The legend of Angus MacGyver is one of resourcefulness and ridiculousness; how else can you describe a secret agent who, as a result of abhorring guns and violence, gets out of sticky situation by making bombs out of toothpaste and paper clips?

The character's random means of escape have given the long-running ABC series its lasting reputation, but what's often forgotten about MacGyver is the fact that its actually a very well-made show, with creative action sequences, Richard Dean Anderson's charismatic work as the man himself, and a playful tone that never takes itself too seriously.
