  • A great first episode, but just an average episode for MacGyver.

    What a great episode to start this series. You quickly learn what MacGyver is about in this episode. How he can use about any object he finds and turn it into something that will be able to help him. In the opening story he's rescuing a pilot who crashed in China. I never knew China looked so much like the Grand Canyon. ;) The main story, after the opening credits, is about MacGyver saving some scientists from an underground lab. (After a explosion) He also must stop a deadly chemical leak, that the explosion caused. Of course, he saves the scientists and then stops the acid leak with chocolate. A really great pilot episode for MacGyver. For a MacGyver episode I gave it an 8. (average)
