    This is one of the best darn episode that helped put the show Macgyver on the map. I'll admit the plot in this episode seems strangely similar to some of the plot from that horrible film Speed 2 Cruse Control. The only difference is this show's take on the bomb plot is actually good and done right, defently blows that film away (plus the creators of that film might have ripped this episode off).

    What makes this episode good is the sense of nerve racking intensity. I was litterally on the edge of my seat watching this episode. It never lets up it constantly builds up giving you a real sense of dread. From the bomb kit tools getting lost making things a little harder for Mac and his partner Charlie, discovering that there is not one but three bombs to disarm rasing the stakes, clock continually ticking and Macgyver as usual using the most ordinary items just to do the job. And just when you think it's over it's not. Real intense.
