: A gypsy girl steals a watch containing microfilm.

4. The Gauntlet: MacGvyer tries to rescue a reporter trapped in central America.

5. The Heist: A casino owner steals diamonds belonging to a charity.

6. Trumbo's World: A mile-wide column of ants is moving through the jungle.

7. Last Stand: Mac and a group of people are kidnapped by thieves at a small airport.

8. Hellfire: Mac tries to put out an oil-well fire.

9. The Prodigal: A federal witness wants to visit his dying mother.

10. Target MacGyver: Mac visits his grandfather to hide out from an assassin.

11. Nightmares: McGyver is drugged, kidnapped and escapes. Without the drug antidote, he will die.

MacGyver on DVD!!! (Officially!) This is awesome!

MacGyver is my favorite show of all time. I grew up watching this show from beginning to end and it is so great to see it finally being given a full season by season release on DVD.

For anyone who by some unfortunate chance has never gotten to see this show, definitely pick this set up. (Though I wish Amazon would spell the name right. The "G" is capitalized!)

Here's a few reasons why I like this show so much. Well, okay, the first thing that drew me to the show was the great action and last minute escapes with MacGyverisms. Amazing what you can do with a Swiss Army Knife, duct tape, and your wits! :-)

I really liked the fact that he was against guns, smoking, drugs, and drinking. All in all, MacGyver is a great show that provides plenty of action and entertainment, actual useful knowledge, and a positive role model who portrays good morals. He also was one of the most caring heroes on TV who took time to help others just because they needed help. He really had genuine compassion and kindness towards others. I also like the way that he shook his hand after punching someone. It really showed a human side to him, that it's okay to say "ow" when you hurt. He was definitely a cool hero and those are all the reasons why I still love watching MacGyver today.

I love MacGyver. It is undoubtedly one of my all-time favourite shows, and I am ecstatic to learn it is finally going to be available on DVD. I can only hope and pray it will be available in Australia, because only one of my DVD players is formatted to play Region 1 disks.

MacGyver is a classic action show from the Eighties/early Nineties. It had just about everything - action, adventure, trauma, disaster, triumph, excitement, comedy and even the occasional touch of romance. We have the lead character Angus MacGyver (his first name was finally provided in one solitary episode, much to the character's displeasure), his best friend and boss Pete Thornton, who is head of the Phoenix Foundation, and his nemesis, Murdoch, who pops up every so often with one thought on his twisted mind - kill MacGyver.

One of the highlights of the show was watching the title character get out of the tightest jams using seemingly mundane, everyday objects. As a friend pointed out, put a Swiss Army Knife, duct tape and a couple of wires in the guy's hand, and he could blow his way out of Fort Knox.

Yes, the show seemed silly at times, but that was half the fun, and it made science fun for those of us ignoramuses who just weren't science-oriented.

The beauty of a show like MacGyver was that there were endless possibilities for storylines. I recall a particularly exciting episode in which Mac was employed to break into a hi-tech building in order to test out the new central, sentient computer system. He got in, but then could not get out again when the computer went haywire and tried to kill him for real.
