  • Not an episode of MacGyver, though he makes a cameo in it.

    This is absolutely, hands down, the worst episode of MacGyver. And the reason is simple: It's not an episode of MacGyver. It's a pilot episode for a spin off show about a family of bounty hunters. That idea on it's own isn't necessarily bad and if I were here reviewing an episode of that show I'd probably have nicer things to say about it. However, putting the MacGyver name on it means it's part of the series. And that's why it's terrible.

    MacGyver appears at the beginning of the episode in a short scene where he and one of the Colton brothers escape with the help of Frog, the Colton's dog. The building explodes and MacGyver leaves. The episode proceeds. Then about 20 seconds before the credits start, MacGyver drives up and they all have a laugh about something. Terrible.

    Why was this aired as a MacGyver episode?
