      The Thin Ice episode of MacGyver was more fun for hockey-loving Richard Dean Anderson whose MacGyver character returns home to Minnesota to help his old coach. The coach has been laid up and needs Mac to coach the team through the playoffs. Mac doesn’t hesitate to go.

      Now the casting in season three of MacGyver gets a little interesting on two different levels. After filming its first two


      seasons in Los Angeles, MacGyver was one of the first shows to regularly shoot in Vancouver, Canada. This meant that a lot of Canadian actors began to be more visible. Many of these actors would later work with Anderson in his Stargate SG-1 science fiction series. Earlier in the third season, we had appearances by Robin Mosseley and Bill Dow, both of whom were on SG-1.

      • In this particular episode, it’s Garry Chalk who shares that connection.

        On another level, Martin Milner guest stars as Turk Donner, Mac’s old coach who is in the hospital. The reason this stands out is because in an upcoming season, he also plays Mac’s father.

        MacGyver: Thin Ice is all hockey and the love of hockey. Personally, I think it’s a way-too-violent sport, but I sure love how MacGyver loves

        it. I appreciate the passion and the fun of the scenes when Anderson gets to show off his skills on the ice.

        We also get a brief insight into Mac’s past and that love of hockey. This comes out in his scenes with the team’s troubled star, who is struggling between the violence of the sport and the sportsmanship of playing. It’s an intriguing debate that makes for some nice moments.
