MacGyver

MacGyver is a different kind of hero - he doesn´t use weapons, he´s afraid of heights, and he´s an expert at making complicated machines out of ordinary things.

    The first two seasons of the show was shot entirely in the Los Angeles area. However, as an adventure series, ABC was ready to cancel due to the price of location filming and time spent moving the production crew over a 6-day shoot schedule. With threat of cancellation, the Producers, including Henry Winkler decided to send the show to Vancouver where location moves could be made within an hour.

For Season 7 production returned to Los Angeles.
