MacGyver sniffs out a DXS mole with fellow agent Craig Bannister [SPECIAL GUEST: Michael Goodwin!]
MISSION: A DXS leak has resulted in the deaths of several agents. A Soviet informant is used to lure the mole into the open where MacGyver and Craig Bannister intend to catch the spy red-handed.
This week’s highlights include:
SPECIAL GUEST: MICHAEL GOODWIN!
This week, we chat with Michael Goodwin, who plays DXS agent Craig Bannister, the only person to serve as an agent of DXS AND the Phoenix Foundation besides Mac and Pete. We discuss MacGyver’s almost-hidden cast, how the brake-line/power-steering stunt came together, and a particularly silly MacGyverism that haunts Goodwin to this day. Also, keep an eye out for the release of a film he recently starred in opposite MacGyver’s own Cuba Gooding Jr. called Freedom.
A must-see for any fan of this episode, 1962’s Manchurian Candidate.
Adipic acid (Chemistry)
Adipic acid is the organic compound with the formula (CH2)4(COOH)2. From an industrial perspective, it is the most important dicarboxylic acid: About 2.5 billion kilograms of this white crystalline powder are produced annually, mainly as a precursor for the production of nylon. Adipic acid otherwise rarely occurs in nature.
