    Macgyver against the Machine

    By sh811a, Aug 24, 2006

    This episode is one of my favorates as well. The plot as usual is nothing really new, it's rather familar to other films about computers having a mind of their own like "The Forbin Project". But what makes this good is the ongoing action and suspense that doesn't stop for a minute, sort of like a video game. In fact the chanalge Macgyver has to overcome is set up like one, he has less than a certain amount of time to get to the master circuit to disable the computer before the computer disable him. But unfortunately getting from point A to point B is easier said than done because their are obsticles in his way that will constantly try to prevent him from reaching his goal. We see him at his best in this as he is forced to think up things fast. Like heat magnetic darts against the robots or even jeans to hang away from an acid pit. You go Mac.moreless

    MacGyvr is called in to test the security at STRADA (Strategic Research Development Administration) which is a top secret project. A state of the art computer system is used as security and suddenly malfunctions....can MacGyver escape in time?

    This was easily one of the best episodes so far in the series. STRADA (Strategic Research Development Administration) has a state of the art computer system that is way ahead of it's time. Jill created this system and makes it think like her, so MacGyver is sent to test the security system and break in single handed. If he passes it's back to the drawing board. If he didn't Woodward gave the Phoenix Foundation the seal of approval.

    All is going well and MacGyver uses some great tactics to enter the compound and break in. Jill is inside with Mac.. when.. suddenly Sandy (the computer system) malfunctions and does everything in her power to defend STRADA.

    Meanwhile Pete and Colonel Woodward are trying to desperately get them out and cut the power to the mainframe.

    A brilliant episode and recommend it to anyone, a full adventure and very intense in some situations. Sci-Fi to the max and a great start to Season 2!!
