MacGyver arrives at a new neighborhood in a moving truck. A 'hood of surfer dudes, scantily clad roller-blade girls, bikers that look at the scantily clad roller-blade girls instead of where they are driving to, weirdos that come out of their house every morning at the same time, shouting "I am alive! I am free!", a helpful landlord Mel and an aspiring actress Kelly from across the street. Then there are the two rich old men who have nefarious plans for the 'hood. With neighbors like this, there is no need for criminals, terrorists or Murdock... Written by Toni Tapola, Finland

When Mac yanks the rabbit's-foot charm off the bad guy's belt-loop, the metal bead-chain lanyard separates from the charm and remains threaded through the belt-loop. Yet when Mac hands the charm to Mama Lorraine, the bead-chain is clearly visible, attached to the charm again. See more »

Call me psychic, but when an episode begins with MacGyver moving into a neighborhood full of aging '60's hippies of different sorts, faux hip scoring, a credit for a character named "Robo", and an open-shirt old hippie with long hair, you know a stink fest is about to descent upon you. And if you hang around, you'll be proved right.

A by-the-numbers plot, more clichéd characters that are also overdone, bad writing, and another horribly wasted episode.

Some actress overhears something, blah blah blah, people try to get her, blah blah blah, who cares.

And good God, he's moving in and sharing a space with the aging hipster. I guess this means we'll see him again.

My brain hurts from watching this.
