    A Mission: Impossible like episode!

    By carnival19, Mar 25, 2008

    This show reminds me of the great Mission: Impossible TV show that aired from 66 to 73. Mac along with Pete and Jack are setting a trap to the bad guy and hope he confess the murder of their friend. Everything is used a la Mission: Impossible, 3 trustable individuals, advance computer technology (they're all exited to show the computer with the capabiliy of 1 go...but that was back in 1990!!), a great set up with a lot of people involved and of course the mask wore by MacGyver. The pace of this episode is great, it's really well written and acted. It was a different episode from the one we're used with Jack Dalton.moreless

    The best of the three "sting" episodes featured in this series, the role-playing of the main characters elevates "Jenny's Chance" above its peers.

    Jack Dalton's appearances started to become fewer and fewer in season five, but he continued to leave a mark on the show when he did show up, as was the case in this, the last of the three "sting" episodes featured on MacGyver...and the best of the three. The story was rich and complex, the role-playing of the major characters was both clever and humorous, and the twists and turns were nicely executed. The birth of MacGyver's nerdy alter ego Dexter Fillmore was a nice touch that added some amusing atmosphere to this episode and the two subsequent episodes featuring Dexter. As with all sting episodes, my major grievance was the fact that the bad guys always do the exact things that the sting planners expected them to do, however far-fetched the logic. What would have happened, for instance, if George Henderson hadn't told his associate to follow Harry Boyle to the Derby Grill and stumble right into the snare? The whole plan would have instantly fallen apart. That's what makes it even harder for me to suspend my disbelief on these sting episodes than it is when Murdoc comes back to life for the umptieth time. Minor grievances though, as this was a fun episode that audiences took a definite interest in, generating a season-high 14.7 rating and easily winning its timeslot.moreless

    Great episode...

    By green_arrow92, Nov 19, 2006

    MacGyver and jack help out this old friend after her father mysteriously dies in a horse pen. This guy that killed the girl's father was getting him to fix horse races with this device that made the horses go crazy, but they're horse couldn't hear it as it was deaf. This is suppost to be the best episode in season 5 a nd I agree. I really liked seeing Magyver dress up and play a nerd, and to see pete be a kind of rich guy that always got his way. In the end they got the man that killed the girl's father to confess he murdered him. Later...moreless
