The pilot episode with the chocolate, although it's definitely a multi use Mac tool lol!

I was about 11 when I saw that. For years I thought chocolate bars could stop sulfuric acid.

It can.

Mythbusters confirmed it o their MacGyver special a few years back.

You'd need bigger bars though.

I just have a mental picture of Henry Winkler being fed up with being famous for the whole jumping the shark thing, and setting out to put someone on screen doing even more improbable things.

One that has always bugged me was in "The 'Hood". Mac was restrained on the torture rack with leather bands around his wrists and ankles that were fastened with snaps. He grabs the metal rod and uses it along with the hand from the skeleton to release the ratchet on the side of the table. Why not just reach across your body with the rod and pry the snaps on the wrist restraint open? So much faster and simpler.

He could barely reach it with his other hand so he had to hand to himself. If you want to pry the snaps open he probably had to go underneath the snap with the rod to wriggle it open and I don't think that was possible.

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.
