MacGyver is the toughest guy – watch out Chuck Norris

In each MAKE we have a special column called MakeShift, by Lee D. Zlotoff – Lee is a writer/producer/director among whose numerous credits is creator of MacGyver. So, I’m always on the look out for MacGyver news… and this just came in – MacGyver tops TV tough guy poll, the thing is – MacGyver was never “tough” he solved puzzles, made things, thought his way out of problems and never used a gun or violence. Maybe this is a shift in what we’re celebrating and what we want in our heros?

All that said, he did have one awesome move – the tornado punch!

    I hope that tornado punch leads to a dance craze called “The MacGuyver”.

    Makeshift is one of my favourite pages in the magazine. I love coming up with solutions, I just wish I had the patience/focus/whatever to sit down and write them up, but I find I’m one of those people who’s always making or reading and never take the time to document.
