Just Like Before
Appearing in the series with the character Angus "Mac", MacGyver works as an operator in an organization that actually does other works that looks like a think tank called Phoenix Foundation. He is a highly skilled and ex-army officer who managed to defeat them by using his intelligence instead of killing them to defeat their enemies. He plays an active role in solving problems and catching criminals by taking part in many secret missions with his practical intelligence. Instead of killing them using weapons, he challenges them with objects, from the smallest to the largest, by using extraordinary methods to neutralize the criminals. And in the end he surely wins.
