Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This unusual (and unusually well done) adventure series really hit its stride with the 22 episodes of the 1986-87 season. For one thing, the writers fleshed out the characterization of Phoenix organization operative MacGyver, giving the resourceful hero a bit of a back-story and sprinkling clues to his past in several episodes. Also, star Richard Dean Anderson got more extensive backup from supporting players: Dana Elcar was given more to do as field operations director Pete Thornton; Teri Hatcher made several more appearances as trouble-prone Penny Parker, and Bruce McGill joined the cast as MacGyver's old pal, a shady but likable pilot. As always, the show's writers and directors crafted situations designed to showcase MacGyver's ingenuity in using commonplace products and tools to fashion devices that extricated him from assorted problems. "Final Approach" is an uncommonly suspenseful episode that finds MacGyver stranded with four teenage gang members when their aircraft crashes in a remote wilderness. "Jack of Lies" introduces McGill as Jack Dalton, who needs his old friend's help after being sucked into a heroin-smuggling operation. Another intensely gripping show is "Phoenix Under Siege," in which MacGyver races against time to find and disarm a bomb planted somewhere in Phoenix headquarters. "Soft Touch" features Hatcher's second appearance as Penny; her chemistry with Anderson makes her an ideal foil for MacGyver, and she will be used sparingly but effectively in future episodes. Jack is back in "Dalton, Jack of Spies," during which he is forced to fake his own death. The season's high point may well be "D.O.A.: MacGyver," a spellbinder that has the hero being pursued by assassins while suffering from amnesia. It's one of those edge-of-the-seat hours that MacGyver presented with satisfying regularity.
