The old odd couple
11 April 2017 | by tenshi_ippikiookamiSee all my reviews

The beginning of this episode is the best so far in this young TV series. It is full of humor, funny moments, and MacGyver and Jack's exchanges with their older, Russian, Cold War versions is full also of tongue-in-cheek moments. It has great rhythm and non-stop plot developments.

However, the second part, after the introduction of this episode's characters, falls again into the bang bang bang, make things explode, kill the rent-a-episode extras and wait for the next episode to repeat everything again. It is a pity, because the start is the perfect example of what this show can offer: humor, silly invents by MacGyver and fresh, non-stop pace.
