Top Ten Reasons I Want to Marry McGyver

The boys and I've been watching re-runs of my old favorites. I had forgotten how impressive this guy is . . . even more so than he is in Stargate SG-1. So here are my reasons:

  1. He's always a gentleman!
  2. Kiss goodbye to stressing over all the stuff breaking down around my house.
  3. He'd keep Stephen busy for hours with all the science stuff
  4. He knows about every country in the world--even the little ones!
  5. My spontaneous, impulsive nature would clearly not be a problem for him.
  6. He likes kids and can talk to them!
  7. I'd never have to worry about that tool I misplaced--he can use a pocket knife, twist ties, and paper clips!
  8. Oh, how I've missed that 80's hair cut!
  9. The never-a-dull-moment pace of my house wouldn't bother him.
  10. The boys would have someone to blow things up with!
The only thing that would have to go is that 80's synthesized music. What WAS it with that? Did people really like it?

So, I guess this is a sign of my age, but I read your post and went, "huh? who is macgyver?" Thanks to Wikipedia, I've now been introduced to this resourceful hero. And you'll be happy to know that many others share your admiration:
According to wikipedia, "In an August 2007 survey commissioned by the McCormick Tribune Foundation, Americans polled voted MacGyver as the favorite fictional hero they would want to have if they were ever caught in an emergency."
Pretty nifty.

Aaaarrrrgggghhhh!!! I'm SO old!!!

The best thing about McGyver is that you can watch most of the seasons on CBS' website for FREE!!!

My kids did tell me they like him as Jack O'Neal better (Stargate). Ugh.
