Penny scores the lead in a musical; someone wants her to break a leg
MISSION: MacGyver shows up to cheer on Penny in her musical debut, but when a string of accidents befall the cast, the hunt begins for the mastermind behind the scenes.
This week’s highlights include:
Here’s that Joan of Ark short film (The Truth Wears Sideburns) from Clone High which we quoted liberally.
An acrostic is a poem (or other form of writing) in which the first letter (or syllable, or word) of each line (or paragraph, or other recurring feature in the text) spells out a word or a message. The word comes from the French acrostiche from post-classical Latin acrostichis, from Koine Greek ἀκροστιχίς, from Ancient Greek ἄκρος “highest, topmost” and στίχος “verse”). As a form of constrained writing, an acrostic can be used as a mnemonic device to aid memory retrieval.

Wow… you guys really really really really did not like this one…
I admit it is not as strong as some of the other Murdoc episodes but if you really want to apply logic and plausibility then most of MacGyver’s tricks and escapes are going to be in trouble.
It’s a fun episode… sit back and relax
