MacGyver's ice hockey epic with a message!
29 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode strays from the usual tone of a MacGyver adventure and is more of a sports story in the tradition of films like Hoosiers and Rudy. In a change of pace, MacGyver is asked to substitute for an ice hockey coach and gives him the chance to offer guidance and advice to a group of teenage hockey players who have their sights on reaching the "big leagues" and being selected to play for a professional team.

The main plot line deals with one of these young hockey players who is faced with a moral dilemma as to what is an appropriate way to reach the professional leagues. He must make an important decision while dealing with pressures from parents, agents and the lure of big money. MacGyver plays the earnest coach who tries to help him make a good choice. In light of recent scandals in professional sports of some who take questionable shortcuts (such as steroids) in their quest for fame, the topic remains timely and ultimately offers a positive message for young people thinking of making a career in sports.

As an "unpaid extra" who "acted" in this (9 hours of acting for 3 seconds of glory), I am happy that this important episode of MacGyver is now preserved for your viewing pleasure as part of the DVD box set for season 3. Scan the crowd scenes and you will see my face and many others popping up again and again in the background. We got moved around a lot to "fill out" the crowd scenes.
