I don't get any kind of enjoyment from seeing MacGyver injured either....
In fact it adds to my dislike of the episode.

It only gets an average vote from me.

The enjoyment isn't in seeing him in pain, it's in thinking, "I must nurse him back to health!" and happily planning how to do so. I've only just started exploring the world of fan fiction, but "hurt/comfort" seems to be a popular category. I'm pretty sure that it's something in ordinary fiction also - possibly connected to why writers might decide that a character should be an orphan or have physical scars from a traumatic past.

Edit: I swear I wasn't thinking of Harry Potter when I wrote that.

Skiing seems the most likely cause - albeit he does seem 'very' accident prone (and what's all the chatter on the internet about usage of pain killers?).

In a 2002 interview with Vicky Gabereau, he seems kinda surprised that he 'wasn't' injured in his latest skiing adventures ... which seems to indicate that he's been injured in the past while tackling the slopes.

QUOTE
VG:  He's an odd little chappie but he does quite well on the TV, Richard Dean Anderson and what did you do to your - you broke some bits or - or something.  You hurt your knee?

(tact is NOT this woman's middle name!!)

RDA:  (clearly astonished at what she's just said.)  I broke my 'bits'?

VG:  You broke your - hurt your back.  You broke something.

RDA:  You want the laundry list?

VG:  No, but you hurt yourself.

RDA:  (very matter of fact)  Oh, rec -  most recently I had my third knee surgery. I don't know when it was, in  March or so, so yeah, I'm better now.

VG:  When did - how did you do that?

RDA:  Ummm, oddly and ironically I'd been - it was last winter I was - I had had one of the most aggressive years of skiing - seasons of skiing I'd been to Banff, I'd been Heli-skiing, I'd been racing, big crashes, the whole nine yards,  a really nice season. (VG and the audience gives a little titter of amusement)  Not ONE injury,  Not - nuthin.  Ah, except ego.  And that mended nicely.  I was carrying my daughter into her ballet class -

VG:  Carrying her?

RDA:  Well, it was off a parking lot so I carried her across - we were, you know,  got into this hallway and  caught my foot on a nail that was sticking out - it snapped my foot back - let me get real graphic, all right (VG is already looking a bit squeamish)

VG:  Yeah.

RDA:  (really rapid delivery, working it while VG is grimacing and not looking at him)  Snapped my foot back, dislocated my knee, my knee, my foot is pointing backwards so I swing it and pop it back in, it POPS back back in (he's looking right at the camera now) What time does this air?


Full interview HERE

Who knew that a ballet class for pre-school children could hold so many hazards? And poor Wylie.

I can also imagine that, as a parent, he would be torn between wanting Wylie to enjoy adventures like sky-diving and wanting her to stick to dance classes forever. Or maybe reading. Very safe activity, reading. Maybe she could wear bubble-wrap for dance classes, just in case she fell over.

That sergeant who let MacGyver go in the end of the episode played by Michael Shore, I saw him in Youtube where was introducing some toys. He is now Vice President of Mattel Inc, Mattel is the toy brand which is manufacturing for example Barbies and UNO play cards.

MacGyver is his only acting credit.

Well, just think about a hundred some years ago maybe longer that was the only way to cure an infection. And I guess in some parts of the world they still do it. At least it was done with sterile technique.

A couple years ago I was in a no-longer-third world country where one of the doctors that went did have to cauterize a patient. We did have a local anesthetic for the pain. The patient still felt it a little.

I actually like this one a lot. I love all the episodes, but this is one of the ones I'll watch again and again. I love watching RDA with kids. It brings out the best in him, I think.

True. The episodes with child actors are my favorites. This one. The Outsiders, Rock The Cradle, Cease Fire, Strictly Business, Hearts of Steel, Bitter Harvest, Battle For Tommy Giordano to name a few.

I admit it seems unMac-like about his reaction to the guy's death, but we also have to remember that at the time Mac is Very injured. Chances are even Mac would not quite be himself having just been shot twice and crash landing a hang glider. hmm.bmp


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And this from another post "Apparently I have seen to many hard core heroes running around with broken ribs etc. - I remember thinking "Why can't Mac walk if it is only a shoulder injury?"

Well, away from the injuries/pain for a minute: I wonder what would have become of Mac if Ahmed's mother had not allowed for him to stay. He was willing to leave, to not cause any trouble, or even threat to them, you could see it in his eyes, he was determined to do it alone. Wouldn't have come far, though."

Hitting the ground as hard as he did when the hangglider crashed would cause ones body to be sore/hurt. It catches up to you. Fitting that Persis's character would tell him to stay and that he can barely walk.
