I know some of you will say all of them or you cant pick one but what is your favorite season and why?

Mine is season 4. At this point I think the show has really hit its stride and they really got the show formula down.

Many of my favorite episodes are in this season including

The invisible killers
Survivors
The outsiders

Im convinced MOST tv shows best seasons are 1-5. After that things start going down hill.

After MacGyver is a series that appeals to everyone and each member will have their favorite season and episodes.

Well as you can tell below my profile pic it says season 5. Mainly it was because of episodes like Passages but also various other reasons. The mullet for one thing. I really like it when it's that long and there are quite few episodes that end suspenseful: Halloween Knights, The Ten Percent Solution. Also there is a bit more travelling involved. Cease Fire, Second Chance, Black Rhino, The Treasure of Manco... and one of my top favorites in it: Serenity.

But then again, if I'm real honest with myself, I think I probably should pick season 6 for the main reason, I grew with these episodes as a kid. I had about 17 episodes of season 6 on VHS, 8 episodes of season 7 and 3 episodes of season 2. Also when I'm in need of episodes, I mostly grab back to season 6. Maybe that's why I tend to think the later episodes are better.

I am happy with your testimony in relation to your reason for your favorite season, we all have a memory with this series, me for example, I have an affection for season 7, because it is my first memory of the series, When it aired at the time, I was very young, but that is the first memory of this series, and I remember the episode, it is: Honest Abe.

Tough call, but I might have to go with Season 3. I enjoyed seeing a bit of a team dynamic, with Jack, Nikki and Pete all appearing more frequently (but unlike the reboot, the team wasn't there ALL the time, just enough to make Mac's world feel a bit more fleshed out.) The two-part season opener ("Lost Love") is among my favorite episodes, especially part 2. And we got introduced to Deborah, who made for a memorable villain. Also, while there were a few episodes that dealt with topical issues, it was still mainly a fun action-adventure show, not a "cause of the week" show.

Season 1 for me. It was all brand new and exciting, and everyone was still fresh in their roles. I've always liked the DXS roles best.

Definitely Seasons 3 & 4.

Season 3 because those are the ones I remembered the most when I was a kid, and Season 4, because it seemed that was when the show started to take itself seriously.

Seasons 5 & 6 follow closely. :3

I am unfortunate as I didn't grow up with this series so have no fond memories. Really I think this is because it was never shown in the UK when I was growing up. I started to buy the DVDs during lockdown last year and I am mid way through season 7.

I will say that I prefer the earlier seasons due to the higher number of Macgyverisms and the more action hero style storylines as opposed to the more social justice focused episodes of later season. Not to say that I don't appreciate them, it's just I miss the Macgyver of the first and second episode of season one.

The image of Macgyver in the earlier seasons are what I think of when I hear his name. Thr opening gambits, an internal monologue running while he goes about his Macgyverism, that wonderful Timex MK1, the jeep and a mission in a foreign land.

I plan to watch them all again so I'm sure I will change my opinion as a MacNewbie.
