MacGuyver...The Classic, Dec 26 2006
MacGuyver will always hold a special place in my heart. It all began when I was three years old and awoke to a giant rumbling sound outside our little five acre house hidden in the woods, on the outskirts of Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
A truck carrying a gigantic EMP, from the episode "Easy Target", had made a wrong turn trying to find the shooting location, a store only three hundred metres down the road. I remember my parents helping the driver to back the truck up our long driveway. For a three year old who loved action a 20 foot long laser gun left a permanent impression.
Following years of watching that single taped episode of "Easy Target" as I became an adult I realized how cool the show was. I invested in Season 4, in order to have a DVD copy of Easy Target so I can show them the truck from my story. What I discovered was a classic show, that fairly consistantly entertained.
Owning three seasons so far (4,5,6) Season 4 was definatly my favorite. However no episode of MacGuyver has lived up to the scope of "Easy Target" which had the feel and drama of a mini-movie.
One of the joys of MacGuyver has been seeing many of the local areas I grew up in. Just two days ago in Season 6 I saw an episode "Humanity" Where a gun battle takes place in the forest connected to ours. A forest we had our own paintball gun battles many years later. Having since moved, MacGuyver offers nostalgia to me that it could offer few others. And I'm happy it offers good drama...with a bit of family history.
