Know this guy?
He's a favorite of my son's. We currently have the first four seasons of MacGyver and plan to round out the series. I have to admit, I am a Richard Dean Anderson fan too. Loved him as MacGyver, and even before that, when he played the oldest brother on the brief "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" remake.
My SIL and I (over Jimmy John's Sandwiches - I think) were talking about how MacGyver is an icon. He is referenced in pop culture. We could each name at least one current tv show that had made a reference to MacGyver.
Face it, who else could save the world with a paper clip and some mayo?
MacGyver is a unique character. His special talents combined with his backstory and his quirks make him stand out in the crowd of tv characters to the extent that when someone mentions him by name, everyone knows who he is. How did a science geek with a penchant for health food and an extreme dislike of guns come to be the character we know and love as MacGyver? Wouldn't it be great to have characters like this?
What is unique about your current character? How does his talent, quirks, and past make him the man he is in the story?
