A series about a modern-day American hero, Angus MacGyver (known to his friends as MacGyver or "Mac"), who favors brain over brawn in order to solve desperate problems. MacGyver 's main asset is his practical application of scientific knowledge and inventive use of common items—along with his ever-present Swiss Army knife. MacGyver is a different kind of hero - he doesn't use weapons, he's afraid of heights, and he's an expert at making complicated machines out of ordinary things. A fan, a dough-scraper and some duct tape form an excellent helicopter attack. A cut credit card can help cause a traffic jam. A light bulb makes an outstanding set of lock picks...
