Which episode(s) do you think is the worst of them all?
There's just one rule. I know everyone is going to say The Coltons episode, there for that episode does not count.

For me, well practically that list I send in, in the other topic.

Tell me, how could you not like Passages?

The worst episodes to me are (I think it's ODD TRIPLE), the one with the lady and the man, both are actors, driving in a red car, MacGyver gets with them somehow....

And, another BAD episode is the one with the guy who claims to be under cover and he's late for someone's Bar Mitzvah, and everyone claims he isn't an agent.... Forgot the name of the ep, that's how bad it is.

Well for me, the worst episode would be Thin Ice.

And here is the reason: I don't like hockey very much and this episode is all about it and also I think that there is just 1 macgyverism. But here is something funny about it... in 2002 when MacGyver was airing on our TV my TV was broken and I cannot watch it so later when I was at my friend's home I remembered that MacGyver is now airing so I power up the TV and just told my friend: "I hope it would not be Thin Ice episode" and of course, it was biggrin.gif

I finally figured it out for me. The Enemy Within. That Blonde chick, dodn't know her name, shows about as much emotion and conviction in her character as a cardboard box.

Ingrid. It worked for me. She seemed fragile as Victoria Tomanova said in that dress but I'd say once in a commies uniform she would seem well trained.

Hmm as I can see many of you don't like Ugly Duckling, can you tell me why?
It isn't my favorite episode but I also cannot say it's bad. Another plus it gets for me because this is the only episode I remember from 1997 - the first time MacGyver airing in our TVs here in Slovakia happy.gif

The episode feels fake to me. I guess it is just the way MacGyver acts around the girl. I like the overall idea of a young "MacGyverlike" girl but the episode just doesn't work for me. It rubs me the wrong way. Very hard to explain.

How come, Rock? Of course it's your opinion. I didn't like Thin Ice at first either. I learned to except it at first like a few other episodes. And I always liked The Walking Dead. He's very busy at that one.

Didn't like Honest Abe and Walking Dead - both from season 7...

I have to excuse some of the more vapid episodes from season 1 because, that early on in a show's life, the writers are still trying to find the character's voices and reason for being. Sometimes they get it right - sometimes not. Even so, we continued to watch because there was something about the show we liked and it did get better... Think of all the really odd episodes from season 1 of Stargate SG-1 and there were also some really brilliant ones. The first season is fragile. The last season is tired.

Jump right in there......... dry.gif jeep.gif



That which has been established will endure even with time and at a distance.

I can't tell you anything about what happens after the cameras go off, mostly because I'm usually unconscious by then.

Honest Abe (just annoying... a badly warmed-over version of Jack of Lies... and JoL happens to be one of my faves)

The Lost Amadeus (Lulu... AAACK!!)

Three For the Road (the old guy is seriously stuck-up and irritating)

The Odd Triple and Jack in the Box (the only Mac and Jack eppys I don't like)

The Enemy Within (I agree with earlier posts that both Ingrid and Victoria are really flat and not believable, besides which, the plot seems really convoluted and kind of weak)

Faith, Hope and Charity (I know some people love this one, but the two old ladies get annoying after awhile and the plot is really far-fetched)

Soft Touch (even for a Penny eppy, it's waaay out there)

I donít like the dream ones. (Passages, serenity, MacGyvers women, Good Knight MacGyver)
I hardly watch season 7. Some of them seem like theyíve given up before the end. I donít think they should have stopped at 6 cause there is a few I like in season 7 but I wish those could have slotted in to the short season 6.
There is a few odd ones through the early seasons that I hardly watch, so much so the have fallen out of memory and I canít remember the names right now. rolleyes.gif I hardly watch Thin ice and only even remembered it cause its been mentioned here already. tongue.gif Ones with lack of fun, excitement and general lack of Macness just fall out of my memory. It donít dislike them (like I dislike the dream episodes) its more they hardly registered with me, kind of how I think of the Coltons. It didnít register as an episode that springs to mind when I read the topic title and it was only when Mgod mentioned it I remembered it. That make sense? unsure.gif

Sigh...I've said it before, I'll say it again- I like all the MacGyver episodes just fine.
But obviously others have different opinions- thus the reason for this thread. And that's cool with me.
biggrin.gif

(And yeah- I even like "The Coltons". It was meant to be a spinoff series from MacGyver- so of course, it focused on The Colton family and MacGyver didn't show up much. But he was there in the beginning and the end and I think it served as a great pilot. The Coltons have their own style of doing things and I like their characters pretty well. Had this been made into a show, I would have enjoyed watching it.)

Honest abe, I don't really like this episode much because the main character is annoying. Walking dead, I don't know why I don't like it but I just don't.



Now technically I'm driving a stolen car following a kidnapping... and I didn't even get to have my first cup of coffee. (Mac)
Your burning hot MacGyver... And so is Pete! ! (Murdoc)
Does anyone have a knife?? Yes...it has lots of different blades (Macgyver music plays while mac examines the knief) ...I know
Why are you taking your pants off?? You got a better idea? I'm still trying to figure out what yours is!!

I'll expand a little on my previous posting:

Passages- Flat, boring, cheesy, sappy, overwrought, dramatic, badly written, badly acted, badly directed, hard to watch because somebody screwed up the focus, and a poor (VERY poor) use of John Anderson. My least favorite episode. (That's how I can't like it.)

Eagles- Michael Macrae was fine in "The Challenge"- his evil character was well thought out and solidly acted. Here, he's just another actor put to waste. In particular, the mother is really, really bad. When she realises the villains are, in fact, evil (the eyes should have given it away) she turns wholly unbelievable. Plus the whole damn thing is cheesy as hell. Ick.

Black Rhino- This one covers much of the same ground as "Eagles", but in a more dramatic, even less entertaining way. Cuba Gooding Jr. couldn't have picked a worse episode to introduce himself, and Kai Wulff turns in his weakest performance yet. The $40,000 spent on the mechanical rhino was the biggest waste they ever had.

Log Jam- Not actually a terrible episode, but the female lead is totally unwatchable. Many people I've shown the first few minutes of the episode too were also turned way, way off by her shouts of "Tree killer!" and all that.

Twenty Questions- Lisa was always a terminally weak character, although I could tolerate her in "Cease Fire". This is one episode too many. Her acting is awful- possibly the worst of anyone in the entire series- and the "teen alcoholic" thing is so overused (not just by Mac, but by everyone) that the writers did not need to waste an entire episode of the show on it. Poor.

Jack in the Box- I'll probably get killed for this, but this is, by far, my least favorite Jack Dalton episode. The problem isn't Mac or Jack, or their friend- it's the villains. There are too many of them, they are too evil (by which I mean evil without a reason to be- and yes, I know what drives the episode), and they are poorly acted. And the episode is too "down". I expected a more upbeat vibe from a Dalton episode.

Birth Day- Cheese.

Rock the Cradle- See comments for "Birth Day".

To Be A Man- Was I the only one who thought this one terribly prejudiced? Mac was rarely guilty of that, and when it did happen, it could take down an episode. The performance by a young Ajay Naidu is fine, but everything else is crap.

Wow, so many named Honest Abe, and I found that episode hysterical!! One of the few in season 7 I liked - Good Knight MacGyver being another, besides the last 2 episodes and Obsession, I like that one too. Thin Ice?? wow, what's not to like about Mac in a suit????
I can't stand Trumbo's World or The Walking Dead

Didn't like Thin Ice at first either, but like some other episodes you learn to watch it. Like The Prodigal, Fraternity of Thieves and Gold Rush. Thin Ice has a great second match with the kid hitting his head against the goal. Everybody in the crowd gasping and MacGyver who can't do nothing about it.
Besides MacGyver is trying to teach the players what he learned of Harry when he was young: Fair play.

Passages- Flat, boring, cheesy, sappy, overwrought, dramatic, badly written, badly acted, badly directed, hard to watch because somebody screwed up the focus, and a poor (VERY poor) use of John Anderson. My least favorite episode. (That's how I can't like it.)

Flat: nope, boring: nope, cheesy: maybe little bit, but how would you be if you haven't seen your parents in like almost thirty years. Sappy: nope, overwrought: nope, dramatic: yep, but that's a good thing. Badly written: nope. John Sheppard proofed with this one, that he is the best. Badly acted: nope. Badly directed: nope. Hard to watch because somebody screwed up the focus: that was like the intention of the afterlife scenes. To give everything a peaceful and "dead" look. A very poor use of John Anderson: nope. I was glad to see him again after 62 episodes.
This was like the only episode where they almost succeeded in killing MacGyver. This is a classic.

Eagles- Michael Macrae was fine in "The Challenge"- his evil character was well thought out and solidly acted. Here, he's just another actor put to waste. In particular, the mother is really, really bad. When she realises the villains are, in fact, evil (the eyes should have given it away) she turns wholly unbelievable. Plus the whole damn thing is cheesy as hell. Ick.

I agree on this though. Eagles is not a bad episode but the mother and the boy... oh boy. And dog's barking didn't match either.

QUOTE
Log Jam- Not actually a terrible episode, but the female lead is totally unwatchable. Many people I've shown the first few minutes of the episode too were also turned way, way off by her shouts of "Tree killer!" and all that.

Have you seen the chainsaw fight?

Jenny's Chance is all the more worse than this one. Jack in the Box is indeed the darkest adventure to me that Jack pulled Mac into. The villains were cool enough. Lance Legault always plays these kind of characters and warden Renfro was okay too. Those were actually the only real two villains. And Lyle also had just two scenes or something. Robin Mosley was just a little squealer and that guy Mac asks if he'd seen Jack Dalton just showed up for a brief minute.



I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.
Sometimes you just have to die a little inside to be reborn and rise again as a stronger and wiser version of you.
It's better to be a little sad than to be fake content.

In your mind, maybe. It would seem that not everybody else thinks exactly the same way you do. I don't dislike "Passages" as a personal affront to you.

I, too, agree with MG and j12752. Passages is a great episode. One of my all time favorites. We get to see MacGyver "tie up" some loose ends--finally getting to tell his parents how much he loves them and that he was sorry for not being there for them. And, he gets to tell Harry goodbye.
