My favorite was in the pilot episode. Chocolate bar sealing an acid leak. It's always the first one I remember.

This is the one that I always remember first, too. Although, I probably would have eaten all the chocolate before I reached the leaking acid tank.

I still love the Human Factors MaGyverisms. The newspaper and the lense to make a scope, using the dust & jacket for the hand scanner. The rope for crossing the floor to the entrance & the magnets in the paper, setting them alight and throwing them on the heat seaking drones. Marvellous! laugh.gif

I really liked how he used the flare pistol to escape the small submarine after being locked in it by the villains in "Deep Cover" (Season 5 Ep. 17). Also, another favorite of mine is in "The Gauntlet" (Season 1 Ep. 4) when he slides the map under the door and then pushes the key out on the opposite side, landing on the map. He then pulls the map out from under the door with the key on it. While nowhere near as dangerous as some of the other ideas, I always thought this one demonstrated how powerful an idea can be when thinking in such a way to solve a problem that may sometimes seem difficult.

Those are both great MacG.gif In fact, I just posted the one with the map as one of my favorites too.

Totally agree. Those are the types of MacGyverisms which I like too.

One of my all time favorite MacGyverisms is from Lost Love where MacGyver is testing the security system of the Ming Dragon. The security guy says "They can't avoid the lasers because they can't see them" to which MacGyver grabs a hand full of soap powder out of a nearby cleaning cart and throws it into the laser making the beam visible and responds "They can now." and proceeds to climb between the now visible laser beams.

For me that scene is iconic to the show. Dressed in bomber jacket and light tan trousers, taking a simple every day item and using it imaginatively to overcome a situation without even blinking an eye.

I see that Macgyverism the same way. Some of the ideas that didn't directly involve any villains or immediate danger are just as important to me as the ones that did because of the way they demonstrate Mac's way of thinking so clearly. Of course, RDA wearing the classic outfit always helps too MacG.gif

Favorite MacGyverism?

Probably Partners where Mac and we first meet Murdoc and then Mac uses a paper clip, a monkey wrench, a shoelace and Jack's cab to take out Murdoc's cronies who had bazookas.

Same with me....I NEVER would have thought of this one!

I got asked this question in a live radio interview a few months back with no prior warning. I kinda fumbled through it at the time, but ever since then, it comes back to haunt my thoughts from time to time of how I should have answered.. hind-sight is always 20-20.

Anyway it just popped back into my head now, so I wondered what you guys would have answered to this question with the briefing to keep answers as short and too the point as possible because they had to be translated into Spanish and your live on air.

Question: Whats your favorite MacGyverism?

Answer: ... ?

It probably wasn't all that realistic, but I really liked the plane from the beginning of Legend of the Holy Rose.
