Hmm.... this was like the second one I liked less then previous ones. Yet again, we are in more MacGyver-territory just like in Pliers. It's actually weird. The more it becomes MacGyver the less I seem to like it. Talk about having things upside down.

The beginning was just lame. All the effort to get that guy in a helicopter. I would've understood if it was the big guy from Bitter Harvest. If I think about it this guy reminds me of Buddy from Last Stand. He may be big and tough but he's stupid.

The nod it may have given to On A Wing and a Prayer was there but a little subtle. I prefer On A Wing and a Prayer over this one. And I agree with most what was said here. Instead of focusing the episode on the matters at hand, the bromance and banter got in between that. There was too much cutting back to Bozer and Riley but Riley gave some strong emotional perfomances. Strong enough to assume she has feelings for Mac? Bozer felt out of place. Maybe 4 is a crowd but I can dig it if he would just work at the lab, like Willis did.

Nah, this episode didn't do it for. Weakest so far. Interestingly, I didn't like Flame's End to much either. Both 13th episodes are bad, or does it have to do with the number?

When it comes to score... the music sometimes reminds me of John Powell's Mr. and Mrs. Smith especially in the relaxter scenes. Just listen to the track Playing House when Mac and Bozer are talking at home for example. Yet the score doesn't bother me much.

I'll get into Matty in the next episode.

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.
