* CollapsingLair: At the end of "Legend of the Holy Rose", the Temple of the Holy Rose collapses, burying all of Ambrose's miraculous artifacts (although Mac and the GirlOfTheWeek are outside at the time and so do not have to flee through the collapsing temple). Mac speculates that Ambrose had intended this to occur all along.

* LoadBearingBoss: Erich von Leer in "Legend of the Holy Rose, Part 2". When von Leer is killed, he stumbles backwards into the entrance of the Temple of the Holy Rose, which proceeds to collapse on top of him, burying the temple. (Properly the collapse is the result of a secondary explosion caused by the FrickinLaserBeams that kill von Leer, and Mac speculates that the original designer of the temple intended for his work to be buried.)

* TheHashshasin: In "The Legend of the Holy Rose", the Brotherhood of the Hashshasin is one of the villainous groups after the Elixir of Life supposed to be stored in the Temple of the Holy Rose.

Added DiffLines:

* FrickinLaserBeams: In "The Legend of the Holy Rose", Mac realises that Ambrose's artifacts can be assembled together into an optical pump: a device that captures and amplifies the sun's rays into a laser beam. True to this trope, the laser beam is visible and red. The episode's villain dies when he steps in front of the optical pump just as the sun comes out from behind a cloud.

Mac would travel all over the world performing missions for good ol' Uncle Sam, retrieving spy satellite information and helping defectors from CommieLand get to the United States, but spent most of his time in California. He seems to have had several [[BusmansHoliday Busman's Holidays]] as well.

The man seems to have had a plethora of ex-girlfriends and "old friends", who would turn up every so often, usually in need of help, though more often than not they would get killed in the first few minutes of the episode. As the show went on, an increasing percentage of episodes were devoted to Mac's attempts to help an old friend out of trouble.

It is however, probably true that later seasons had a few too many [[VerySpecialEpisode Very Special Episodes]], an indulgence that likely led to its declining popularity.

Still, the show remains hugely memorable in the US (it was heavily referenced in the ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' as a favorite show of Marge's sisters, Patty and Selma, and is parodied in the regular ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' skit ''MacGruber'' where Richard Dean Anderson [[ParodyAssistance once made an appearance]]). It shows in prime-time in Indonesia and Ukraine. According to TVCream, it didn't really work in the UK - but then it doesn't like the show (and CBS Action in, well, the UK began airing the series in February 2015).

TheFilmOfTheSeries was set to be released in 2011, and then 2013, with Dino De Laurentiis as executive producer. Following the death of De Laurentiis in November 2010 it remains to be seen if the production will continue.

series a few television movies were made continuing his adventures. In the early 2000's a pilot episode was shot called ''[[SpinoffBabies Young MacGyver]]'' featuring Mac's nephew Clay [[note]]Even though he was an only child[[/note]] joining the Phoenix Foundation, starring Creator/JaredPadalecki, but was not picked up. A FilmOfTheSeries was [[DevelopmentHell in consideration for years but never materialized]]. In 2015, in partnership with the National Academy of Engineering the original series creator invited people to submit ideas in remaking the show. In 2016 (with no overt connection to the prior project), a new series pilot starring Lucas Till was picked up. A complete remake, this time [=MacGyver=] is paired with two other agents to form a PowerTrio as they handle high risk cases.
