The Widowmaker. It was an emotional time for MacGyver and Murdoc didn't give him time to grieve. mad.gif

I always felt kind of sorry for Murdoc. I think he was a great character. Just wish we had known a little bit more about his background and what made him tick.

Oh, I loved Murdoc!!!!

Michael played him so perfectly! tongue.gif

I just watched "The Widowmaker" again last night, after many many years,
and when I saw Murdoc, I was so w00t.gif

I mean, I don't like it when people try to hurt Mac (or anyone),
but, Murdoc just does it so well!!!!!

My only complaint was that he should have been in the series more than he was! evil.gif

Although the episodes with Murdoc were extremely good, all I could do was just hate Murdoc through the TV because he just wasn't a very likable character.

I adored Murdoc - he was a very, very determined man!


All though ... he was determined to destroy Mac - which wasn't certainly wasn't all that nice!

I call it an obstacle course. Some of the others call it MacGyverland.

Murdoc's either my favourite character or a very close second. Love the way he and Mac interact - he brings out aspects of MacGyver's personality we wouldn't otherwise see, helps to fill out the character even more.
Wish we could've learned more about Murdoc. He's inventive (often to his own undoing), persistent, talented and nearly indestructible. And under his diabolical persona, there's a good heart and a sense of honour. His backstory must be interesting, to say the least.
He seems like a man proud of his skills and accomplishments, so it must have killed him to have to stuff his pride and ask MacGyver for help. Made for a great episode, though.



I love sunrises. They're like a smile from upstairs and divine assurance that everything's going to be okay.

I think Murdoc is probably the creepiest and most psycho bad guy, but sometimes he come across as a little cheesy....still, that can translate as melodrama. And sometimes I think Murdoc thinks too hard and that's why Mac always gets away in the end. I mean, Mac has escaped from him how many times??? and just by simple means like cutting a climbing rope.... laugh.gif

I was intrigued when it turned out Murdoc had a sister... made him more interesting. Also, I often thought of Murdoc as the flip side of Mac... what Mac would have been like had he been a bad guy. And yet, for all of Murdoc's creepiness, his humanity did show through from time to time. He wasn't totally one-dimensional.

Murdoc definitely ranks as one of my all-time favorite fictional villains... right up there with Voldemort (yes, I'm a Harry Potter fan, if you haven't figured that out from my signature).

Haha... I was just saying to my girlfriend the other day that it would have been hilarious if on the final episode, as Mac and SAM ride off into the sunset, their motorcycles suddenly explode killing them both, and then we cut to a scene of Murdoc hiding behind a tree with a remote detonator, laughing, and saying, "Gotcha!"

I think he's awesome. I've seen two episodes featuring him so far and I love him. I can't remember the other episodes he is in, I may have been too young at the time to remember those early episodes.

He's creepy, funny, insane, and just plain bonkers. Whats not to like?

My favorite villain (and possibly my favorite irregular character). He was unpredictable, maniacal, and completely insane, making him a fun character to watch. And yet, at the same time, he was not just a flat, typical villain. His character had depth, and it is shown that he definitely has a sense of humanity (especially in Halloween Knights).

My brother and I use to cheer for Murdoc and got all excited to see him try and get Mac. Something about villans like that, I just love them. I also like Sylar in Heroes.
That would be creepy if Murdoc had abilities like Sylar, the indestructible one would explain why he keeps coming back and all his wounds would heal. That would for sure freak Mac out if he saw that!

To me, Murdoch has always scared me. It's only recently that I've seen episodes where he talks a bit about his past. He tries to push the blame on Mac, but also trying to impress other assassins.

Still a psycho though, excellent character.

Murdoc is the right amount of being insane, creepy, professional and funny all at the same time.

Yeah there is a certain amount of Wylie Coyote amusement to Murdoc, although at the same time the way he finds death and torment to be as highly amusing and entertaining as he apparently does adds to his evilness. So it kind of works both ways at once.

I think Murdoc is great.
He walks that tightrope-thin line between creepily insane on one side and laughably cheesy on the other without ever falling off laugh.gif

Having just watched 'Two Times Trouble', I also find it interesting that Michael des Barres, villain extraordinaire and recovered trustee of modern chemistry, was one of the founding members of Rock Against Drugs.

They really do - according to Wikipedia (that veritable font of all knowledge!), he's also done volunteer addiction counselling and worked with homeless teens. Could the MacGyver state of mind have rubbed off on him too?

In other news, he's a serious musician and has done tons of TV acting besides being Murdoc...
Busy guy!
