Very good episode. Many MacGyverisms. I even think this is the only episode with the most isms over the entire series. What can I say? Typical 80's style episode. And one of the best endings too. Action till the last second. Driving a car out of plane at 20.000 feet!!!


QUOTE (MacGyver Gal Sep 20 2004 @ 05:27 AM )
The best part about this episode was Mac in a tuxedo. tongue.gif

I loved the part were he was standing in front of the mirror imagining himself as James Bond. And then struggling to keep his hair in place. Soooo cute. smile.gif

I was surprised to see him drink wine…very unMaclike (oh no...there’s that word again Hahaha)

I thought he could have poured it into the sink or something like that. But I guess in the interest of time, he drank it. ohmy.gif

One little nic pick about this episode occurs when Mac is shooting craps. Players never stand on that side of the table. Only the box person and croupier stand there.

Don’t ask how I know this. Hahaha laugh.gif


QUOTE (MacGyverGod Sep 20 2004 @ 06:04 AM )
That's not unMac like, this time it was for an ism. A very important ism.


QUOTE (MacGyver Sep 20 2004 @ 07:35 AM )
Hmm, MacGyver as James Bond!

Awesome episode! wink.gif

Yes, there was a ton of MacGyverisms in this episode and it was very action packed. I loved the ending where he drove the car out of the plane!

I thought he would have tipped it into one of the other glasses as he was on the last tone.

He did seem a little stressed out though, so maybe it was to calm his nerves.

I like the way he screwed dup his face after drinking it though. I can totally agree with him on that. Red wine is horrible.

Geez Rocky I was going to say that! Yes I agree that he should have put the wine in the glass that he was done with. I saw this episode the other day. I have it on tape.. This is a great episode! Did you notice when the lady ran to the car they had a commerical and then they showed her running to the car again? What the heck did they do redo it and then overlap? The show does this again in other episodes. I like the part where he says he is bond james bond rofl.

Oh and the part where he sees the lady holding up a sign that says MacGyver and he says oh is your name MacGyver too? ROFL. The end where the car flies out and has a parachutte awesome! Then that lady kisses him on the lips ARGH! These sluts really annoy me ROFL.. That one macgyverism that Mac did was put something on this lady's dress and it fell down ROFL ROFL. the look on Mac's face hahahhaa..


QUOTE (Rockatteer Sep 20 2004 @ 10:07 AM )
There’s one thing about that car floating down scene that bothers me.
When they first drive out of the plane, the car does a complete roll before the parachutes open.

Neither of them where wearing seatbelts, so why didn't they fall out?

One of my fav episodes. Very light harted, poking fun at the whole superspy ( ie. as in 007) scenario. ....and Mac was in a tux. What else do you need?


QUOTE (MacGirl Dec 5 2005 @ 02:45 PM )
I can't believe I missed commenting on this one! A great early ep. Definitely a sendup of 007!

Got a kick out of him using the wine glasses to open the safe, and using the bird for a distraction. And of course, the parachute and the car was great.

Loved him in a tux wub.gif and his Bond impersonation cracked me up! He really does that one well.


QUOTE (Lothil Dec 10 2005 @ 07:12 AM )
I loved this episode! Lawless and good hearted-- that's how I love my Mac! The tux and the wild hair, the 'Bond. James Bond' crack, a mynah bird for an accomplice, and, of course, the wild escape with the cargo parachute! A classic 'Oh, Please!' moment which I adore!

My favourite moment: Tossing the applecore into the trash can *victory pull!*

My favourite lines:

Chris Rhodes: "How can you sleep?"
Sleepy Mac: "Usually it's no problem!"

I've just got Season 1 on DVD so I'm going through it any chance I get. biggrin.gif
And I loved this episode!!!
Mac in the tuxedo wub.gif
It's just a really great episode.
I love the 'Bond. James Bond.' moment.
The scene when he's at the mirror & his hair is sticking up!
When he first meets her at the airport & she's holding the sign,
and he says 'Is your name MacGyver too?'
There are so many great scenes!
There's so much going on in this episode.
How he gets the diamonds out, and all the stuff going on in the casino.
I was thinking it would've made a great Season opening show,
they could've made it 2hrs!
I just loved it.

Excellent! I loved the adventurous feel to the whole thing, tho I did think the driving the car out of the plane was...probably unrealistic. The "Bond" moment was great because MacGyver definitely lacks that 007 sophistication! laugh.gif

I watched this episode again today..

I love the "morning after" scene. roller.gif and the "how can you sleep?" line is a classic.

Didn't they use the "Usually it's not a problem" line in another later episode?

Anyway, in spite of a few nitpicks this episode gets 5 out of 5. Everything you'd expect from a MacGyver episode.

"Your name MacGyver? That's amazing, so's mine."

I also love the James Bond moment (damn he looks good in a tux!)... and Mac's hair, which simply will not cooperate (it sticks straight up) - something we can look forward to in many future episodes. I like his natural dark auburn hair color before it got fooled around with, but maybe with the wisps of grey starting to show on the sides, they thought it might make him look too old(?) - so the blond frosting began not too many episodes later... The paperclip in the zipper of the lady's dress made for a really good diversion.

Really agree with this! biggrin.gif The out-of-control frosting of later shows is something I've just never been able to reconcile with the whole MacGyver mythology.

I just can't see the character of MacGyver sitting still in a salon chair with foil and chemicals all over his head. I keep trying to tell myself it's natural, and from the sun, but I just can't live in denial...they're obvious hardcore frost n' tip highlights.

If they would have been a more subtle "gently sun-kissed" type of highlight I could handle it. For anyone who may insist they're from the sun (in real life or the show), I'm not saying it's not possible, it's just not probable. laugh.gif

By about 3/4 of the way through, you completely dislike the casino owner (Been a while, so I can't remember his name), and then you get the scene in the plane:
"You still got the ring?"
"Yeah."
"Use it."
SLAP! laugh.gif kicking.gif

Catlin. Played by Vernon Wells. He shows up again in 'The Odd Triple' as the completely unlikeable Paul Donnay.

I like him... he is so eeeeEVIL! happy.gif

I can't place his (Vernon Wells) accent. It SOUNDS British, but I'm thinking South African or Australian?? Anyone know for sure???

Is this the only episode the "How can you sleep?" line was ever used?

I'm having vague memory flashbacks of hearing it in another episode?

Of course it could just be a sugar rush.

This episode significantly betters "The Gauntlet" in many ways: the script is excellent, the tension is high, the MacGyverisms are more interesting and entertaining (with one exception), and the pace is quicker despite having the potential to be slower. (Car chase versus roulette table. What's gonna win?)

The performances are about on par with the earlier episode, especially Vernon Wells as Catlin. He's nicely evil, with an aura of sophistication that makes him fun to watch. Doran Clark isn't always quite as good as Chris Rhodes, but she's enjoyable and good nonetheless. I quite enjoyed seeing Mac sneak around the upper halls and into Catlin's private suite. The script is decent, with solid writing and good character development. (Those of us who've had poor dealings with them before will be glad to see the accountant killed off early on.)

Sadly, there is one MacGyverism that nearly ruins the entire show, and is perhaps the least believable of the entire series (there's one about equal in "The Coltons"). I'm no physicist, but it seems to me that regardless of a parachute, a car driven out the back end of an airplane that's in the air at the time will say "Screw this air!" and hit the ground at the fastest rate of speed possible. I could be wrong here, but it seems unbelievable and strange (and I could have done without the obligatory kiss between Rhodes and Mac). Solid episode overall.

My rating: 7.5/10

And yet the military use that very method for air dropping supplies and equipment.

Well then I screwed up very much bad. Of course, I think the army probably carefully controls and orchestrates their drops, wherease Mac just drove the car out with about half a minute to think it up and actually do it.

If the parachute is large enough, it will slow the descent of large objects, however, attaching the parachute only to the back end of the car will result in the thing landing on its nose, thereby likely injuring the occupants.

If they haven't fallen out already when the car was head down. Nobody can tell me it is possible to hold that fast.

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.

Maybe he knew if she was in the seat she would freak out. She couldn't see much in the floorboard.

attaching the parachute only to the back end of the car will result in the thing landing on its nose, thereby likely injuring the occupants. 


If they haven't fallen out already when the car was head down. Nobody can tell me it is possible to hold that fast.


This whole scene reminded me some of the scene from "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" when Indy uses an inflatable raft as a makeshift parachute and to safely land him, Short Round and Willie Scott on the ground. That probably wasn't terribly believeable either- but come on! Who cares? It's great entertainment and that's why they do it. The point of it is not really if this would work in real life- but if anyone could do it- it would be Indiana Jones! Or, in our case, MacGyver! smile.gif word1.png
