Was MacGyver your idol?

I just finished watching the series MacGyver which shown in TV2 @ 12am every Thursday.




Few Decade ago...

When i was still studying in primary school, I was a fan of MacGyver. I was so amazed with his knowledges and actions to overcome all his challenges. I was so eager to become like him.. Knowledgable, smart and not scare to take up different challenges... I have been placing him as my idol until the series stopped its production... I never missed a single episode even if i had an exam. My mom had recorded the series for me to watch after my exam... Thanks mom~

Now....

When I watched back those old series in TV2... I just laughing at myself as i treated MacGyver an my idol which was not even exist in this world. Just a character in the series produced by the Hollywood... hahaha... TZ was so naive to have MacGyver his hero... :p Just curious, anyone know someone that have the knowledge, workable ideas and look as MacGyver... Can you introduce him to me? I would like to know him :)

Anyway, hehehe... anyone was sharing the same idol as me when you were a kids?

I used to watch McGyver every week and like you was amazed at everything he does. LOL I guess the closest living person I can think of is that guy from the Discovery channel show "Survivorman". He goes to remote places and make things out of nothing.

MacGyver is my idol when I was in primary school until this day. I bought a swiss army knife because of the show.

I am well aware of the MacGyver air time on Friday midnight but unable to watch it as I need to work the next day. What a shame they put such an amazing show so late.

Borneo Falcon: wow! you have swiss army knife coz of the show... * Two Thumbs Up*

Yes, every one who was a kid at the time MacGyver was the rage was most probably a Macgyver fan.

And I also like swiss army knives because of the show. LOL!

I used to like McGyver when I was small. But I don't treat him like my idol. I think it's rare to find such a person in real life. Only happen in TV shows : )

TZ said...

Foongpc: hehehe... so who is your idol?

foongpc said...

I don't think I have an idol. My idol must be perfect and so far, I have not found anyone who is perfect : )
