Well... with my experience, it wasn't thinking about other people that kept me up at night... but... err... *ahem* What I had to listen to coming from the next room... and it was done on purpose.  Hopefully Mac wasn't subjected to that level of torment.  That would have been a bit cruel.

I'd have left wink.gif

I did... lol I slept in the car.

Well, she did tell Sam to come to bed while Mac obviously heard. He's hearing someone he loves saying to another man to come to bed, while he clearly needed to be with someone. That is cruel. Try to sleep after that and sneaking out during the night wasn't an option since he came by plane.

And yes, they were both wrong. It is nice to see though that even if Mac plans something like a vacation, it didn't turn out the way he expected and he has to deal with that. It can even happen to him. Actually this episode belongs in the category of Mask of the Wolf and Easy Target. Two episodes where he seemed to be moody, well it's obvious considering the circumstances in this one. In the other two, it was like he had was having a rough time and you had to leave him alone.

Not really about Mac & Karen, they are really asking us the questions, aren't they? Trying to get into thy kitchen a bit, no? I mean they know that we've all been through this to some degree, and they are trying to draw us into this episode, chest first, by the emotional heart strings. Relationships vs career choice, should I stay or should I go, catch them down the road a bit, on the rebound, and he/she will still be welcoming with open arms . right!!! - maybe, maybe not .. hmm.bmp

Probably why I like the show so much. It's probably one of the most relatable shows I've ever watched...

You can see yourself in Mac's shoes, so you can easily understand how he feels. That, and despite this, he's still a good guy that tries to help people. It is a show that makes you stop and go "hmmm" hmm.bmp

I noticed that MacGyver gets a lot more moody in later seasons as well. Kinda goes with the territory of being a nice guy with a hero complex. I have a friend that is exactly the same way. He gets frustrated with people because he tries to help, but it usually backfires on him... or he ends up getting used. He vents this frustration on a regular basis.

Does that friend get asked to help? If people only know you when they need help you need to get new friends I think or move your houseboat to an unlisted marina and change your phone number.

Mac really has to learn to say no and stay by that. Then again if he does say no, there's no episode. But it wouldn't have hurt either if Mac had to ask Jack for favors a little more with exception of Lost Love and On A Wing and a Prayer of course. At least once per season.

Coincidence. biggrin.gif

But come to think of it, this could've actually been a great Mac/Nikki episode. This could've been the episode where Mac and Nikki actually grew towards each other and could've started an on-going relationship and talking about all recent events of what happened with Mike and Deborah. But then we'd probably have a smilar beginning like in The Widowmaker with Nikki going after Mac again in the woods and they have to change Murdoc with poachers, if the poaching angle is needed. Still not a bad idea though.

"Karen" has gone on to do some really good things as a writer/producer, and after parting ways with Mac, btw.
