[show]Throughout the entire run of the series, MacGyver states many times his opposition to using guns because of a childhood event. However, in the pilot episode, "Pilot", he does in fact fire a gun, an AK-47, and then quickly hands it to the pilot he's rescuing to provide cover fire. This aspect of his character was probably added after the pilot as he makes no mention of his distaste for guns.
- MacGyver's favorite sport was always ice hockey. He is often seen wearing a Calgary Flames hat. There was even an episode where MacGyver coached a young high school hockey prospect.
- Dana Elcar's Stunt Double was Don S. Davis. Don S. Davis became "Gen. George Hammond", Richard Dean Anderson's superior officer on Stargate SG-1.
