* It could potentially be done really well if the movie includes intersecting plot arcs with both casts getting to the resolutions of their respective undercurrent conspiracy plots, and the audience finding out the two are connected. Maybe it could start out with Sam introducing Mike to one of his FBI buddies up in [[BigApplesauce New York]] - who turns out to be Agent Burke. We learn that Burke worked a case closely connected with some of the people that burned Michael. Meanwhile, Neal gets closer to one of his WhiteCollar background conspiracies, and has Mozzie get in contact with one of thier underworld contacts - your friendly neighborhood money launderer - Barry - who happens to have some clue that Neal needs stashed someplace. Unfortunately, that someplace is overrun by bad guys and this deal is out of sight of the FBI. Fiona owes Barry a favor and turns up to run security on the job. In the end, it turns out the conspiracy was much bigger than mere art theft or international espionage, so team BN and team WC will have to join forces to bring down the BigBad.

[[WMG: Michael worked for IMF and being burned is the modern terminology for disavowed]]
This would be the original TV version of [[Series/MissionImpossible IMF]], not the [[Film/MissionImpossible film]] version. Michael's methods tend to mirror the old IMF methods. He prefers to keep violence to a minimum when possible and prefers to lead his targets to self destruct, rather than attack directly.

* It makes so much sense now! [[JusticeLeagueUnlimited The pop bands, the government, Project Cadmus]], ''everything!''

This theory explains why “Moriarty” acts more like a psycho underling (maybe someone like Simon) than a master criminal. He clearly wants to kill Sherlock at the pool, [[spoiler:but is ordered to let him go by a mysterious phone call from on high.]] Also, he [[spoiler:commits suicide]] just as it seems his master plan is coming together. This would be unusual for an arch-villain, but very similar to [[spoiler:Anson’s]] agents, who sometimes commit suicide or are killed to prevent Michael from learning more. So “Jim Moriarty,” like Simon Escher, is probably a psycho burned spy who worked for [[spoiler:Anson]]; this also explains why he is able to produce convincing cover I.D.s (such as[[spoiler: “Rich Brook” or “Jim from IT”]]).

Sam + Fi are aware of this, but being the GenreSavvy people they are, don't say a word. Mama Westen? Woman Michael helped out long ago, developed a soft spot for, and adopted her as his mother. Anything that doesn't line up with this theory? AWizardDidIt + TimeyWimeyBall

[[WMG: Michael is MacGyver]]
He's just changed a lot since the 1980s. MacGyver was a pseudonym to keep people guessing.
* The "street gang" phase of MacGyver was during an earlier burned period. He's not so patient now.

[[WMG: Jesse knew Michael burned him the whole time, or at least very early on.]]
The show goes to lengths to point out that Jesse works in ''counter-intel.'' Sam even directly tells Michael that Jesse is exactly the type of person who would see through him. Jesse later stops and tells Michael, straight up, that he will kill whoever destroyed his life, keeping eye contact the whole time. He figured out Michael burned him before this point, and decided to test Michael by hinting that he knows and seeing how Michael reacts - he might know Michael burned him, but he likely doesn't know ''why''. Michael deflects, and at this point Jesse assumes Michael is just another amoral espionage type. But then Michael does the OnceAnEpisode noble vigilante deed, and this confuses Jesse. So he tries another test - in the next episode, he tells Madeline that she raised a good man, where Madeline also figures out Michael burned Jesse (thereby confirming it for him as well). But Jesse ultimately comes to the correct conclusion by working with Michael, that he's a good person at heart who didn't maliciously burn Jesse. That's why Jesse makes a big show of getting mad when he comes across evidence of Michael's involvement that he can't deny having or knowing about, but he's really only mad for a couple episodes before coming back in the fold.

[[WMG:The show concept was based on [[Series/TheDukesOfHazzard The Dukes of Hazzard ]].]]
Two men who act like brothers but aren't, assisted by a beautiful but scrappy tomboy and a gruff but wise elder family member, aid the local folk in dealing with crime, evil businessmen, and corrupt government influences, while driving a souped up, classic Dodge Charger.

This sounds familiar.
