tribute # 247 - MacGyver

MacGyver became a shorthand
7 years, 139 episodes

never smug, ever alert, polite
thinking on his feet, improvising

refusing to carry guns when confronting them
talking his way around

getting others out of danger
with minimal harm

resourceful, exemplary Canadian

Ah! And regularly mentioned on The Simpsons, which puts him on hallowed ground in my eyes.
