    MacGyver lost me during last week’s episode, when they had him dumpster-diving for parts to rig up gas masks, putting fire extinguishers on a shopping cart, and administering an antidote, all with just 10 minutes to spare to do it. I can’t bring myself to suspend disbelief that much.

    Joel, yeah, there was just too much dumb stuff in the last episode. Like, there is no way that guy is up practically walking around on his own after that car surgery.
