I wonder if the Murdoc episode for next week will get pushed up a week as well? I'm really looking forward to that one.

yes, it's been pushed to April 5 because of March Madness.

The schedule at the moment looks like this:

3x17 March 15
3x18 April 5
3x19 April 12
3x20 April 26
3x21 May 3
3x22 May 10

Someone tweeted that their channel airs it after 11pm, so it might air but in a different timeslot.

Hmm, I am slightly warming up to Desi. A very little.

Plot twist: Sparky is the mole

I feel like Mac and Desi could talk to Murdoc and Amber and be like, "Yeah, our first date was beating the crap out of each other too." laugh.gif (no, I don't ship Desi/Mac)

Even Matty looked a little freaked at Desi's violence laugh.gif

Bozer is a horrible liar dry.gif

I know this has been brought up at least a dozen times, but I'm going to say it anyway: I really have a hard time understanding how Bozer could go through SPY SCHOOL and still make all those AMATURE mistakes blowup.gif Leanna's much better at utilizing those skills, but she never said anything about Bozer's mistakes, so she's just as bad in this situation dry.gif (Bozer used his own car?!)

I knew Oversight knew they were there, so I wasn't the least bit surprised when he came up to the window wink.gif

I feel like one of the dead bad guys they found was the boss from the Wilderness Survival episode laugh.gif

Caner? I guess that's one way to potentially kill off Mac's dad...

The whole bozer character is horrible and a waste of screen time.

Why Justin has stuck with it for so long is beyond me.

On the other hand if he leaves we would lose 90% of all our BtS information as he's often the only one that posts regularly with updates from set.. so.... yeah.... laugh.gif

I liked the episode a lot. The opening was great. Nothing wrong with a little beef cake biggrin.gif

I was never a big Bozer fan but he does provide some comic relief. and Mac needs a best friend. Tho I agree he's not the best at the spy game laugh.gif

The reenactment of the fight was entertaining. Loved Mac's facial expressions as he and Desi went at it. boxing.gif

Not a lot of Mac hacks tho the bucket satellite dish was cool.

Poor Mac. He finally is reestablishing a relationship with his dad and now the man has cancer. A touching last scene in the episode.

Justin appears to like the role, so I don't blame him for sticking around.

But I feel his comedic talents are better utilized BtS than on the show. I actually find him funny IRL.

Also, if I make my own satellite dish, can I avoid paying for internet? Asking for scientific purposes...

There might be bigger adjustements than usual because they pre-empted the episode in some regions due to sports. Audience numbers could be better, but the first two episodes of S3 had been lower so it's not a new low so far.

Another strong episode I still feel desie while I suppose is needed based on how they set up the show is still just dead weight but she wasnít too bad, is it weird that I didnít mind the prove it to me natural f marry but definitely was annoyed when Desie does it...

I suppose in theory if they gave Riley the training she could be both protection and tech support in theory but over all I dunno...

This season is stronger then season 2 so I am happy

I don't think the fight was necessary? They probably would have been faster if they just followed the phone's movements backwards and then maybe went trough the movements step-by-step in the end to save time on finding the box.


Anyway - I felt like this was the longest foreplay I've ever seen on a TV episode tongue.gif

Which is kinda funny, because I think that scene would have worked very will with Lucas and George as well. I think that would be such a Mac/Jack thing; them pretending to re-enact the fight while trying to "win" over the other just for fun. I think Jack would be pretty competitive; even if it's just a re-enactement.

Considering how CBS sabotages this show the numbers aren't bad. CBS also does no promo for the show. It's a miracle fans found it. btw anyone else HATE those banners advertising other shows? 1/3 of my screen is gone and if Matty is in the scene she's practically hidden. Awful.

I hate when they show them in a situation but don't show how they got out of it, like they did in the open this week.

Fun, with a cool setting (pun intended...although -10 Celsius in there and not the slightest sign of breath?).

Found the fight reenactment a little hokey, but the comedy aspect of it was done better than Bozer with Oversight.

Sure glad they brought in Reign Edwards for 45 seconds of screen time...kinda hoping her character is the mole.

Loved the very original MacGyver-esque ending to the mission with MacGyver appealing to someone to save human life...even if the life being spared was that of a crime boss. It's a nice tonal shift from something MacGyver Online mentioned back in the Catacombe thread about the previous week's episode in Ghana.

Perhaps that's why I like the Desi character a lot more than I thought I would...and am starting to realize the bromance may have been much more of a hindrance to Till's MacGyver's character development. I'm not really missing Jack all that much.

Even as a basketball fan, I kinda can't wait for post-March Madness because the next episode intrigues the heck out of me. biggrin.gif

Also, any 90s kids out there get the same "who is that" feeling with Nils Madsen, the seed vault guard? That's right, he was Wolf 'The Dentist' Stansson, the evil Icelandic hockey coach from The Mighty Ducks 2. hockey2.gif

Really? Cool! smile.gif

Been along time since I've seen those movies... they are awesome movies though.

Overall this was a pretty good episode. Only thing which really bugged me was the completely pointless opening gambit. It's pretty obvious the only reason for it was topless Mac and sexual tension or something between the two leads.
Can't help wondering if they're getting us ready for a romance.

Final ratings not good... lost viewers and down to .6
Even Blue Bloods down to .6
I know that MacGyver was regionally pre-empted for stupid basketball and aired like 2 a.m. CBS doesn't help with no promotion. I'm worried about a renewal.

Despite the low rating, the fact hasn't changed that CBS only needs one more season for syndication.

I think it will get another season along with the other Friday shows, but after that, it's probably done.
