Storyline

MacGyver interrupts his car voyage after witnessing at night what seems an UFO landing. Meeting young Tommy Wiley, who pouts having to move to a paradisaic planet as his father, a simpleton farmer in debt, sees no other hope for his terminally ill mother, Mac smells a rat. Indeed, the 'phenomenon' is staged cleverly by the crook couple Ray and dawn Rigel, who charge the farmers the price of their farm, but will stop at nothing to cash in and move on. The sheriff has no basis to act, except against Mac. Written by KGF Vissers

Why doesn't MacGyver just call up Pete and have the Foundation bail him out? This would be far from the first time the Foundation has helped MacGyver out financially when in a bind. See more »
