Ha ing caught the new (2016) MacGyver, I decided to go back to the old. For me, no comparison. Briefly, the original has heart, humanity and wit. Richard Dean Anderson plays the inventive hero with the lightest touch of self-deprecation, which makes for a winning combination. The stunts are pretty impressive, especially considering the comparatively limited special effects of the day. The action of the plot gets me past any dated aspects (although I could do without dresses with shoulder pads). While not compulsively binging on this one, I'll probably stick with it for all six seasons. Definitely worth a trip back in time.
