Not the same, but I've heard Walt Disney lost his mother due to carbon monoxide poisoning from the house he bought her. I hear the guilt ate away at him, so that's why so many Disney characters are motherless.

I guess are youths or guilts reflect on our future lives and the ways we write. My father was never in the picture either and my mother was anything but a mother so I always wondered how a bond between a child and surrogate mother would be like. Just like we see now between Jack and Riley. He considers her as his daughter but he's not her father and she may see him like a father-figure but she's not his daughter. I tend to believe those bonds might be stronger than actual family bonds. Family is so much more then blood.

Not to mention that everyone in the Lenkov-Universe seems to have "Daddy Issues".

Maybe that's auto-biographical? Or just simply a trademark.

Though he mentioned very often that his father's love for "Hawaii Five-0" was the reason why Lenkov was interested in rebooting it: http://dramaquarterly.com/peter-lenkov/

Sooo, Lenkov, what happened to your dad? hmm.bmp

  Aha! Another Christmas episode and what a great one it was with a special guest star and an interesting director.

Seriously this really was a good episode. Bruce McGill was like he never left. More serious but he was convincing. I hope he comes back for more. Just like Joe Santos in Magnum who still played in a couple of Magnum's last episodes as that cop. That I would like.

Interesting take on the show again. What if indeed someone gets killed because of a MacGyverism? Something to think about and interesting charges to bring Mac in.

Love it how Jack was losing it and didn't mind using force to get Mac out. He cares more for the team then anyone else actually.

Yes, Matty finally seems to soften up a bit and I would appreciate her gift as well, though I can't do anything with paperclips.

What slowly starts to annoy me are the so called sarcastic or funny meant location descriptions. Simply "MacGyver's house" or "Phoenix Foundation" suffices you know. The "as if the DIY (or whatever) didn't give it away" was not necessary. It may be a little sarcastic in lighter episode but not during more serious ones.

Also it was interesting to see Murdoc suddenly coming back and put on a twist. Though I don't think it would be so bad if he's name came in last on the credits and Bruce McGill first. After all he was the more important guest star.

Having Carlos Bernard as a director really made me go: "huh? Him? Tony?"

A very good episode and too bad about Cage. That was her apartment? Did you see those lights around that cooking table? Talk about a real nice and cool design.

  I really liked this episode.

Especially loved how worked up Jack was about saving Mac and was ready to do anything required - legal or not - to save him.

Technically, Mac calls Bozer by his last name to, as does pretty much everyone else, and we all know how close Mac and Bozer are.

Interestingly, I don't see much of that closeness anymore.

At first, Bozer was kind of "separated" from Mac by being out of the loop. After he joined Phoenix, he was usually teamed up with Riley (which made sense, of course). Additionally, he has often his own storyline (e.g. helping Jack retrieving the stolen goods, spy school). Now that they've added other locations for team-bonding scenes (e.g. Jack's appartement) and we don't actually see them living together, I also don't see much of Bozer's and Mac's friendship.

When was the last time they had a scene together alone, without one of the other team members of Team Phoenix around as well? I can't remember blink.gif

Neither can I, now that you mention it hmm.bmp Of course, I never really cared that much about Bozer, so I probably wouldn't pay much attention to that. Maybe the season 1 finale? blink.gif

I noticed that someone on twitter asked David Dastmalchian why Murdoc specifically targeted Cage, and he said it was because Mac and Cage are so close. I don't know if that's the real reason, or if that's a substitute answer to avoid spoilers.

Well, if they are close, I hadn't noticed laugh.gif . Also, MacGyver calls her "Cage", not "Sam" or "Samantha". Wouldn't it have hurt Mac much more if Murdoc had targeted Jack, Riley or Bozer?

But... this Twitter user has a point tongue.gif

Maybe Mac was the last number in her phone she dialed? lol. Interesting.
