I mainly watch to see how MacGyver can come up with clever jerry-rigged improvisations. There was only one in this episode and it was uninspired and contrived. Using jumper cables to electrify a puddle of anti-freeze with a 12 volt battery? Moreover, it knocks out the villain who steps in it while wearing rubber soled shoes. Really?
The female villain was truly evil, though. It was funny how when she played the girlfriend scenes her hair was down and she wore little make-up. But in the villainous scenes she always had her hair up, lots of make-up and wore a Cruella de Vil-ish coat. This flip-flop in appearance occurred throughout the entire episode (which played out over several weeks).
