444: Macgyver Gets Lazy
|Macgyver Gets Lazy
Title text: At the time of this writing, Wikipedia has a wonderful article titled 'List of problems solved by Macgyver'
MacGyver was an '80s and early '90s TV character, famed for improvising complex devices in a matter of minutes in order to escape dangerous situations. In this comic, MacGyver suggests an unusually direct plan—shooting the guard in the head. However, he still manages to describe his plan in a way that makes it sound like a typical MacGyver-style miraculous improvisation.
It is worth noting that in the show, MacGyver was adamantly against the use of guns and never used one (at least, not for its intended purpose) in the entire run of the old series.
A MacGyver reboot was made in 2016 and was not well received (38% on Metacritic, 4.6/10 in iMDb). Despite this negative reception, the series began its fifth season in December 2020.
The Wikipedia page referenced by the title text redirects to the main MacGyver entry since September 2012. The Wikipedia page can still be found in history, and the content has been moved to MacGyver wikia and expanded. As of now, the page redirects to MacGyver (1985 TV series).
- [Outside of a building with a door marked No Entry and a guard standing outside, Cueball and MacGyver are hiding.]
- Cueball: Any ideas?
- MacGyver: I can use the trigger mechanism of this gun to ignite a small explosive charge, propelling a metal slug into the guard's head.
