MacGyver (S02E07) “Duct Tape + Jack”

Review:     There doesn’t seem to be a situation Mac (Lucas Till) and Jack (George Eads) cannot get out of. With Mac’s ingenuity, there is always a way. Defining the odds makes it one hell of a ride and a wonderful form of entertainment on our television screens. This episode isn’t one to disappoint…

MacGyver (S02E01-06) “Diving Into Season Two”

  This fast paced and action packed show is back for another season. The dynamics of the Phoenix Foundation are growing and so are their numbers. We are introduced to Samantha Cage (Isabel Lucas) in the first episode of the season. She is an expert in her field, reading people and knowing exactly how they tick….

MacGyver: (S01E11) “Scissors”

Review: Riley disappears while Bozer was yapping away about his x-mas brisket. He calls in Jack and MacGyver who can’t get a hold of her and find out that it looks like she’s made a run for it. Their boss calls them in and it gets worse for Riley. She’s the number one suspect behind…

MacGyver: (S01E10) “Pliers”

Review:  MacGyver meets a tiny, female version of himself and it’s super adorable. Jack rents a tiny green car. Bozer goes on his first mission. This is what the description of this episode should be.  MacGyver avoids going back home but he does because his old, very inspiring science teacher asks him to come talk to…

MacGyver: (S01E09) “Chisel”

Review:  This episode picks up where the last one left off with Bozer still angry from finding out about MacGyver’s secret life. He has to go through a background check to determine if he is a security threat. This, as you might imagine, makes him even angrier.  A simple snatch and grab…of a person…becomes more…

MacGyver: (S01E08) “Corkscrew”

Review: The episode where Bozer learns the truth. dun dun dun  MacGyver is actually finally moving on. He does an escape room with a girl but rather than try to escape he makes out with her. Get it Mac…lol  At least he got his make out session in because the date got cut short. A…

MacGyver: (S01E07) “Can Opener”

Review:  *Disclaimer: Written while depressed because of the results of the US Election.* Riley searches for an apartment and with the help of a bad British accent she gets what she wants. Congratulations to her because it’s her first piece of independence and freedom that she’s wanted since leaving prison.  MacGyver and Dalton go undercover…

MacGyver: (S01E06) “Wrench”

Review: I’m accepting MacGyver for what it is; a cheesy procedural with moments of intense emotion. Because of my acceptance, this show is beginning to grow on me. This episode added another arc. In addition to the on going Nikki hunt, the hunt for the Ghost has been introduced. The Ghost is a bomber that…

MacGyver: (S01E05) “Toothpick”

Review:  I’m starting to get annoyed at the inconsistent nature of this show. Some moments are great, some are typical. Some episodes are good, some are sub-par. I want to say that they’re still finding their groove but I feel like I’ve used that excuse for this show already.  The episode started out with Dalton and MacGyver…

MacGyver: (S01E04) “Wire Cutter”

Review:  Slowly MacGyver is growing on me. I think it’s because the writers are pumping it with witty one liners. They are not, however, concentrating on making the show less…typical.  This was very much a mirror episode. Dalton and MacGyver are having some trust issues because Dalton found out that MacGyver is still searching for…

MacGyver: (S01E03) “AWL”

Review:  Was this like the week of cuteness and team cohesiveness or is is like some general, unspoken rule that the partners in buddy cop shows are supposed to be at their optimal wittiness once the third episode rolls around? Whatever the answer…I’m just glad things worked out this way.  The episode starts out with…

MacGyver: (S1E2) “Metal Saw”

Review:  This episode wasn’t too disappointing.  It was action packed and had a few chuckle worthy zingers.  It started off with the guys being chased through North Korea because they kidnapped someone. During this chase Dalton mentions to MacGyver that “he needs his A game on this one”. MacGyver does a double take and asks what…
