      MacGyver: Blow Out has some really nice segments and some which bore me, too. The opening is great. MacGyver is fighting a cold so he makes a run to the grocery store and promptly encounters a robbery. This segment is great with him, along with a little old lady, foiling the robbery attempt with style. It’s a lot of fun to watch.

      Then Mac goes to Pete’s office and there we learn that Nikki Carpenter (Elyssa Davalos) is now officially an employee of


      the Phoenix Foundation. Bad move on the parts of the producers. The banter here is just fine, but then we get way too many scenes of just Nikki herself, and frankly, I was bored. I just don’t care about her enough to want to watch her story play out. Regardless, we sit through her being mugged, followed by two scenes where someone tries to kill her. Frankly, I don’t care about her; I cared about the dog she was babysitting.

      We do ...


      • learn more Nikki and why she is how she is, but it’s not anything that really means anything unless you care about the character. Nikki might have worked as a once or twice a season foil for Mac when she might show up somewhere, but she doesn’t work in the way she was ultimately used.

        A fun part of MacGyver: Blow Out is when Mac is trying to dispose of a bomb in a truck and can’t get to the pier. He ends up recruiting

        some help, in the form of Don S. Davis. Davis would play Richard Dean Anderson’s commanding officer in Stargate SG-1 several years after this episode aired. Davis, however, worked regularly on MacGyver as he was the stunt double for Dana Elcar. Here, though, he had a speaking part, and it’s a hoot to watch.

        Lots of action in MacGyver: Blow Out, but it’s just an okay show for me. The rating, though, comes from the opening segment and the Don S. Davis scenes.
