Five Seasons of MacGyver on DVD

Creating an impromptu smokescreen, plugging an engine hole with egg whites, and dismantling a missile with a paperclip were all in a typical day's work for television's fictional alpha maker, MacGyver. With the recent release of the complete first three seasons on DVD, we now get to relive all of these amazing MacGyverisms.

As a kid, the show inspired me to invest several weeks unsuccessfully trying to create explosives out of pine cones, but I feel it was time well spent. MacGyver is one of the few shows that doesn’t make feel me dumber after watching it, and that's the main reason I love it so much.
