  • After Mac's professor is killed for information regarding a defective missile guidance system, he tries to protect a young computer genius that some terrorists are after as she holds important information. She despises her self image and Mac tries to giv

    This was a good episode, we see one of Mac's favourite professor's who plays a mean saxophone. The professor has a young female student which is a computer genius, she broke into the defence departments computer!

    The whole episode is about the army's Snake-Eye missile guidance system. Terrorists steal two missile's and are selling it on the black market. Throughout the episode, these terrorists want to kidnap Kate (the ugly duckling) so she can tell them information on the Snake-Eye system. Mac eventually gets to her and finds out how much hatred she has about her self confidence. Mac uses his charm and gives her some confidence.

    The two of them teaming up was good, it was like Mac's daughter - the young female version of Mac. Overall, a good episode to watch.
