MacGyver Tidbits - Duct Tape Central


What was especially endearing about MacGyver was his ingenuity. That guy could disarm a nuclear warhead with a paper clip. Although he was always in dangerous situations, his abhorrence of violence impelled him to use his brains instead of weapons to get out of sticky situations.

Starting in the 11th episode, MacGyver worked for DXS (Department of External Services) which was like a CIA type organization. It isn't until 1987 that Pete and MacGvyer move to the Phoenix Foundation.

There wasn't much MacGyver couldn't do with either his trusty Swiss Army knife or the ever present roll of duct tape. A ball point pen could serve a myriad of functions. MacGyver's ability to improvise came to be known in the vernacular as "to MacGyver" and the rigged inventions as "MacGyverisms."

MacGyver's friend and boss was Peter Thorton played by Dana Elcar. In 1991 when Elcar was going blind due to glaucoma, they wrote the illness into the storyline.

There were some fun recurring characters. Long before she moved to Wisteria Lane, Teri Hatcher played Penny Parker. Bruce McGill played the hapless Jack Dalton. Michael Des Barres as Murdoc was MacGyver's evil nemesis.

MacGyver never used his first name. Folks called him Mac. It wasn't revealed untilt the seventh and final season in a 2 parter called "Good Knight MacGyver." Angus. His name was Angus.

Passings

Dana Elcar died in June of 2005.
