  • Not your normal MacGyver ep.

    "Trumbo's World," though it may sound like some bizarre nature show, but it is actually one of the more original episodes of MacGyver. Killer ants taking over an island is not your typical post-Berlin Wall communist villain. Mac's innovative hand made fixes to overcome the ants' advancement are simply ingenious, and the lush island jungle is neat to look at. The supporting actors are only okay, as usual, but, of course, RDA is charismatic enough to carry the show. The opening gambit is alright, but not enormously exciting. All, in all, this is an entertainingly original episode, executed well enough.
