I think it's a coincidence that Kelly is also an actress. And I like her more than Penny.

And I don't think this was meant as a Penny episode since Mac moved to another neighborhood. I really don't think he would like to live in a neighborhood knowing that Penny lives across the street. tongue.gif

Imagine the look on MacGyver's face if he found out it was Penny living over the road from him.

He might be inclined to move somewhere else FAST! roller.gif

When talking with Mel:

'I had good smoke detector.'

Mac sees Penny. Closes the truck again and leaves. biggrin.gif

Mac wouldn't have certainly lived in a place knowing that Penny lives across the street. ohmy.gif

I saw this episode yesterday after quite a long time because it's not one of my favourites. Not bad, but others are better.

Starting with the neighborhood, it's a little strange for Mac character. Something unexpected, like the man yelling in the morning, Robo who paints his wall. Also Kelly, like Mac says "If she just could loosen up a little". And Mama Lorraine with her woodoo. Not bad, just strange neighbors.

Also I don't like the music for the bad guys, but it's just a detail.

Not considering these two things, the episode is good, but not so good to watch often. It's probably true that in 7th season they were tired, they repeat some things of previous seasons. RDA wasn't fed up because he liked the character, but he said he was phisically exausted (who wouldn't have been?). So the fact that he knew they were the last episodes didn't encourage him.

I liked MacGyverisms and all in all it's not a bad episode, I voted ok.

I have to vote ok as this is one of the very few episodes that I do not remember what happens in it. Everyother episode I can remember most of what they are about or what happens. This one is just a blur to me. I am sure it was because I didn't care for it much.

Not among the best, but it was nice to just see a fun adventure without any sort of moral or preaching or anything. It's kind of a "guilty pleasure" episode for me.


So the unsubtle message about the importance of having good smoke detectors slipped right past the "preachy script" detectors ...

It's funny... I never considered MacGyver preachy. I think it was my upbringing.... that and I currently work for a pastor. I always felt MacGyver was pretty laid back in regards to moral stances.

Just me? Probably... XD

I just watched this for the first time. It's a pretty good episode that moves along nicely and with fine mix of character actors. Bobby Lee is channeling J.D in Thelma & Louise, I think. And my gawd, Bozer(present series) is drawn/taken (at least in part) from Robo, I believe. hmm.bmp

Oh yeah, interesting that Mama Lorraine uses the term 'mojo'. Before it flooded into the sports vernacular in the 1990s - I had never (knowingly) heard the term - and not until recently did I even know what it meant. And still not 100% certain when heard within certain phrases/descriptions.

I think 'mojo' means mostly an object like a talisman or amulet that contains a certain power. Mama Lorraine says Will can't fight her 'mojo'. As she preforms the voodoo trick on him she uses few things out of her bag. In the voodoo religion mojo is mostly something like the bag she has with her containing magical items during the voodoo scene.

Also in The Walking Dead, she says: 'this is evil mojo, MacGyver'. Probably because the doll came out of the voodoo religion and him poking it with his knife might bring bad luck.

Austin Powers also speaks of his mojo in the movies that contains his sexual strength.

I don't remember hearing the term in "Live and Let Die" .... which was all about Voodoo and the Americas. But that was the 1970s. If you substitute the word 'magic' in, you can sort of make it work for most usages in the sporting world. Be interested to hear from our American Members and if the word was known to them growing up and/or if they've used it themselves and/or if they recollect a time when it went more viral than not ....

I don't use the term "mojo" myself. Though, I've heard it used in different contexts. It greatly depends on where you're from too.

When I think of the term "mojo", I think of areas like Louisiana, where voodoo is generally more common.

Magic and witchcraft seems to be a more "southern" thing as well, for whatever reason. For instance, when I moved into my apartment, I found a "freezer prayer" in the back of my freezer... which is a hoodoo spell.

In which case, fire purifies, so I burned the sucker... just in case.

Gotta love the internet... XD

I can honestly say i don't believe in magic of any sort. A practice known solely by reputation to scare off people who might still hold their superstitions close. I think most of the exposure seen is just forms of theatrics just to make people fear the unknown.

Magic is actually just creating illusions and tricks. It can be used to entertain (The Prestige, Harry Potter) or scare peoples. Do I believe in magic? I don't know, maybe. It won't hurt to keep an open mind but I think MacGyver's not far off by saying that everything his a logical scientific explanation and that the supernatural is just a way to explain the things we don't understand. But like I said, I like to keep an open mind as well. On the other hand I think most magic, religion and superstition rests on mythology. That's why I think there is so many of them... Greek, Egyptian, Norse, Haitian... Pretty much every culture has their version of the creation and death and magic. And now I'm digging deeper in the voodoo belief and their characters, it sure tickles an interest for me.

The way I was raised was the spirit world was never something to be messed with, because you can end up inviting demons into your house.

For myself, I never had any experiences with the supernatural. Though, one time I was at work, and I thought I heard voices. It's a five level 160 year old church, and it is believed to be haunted. One of our custodians told me that he sometimes hears muffled voices, and believes spirits of old parishioners still linger in the church.

I have an open mind, but I'm generally skeptical. Usually those things can be explained.

For instance, my mother once claimed she could see demons. But since she'd see these things when she woke up, we believed she had a form of sleep paralysis. Sleep disorders triggered by stress seems to run in my family.

I remember one time I woke up standing in front of a wall trying to kill an invisible spider. XD Happened once, and never happened again.

Mojos were chewy green, spearmint, nougat candies growing up in Canada ... recipe from the UK, I believe. When I first heard the term, I thought that 'getting your mojo on' was somehow about that .... or getting your 'chew on' or biting into whatever task it was that you were taking on. I was dead wrong. blink.gif laugh.gif
