  • MacGyvr is called in to test the security at STRADA (Strategic Research Development Administration) which is a top secret project. A state of the art computer system is used as security and suddenly malfunctions....can MacGyver escape in time?

    This was easily one of the best episodes so far in the series. STRADA (Strategic Research Development Administration) has a state of the art computer system that is way ahead of it's time. Jill created this system and makes it think like her, so MacGyver is sent to test the security system and break in single handed. If he passes it's back to the drawing board. If he didn't Woodward gave the Phoenix Foundation the seal of approval.

    All is going well and MacGyver uses some great tactics to enter the compound and break in. Jill is inside with Mac.. when.. suddenly Sandy (the computer system) malfunctions and does everything in her power to defend STRADA.

    Meanwhile Pete and Colonel Woodward are trying to desperately get them out and cut the power to the mainframe.

    A brilliant episode and recommend it to anyone, a full adventure and very intense in some situations. Sci-Fi to the max and a great start to Season 2!!
