Also, as a professional, he wouldn't taken his cap off to be recognized. But if (the writers) didn't do that, there wasn't any reason to TARGET MacGyver in the first place. Double Oy!

Maybe the costume designer should have given him a shirt with a target on it.

Or just a plain red shirt. laugh.gif

Yeah, but at least Mac will look good in it!

Red flannel, of course.

Just watched this one again recently. I think it's a really good episode, though I agree that the Axminster character was corny and not believable. It's a crucial episode for character development as we get to learn more about Mac's life. I also liked the idea of Mac and Harry having to outwit the heavily-armed bad guys using just stuff from the wilderness. I liked the way Harry's character was played--a crusty, grouchy, stubborn old guy. But we see him soften a bit over the course of the episode.

The thing that erks me (today) about him is that at the start of the episode we're told Axminster would blow up a whole city block to kill the person he was after. But what we get is a namby pamby "don't wanna get dirty or brake a nail" wiss.

yup. gotta agree on the comments about the bad guys in this ep. they're so dumb. and this axminster dude, at the beginning, they made him sound like such a bad ass. i was expecting something like murdoc. but instead, i got a robot who needs a dozen inept fools to help him do his job.

yep. He certainly does have his own SAK.

I love that scene. Without a word being spoken it tells us why Mac carries a SAK.

I wouldn't be surprised if is first ever SAK was given to him by Harry.

Why name a bad guy axminister? Sounds like he should be preaching from the pulpit with an ax in one hand and the bible in the other. I was thinking when the agent told Mac to get lost one of those scenes in this day and time would have been a big NO-NO. Just a thought. jeep.gif

'Axminster' is also a kind of carpet.

Maybe they're implying that, like a carpet, this guy is so good at what he does that he leaves nothing uncovered.

Not that he appeared to be that great of a hitman... seeing how Mac and Harry laid him out, even though our heroes were outnumbered!

Isn't it always that the good guys prevail and the bad guys fail. I was just wondering if he preached to those he was going to kill, then killed them and rolled them into a carpet named for him. Or was he named for the carpet? laugh.gif

Also, that beach house was awfully close to the, well... the beach. Nice visual, but not very practical for holding a (what I assume) valuable military general as a hostage. Not a few feet down was a crowded beach.  rolleyes.gif 

I don't understand with all of the people outside, how is no one noticed a Lady General being bound and gaged? hmm.bmp

I imagine the Bad Guys figured that it would be a case of 'hiding in plain sight'--who would think to look for them on a crowded beach?

I imagine they would have brought her in during the night, when the beaches are nearly deserted, and they have the advantage of the cover of darkness. However, oggling out the window at the nearly nekkid girls probably led to MacGyver learning where they were.

Their plan, as well as their brains, were obviously flawed wink.gif

I mean really... using binoculars to look at a woman less than 25-30 feet away? rolleyes.gif

How would they? She was inside a house, away from windows.

People generally don't go peeking through windows of someones house.

Also the people on the beach where doing their own thing.

There was only one guy at the window.

And is it so unusual to see someone standing at a window of a beach house watching whats going on outside?

And how does that tell anyone that there's a person tied up inside the house?

I think if anyone had noticed that guy there, they would have simply assumed he's some creepy old perv and moved to another section of the beach.

But weren't there several young ladies hanging out on the deck of the beach house? Wouldn't they've seen a creepy man with binocolurs looking at them. And why didn't the notify the beach patrol about this "creepy man".

You are right, they were playing near the house but not anywhere on the deck. I was just wondering why a creepy man with binoculars was watching young females. But I guess that was the way TV was back in those days. Everything was innocent.

the villains seemed to have escaped from a bad scooby-doo episode, or perhaps more accurately from a typical A-team episode.

Most have been covered about the writing, but I liked the macgyverisms and Mac was impossible to dislike even for a grumpy hermit like this grandpa. His grandpa is one of the most memorable characters of the entire show, in later episodes, in this one he seemed to be rushed a bit.

All in all this particular story seemed a bit disjointed and infantile, not one of mac's best.

I've just been looking at the pictures of Harry's cabin from this episode and I notice that the floors of Harry's cabin are concrete.

How many old wooden cabins do you know that have solid concrete floors in them?

How many old wooden cabins do you know, period? Hee! I don't think it would've been beyond Harry to haul some cement bags home and pour himself a new floor. Or maybe it was built after concrete became readily available? That stuff's been around along time and it's superior to a wood floor in every way but appearance. I know what you're saying though, it was probably just part of the set, or something they tossed together on a budget. Still wouldn't mind living there though, looks like nifty little rustic place.

I'd like to know where Harry kept the Chevy truck he gave to Mac. The one in this ep is a Dodge I think. It's also lowered, which I can't picture an older guy doing. tongue.gif Darn, I'm spoiling the episode! I'll stop thinking now.
