MacGyver Season 2
SPOILERS TOTAL. You've been warned.
(First watched 2008-06-24) Decent setup, but it reminds me of the first episode of last season. That is, no real "bad guy", just Mac against a secure building gone wrong. In this case it's in the form of a security test which goes wrong, so things become really lethal. I enjoyed the defense robots which looked like short cheap plastic Daleks, though the closest they got to "EXTERMINATE!" was the computer using the word "eliminate".
Dana Elcar's first show as a regular cast member.
Trick of the show: Flaming magnets to set the heat-seeking defense robots against each other was nice, but I kinda like the simplicity of using plaster scrapings to trick the palm identification machine.
(First watched 2008-06-30) Naive MacGyver gets friendly with a tricky hitman while searching for a lawbreaker, then must help said lawbreaker avoid being killed, and then helps the hitman avoid being killed for not doing the killing.
Trick of the show: The improvised rocket/battering ram to knock down a door was pretty useful.
(First watched 2008-09-something) They try to con the con-man... but basically end up framing them for a different situation? Doesn't seem very legal.
Trick of the show: Getting a woman to open her shirt when she thinks he needs her buttons for a real trick?
