As everyone else has said, picking a favourite is very difficult as there are so many good episodes.
I will say though that although I have the series on DVD there are three episodes that I have also bought on iTunes and downloaded onto my iPad for easy access or to be able to watch when I can't get to the DVDs and those are
- series 3 episode 8 The Widowmaker
- series 3 episode 15 The Negotiator
- series 4 episode 3 The Outsiders
On relfecting on the content of those episodes it seems as though I'm more of a 'whump' fan when it comes to Mac than I realised
For the past few months I've also been watching the complete run of MacGyver from start to finish as I know a few other people here are currently doing or have done in the recent past. As it turns out B and I are up to about the same point, which is around the middle of season 6. The one I am on currently is episode 14 Eye of Osiris.
It has been absolutely great for me as I have not seen any of these episodes since they originally aired when I was a kid, so I only vaguely remember very few of them, so I am watching them all for the very first time and enjoying them very much.
So if anyone wants to chat about any of the episodes they're watching or have watched recently - or any fav Mac bits of any of them - I'd be happy to oblige
I am happy to discuss the MacGyver episodes. Yes, I am going through MacGyver from start to finish. And I am on Season 6. I think this is probably my favorite season - as it has so many episodes that I especially like.
Each episode in Season 6 is good in its own way.
One I really like is "Humanity". It really shows the madness that was Coucesceau's Romania (which is a time period in real history that I remember well). I am glad the episode was post-Coucesceau - which is so good for the people of Romania and of the world that he is gone. But it shows that some people in that country still yearned for the "old ways".
Odds and ends about this episode:
The character "Victor" in that episode was totally fierce looking.
I loved the shirt and coat that Mac was wearing at the first and then the sleeveless shirt later when he had bandaged his gunshot wound. I also liked his haircut. Mac's look was soooo good (Thunk talk here) - especially when he was sitting on the bank of the stream and talking with Victor.
Always good to have a "whump" of Mac somewhere in the episode - and he always recovers.....so the fact that he was shot in the shoulder helps make this story hold together.
I was not surprised when Mac came back to help Victor when he was snakebit. And you always wondered if Victor would "lose it" and go back to his old ways - which he did eventually.
I thought the "reflex" comment by Mac and then later by Victor was meant to be funny and ironic - and it was.
And I thought the "solution" when Victor used the grenade to end it for his former commander was a nice surprise ending.
The final act in which Mac lifted the dead Victor's leg back up onto the stretcher was touching and it fulfilled the point of the story - an act of humanity.
Overall - a very good episode - one I really really liked.
How about anybody else?
