1MacGyver wasn't cynical, and he wasn't ruthless. He didn't torture his adversaries to get information. Some media company did a poll about which fictional character people would prefer to have with them in a crisis or a natural disaster, and the overwhelming majority - like twenty percent more than the rest - said MacGyver, before names like Indiana Jones, Jack Bauer, James Bond, etc. I found that very illustrative.
2To be quite honest, I can only claim a modest part in the whole MacGyver story. It's like when your child goes into the world and is wildly successful. You obviously played a crucial role and can be proud of that, but it's not really your achievement. It is mainly the achievement of the immensely talented people who spent their years and lives making MacGyver what he is today. Not to mention the literally billions of fans who embraced the character and have made him their own.
1Graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School.
