the demo of the rerun was higher and audience almost as high as when it premiered about a year ago. too bad it's because of such a sad reason...

  If you missed it, there will be a rerun of this episode next Friday!

  This was a great episode written by our own Lee David Zlotoff.

A great wink to MDB's other career as a singer, which made of for a good start.

The one thing I would've changed about this episode was that I would've kept Bozer in the War Room and taken Riley instead. In fact, I wouldn't have mind if Murdoc killed Bozer. He had a great chance to do so. Sorry 00Boze.

David Dastmalchian, always a good thing to see. He really enjoys this role and he is one of the best tv-villains I've seen, even if he took over the role of MDB. When I see DD I see MDB from Strictly Business but there is a big difference. Reboot Murdoc seems to be having some sort of respect for reboot Mac and a little dark sense of humour which I like.

MDB, he rules, we all know that.

A great fight scene between reboot Murdoc and our Murdoc. It was quite violent and I never thought (though it might have been a stuntman) to see MDB bounce of the bench like that, hitting each other against the lockers... That was awesome. Just weird that it was Bozer to save the day at that moment.

So maybe their may have been a few 'duh' moments but I'm willing to forgive, after all it's written by Lee David Zlotoff.

Am I the only one who hates the fact that Murdoc has been caught THREE TIMES already? This episode was great, but Murdoc needs to stop getting caught lol. The whole locked up and escape routine gets old.

I prefer the horror movie type bad guy who always seems to die and comes back to the ones locked up.

Wonder if Murdoc's real name is Dennis or if that's just what Helman knew him as.

Going at it the same way like they did in the original... I don't know. They always did things differently. And not so long ago everybody was complaining because Jack's been filling the graveyards and seemed to like it as well. They finally get someone alive, even if it's the same person for the third time, and now you don't like it?

Besides am I the only one who noticed this episode's ending mirror Deadly Dreams? They bring in one villain back to their cell, where his accomplice/protégé/master is waiting in the cell across the hall? Is this whole a set up to a Deadly Dreams like episode?

How can one guy take out a whole security facility, with a one-action shotgun....?

If Arnold can do it, so can MDB.

Here's the blog post by Rhett Allain about the MacGyverisms: https://rhettallain.com/2019/04/07/macgyver...doc-helman-hit/

Looks like Rhett forgot he had already written a post for this one, because he just posted another one today. Seems like someone is in need of a holiday tongue.gif

  I watched this live but I had been on vacation so that is why I am first commenting on it now.

Truth is this is the first time zi have ever watched a complete live. I was looking forward to MDB having a big role and went to the trouble, even waiting to see the movie I would normally have gone seen that Friday.

It was good. Great to see Michael have more to do. Keep in mind I have seen very little of this series. So my opinion may have little value....

I share the feelings of others here. Mac himself was way underused. One of the big problems I have had with this series all along is he feels like just another member of a big team, cast. Not the lead, title character. I would probably feel that way even if the originally show never existed.

Considering this was an episode they should have expected casual viewers to have more interest to watch than others, they should have given Mac a bigger role. Instead of supporting cast members who would not be that familiar to us.

I like David as this new Murdoc. I enjoyed him in others roles too. But a Murdoc who is constantly captured makes him a completely different character. Which is fine to an degree. But it runs the risk of overexposure.

Helman and Murdoc as fellow prisoners works more as a joke than really what best suits the characters.

I will check in again next time MDB returns. But that will likely be at least a year from now. It did nothing to motivate me to watch as a regular viewer.

  I enjoyed this one well enough, MDB is always fun to see...but I feel a little cheated in that MacGyver himself was so underutilized here. Could've been a great mental "three-way dance" (to use a pro wrestling term) between Helman, Mac and Murdoc.

The nice thing is I don't think we're done with this story thread by any means.
