Overview

He's the only secret agent who refuses to carry a gun.

It would only slow him down. Although he would cheerfully take it apart for the components.

Angus MacGyver is the only spy around who lacks a fine killing instinct. And he isn't a world-class martial artist. Nor is he is a master of disguise, a multi-linguist, or a master marksman.

What he does have is a background in physics and chemistry not to mention a keen and inventive intellect. With bubblegum, paperclips, duct tape, and whatever common everyday objects he happens upon; MacGyver is capable of improvising whatever tool, weapon, gadget, or device needed to save the day or cheat death. When it all seems impossible, MacGyver makes it possible!

No matter who he's up against from ruthless saboteurs to enemy spies to brutal assassins; no matter what sort of fanciful death trap awaits him; no matter how creative his adversary ... Mac is always one step ahead of them! Whatever the situation, he always comes through with his ingenuity and savvy intellect. Proving that he doesn't need a gun, because his mind is the greatest weapon of them all!

MacGyver was an American television series that was a moderate success, garnering a loyal fanbase following of the world's most resourceful secret agent. Faltering ratings however led the series to being cancelled after seven seasons although two made-for-TV movies was released in 1994.

The character of Angus MacGyver has become an undeniable part of pop culture with the term: "MacGyvering" used to reference when a person uses common everyday objects to improvise fixes.

The TV series also inspired a Saturday Night Live sketch series, "MacGruber" which also spawned a feature film, MacGruber in 2010.

Popularity in the series remained high enough that there was several commercials made with Richard Dean Anderson reprising his role as MacGyver and there was consideration for a new spin-off series, Young MacGyver which would have focused on a nephew of MacGyver following in his famous uncle's footsteps in 2003 but only a pilot was made but never developed.

A new reboot series MacGyver premiered in 2016.
