Trivia

Deborah performs a clever "getting into character mode" action --- using a multi-tool instead of an ordinary flat-tipped screwdriver to install the bug inside the wall-socket --- to better understand what makes the Swiss-Army-knife-toting MacGyver tick. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Remick: MacGyver.
MacGyver: Mr. Remick.
Remick: Its beautiful, isn't it? And it won't change, you know. I mean, I - I don't know what you think you're protecting. We don't want to see it change, either. The beauty of this land enhances the value of our own investment. I mean, you think we're fools; act against our own interests?
MacGyver: I think your company's first priority is to get your marina built.

One of the better..
30 December 2018 | by erikbojessonSee all my reviews

Well.. first of all I love Macgyver as a show. It is not too realistic but it doesn't matter too much since it doesn't try to be. It's mostly about entertaining the audience and with one of the most sympathetic heroes in movie history.

However, to me I would say that this is one of the more realistic ones. Deborah is a great character and more believable than many of the other villains in the series.

Overall, one of the better episodes of show.
