    MacGyver stops at a diner to get directions for a location called Sparrow Lake but gets more than he bargained over when a couple of armed thieves take over the place.

    Fun MacGyver episode. He seems to willingfully step into trouble which is part of the appeal of the show.



    He knows he's lost and goes into an area with a couple of shady characters. Mac deals with a couple of thieves looking to steal money of an armored car then hijack a plane for escape.



    Here the Mac gadgets consists of a homemade blowtorch made from bicycle parts and iron parts. He makes using fertilizer a couple of small bombs. The highlight of the episode was Mac jumping on top fo the plane to stop the bad guys from getting away. Typically he prides himself on not using violence but this MacGyver showed that he was willing to go there to save lives.



    I liked it since it gives us more action. The acting is decent all the way around. It's worth a look.moreless

    The first mediocre MacGyver episode.

    By mark_28, Mar 09, 2011

    After a rollicking start, MacGyver was overdue for an average episode and "Last Stand" definitely fit the bill. Unfortunately, this was the highest-rated MacGyver episode yet (15.8 rating) and the mediocrity of the episode following the memorable "Trumbo's World" kind of killed the series surging momentum for a few weeks. There were some bright spots though. Kay Lenz played her role well, and the fertilizer bombs and freezer escape bits were nicely played. The villains, however, were too cartoonish, which was abundantly clear in the dreary climax scene where the numbskull hijackers randomly wandered the airport by themselves (calling out MacGyver's name no less) allowing him to snuff them out one by one. It was an entertaining hour like most MacGyver episodes, but nonetheless stands out as the weakest link of the first half of the first season.moreless
