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.

One of my favourite episodes. Simple, but exiting episode.
13 February 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The story couldn't really be simpler. An escaped convict is in the forest. MacGyver and some co-workers are on a stress relieve program out in the forest. no one knows each other, and any of them could be the killer.

What I like about this episode is how everyone (except MacGyver of course) could be the killer. We have no idea how he looks, and every character has this little feature that could mean he's not who he's supposed to be. Everyone fits the description to some degree. But throughout the episode one after one is proved to be the real thing, and that eventually only leaves us with one guy.

It's a realistic episode, MacGyvers inventions are believable, and the episode is neither to grim nor to light hearted. I just thinks it's a great mixture of suspension, drama, humour and simple MacGyver adventure. "Invisble Killer" has always been one of my favourite episodes, I give it a 9/10.
