In the opening gambit, the cooking oil changes color, from yellow to clear.

and When the bad guys stop at the bridge and see their partners laying in the stream, we hear one of them say they are still alive... but how do they know this without leaving the jeeps to check on them?

What about that that limb is supposed to be suspended in a tree and is jumping back and forth like it's a detached 3-4' round while hes whacking on it? laugh.gif

furthermore he is suddenly wearing a different shirt while sitting on the tree. and later in this episode he is also wearing different shoes.

Yeah, I noticed that too, yesterday. Even if you think he maybe might be kneeling on the other limb, no way he would be hidden till the waist behind it (at first I even thought he cut the limb he was sitting at, but apparently there was a smaller one right next to it, which we can't quite see).

I also wondered where he suddenly got the bag from when he collected the cones. I had not seen it on him previous to that, when they jumped out of the boat and swam and run. Did anybody? Or did he collect it from the bad guys?


And finally, that last scene, with the sawed pillar, also looks somehow odd. I would think it only suspended the wooden frame, so that should have crushed. But that half of the ceiling comes tumbling down and the frame is still intact, seems a bit of a made up.

When you look at the outside of Harry's cabin, the fireplace is at the right hand end of the building, but when we see inside the cabin, the fireplace has magically moved to the opposite and of the cabin.

See pictures of Harry's cabin


edit: Just noticed the link to the Other houses was wrong. Is fixed now.

Just noticed in the beginning, when MacGyver is blowing up that facility, you can see german wehrmacht signs on the trucks... didn't know he was on an assignment in the past

The voice over says it's a brand new middle-eastern nuclear refining plant and the sign in the plant is written in Arabic, so German writing would be a little out of place

Where can you see a truck?

so i guess they just took all the explosion footage from an old war movie (btw the bunkers are also in camouflage that seems to be german origin)

ohhh... good spotting in that case. wink.gif

It did seem to be a bit of a tradition for the earlier seasons to use footage from other shows and movies. So it is highly likely that that whole scene was from some war movie.

Actually now that I think about it, that didn't really look like a nuclear plant blowing up either did it?

MacGyver has an aversion to guns, but despite the fact they knock three of Axminster's armed mercenaries out, Harry never takes any of their guns. He's clearly comfortable using guns: there are several mounted on the walls when MacGyver first arrives at the cabin.

After his men are defeated, Axminister has a rifle but climbs up onto a porch and jumps on MacGyver. Then he knocks MacGyver down from surprise. Then he unslings the rifle from his back. Finally he prepares to shoot MacGyver. Fortunately for MacGyver, Axminister forgets that he can shoot from ambush.

Another episode early in the series where MacGyver's complete aversion to guns isn't established: in the opening gambit he casually threatens two enemy agents with their own gun

I am amazed that in every wiki and website is stated that RDA made most of the stunts in the series, and I have started watching again the dvds, and even in the most simple things they used a stuntman... In this episode I can count at least four times, and a pretty clear one when Mac tacles the wooden pilar at the end of the episode..

This is one of the best shots of the stuntman. It is easy to identify him in almost every single stunt, including easy kicks.. I assume that at least in the first season RDA didn't have much experience with martial arts, but I am only assuming because I haven't started to watch the later seasons again.

I'm not actually sure how much of the stunt work RDA did in the first season.

It's quite conceivable that he wasn't allowed to do any of it until at least the second season when the team all started to know each other.

Steve Blalock is the name of RDA stuntman. He also appeared as a character in at least one episode.

I was surprised in the very last scene when the bus is leaving, if you look closely you can see that the licence plate from the bus drops and floats to the ground blush.gif

Are you sure it's a license plate? They are made of metal and don't really "float to the ground" so much as drop.

I should've use quote marks so it would've been "float", sometimes when I put those marks I really don't mean it in correct way, but in little funny way, you know smile.gif But it was actually more like rolling on the ground, when it dropped in speed.

In this episode Mac says he hasn't seen Harry since he was ten. Though when he first meets Harry, he says he hasn't seen him in 16, 17, 18 years. If this is so that would mean Mac would be 26, 27 or 28 years old in this episode. Of course this is still early in the show but Mac would be several years off his own actual age. It was probably just an attempt to humor Harry. Maybe not exactly a nitpick but dang, that's quite a remark on Mac's behalf.
