Something that always bothered me as a former Jeep owner:

In the beginning of the episode he have Mac driving his Jeep with the top off and there is his voice over that talks about the countryside of Pennsylvania, I believe it was. Well, if MacGyver was suppossed to live in LA that means he was quite far from home.

With no top on the Jeep.

I have never seen (correct me if I'm wrong) any indication that MacGyver used a soft top that you can easily put up and down. It was always hard top or no top. I don't think you would drive to the other side of the country with no roof for your vehicle. jeep.gif

Aren't those "roofless" jeeps soft tops by default?

If it has a soft top you can clearly see it folded back. I never seen that in the show. If he had a soft top it would have been easier to just put it up and down than to take the hard top on and off, but we never see Mac sporting a soft top.

And if you want to switch out your hard top with a soft one it will take more than one person to take the hard top off and then you have to install a set of framework that the soft top uses which you would notice as well when the top was folded back.

I was going to suggest before that if that episode was in the summer time, a road trip with the top down mightn't be such a bad thing.

But then it occurred to me that such a long trip would still have a good chance of encountering rain at some point, not to mention hassles with being able to lock your vehicle if you stopped somewhere and other such things.

And if that episode wasn't summer time, then driving with no roof is just stupid. laugh.gif

How do you know he wasn't staying at a hotel or something and his roof was there. Mac is a smart guy!

It's possible. I've always wondered if he took the roof on and off. But Bubba said just before that it's not a one man job... but as you say Macs a smart guy. smile.gif

Did it turn into a hard top when he was fixing it in the barn?

I don't think so. And besides, as we all know that was a completely different jeep laugh.gif

The funny thing is that that jeep looked so far gone that it looked like it was totaled. And Mac didn't fix it, at least not on the show, which is how he was able to stay with the Amish long enough to save the little girl in the first place. (I'm sure he got it running later) wink.gif

How true! If MacGyver can build a hot air balloon out of old blankets and a wood stove then I think he can find a way to remove and store the top of his jeep by himself biggrin.gif

There is one scene where he's looking at fixing the jeep. So he was intending to fix it, just got side tracked I guess.

I think with Jeeps you can store the hard top, and take it off when you want to. (I think they are made of fiberglass). So he could have taken the top off the jeep and stored it somewhere in the back of the jeep. And no I don't know where. He was driving int the Pennslyvania country side, but do we know if he was going to California or coming from California. I remember him saying that he had been cooped up for two weeks doing some testing, and that it was nice to be outside in the fresh air.

ummm....

Fiberglass is solid. meaning it can't be folded and stored like a soft top.

I know that there is some type of Jeep hard/soft top that can be stored in the jeep. What they are made of I don't know. Rocky is right fiberglass can't be folded.

I live in pennsyvania in the country and I can tell you that they were pretty close to getting the scenery down. Very often I drive past amish people although they are rarly playing they are always working or taking their horse and buggy somewhere.

Yesterday I watched this episode again, after a long time. And this time it struck me that Mac's jump out of his jeep is not the same as in the intro. It made me wonder how many times the stuntman had to do it, before it was right. Well, at least they got to use two of his jumps. wink.gif

Hard to explain. The way the body is moving, the arms, legs. Maybe you can have a look yourself and then you'll see the difference. I hope.

Funny, huh? Now why they would use two jumps? Maybe after the episode was edited, they found they had a better one and used it in the intro?

And another thing: how many jeeps did they use?

Almost all episodes were edited and we still never really see the whole episode. There is a cut scene from Passages in Hindsight that was never shown in the episode. I don't think it is fair to us, we should be able to see the entire ep as it was filmed. unsure.gif

It happens to every program,film,documentary ever made.

They have to edit things down, not only to make it fit a required time slot, but also simply to keep the story-line flowing and stop double ups of scenes and information being told in the story or to stop a scene from dragging on and on, and putting everyone to sleep.

More than that: at least in the US, the number of minutes in every hour of programming that are given over to commercials has grown over the years. With broadcast re-runs, the episodes are trimmed down, farther and farther and farther . . .

The first show I ever went truly fannish over was the original airing of "Star Trek" -- over the years, I noticed remembered lines disappearing from re-runs of episodes, and gnashed my teeth. It wasn't until the 90's that I finally saw, in a special "Fans' Choice" marathon, the full-length versions of episodes as I had remembered them from thirty years before.

Thank heavens for DVDs.

I couldn't agree more.

I'd still like to know more about that cut scene, though.
Could it be I have a different set of DVD's? Because on mine there are no missing scenes as far as I know.

In Hindsight we see Pete's reaction to the first time they shock MacGyver. I thought it was a very touching scene and should have been left in the episode. unsure.gif
