Why not? With so many different items in the SWU, pretty sure a character could make a lot of interesting things.
MacGuyver is incredibly cheesy on so many levels I just don't even know what to say.
I think it's cool when a character is resourceful with the elements that are around them. However, when they are doing something that is completely ridiculous like defusing a nuclear warhead with a stick of chewing gum and a paper clip it pushes the BS envelope a bit too far for me to stay captivated. Plus mullets are not cool ever.
