  Here's the blog post by Rhett Allain - Technical Consultant for the Reboot - about the "MacHacks" used in this episode: https://rhettallain.com/2018/12/29/macgyver...tes-can-opener/


He writes about following MacGyverisms:
> Ring of fire
> Fixing an inhaler
> Battery hydrogen bomb
> Morse code with the tail lights
> Final breakout part 1: making liquid nitrogen
> Final breakout part 2: breaking steel

He also posted some videos to go along with it.

  After the reboot of Countdown, they rebooted The Escape. Now, The Escape is one of my least favorite episodes of the first season and probably in my top ten of least favorites overall. This time around they managed to make it quite interesting. Only when watching, I was thinking they should've hired Danny Trejo to play El Noche. That would've been so cool. And there was a torture scene. Nothing new: Nightmares, Legend of the Holy Rose, The 'Hood. But I'm always in for torture scenes. A good simple episode.

For the record in the startpost it says 1-6 Can Opener instead of 1-7.

  Here's the final ratings after the adjustments (via Showbuzz). It lost a bit in audience numbers, but got to keep the rating and won the 8pm time slot.

Will be interesting to see the ratings now that "Last Man Standing" will again be paired against S3 of the Reboot.

  Paper, Salt, and a Battery...and water, but they had water. You should be able to finish watching if you have the CBS app or go to CBS' website.

  So, wait, how did they get out of prison? I had other stuff to do, and had to stop watching right as he went on laundry duty.

  I gave this 3 stars. A better one again however he cannot even go to prison without Jack following him there. Sheesh!

I just want a "Mac" episode. No team dammit!

Also, as Kiwi stated above, some of those MacGyverisms were a little far-fetched.

Just waiting for that one episode where i can finally give it my stamp of approval. Somehow i don't think it'll ever happen. dry.gif

  This episode placed first in it's time-slot and second place overall for Friday nights ratings. Beaten out by "big sister" show Hawaii Five-0.

  This one was good.
The only thing that was kinda dumb, was in the opening gambit when the bad guy was surrounded by that small ring of fire and he just stood there. He coulda easily ran throught that without getting harmed.

As for the nitrogen tank... that would happen if you were able to knock the valve off. But you would need a sledge hammer to do that. Not a downward blow from ones foot. And it would be unpredictable where the tank could go.
Coulda killed Mac instantly.

Otherwise, I was entertained again.

  I liked this episode. I still wish they'd vary the story formula at least a bit (not every episode needs to be "opening gambit -> Bozer/Rily scene -> Phoenix Foundation-> Mission", but even in spite of that, this was a fun episode.

That freezing the bars thing was complete rubbish. If the cold could transfer like that (which it can't) the broom handle would have frozen - along with MacGyver's hands.

I guess. But the MacGyver series has always taken some liberties with its science, so I just went along with it.

That thing at the end with the nitrogen tank was way too far fetched as well.

That actually made me laugh out loud. It was stupid, but in an intentional and fun way, so I didn't mind it.

These latest three episodes were, I think, a bit better than the first few episodes. And we get Murdoc next week, so that should be fun.
