Best episode so far.  :cheers:

wow, they must be fond of the CRKT knives, they appear almost every 3-4 episodes,
and that Spyderco is a rare one, the Volpe, introduced in 2005, it only came in those characteristic stainless steel scales with wood inlays  8), and it's very odd to see it on a modern TV show  :think: and especially carried in the open position on a kydex sheath  :dunno:

It was made in Italy, in Maniago, by FOX Knives, if I remember correctly  ::)

It is interesting and weird to see a Spyderco carried open in a kydex sheath, let alone a rare discontinued model.  :salute:
And I also like the M21 design. A welcomed guest star.  :like:

Terrible episode.  :rant:
The story was so weak, it hurt. The Ghost, a nemesis of Mac who had been underused so far, but built up to be a main villain, was just passed off as a generic single-episode bad guy. Also the story was so boring, full of bomb-centered action flick cliches, and the 'twist' was so predictable and insignificant, I started laughing out loud the second they revealed it.
Every other line was exposition so unnecessary, it boggles the mind. It's like Captain Obvious narrating the DVD commentary. "We're in a room now." "The bad guy is not here." "Oh, there's a bomb here." I have eyes, thank you.

As a side note, this thread is now up to speed with the series. Every episode that has aired so far has been viewed, examined, and catalogued with the clearest still shots I could get.
Episodes will be posted as they are released, hopefully anyway, and I intend to watch all of them, regardless of liking the series or not, which I currently do.

Another helplessly mediocre episode. This one goes through the plot-point checklist of the traditional virus-oriented movie. Captain Obvious was the writer once more, as characters comment on each other's comments, leaving nothing untouched. "The CDC is asking for help." "The Centers for Disease Control needs us?" "They have an inventory discrepancy." "So they lost something." Goodness me, are these characters aware they're in a TV series? Is this show aimed at five-year-olds?
Riley's side-plot was utterly boring. And I could not care less about Leanna. She has no chemistry with anyone. Also, George Eads was there. The best actor and arguably the most badass character in the series, and you relegate him to comic relief? Why? Bozer is in this. Why is Bozer portrayed like a seasoned government field agent, but Jack, who is a seasoned government field agent, is treated like the goofy sidekick?

If MacGyver makes it to a fourth season, it will do so without George Eads. TVLine has confirmed that the actor has decided to leave his role as Jack Dalton during the second half of the CBS reboot’s current third season.

According to THR, Eads stormed off the series’ Atlanta set in October following an unspecified altercation during production of an episode. He eventually returned to the set. His final episode is slated to air in early 2019. Eads had reportedly been asking to be released from his long-term contract in order to return to Los Angeles (where his young daughter resides).

This episode was a mixed bag.
The Mac & Jack story was fine, but a little silly, and they even acknowledge it in the episode.
Show content
Set-up of the movie Saw

The ending 'twist' was so predictable, but I was glad it happened just I expected it to, because I like Jack. Plus three different SAK models, so I am happy.
Also, I thought "fallout" meant Mac and Jack would clash as an excuse for Jack to be written off he show, but it was just a reference to a bunker.

The subplot was just interchangeable filler. It could have been in any episode and it would not have changed anything. They've probably filmed a bunch of these and use them randomly in episodes.

Bozer is insufferable in this episode. I hope they kill him off. He adds nothing to the episode, his character is not believable or interesting, and apart from his name, he has no connection to 'MacGyver'. His scenes could have been in any action series and you would not know it was supposed to be MacGyver-related. His talent of making masks and prosthetics has been forgotten, which is silly, because they recruited him for that very skill set.

Leanna is plain boring. I feel no connection to her, no chemistry with any other cast member, no special skills are displayed to warrant her presence. She knows how to fly a chopper. Why not use that in an episode? She is on the team just because she is the love interest of Bozer, and yet they still act like strangers around each other.

Great episode. No subplot this time, and no Leanna, but sadly no Jack either.
Great performances, I hope we see more of the guest actress, she was amazing.

What a great episode.
An excellent wilderness setting, and a small subplot that did not take away from the excitement of the main plot.
This episode respected the spirit of the original series, fitting more in there than the remake. I could easily picture this episode with Richard Dean Anderson in the lead, the main plot anyway.
The guests provided good performances, which helps the episode even more. Riley was great in this. Bozer was alright. They chose to make Riley the 'good student' and Bozer the 'do I have to' student, but he pulled his weight.
Of course, a few plot elements were a little predictable, if you watch action series. Still, these are forgiven, thanks to a well executed story, great performances all around, a nice natural setting, and knives.
Two SAKs, plus our favorite CRKT, and Dave Canterbury's book, and maybe a Zippo, to compliment the cast. Props to the props department.

I know many fans of the original series did not like the direction of this series, but if you can watch this episode, do it. It's good, old school fun.

Good episode this one. Only one plot, and a good one at that. No insignificant b plot, just Jack leaving. Goodbye sir.  :salute:
I hope you find a way to return for a few episodes, or even for good. We'll see.
Good action, plausible plot, good performances from main cast and guests. I liked the story, and the resolution.

Well, Jack's replacement is here. I did not like her immediately, which is a common tactic of introducing a replacement character. She did badass stuff, she's cold, she's smart.
By the end of the episode, I did not hate her, but as I look back at the chemistry between Mac and Jack, I cannot help but miss Jack. Desi so far is just a generic action series character. Mysterious, smart, distant, and female.
At least she did something, unlike Leanna and Bozer who just spat out some exposition and stood around for the rest of the episode. I thought Leanna had been written off, and in this episode, removing her entirely would change nothing. She and Bozer could be the replacement of Jack in the field, making mistakes as rookies, endangering Mac and the mission but solving it by the end, having Maddy scold them, seeing them work with their relationship and the new challenge of working together with Mac.
But no. Let's just have them do nothing, and introduce yet another character.
Cage was great. Why can't she come back?  :'(

Mindless action, uninteresting attempts at drama, and a ludicrous premise.
The whole set-up is boring and not at all plausible, and gets absolutely ridiculous as the episode progresses, approaching sitcom levels of silliness. Can secret agents really talk about committing treason on their phones and in their headquarters? Without SWAT teams bouncing on them?

Ethan is an interesting character. No matter how much they try, I still don't give a smurf about him. No matter what predicament he finds himself in, it's always the same. I do not care. I am watching "MacGyver". Shifting the focus of the main story to an underdeveloped guest character of such little relevance to MacGyver made me eager to see the episode end.

The Coltons are the most boring side-characters in here, rivaling Leanna's insignificance. And to waste Riley in a yawn-inducing side-plot with them, what a shame. She carried that whole storyline, hopefully for the last time.

This is a re-imagining of the episode "Countdown" in the original MacGyver, where Mac and Charlie have to disarm bombs on a ship.

What an episode.  :like:
Great performances all around. Peter Weller is in this. He really elevated the episode.  :salute:
Excellent writing and directing too. Maybe keep this crew for every episode from now on? Or at least assign them to more episodes? Please?

Wonderful cold opening. It sets up everything promptly, demanding my attention and gaining my interest.
We are quickly introduced to the new main villain, and I look forward to seeing him more.
Through a tragedy and the resulting conflict, we see further character development.
No side-plots. No insignificant characters, no sitcom silliness. Just a well paced, interesting, intriguing, entertaining, and very promising main plot.

This. This is what the show needs. If it had started like this, more people would have watched it. I can only hope this high level of quality continues.

I would be comfortable to call this the best episode yet. There have been other good ones, but it has been a while since I watched them, and I have done so only once. Still, this episode was an absolute joy. Perfect blend of drama, action, and MacGyver. :2tu:
I do not know how I can recommend the final episode of the third season, but if you can somehow watch this, then watch it. :cheers:
