Complete third season of the 1980s television series. MacGyver (Richard Dean Anderson), adventurer and science expert, works for the government as a secret agent. Refusing on principle to carry a gun, he uses his vast knowledge of practical science to complete his missions and to create ingenious traps for his enemies. Episodes comprise: 'Lost Love (Part 1)', 'Lost Love (Part 2)', 'Back from the Dead', 'Ghost Ship', 'Fire and Ice', 'GX-1', 'Jack in the Box', 'The Widowmaker', 'Hell Week', 'Blow Out', 'Kill Zone', 'Early Retirement', 'Thin Ice', 'The Odd Triple', 'The Negotiator', 'The Spoilers', 'Mask of the Wolf', 'Rock the Cradle', 'The Endangered' and 'Murderer's Sky'.
In "Ghost Ship," MacGyver's boss, Pete (Dana Elcar), is asked to define what makes Mac (Richard Dean Anderson) so special. He replies, "You know, I've known him for eight years now, and I've never quite been able to put my finger on it. He just always comes through, no matter what." And that he does. MacGyver's third season begins with a blast from the past when Mac runs into Lisa (Elyssa Davalos), a woman he thought he had killed (unintentionally, of course). Turns out Lisa's just fine, but she did do a little time in a Russian gulag, proceeding to marry the ex-KGB operative who set her free. The two-part season opener ("Lost Love") allows Mac to make it up to his former flame with a little help from pal Jack (Bruce "D-Day" McGill), AKA "The Great Sheldrake," whose latest career move is magician.
The producers must have felt that Anderson and Davalos had chemistry as she returns a few episodes later ("Fire and Ice")--sans Russian accent--as Nikki, a different, recurring character (oddly enough, Mac fails to note the resemblance). Like Teri Hatcher's Penny, who doesn't appear in the third season, Nikki isn't a love interest, but a friend (and Phoenix Foundation colleague). While Penny will return the following year, Nikki will not. Fortunately, Michael Des Barres' maniacal Murdoc does reappear ("The Widowmaker"), but only once before Mac neatly dispatches him yet again--or does he? Other guest stars include three Kung Fu vets: The Sopranos' Joe Santos ("Back From the Dead"), Blade Runner's James Hong ("Lost Love"), and Keye "Master Po" Luke ("Murderer's Sky," the season finale). The latter two appeared in previous years, but--like Davalos--as different characters (whereas Santos's Jimmy "The Eraser" Kendall was first introduced in the second season). --Kathleen C.
