Goofs

This episode is supposed to be set in the spring/summer/fall, since there is green grass, ferns, etc. growing in the area, yet in many of the beginning shots of Mac driving his jeep to the trail-head's parking area, there is heavy snow along the road. 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.
