Storyline

Mac and Jack pursue a lead on Nikki but it's a set up. She left something for Mac which he needs to figure out what it is. But before he could Thornton sends them to Germany. It seems like a woman is going to testify against her employer who is selling weapons to enemies of the US. She received an email from an agent telling her to meet him by train. But Thornton says the agent was killed before the email was sent. So her employer is setting her up. So they get on the train and find her. But there's a team of assassins who are out to kill her. But when the team stops them, they decide to just destroy the train by disabling it causing it to crash. So Mac needs to find a way to save everyone on the train. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Getting better every week.
22 October 2016 | by gijoe50000See all my reviews

So this and the previous episode (Russian nuke) seem to have been the best to date. The first few weeks were so muddled and choppy that I'm not really sure what they were about. The Macgyvering is getting better, closed to the original series which is good, and the episodes seem to be more fluid. There still needs to be more episodes with only Macgyver though, like the original series where he just stumbles into a situation, or falls off a cliff while rock climbing, or whatever. Every episode doesn't HAVE to be a mission. That said, I'm more hopeful for the series than I was a few weeks ago. Hope it keeps getting better, and a bit darker.
