That's the first time a MacGyver reboot episode broke my heart as much as a Voltron episode

The hand-shake after Mac punched the guy biggrin.gif

Bozer's pastrami is going to pop up every year, I guess

Considering Bozer doesn't know how to "let [Mac] down gently", I can understand why he's afraid of heights tongue.gif

Seriously though, seeing Matty lose her composure to the point where Jack has to comfort her and calm her down shook me up. Amazing acting on Meredith Eaton's part

I forgot about the new series when the hockey playoffs started last spring. First episode that I've watched since. Not bad entertainment but those short clip durations still make me a bit nauseous, and could they please upgrade that cheesy conputer graphic of the company jet zooming along, such an abomination to TOS and Mac driving along solo in the Wrangler.

Nice that they only focused on one plot this time

Mac seems to like it when she calls him Blondie now. The way he kinda smiled when she said it love.jpg

Good entertainment despite the overarching downer storyline.

Again though, Bozer and Leanna as paramedics in Croatia would likely elicit some sort of reaction from the prison guards, would it not?

The drone did seem a bit size challenged to provide lift to 160lb+ man. That wasn't my concern though - it was who was controlling it! You just don't get the feeling that Bozer, from the past we know, is the candidate for such a precision job .... and then he kinda drops him for a bit of comedy schtick.

Overall I liked this episode.
1) one mission focus YAY I prefer this to split narratives.
2) great acting all around
3) Mac/ Mattie moments; good character development
4) opening Phoenix scene with Mac in his holiday best; love that jacket! biggrin.gif
5) family aspect
6) Jack entering a room first to protect his boy
7) emphasis on sacrifices of operatives
8) a rollercoaster ride of emotions


I still don't get Bozer as a field agent. I don't think I'd want to depend on him to save me
huh.gif

Still not a fan of Leanna. They try to make her a badass shooting, punching, flying helicopters but it doesn't work for me. Don't like her. As Bozer's girl fine, but not part of the team.

Ethan's daughter looked older than 2 (he said he went dark when she was born).

Preliminary Ratings: http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/the-...-12-7-2018.html

The reboot again won against LSM in audience numbers. If it doesn't loose to much for the final adjustment, this episode will be the one with the second highest audience number this season.

The demo seems to settle on 0.7.
