  • MacGyver is shot down by the Soviets over Afghanistan, retrieving a data capsule, he is wounded and has nowhere to go. A boy finds him and takes him home where his mother is and looked after him. But, the Soviets are still after him and won't quit!

    Quite an enjoyable episode with a few good MacGyver creations.

    I particularly liked it when Mac created a hang glider out of duct tape, some plastic and material that came down from space... this is also after he had to diffuse a boobytrapped satelite with the data capsule inside.

    I felt sorry for Ahmed and his mother getting treated the way they did by the Afghanistan Rebel Leader, but was glad when he got killed by the quick witted MacGyver.

    I didn't know MacGyver was also a great shot when it came to rock slinging - superb shot.

    Overall the episode was a good one and I highly recommend it.
