Rhett Allain - Technical Consultant for the Reboot - started blogging about the "MacHacks" for every episode.

He also adds videos and explanations in later posts, and how plausible the MacGyverism would work (since he's a physicist and teaching at University), so this is pretty cool.

Here you can read his blog post for the Pilot Episode: https://rhettallain.com/2018/08/01/macgyver...pisode-1-hacks/

If you have an account with Wordpress, you can follow it. Otherwise, you should be able to subscribe to his blog via Email. He didn't add categories or tags to the posts, so it's not that easy to find them at random. But I'll try to catch them and will add the link to every episode in the Episode Discussion Forum.

So far, there are 4 posts up for the first 4 episodes.


And that's his introduction about the posts:

Hello and welcome. I should have started this a long time ago, but it’s never too late. In this series, I am going to go through each episode of MacGyver (the reboot) and describe all of the science in the “Mac Hacks”.

Oh, I guess I should mention that I am the Technical Consultant for the MacGyver show – but maybe you already knew that.

I will also give a score for each hack. Here is the grading scale.

Real. This is a real hack that would probably work.
Very plausible. This is based on real science, but might not work – it might require some luck to get it to work.
Plausible. Also based on real science, but it probably wouldn’t work as shown.
Iffy. Yeah, this probably wouldn’t work in real life and it might not even be based on real science.

That's always a sign you might be in trouble if your dashboard is on fire...

Rhett started doing posts for Season 3 so he doesn't forget - he watches the episodes and then blogs about it while it's fresh in his mind, so pretty cool.

I always post the link for each episode post into the correct episode discussion threads for easy finding.


Rhett also did a news segment recently; talking about his work: https://rhettallain.com/2018/11/11/my-macgyver-interview/
