A discussion of the show and the possibility of a movie on Salon.
The author does a pretty great job of summing up why I loved this show when I was a kid:
"Though, actually, when you go back to watch his adventures two decades after they first aired, you discover Mac's target audience probably consisted mainly of boys, not men... This jogged in me memories of boyhood, especially of how, after watching each MacGyver trick, I'd feel a bit invincible: I was small, but I was clever. Like MacGyver, I could take them."
