Hi All!
Been awhile since I've posted anything here. Just thought I would pop in and ad my 50 cents to this episode. LOL I voted Good! I really thought this was a good episode. I agree about them going out the back of that airplane in the car with the parachute. Even though it may be unrealistic, it was still a Great stunt! Can you imagine how thrilling that would be parachuting out of an airplane in a car?? AWESOME! That rates better than any roller coster ride! LOL As for his other MacGyverisms in this episode those were cool too. Especially where he opened the doors to that vault with those wine glasses filled with wine. That was pretty creative! And I had no problem with him drinking that wine to change the pitch of the sound. It wasn't like he was going to get drunk on just one sip of wine! I probably would have done the same thing. Plus, he had all the other glasses set with the right pitch, and he didn't want to mess them up, so that's why he took a drink of that glass. That's just my thoughts on that. I thought that was pretty funny when he unzipped that woman's dress with that paper clip and string as a distraction. LOL laugh.gif That cracked me up! I have to say, she probably deserved it. She was pretty mean to that waitress, so Mac picked her for the distraction. ;-)
And I too thought that was really cute when he was standing in front of the mirror trying to flatten his cowlick. That was funny too! And him saying "Bond, James Bond!" Cute! Even though Mac lacked the suave sophistication of the real James Bond, I thought he played the part really well! And I agree, he did look really Great in a tuxedo. He wore another tuxedo in that episode, "The Enemy Within" where this man's wife had brainwashed him into killing that Russian woman. He had to wear a tuxedo when he attended this symposium and the Russian woman was the guest of honor. He looked great in that too even though he didn't want to wear it. LOL Of course I'm a sucker for guys in tuxedos or uniforms for that matter! LOL

All in all I really liked this episode too. I agree, there were a lot of "MacGyverisms" in this episode. Him "fixing" those dice with that powder and shoe shiner, using those tubes to bypass that light beam to get into Caitlin's room, etc. They really outdid themselves in this episode! COOL!

Anyway, just thought I would pop in and post some comments on this episode. Thanks Rocky for keeping us posted on these episode discussions. These are great!

Take Care,
Nancy

This was one of my favorite episodes of the first season! I really like the actor who plays the main villian. The MacGyerisms were pretty good here and the whole James Bond thing was really funny. I also thought the part where Mac is looking in the mirror and trys to flatten his hair was great! Overall this episode was great with the execpion of a really cheesy ending! LOL clapping.gif

This episode was awesome! I really liked the villian, his accent makes him sound cool. The Part where Mac Has the mirrior reflectinog the camera back to itself was awesome. It kept me on the edge of my seat when the guard came down to check it out and Mac got inside JUST in time! Great episode!

Yea ive always liked Macs hairstyle. Season 7's is my favorite! And a sculpture would be really cool! That'd be funny if they made a Chia pet of MacGyver!

A prime example of the great early episodes. The plot was unique, the MacGyverisms were packed in and great ones period, some excellent quotes. One of my favorite episodes. The tuxedo part is hilarious to see Mac in. My hair sticks up the same way.

Love this one! Classic.

Of course, I love them all.

As far as RDA's hair, I like all the styles, including SG-1 gray days. He looks so young in this 1st season!

This is one of my all time favourites.
Mac in a tux.
The whole episode is great from start to finish.
I've always thought that it would've been a great movie or two part episode,
it just always felt to me it could've gone on a bit longer.

One of the best I think!! happy_dance.gif

Wow... I just realized that I've had the DVD set of season 1 for several years now, and I STILL never watched this episode! I'll have to try to remember to watch it one of these days. The last time I saw it was probably in the 80s.

Well everyone seems to love this episode (including me I might add).

Which leads me to the question: Why is the direction credited to "Alan Smithee"? Alan Smithee is a made-up name that is used in place of the real director's name when they don't want to be credited with the direction.

I wonder what happened here.

I like the part where MacGver just got off the plane and this woman is standing there with a Sign that says "MacGyver." he walks over to her takeing off his sunglasses and says"Your name MacGyver? That's amazing, so's mine is too."
she just stands there for a few mintutes before lowering the sign and looking at MacGyver.

I remember that scene! Mac has a great sense of humor, I like how they inject a little of that into a lot of episodes.

One of my favorite episodes. smile.gif He did a MacGyverism I'll never forget: brushing the dice in order to get 7 every time he throws them. Wondering in which take did he throw 3 and 4 so they could use that shot for an episode. smile.gif

I liked James Bond reference. And Mac in tuxedo looks really hot. wub.gif
And that ''Your name MacGyver? So is mine!'' is just hilarious. roller.gif

The ending parachute-car scene seemed too cheesy even for me and I'm female. Haha, I'm probably just jealous. blush.gif

Most of the things I noticed/liked/disliked about this episode have already been discussed here, so I don't have too much to say, really.

I think it was a very humorous "homage" to James Bond--and I, too, love the part where Mac's trying to flatten his hair. It would have been even funnier if he'd already had the mullet... wonder what he'd do with that one? laugh.gif

Lots of funny lines in this one too. The "Usually, it's not a problem" and "Your name is MacGyver too?" are two of my absolute favorites.

"Chris" was a pretty independent girl, but I think her acting was a little bit over the top at times. Not a female character I would remember for long. The last scene was more than a little cheesy--but then again, what would a James Bond inspired episode be without a little kissing? tongue.gif

A "Good" rating from me.

I liked this episode, but my favorite part was when MacGyver met Chris at the airport. Loved that line!! I am actually a bit jealous of you all. The TV versions that I am watching cut the part with MacGyver trying to get his hair to cooperate. It went straight to him in the Tux in the casino. I am so going to have to get my own DVD set!!!! I liked the "Bond, James Bond" line too.

One of my favorite episodes of season one. I liked the James Bond reference. The dice MacGyverism is very cool. The car parachuting out airplane MacGyverism is somewhat unrealistic, but a cool stunt. Very entertaining episode. Always one of my favorites.

There are 2 episodes that I absolutely love from first season, Nightmares and The Heist. This episode is full of funny stuff and lots of MacGyverism. It cracks me up every time to hear Mac say the James Bond line or things like, Chris: How can you sleep? MacGyver: Usually, it's no problem or the Sign lady. It's just hilarious. To me this episode has pretty much everything you could hope for. While RDA being great, Australian Vernon Wells is also great add to the cast. I remember him from Mad Max 2, Innerspace, Commando no name a few.



Harry Jackson: There was a time when I could run all day without breaking a sweat. I tell ya: it's hell getting old.
MacGyver: Age is only in the mind, Harry.
Harry Jackson: Well, my mind tells me I'm gettin' old.

I love this episode. A simple and straightforward concept: rip back off, what's already been ripped off!

A small moment I liked in this episode: the scene at the beginning where Catlin wipes the floor with two sparring buddies in quarterstaff combat while Mac casually watches from the audience. In a Bond movie, it’s the sort of scene that screams Bond will have to fight him with that same weapon later in the movie. Here, it’s a red herring – the staffs never reappear.

It means MacGyver lives in the same world as James Bond, but he doesn’t play by its rules – his skillset is completely different, therefore his approach to the villains is too, and that’s why so many of them end up blindsided. Catlin is a guy who expects to have to face the James Bonds and Rambos and John Matrixes of the world and keeps himself trained accordingly, but ultimately they’re not what he should be worried about.

yeah it looked like the car Mac was in nearly tipped upside down.

I never understood why he told the women to get down on the floor. sitting on the seat with a seatbelt on seems far more practical to me.

I really like this episode but that ending drives me nuts - of course he would normally have told her to strap in and not take the helmet for himself - but I have a feeling the stock footage they used of the car parachute had one person in the car wearing a helmet, so that's why he tells her to hide and puts the helmet on himself... hmm.bmp Also they go from the tropics to parachuting over the desert lol. Definitely felt not quite resolved at the end. Also during the riot what made the bad guy all of a sudden suspect her enough to run out after the brunette?

I love the exchange when she wakes him up - adrenaline and attraction makes sense, lol - she puts her hand on his, gets embarrassed and then takes his coffee to get him more when he hasn't even sipped it yet laugh.gif



"I'm not perfect.... yet."

"Are you crazy?" "It's been rumored..."
