  • Michael was introduced in a prior episode, and I prefer that actor in the part

      MacGyver: Fraternity of Thieves touches close to home for Pete Thornton (Dana Elcar). The action begins when MacGyver tails an agent who has been living outside his means. When the agent is killed, things begin to explode, especially when Mac becomes suspicious of one of the Phoenix Foundation employees — Pete’s son, Michael.

      This episode has a very strong supporting cast,

      with Don Galloway as the Air Force Colonel in charge of a top secret DXS project and James Karen as Papillon, the ring leader of the group that wants to steal the satellite linkage project. Both of these two actors are very good in any role they take on, and they were excellent here as well.

      When Pete and Mac catch Michael ...

      • red-handed, Michael agrees to help them catch Papillon, though he has a hard time explaining why he did it. It’s a combination of greed and wanting to get back at Pete for not having been there as he grew up.

        Hank Stratton plays the younger Thornton, but I don’t much like his portrayal. Michael was introduced in a prior episode, and I

        prefer that actor in the part. Here, Stratton seems to overact a little. he’s a good looking guy, but I don’t see Dana Elcar in him like I did with the original performer.

        MacGyver: Fraternity of Thieves is entertaining enough and does have the added emotional drama because of Michael’s character. It allows Elcar to do something a bit different from normal.

    • Don't Be Nice. Be Helpful.
