Knight Rider “Good Day at White Rock” (part 3 of 3)

“We don’t like to talk about it nowadays, but in the 1980s it was perfectly okay for young boys to go riding off with strange men. In fact, it was encouraged in certain circumstances. That’s how we culled the herd back then. Jimmy’s not doing so well in school? Spends all his time playing Berzerk on the Atari? Listens to Air Supply? Time for that last ride, Jimmy! Just hop in the car with that nice man, okay?”

MacGyver “Thief of Budapest” (part 3 of 3)

“There are two ways to include a stunt-filled car chase in a TV show. One way is to spend a lot of money hiring stunt drivers, getting cars, and renting appropriate locations, and then spend lots of time and effort shooting difficult and demanding scenes. The other way is to put your characters in three appropriately colored Minis and steal a lot of footage from The Italian Job.

Guys, I wish I was making this up.”

MacGyver “Pilot” (part 4 of 4)

“Yep, that’s pretty much all there is to it: every week, MacGyver finds himself in some kind of crisis situation and has to save himself (and generally a plucky kid or an attractive woman or a villageful of ethnic peasants) with nothing but his Swiss Army Knife and various convenient bits and bobs he finds along the way. I warn you now: the word ‘convenient’ will crop up a lot in these recaps.”
