Storyline

Mac goes to his hometown to speak at his high school and Jack, Riley and Bozer accompany him. He meets a girl who is very inquisitive. 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. They tell Mac not to tell the police. He and Jack go to see the girl's father. They ask him if he knows the men who took his daughter and why and he says he doesn't know anything. 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.

Quotes

Angus MacGyver: Did anyone happen to notice the football field next to the school?
Jack Dalton: What football field?
Wilt Bozer: Exactly. There was one...
Jack Dalton: Oh...
Wilt Bozer: *Before* the incident.
Riley Davis: Time out. So you two burned down the stadium?
Angus MacGyver: Technically, it wasn't a fire. It was more like a small nuclear meltdown.
Jack Dalton: Oh, I gotta hear about this.
Wilt Bozer: Take the scenic route, Jack. Because it's a *long* story.

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.
