    A first rate storyline but third rate acting.

    While not an entirely original concept, a whodunnit mystery does make for a nice change of pace for a Macgyver episode. Right off the bat we see the murder take place and the episode gets your attention. We see only the lower half of the convict, and after he picks up the "stress relief" pamphlet from the Phoenix employee's car, we get a bad feeling of what he is about to do. The whole "stress relief" prgoram needed to be more flushed out I thought. What exactly were they going to do besides hiking? As the Phoenix employees meet up, the story takes off, with subtle hints toward each that they may be the killer. Just when you think your sure its one, another will do something that makes him look guilty. Eventually we learn why :) But I could not ignore the bad acting of all the guest stars. They had extremely generic personalities and backgrounds. As another said, the female ranger was sort of unnecessay, fans of Airwolf will appreciate her though. Good episode, but overrated.moreless

    good episode...

    I love the story of this episode. MacGyver is taking a group of strangers on a outdoor adventure and two of them happen to be escape convicts posing...creepy. I loved the twist that there were two convicts instead of one, which everyone assumed. I thought the whole thing between MacGyver and the female ranger was pointless. MacGyver could have done it alone; why does there always have to be a lady? Anyways, I loved the characters and how they were developed. Pete didn't have much air time, thank goodness, because this is the type of episode where he could get really annoying. Overall, great story and great guest characters. Classic who-done-it.moreless

    Who is it?..

    i think this was a very good episode of Magyver and one of the best in season 4. i could'nt believe how much i liked this episode, i don't know why i like it but i just did. i guess is was the drama of how someone with MacGyver was a convict and it was hard to tell until the very end. the person that we expected it to be sudennly got killed and it turns out that the one we least expect it to be was the convict, in fact to of them were convicts. i think that this episode is very well written and portrayed.later.moreless
