His teacher tells Mac that the girl is behaving strangely and before he could tell Mac more some men show up and demand the girl. Mac tries to stop them but doesn't.

He tells them that he will do what they want and wants Mac to leave him alone. Mac and Jack keep an eye on him while he has Riley and Bozer see what they can learn about the men who took the girl.

User Reviews

Back to school

MacGyver goes with the team (and now annoying extra Bozer) to his and Bozer's old high school where, obviously, they get entangled with some bad guys keen on being very very mean.

Having an episode outside of the extraction-mission mold is a breath of fresh air to a very stale formula that helps giving this episode much needed energy. However, that this is the only thing that the episode does outside the model of previous episodes doesn't help in making the episode better. On the one side at least we don't get the 'curious' observations of around the world lifestyles from other episodes. On the other hand, Bozer is all the time on screen (or it feels as if he was).

And MacGyver's 'invents' are few, not very interesting and very much far in between. After an acceptable beginning, "MacGyver" is falling deeper and deeper into irrelevance.
