  Here's the blog post by Rhett Allain - Technical Consultant for the Reboot - about the "MacHacks" used in this episode:
https://rhettallain.com/2019/01/28/macgyver...notes-scissors/

Only 2 MacGyverisms he talks about:
> Stove Bomb
> Cheese puffs to get past phone lock screen

  If you do, I'll turn into Murdoc. But even as Murdoc, I'm nice. Take your pick. tongue.gif

Well we're into season 3 now so I can tell you exactly how it progresses if you like.

  That is interesting though. Well, times change, yet I would be interested in what Stephen Downing would have to say about these changes. But currently I have no problems with the changes so far.

  Well I know for a fact that Zlotoff has no input to the show, other than the 2 episodes he's written. He's a producer in name only.

Henry Winkler is heavily involved in the editing process, so he's clearly on board and approves of most, if not all, changes going on.

  I feel like quoting the first two lines of my review of Corkscrew here. I'm not sure if I should bother.

OK, Bozer has finally got Riley's phone number but it hasn't been acknowledged whether or not they're in a relationship. So? Is that necessary after only 1 episode? Maybe that's meant for later? Lots of the critique here is aimed at stuff that couldn't have been possibily known at the time. Might be a little late to say that since I'm only catching up but give it a little time to develop.

The episode itself was exciting even though the hint from Corkscrew was pretty obvious. And actually I kinda liked Patricia despite her coldness. Just imagine if Pete was a traitor. In the original this would've only worked if it was a set-up and MacGyver was in on it the whole time. But Pete making a 180 turn and actually turning his back on Mac... *whistle* it would've been outrageous.

It was also great to see Murdoc again, even though it was briefly. I get the idea David Mastalchian is really trying to do his best with it and to have fun in playing the role. And of course Nikki as well. They sure can twist it around. Instead of making her simply a traitor, keep her switching sides. Nice touch.

Did you also notice that this MacGyver's birthday is also March 23 as he pushed on Nikki's cellphone: 0323? 03/23? And since MacGyver earlier stated that the KGB was disbanded before he was born would make this MacGyver's birthday March 23 1992.

I for one am very interested how the series will progress from here on.

When it comes to Mac's passions whether or not this is the producers or writers faults... Despite Henry Winkler and Lee David Zlotoff are on board you might wonder how much say they have in this and I don't think it's much since Peter Lenkov is in charge. Yet Zlotoff created the original and Henry Winkler was in charge of that one. Maybe they seem all to agree that the adjustments are necessary to fit with the new generation instead of maybe the slower paced original.

  Final ratings via Showbuzz. Of Season 1, this Episode has the third-highest audience numbers and the third-highest demo-rating (along with Episode 1x15).

That's 9/8 Central Time right? Isn't Ruler playing that night too? So it's one right after the other? hmm.bmp

oh, sorry Dragondog. looks like I missed your post earlier blush.gif

Yes, initially there were two episodes scheduled (1x17, then 1x12 instead of H50). But when I checked again yesterday morning, they had scheduled "48 hours" instead of 1x17.

Not sure why they decided to give it the usual MacGyver slot at 8pm ET/PT (since they never had planned to air an episode of H50 anyway).

No problem, Dash.

It would have been nice if they had aired them both last night. Maybe they'll air "Ruler" again some other time?
