Saved by MacGyver's charisma

Author: tenshi_ippikiookami

In the fifth episode of MacGyver, he has to go and steal some diamonds back from a shady casino owner. And even though the episode shows all the traits of a typical MacGyver episode, it is sub-par and just saved by Richard Dean Anderson's acting and charisma.

It is not that the episode is bad per se. MacGyver doing a little bit of a James Bond impersonation in a casino, stealing some diamonds, and giving a lesson to the shady casino owner makes for a fun enough episode. But the invents are not very interesting, and just seem to be there to fill time, as we have seen them all before, and MacGyver doesn't stretch his mental muscles at all. It is also strangely paced, slow and on little bursts of action. On top of that, the bad-guy-of-the-week is not especially interesting or menacing.

A good enough episode, but not as good as one should expect from MacGyver.
