I watched this episode when I was only 10 years old and to be honest, it was quite entertaining. However, now that I've watched it again after more than 20 years I still find hard to believe how Amir fell for the whole thing so easily. And how he didn't suspect anything when he was allowed to go inside the vault and see all the diamonds... anyway. Could've been the dazzling beauty of Nikki Carpenter or how greedy and ambitious he was.
The plot is fun and interesting and we get to meet Nikki Carpenter, who, in my opinion, was a great addition to the cast and a good sidekick for MacGyver. And as a little girl back in the 80's, someone I wanted to look like when I grew up.
I'm so happy I was able to get the DVD's and I'm having a blast watching the episodes again.
