Goofs

Upon revealing Amy Acker as the spy in question, they show her stats sheet that states she's 5 years younger, 2 inches shorter, and 30 pounds heavier the actress really is. The weight is a big stretch, the other two are at least believable. See more »

The invents, OK, the story...
28 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

The second episode of the XXI century MacGyver covers the MacGyver's creativity part (I am not going to get into details about the accuracy of those things, because I would never watch anything). The episode did a good job in helping me suspend my disbelief and enjoy the silly invents of MacGyver (with the old-style voice-over, but still with the annoying words to tell us what he is using). However, the story is unoriginal and lame (on top of the silly and unnecessary men as saviors again, and the uber-patriotic tinge).

MacGyver and etc. have to help a spy, Sarah, who was a former partner/friend of Jack. Cue the team going to Latin America and making things blow up.

The story is silly, but that could be acceptable if the action/pace/direction were great. But there is little of anything. The pace is not high, quite slow for an action show, and it resorts too much in the action scenes into the bang, bang, bang - zero accuracy failure. Having MacGyver, there should be less shooting and more silly invents. The acting is better than in the first episode, but nothing that will make you go outside and crack fireworks. And having Sarah could give the chance of a woman joining the team as an action heroine, but she still has to be protected by Jack, which is... uh?

Still on shaky ground, but fun enough for an hour in front of the screen while folding socks.
