Watching seven seasons of MacGyver
In the past couple of days, i binge-watched TV series "MacGyver", and it made me feel happy
from start to end. The theme song makes me smile even more. As a child born in 1986 i watched MacGyver as much as possible, just like "The A-Team", but i never got to watch all seven seasons. Later, when i was older, i rediscovered actor Richard Dean Anderson in "Stargate SG-1
" and tried to watch all episodes too.
Back then, i only got to see the translated version for the German audience. But now i enjoyed the original version of MacGyver. They started with the TV series over three decades ago, but many themes are still quite contemporary
. Things like roboter, artificial intelligence or speech recognition were already part of episodes. This puts MacGyver almost in the science fiction category, because they were ahead of their time
When i was young, i wanted to be like secret agent "Angus MacGyver", because he finds non-violent solutions and solves problems by making things
out of ordinary objects, like duct tape and a "Swiss Army" knife. I never got as smart as he is, but i don’t have screenwriters working for me either. He and "The A-Team
" influenced my view on justice a lot and teached me how to get things done too. I would be a different person without their existence.
