      Season four of MacGyver has turned out to be the season without the Phoenix Foundation, or so it seems. The first three thus far have had Mac on the road, but at least they aren’t do dead animal stories. Actually, this episode, which is called The Outsiders, is one of my favorites. I love watching this one. It’s such a

      simple people message — tolerance.

      MacGyver is in need of air, so he hits the open road and is traveling through Pennsylvania when his tire blows out. He’s injured and tended to by the Amish, who are embroiled in a battle with a construction crew. Basically, via eminent domain, this group of Amish have lost their land, but they refuse to leave.


      • Members of the crew, especially the foreman named Stevens, are angry and on the verge of violence when Mac finds out what is happening. Also complicating things is the secret friendship of the daughter of the construction owner and one of the Amish children. The girl and boy are great friends.

        It’s really the relationship of these two kids, Christy and Jacob, that

        makes this episode so very wonderful. They are what friends should be, and each takes a turn at being the hero and protecting/standing up for the other. It’s beautiful to watch.

        The angst part of the show comes when Stevens crosses the line, setting into motion a tragic accident that threatens Christy’s life. It’s superb drama which is very well played out.
