Goofs

Mac pours out the poisoned coffee on the ground to show the other hikers that it has holly berries in it, yet only brown slushy liquid is seen spilling from the coffee pot; there are no red objects visible in the coffee grounds as he pours them out of the pot. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
MacGyver: When Pete Thornton established a stress-relief program for Phoenix Foundation employees, I thought it was a pretty good idea. The four men I was going to meet worked in high-pressure Phoenix positions throughout the country. My job was to take them over Mount Cascade on a 5-day hike. They'd have a chance to blow-off some steam and just forget about their jobs. And me? Well it was just something I liked to do.

basic premise is from the movie "Shoot to Kill" (1988)
3 January 2007 | by (Albuquerque, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this episode and realizing quickly into it that the premise was clearly inspired by a movie that had been released the year before. The movie was "Shoot to Kill" and was about an FBI agent tracking a hiking, camping group (being led by a guide) that contained a recently escaped criminal. The viewer did not know who the criminal was until later in the movie. Part of what made the movie interesting was trying to figure out who the criminal might be.

This episode of MacGyver was similar. You do not know who the criminal is and you find out towards the end. But as soon as the first 5 minutes went by, I knew it was going to be drawing some plot points from the movie.
