Hello, everyone! I'm Sanguine & I'm a recent college grad. Nice to meet everyone!

As is par for the course for me, I'm joining a fandom about 30 years too late. But luckily, it seems like this is a pretty cool community...and what I lack in "experience," I'm more than making up for it in sheer obsession. laugh.gif

My female parental unit introduced me to "Good Knight MacGyver" way back when I was wee, but it didn't quite take. Then my brother started watching the show with her a few months ago because he was interested in watching the reboot. I didn't care about any of it until one day, my brother was watching "The Widowmaker" and I saw a hot guy with a flamethrower and some landmines. That was pretty much the beginning of the end for me. happy_dance.gif

Now, of course, I'm absolutely addicted and my familia has been working our way through the entire series. (My brother is, of course, infinitely smug that he's seen episodes that I haven't.) laugh.gif

Favorite characters so far are Murdoc & Penny Parker. I love Jack and Pete and Mac, too, of course. Favorite episodes so far are Halloween Knights, Secret of Parker House, Cleo Rocks, and---well, basically all the Murdoc episodes. thumbup.gif sak.gif

Welcome aboard!

If it'll make ya feel any better, many of us watched the show when we were kids (myself included) and it didn't click until later in life.

I have noticed too that many fans seem to get hooked due to the Widowmaker episode, again... myself included. XD I remembered watching it as a kid, and was the episode that made me decide to rewatch the series. I've been hooked ever since!

That actually does make me feel a lot better! I'm kicking myself now for all of that wasted time. All of those years that I missed out on! But I guess in a lot of ways, I'm grateful that I got hooked on the series as an adult, because I think now that I'm a little older and wiser, I can appreciate a lot of things that I would've missed as a kid.

It doesn't surprise me that The Widowmaker is an episode that attracts a lot of fans. That ep basically has it all: the emotional plot, deep friendships, plenty of action, great suspense, and a memorable villain... Not to mention a mountain.

Thanks for the welcome, by the way! I'm a little socially awkward, so it's always an interesting experience for me to get started in a new community. biggrin.gif

Better late then never!

It's really exciting how many people still get hooked on a TV show that is over 30 years old. And yes, it was the Widowmaker Episode as well for me that hooked me in happy.gif

Welcome!

Welcome aboard. It's a great place with great people.
FYI...I'm pretty socially awkward myself, but being in here and chatting with everyone has been very easy and fluid.
