This season 2 episode of MacGyver uses an intriguing interweaving of the military and the deaf community, both using the same high tech new device for far different purposes. MacGyver works with humor and respect among the deaf children who are to benefit from this device, and with precision and then alarm, among the military. Throughout is a dream sequence which slowly unravels into true life, helping MacGyver unravel the mystery of bad guys who appear on the base. I also enjoyed a "timing device" MacGyver rigged with near-nothing materials. Throughout, this episode focuses on interesting realms of science and technology just recently discovered and still in testing phases, which is fun. But already the bad guys have a use for it! Good cast.
