He's Macgyver! He-ee's MacGyver! This is the MacGyver show!
Civilian: Thank you Senior MacGyver.
MacGyver: Don't thank me; thank the moon's gravitational pull.
— The Simpsons succinctly sums up the entire show.
Angus MacGyver is an award-winning chemist and physicist who basically is the action-hero equivalent of Mister Wizard, Indiana Jones, Bill Nye the Science Guy, James Bond, and both Mythbusters all wrapped up in a leather jacket and a glorious head of feathered blonde hair.
