Goofs

The merc who is masquerading as Bigfoot would not have rampaged around the pilot's cabin smashing instruments and controls, since he would know that the ship needed to remain operable to ferry out the load of bootlegged oil. See more »

A pretty cool episode with a sort of appearance by the legendary Bigfoot
11 January 2007 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Sasquatch makes a sort of appearance in this pretty cool and enjoyable episode of the popular long-running action adventure TV series. Shrewd and resourceful government special agent MacGyver (excellently played by the likable and charismatic Richard Dean Anderson) goes into the Alaskan wilderness for a basic maneuvers exercise. MacGyver stumbles across a rusty abandoned ship nestled on a remote woodland lake. Curiosity gets the best of MacGyver and he boards the boat. He immediately runs into a bestial, aggressive and inhospitable Bigfoot. He also finds and rescues a fair damsel in distress. The show starts off well enough, with a careful, involving build-up, an eerie aura of mystery, a bunch of Native Americans popping up to explain the legend of Bigfoot, and an imposingly monstrous Sasquatch all lending this episode a satisfying sense of genuine creepiness and uncertainty. WARNING: Possible *SPOILERS* ahead. Too bad the second half degenerates into formula action banality, with the Bigfoot alas ultimately revealed as an artful ruse devised to cover up a band of dastardly oil thieves. However, things nonetheless conclude on a pleasingly ambiguous note with the suggestion of a bonafide Bigfoot roaming around somewhere out there in the vast expansive forest.
