Simply put "Macgyver" is the best tv show ever! The sixth season does not disappoint. By this time Magyver is already established and we know what to expect. The sixth season does not have as many Magyverism. Magyverisms meaning making things with a Swiss Army knife and duct tape. In fact, I don't think you see him us duct tape at all. But the focus here is on the story.
These stories each have meaningful messages whether it be the dangers of pesticides, dangers of alcohol, or the dangers of glaucoma. And just as important the stories engage the viewer. If the stories weren't interesting the messages would be lost.
Why did Macgyver end in season 7 and was season 6 just the series maturing and about to end? I don't think the series had to end. I have read some fan fiction about Macgyver, and it is full of new ideas. For instance one fan fiction explains Murdoc always surviving because he was an immortal. It was a cross over from "Highlander". And yes, Murdoc is back in season 6. If you are a fan you know Murdoc episodes are always good.
So as the series winds down there is still some great episodes. But did Richard Dean Anderson (who plays Macgyver) know how to do any of the things Macgyver does? My guess is that he knows more than he admits.
Also there is rumors on the Web about a possible movie. How true that is I don't know.
So you see even though the tv show ended, there is still much fascination with the show through fans. That is through their fiction and over the Web. If you are the least bit interested in Macgyver, you should get seasons 1 through 7. And if your younger and are new to Macgvyer, there is no show like it on tv today.
