A recap of the 1990 MacGyver episode "Passages," which aired as the fifth season finale.
In the first five seasons of MacGyver, the eponymous protagonist has managed to be injected with a hallucinogenic drug that caused his brain to become scrambled (and he managed to retrieve the antidote from a sewer within a minute of the poison being irreversible), fall out of a window into a harbor and suffer amnesia (the amnesia is broken when his boss/best friend Pete reminds Mac that he saved Mac‘s life once, causing Mac to turn the safety on the gun and hand it to Pete), get blown up (this happens once every five episodes), knocked unconscious (once again, it happens every five episodes) - you name it, it happened. And yet, he manages to survive. And why? Because it’s television, it’s the ‘80s…and he’s MacGyver, dammit. The man can do anything!
Not only can he save the day...he can sport a wicked mullet and have three names!
In the fifth season finale, something life-shattering transpires that no one could possibly have seen coming…MacGyver in a coma. Oh yes, it happened.
Passages aired as the fifth season finale of MacGyver, on April 30, 1990. It features our hero lapsing into a coma after a fall from the third story of a parking garage, and a visit to the afterlife reunites him with his long-deceased parents and recently deceased grandfather. However, a series of events happening back in The Real World have Mac trying to escape The Afterlife (and yes, this is how I will refer to both realms throughout this recap) with a newfound willingness to live and save the day. Can he do it?
In this recap, I’m going to take a look at the episode and reveal all of the steps it takes for our dashing hero to escape The Afterlife and walk once again among the living in The Real World.
Alright, fade in from the opening credits to the first scene, which starts off the way a typical MacGyver episode begins, with beautiful lush landscapes set among precipitation (it is always raining or snowing). In this case, it is raining.
The camera pans across a beautiful lake and trees set against a gloomy day in Vancouver (well, we know it’s not supposed to be Vancouver, but I’m not going to lie about it and say it’s…oh I don’t know…”Los Angeles”). The title card comes up… Passages. I’m relieved they stopped putting the titles in quotes after the early episodes. I’ve said it before, punctuation on a title never bodes well!
Hey, it’s Harry Jackson! And he’s sitting with a little boy on a dock, fishing. Who is this kid? I believed the writers were making use of the plot device better known as The Flashback to show a happy time of young Mac with his grandfather. But, it’s not twelve-year-old Mac…it’s just a young kid. Harry folds a gum wrapper to make a fishing lure (He calls it the “Harry Jackson Special”). The kid is impressed and asks him about it.
Harry asks the child if he likes fishing with his grandfather, and the boy says that he did “when he was a kid” (Harry looks amused by the statement - after all, the kid is about twelve years old). Then the boy laments that his grandfather moved to California and he doesn’t see him much. Judging by the Minnesota Twins hat the kid has on, Harry is obviously living in Minnesota again (I think this was mentioned in the second season). Harry then tells the kid that his grandson also lives in California (well, it’s not really “California,” but for all intents and purposes, it’s California). He then shows the boy a picture of his grandson.
You know what? I have the same picture in my wallet too! I take it out whenever anyone asks me about my “boyfriend.”
(Note: I’m single - it’s cracks like this one that keep me single)
Is anyone noticing a theme yet - it seems the boy is supposed to be like MacGyver at that age, and the fact that they each have a relative in California is symbolic of each person missing the distant relative.
The boy says to Harry, “Wow, that’s your grandson. He’s so old…I mean, you don’t look that old” (once again, Harry shows amusement). Harry says that he doesn’t feel old (irony ahead), then gives advice on how to catch fish by keeping his arm straight, then he grabs his chest as suspense music plays (you gotta love how they throw this music at you in the first two minutes). The kid is horrified that someone else’s grandfather is keeling over before his eyes. Harry tells the youngster to get help. Harry pulls out his picture of Mac, which lands on the dock as he collapses.
We then cut to a museum, and a female voiceover explaining that there aren’t any earlier flights to Minneapolis, and MacGyver lamenting that he really needs to get there, as his grandfather is in the hospital. So, he remains on a stand-by list. Pete Thornton is walking up to Mac at this moment.
Mac tells Pete that Harry’s worst fear is dying alone. Pete then tells Mac that they still have to turn over the Sunboat (explanation coming), and perhaps by then something would break with the airlines. And, if worst comes to worst, Pete could get Mac on a military flight. While this doesn’t prove any relief for our hero (partly due to Richard Dean Anderson’s intense facial expression), he goes about his business.
Hakim calls out to Pete - he is the man who will be acquiring the Sunboat artifact. Mac notices the necklace he is wearing. It will become important later in the episode, so take note. A slightly distracted Mac shakes the man’s hand.
In a parking garage, a Middle Eastern man gets out of a car and proceeds to load a gun and remove some weaponry from the trunk, and boards an elevator.
Back to the museum, Hakim explains how Egypt is looking to acquire back artifacts of their homeland. The Sunboat is revealed, and Mac, who is examining it, notices that one of the occupants on the boat is holding a staff that is the same symbol from the necklace (like I said, it becomes important later, and this is the first direct reference to the necklace). Hakim explains that it is “Ka,” and the purpose is to protect man’s spirit in this world, and the next. Figure out what “next” is, and you’re moving at an even pace with the episode. Moving on…
Hakim explains that Osiris (the Sunboat) takes the dearly departed to the next life to meet Anubis, a haunting figure who judges the recently departed. This seems to be a little more than MacGyver can take, and Pete asks him if he is ok, to which Mac excuses himself to check on his grandfather.
The man we saw in the parking garage is lurking in the stairwell door, and enters the museum’s hallway, strapping on a gas mask.
He then tosses a gas can into the room, and runs into the room to get the artifact. MacGyver, who was on the phone, hears the alarm and runs into the room. Pete tells him that someone took the Sunboat, and Mac springs into action, chasing the man up the stairs to the parking garage.
A fight ensues, with Mac managing to get out of the unnamed man’s grip, but when he is distracted, the man - and this is the first time I put my hands over my mouth - throws Mac over the railing and sends him crashing onto the roof of a parked car three stories down. Mac (well, Richard Dean Anderson’s stunt double, in the very least), crashes onto the car, hits his head…and is unconscious. Talk about your bad days - first Harry collapses on a dock…alone, and MacGyver is tossed out of a parking garage. Fade to black.
The next shot has MacGyver in an ambulance, and Pete talking to him. Mac is totally unresponsive, wearing a neck brace and bandages. I think this is the second time Pete has almost totally broken down emotionally for MacGyver’s sake. I could certainly see why - who isn’t scared to see him like this?
The unnamed man and Hakim are talking in a limo - the idea is that no one would get killed in the theft…er, I mean…acquisition of Osiris (the Sunboat). Hakim explains that once the artifact is in private ownership’s hands, it will never been seen again. The unnamed man explains that MacGyver saw his face and would surely point him out, and Hakim says they will have to make sure it doesn’t happen. And then they would have to get rid of Pete to ensure that.
At the hospital, a distraught Pete waits outside in the hallway. Hakim and his security aide arrive, and the doctor comes out of the room. He explains that MacGyver’s fall resulted in fluid buildup (which they drained), and possible damage to the brain stem. Due to this, he lapsed into a coma. Pete asks if he can go in. And what we see next probably left more than a few fans shocked.
MacGyver, bandage on his forehead and covered up to his neck in a sheet, looks like he is sleeping. Pete tries talking to him…no luck.
The doctor begins shining a light into MacGyver’s eyes, and we begin hearing a very faint voiceover, provided by Richard Dean Anderson (which is the last time we will ever hear narration on this show - it was always nice to know what he was thinking, but that was stopped after the fourth season). He is trying to get Pete’s attention and asking what is going on. When it is shone into the other eye, he “gazes” at Pete and scans over to the two men with him. He recognizes the one guy as the man who did this to him, and is insistent that Pete hear him. But, that is not to happen, because in Very Special Coma Episodes, no one can hear you in voiceover.
It’s at this point that Harry, in echoing voice, tells Mac not to waste his breath - no one can hear him. MacGyver’s eyes then snap open. He sees Harry and asks if it’s really him (to which he replies “last time I checked”). Harry tells him that he got himself into quite a mess, and begins to leave, to which MacGyver sits up. He rushes out of the hospital bed to chase him, and looks across the room and realizes something is ever so slightly wrong with the situation. He’s wearing the clothes he had on at the beginning of the episode, but he also sees himself lying in the bed, under the sheet (courtesy of first person point of view, performed by the camera). He looks shocked, and tries to get Pete to answer him. No use.
Harry goes to leave, and MacGyver decides to chase after him. And since no one is listening to him (especially Pete), this seems to be the only solution. So, he makes like Carol Anne and goes into the light. MacGyver is now standing on a dock in front of a ship called Osiris. It’s like a luxury liner, and people are dying to get on it (I know, that was tasteless, but it was ok that he said that when he broke out of Berlin in a coffin, wasn’t it? I know what you’re thinking, and you’re wrong. I’m not
MacGyver sees Harry boarding and is insistent that he board too. The chief purser comes up to him, and it’s Hakim - you know, the guy from the beginning. Mac realizes he has seen him before. The man tells him that he takes on many forms, and his purpose is to take the passengers to The Other Side. Mac asks what that is, and he is told The Afterlife. MacGyver asks if he’s dead, and we cut back to The Real World, where the still comatose Mac is resting comfortably. We’ll come back to The Real World during the course of this episode to check up on MacGyver and see how he is doing.
Hakim walks up to the security aide and hands him a syringe to put into the intravenous at first opportunity. Back in the room, a nurse is listening to his chest with a stethoscope.
Back in The Afterlife…
A man at a table is typing MacGyver’s last name into a computer (try his first name…oh wait, we don‘t know his first name!), and says that a James and Ellen MacGyver are onboard, to meet up with a Harry Jackson. Mac is insistent - that is his grandfather, and realizes his parents are onboard as well. He can’t get on, because his name is not on the manifest.
In The Real World…
No one is attending to MacGyver, and Pete gets off the phone with the police and says that the Sunboat has disappeared, and says that the police may have to search the Egyptian Consulate. The unnamed man is now entering the room, and finagles with the intravenous long enough to inject an unknown substance into it. Mac’s heartbeat gets all erratic, and he goes into Ventricular Fibrillation (his heart is erratically beating, and it is very hard to come back from it).
In The Afterlife…
His name has popped up on the computer, and MacGyver now realizes he really is…dead. And now he can board the ship. The first time I saw this episode, I was shaking at this point. Mac slowly makes his way up the ramp. And we fade to black.
Fade in from black…MacGyver is now on the ship, and runs to Harry, who is peeved that Mac is onboard the ship (after all, Harry doesn‘t feel like sharing his death with anyone - particularly his stubborn grandson. You‘d think Harry believes Mac‘s intruding!). Harry tells him to get off the ship in that very special way he has when he doesn’t have patience for his grandson. MacGyver is apologetic, and tells him that he tried to get to him as quickly as possible.
Harry tells him that he has seen some bone-headed moves in his time, and then MacGyver comes aboard (so that‘s the worst thing you‘ve seen?). Mac insists that he didn’t have a choice, and that he’s dead. Harry tells him it’s impossible, and that he can still fight. It’s all up to him. The horn sounds, and Harry informs MacGyver that after the third one, the ship casts off and MacGyver won’t be able to get back to The Real World. So, MacGyver literally holds his life in his hands - and his clever mind.
MacGyver wants to see his parents again - he is heartbroken at the idea that he never got to tell either one how much he loved them. For anyone not familiar with MacGyver’s backstory, his father died when Mac was ten years old (Phoenix Under Siege, Runners, and The Battle of Tommy Giordano all reference this), and his mother died when he was in his early twenties and on a mission in Afghanistan (this was directly referenced in the fifth season episode The Madonna, as well as the third season episode GX-1). She suffered a stroke and died the day after Christmas, and he never got home for the funeral. A man can only carry around so much guilt, and MacGyver is ready to explode. So much so, he is ready to hunt the ship for them. Harry tells him how stubborn he is, while the sounds of Ventricular Fibrillation (hey, the Electrocardiogram Technician Certificate I received is really paying off, because now I can use these cool cardiology terms I learned) play in the background.
Back in The Real World…
MacGyver’s heart rate is erratic - whatever was injected is affecting the electrical conductivity of the heart. Pete sees all the commotion and runs into the room, realizing something is very wrong.
In The Afterlife…
MacGyver sees his parents sitting on chairs, talking, and is almost overcome. Harry says he will go to talk to them first, but MacGyver can’t help but sneak down and stand away from them, taking it all in. Mama and Daddy MacGyver tell Harry that they are taking him home, and that Harry’s wife is making one of her big dinners. Of course, MacGyver, being the sentimentalist that he is, says “Sounds good. I‘m starving.” Mama and Daddy Mac turn around, and look to see who said that, and realize its their son.
Overcome with emotion at seeing their son (who is all grown up and sporting that classic mullet), Mama rushes to him to hug her son. MacGyver then hugs his father, and his father tells him that he is surprised to see him, but says he was always full of surprises. MacGyver tells him there was a last minute change of plans. His mother, obviously emotional, tells him that they are all together now, and that’s all that matters. Mac hugs his parents, crying at the idea of finally being with them. Once again, we hear the sounds of Ventricular Fibrillation, and we know where we’re going next…
Back in The Real World…
Pete is asking persistently what is happening to MacGyver, as the nurses and doctor try to revive him. Pete, now crying, believes he was stable. The doctor says MacGyver is dying, to which Pete realizes that Mac may meet his end. I swear, not until Pete goes blind in the sixth season, will you ever see him this emotional. The man had a gun to his stomach in an episode (courtesy of an amnesia-riddled MacGyver), and he didn’t get this emotional, though he was certainly frantic.
Back in The Afterlife…
Mama MacGyver (whose name is Ellen) is telling a story about young MacGyver, armed with a parachute made from her best linens, tried to ride off the roof of the barn on his bicycle. Daddy MacGyver (whose name is James) says that he “would never forget the look on her face, and said he didn’t know what she was more concerned about - her son or the linens.” Mac asks his dad how he knows this, since he died before it happened. His father tells him that just because you don’t live in the world, that doesn’t mean you don’t take interest in it.
Now, is it me, or do his parents look representative of what the ages they would be with their son being thirty-nine years old, even though they’ve been dead a long time? I guess it wouldn’t look right if James MacGyver was in his thirties and perhaps younger than his thirty-nine-year old son.
His mom boasts of how proud she is of him and what he’s done. But Mac reveals his flawed character trait - his guilt for not being there for his mother when she needed him the most. She tells him to let go, and that he earned his rest.
Harry, feeling the need to show his curmudgeon-esque ways, tells them it is all “hogwash,” and that there are a lot of people who need him. Mac says that they will get along without him (oh, so he’s content with dying?). Harry asks him if he would put money on it, and hands him a coin…with the picture from the necklace on it. See, I told you this would be important later!
Harry tells MacGyver to bring the coin over, so Mac does, and Harry puts it in one of those cruise ship telescopes. Mac looks into the eyepiece, and sees Pete standing at a table, admiring the Sunboat. Seems normal enough, right? Well, Hakim holding the gun to Pete’s head certainly isn’t. MacGyver asks Harry what is going on, and Harry tells him that this is the future. MacGyver gets some of his Inner Boy Scout back and says that he needs to stop Hakim from killing Pete, to which Harry asks him how that will happen, now that he is dead? It’s a good point, really - Harry tells Mac that he would have been the only person who could have stopped Hakim and saved Pete. We get one of those intense Richard Dean Anderson facial expressions again, and the scene fades to black.
Harry tells MacGyver that, in life, everything that he does has a ripple effect, and in death, none of what he can do will happen - the results being disastrous. MacGyver realizes that perhaps death isn’t everything that’s promised to him, and knows that he needs to get back among the land of the living. Harry tells him that he can try, but no promises.
Mac walks up to his parents, and they have that knowing look that it’s just not their son’s time yet - he has a lot more to do and two more seasons to do it, plus he has a haircut next week and he really needs a touchup on those highlights. Okay, so I made that part up, but I like embellishment. Anyway, they know he’s not ready to die yet, that’s certain.
MacGyver tells Mama and Daddy that he needs to come back to the living because his best friend is going to be killed. Mama pulls out the guilt card and tells him that they were finally going to be a family again. Daddy tells her that crying won’t make it any easier for his heroic son to go back, but he is resolved in the idea that his son has a lot more good (and like I said, two more seasons on the air) to accomplish. MacGyver tells them that he will miss them so much, and cries as he hugs his parents. I wonder if the tears came naturally for Richard Dean Anderson - it looked pretty authentic, unless he is just a really good actor. His father tells him this isn’t good-bye, and he hugs Mama and Daddy each separately. Of course, he also forgets to tell them that he loves them (why he has such a fear of saying this, I have no idea). He gives them one last longing look as the horn sounds. Harry informs him that if he’s going to go, he has to do it now. And off MacGyver goes, giving them a last look and one of those cute waves he does.
Meanwhile, back in The Real World…
All attempts to revive MacGyver so far have proven to be fruitless. The doctor gets a report that the reason MacGyver’s heart stopped was that his potassium (one of the major conductors of the heart) is too high, and to get insulin and glucose to counteract. And the efforts continue, as Hakim and his men come into the room.
Back in the Afterlife…
Harry tells the crew that his grandson needs to get off this “tub.” MacGyver explains that he is not dead, and the Chief Purser/Hakim says it is a classic case of “denial.” No, that’s a river in Egypt, but that‘s not the point. Purser/Hakim orders that Harry and Mac be put in the engine room until the ship pulls off from the dock. Mac insists that someone will be murdered if he doesn’t go back, and the men are locked in the engine room.
MacGyver begins casing the room, and Harry asks him why he came in the first place. MacGyver says it is because he wanted to say he was sorry…well, for everything. Harry tells them that though they rarely spent any time together after Mac moved to California, the things he has done make him appreciative, and that Mac shows that he cares because he lives up the example that was set for him. Mac thanks him, and the final horn sounds. Harry tells him that he’s sorry that Mac can’t leave, but MacGyver reminds him that they’ve been in tighter spots than this…you know, like in…
The Real World…
Still in Ventricular Fibrillation, efforts to shock Mac back to life are still not working.
In The Afterlife…
Mac realizes how to get out of a tight spot, referencing a fishing trip they took, when their truck got stuck in the mud, and how they got it loose. The scene, at this point, continually jumps between The Real World (Comatose Mac getting shocked) and The Afterlife (Limbo Mac devising a way to get off this cruise ship to The Afterlife). Mac wraps a fire hose around the engine and tying it to the wheel on the door (CLEAR!). Mac watches as the engine starts (CLEAR!), and we intercut with Mac watching the action happen with the action in the hospital room. Success! They escape from the engine room, and to Mac’s dismay, the ship has sailed off. But do you think that will stop him? No way!
MacGyver grabs hold of a rope and climbs onto the railing of the ship. He wants to take Harry with him, but Harry says no. Mac jumps down and insists that Harry goes with him, but Harry knows it is his time, and that MacGyver best go back on his own. He’s heartbroken. Mac says “Goodbye…Grandpa,” and gives him a hug. Harry tells him that he appreciates everything. Mac smiles and begins to make his way back to the living.
Harry lowers him on the rope…and all of a sudden, in The Real World, there is a rhythm. In The Afterlife, the crew attempt to stop MacGyver’s plans to escape, and he goes back into Ventricular Fibrillation. Every attempt Mac takes to swing away from the ship coincides with the shock from the paddles, until Mac finally swings away and winds up gripping the dock. He begins to slip, but Harry, who knows how this is going to turn out, says “That’s showing him, Bud.” Mac, still slipping, tries to keep his grip.
And, all of a sudden, when Mac’s hands have managed to nearly slip off the dock, something miraculous happens, and we’re sent back to The Real World, where the remainder of the episode takes place. Pete goes to put his hand down, and a hand grabs it…and doesn’t let go. For the love of God, the hand won’t let go. Pete, now sobbing at the idea of losing MacGyver forever, realizes that MacGyver has grabbed his hand, and will not let go. Pete is in shock at this - just when he believed his friend was in the grip of Death, he makes a comeback. MacGyver, the fighter that the doctor cannot believe he is, begins to come around. He slowly opens his eyes, as Pete begins crying tears of happiness. The men look on in horror - MacGyver was supposed to die on their watch! Talk about your epic fails.
He can’t speak, but he can move his eyes and blink. Pete is told that his functions need to come back, as he has been through a lot. Pete says that he wishes he knew who did this to him.
As if MacGyver is really going to take this lying down, he begins to move one of his fingers. Pete notices him trying to trace something, and believes he is trying to tell them something. So, he puts powder on a tray and Mac’s hand on top of it. Hakim believes it is his reflexes, but Pete knows better.
MacGyver, still blinking and otherwise non-responsive, traces the symbol from the necklace in the powder. I can’t emphasize enough how important it was to pay attention to that symbol. Pete, realizing what Mac is trying to say, asks him if Hakim’s people did this to him, and Mac shifts his eyes and gestures with his thumb toward the men. Pete, now in a rage, pulls a gun and tells them not to move. He tells the doctor to have someone call the cops to have the men arrested for theft and attempted murder. The doctor tells the nurse to go ahead, and she exits.
Now completely overcome with happiness that his friend managed to save the day (as usual), Pete quietly tells him, “welcome back, MacGyver.” We cut to a close-up of MacGyver’s bandaged face, and a single tear slips from his otherwise unmoving face. Fade to black.
Upon fade-in, we come into the final, post-climax scene, where the show is usually tied up nicely. It is a sunny day, and Pete is pushing MacGyver in a wheelchair, and telling him how the Sunboat was found in Hakim’s safe after a thorough investigation of the Egyptian consulate. He also tells him that Hakim and the men are going to be sent back to Egypt to face trial. Mac says he heard that Egyptian courts have a thing for artifact thieves. Pete sits down on a bench, and the same dramatic music that played during The Afterlife scenes swells up.
Pete apologizes to Mac for how he couldn’t get to Harry’s funeral, and then proceeds to tell him that he believed he would almost have to go to MacGyver’s funeral, and that is still scares him. MacGyver sits in the chair with a knowing look on his face, and thanks him, and informs him that death is not so scary - that it’s not the end of anything, just another step along the way. Pete says that what he said was beautiful. MacGyver, giving Pete that knowing smile (alluding to the secret only the audience and he share), explains that his grandfather told him that. Pete smiles, and we cut back to MacGyver, who despite being bandaged and sitting in a wheelchair, smiles. The scene freezes, and the Executive Producer credits come up on the screen. End of episode. End of season. Roll end credits!
And for those of you concerned with how everything turned out afterwards, MacGyver came back for a sixth season in September 1990, sporting less locks but it was as if nothing ever happened in the first place. Ah, the magic of television!
Wow, that was a gripping episode, don’t you think? While I already knew (and the audiences in 1990 probably believed) MacGyver was going to save the day in this episode (in more ways than one!), this episode is still heartbreaking to watch. My first exposure to Passages came during the sixth season finale/clip show Hind-Sight, when MacGyver tells a glaucoma-stricken Pete that when Mac needed him most, Pete was there. When Pete asks him how, Mac said that when he was in the coma, Pete helped him - and we all know how Pete helped him, after all, you just read this recap.
I knew after seeing the clips from the episode, that I would need to actually find the episode for myself. Thanks to You Tube (I was only on the third season boxed set at the time), I was able to see this episode. It immediately made my short list of favorite episodes. As a sort of reflex, if I’m watching something suspenseful, I tend to cover my mouth with my hands. During the first viewing of this episode, I kept covering my mouth the entire time - it was that gripping.
The fear of Mac’s demise obviously wasn’t on my mind watching this episode, but the fact that he came very close to it was enough to shake me. When he managed to save the day, and shed a tear for the loss of his parents and grandfather, I felt my eyes tear up as well. Plus, Pete’s constant crying didn’t exactly help - all I wanted to do was hug him!
The idea of Passages actually was executed well - the only way this episode could have been messed with was if the episode aired as a clip show, and was intercut between MacGyver in a coma and Pete by his side, thinking about all of the good things Mac has done up to that point. It’s hard to believe that such a good episode could have gone the route of “a bad way to end the season,” but a less creative writer could have made that possible. I’m all for clip shows ( The Golden Girls is one of my favorite shows, and they did a lot of clip shows - all of them good), but the plot of this episode was just so good and could never have been done away with in favor of a clip show.
This episode is proof that even when Mac is in a coma, he can still save the day. All in all, a great effort.
I’d like to thank you, once again, for visiting and reading my recap of this MacGyver episode. If you feel empowered enough to do so, please do watch the montage I made specifically for this episode (to the Billy Joel song I Go to Extremes - I was inspired, for one reason or another, to use this song, but if you think about it, Mac had to go to extremes to live and save the day, so I guess it kind of worked) by clicking on the embeddable player below.
One of the advantages of You Tube is that CBS has been nice enough to post full episodes of MacGyver (yes, ABC aired the show in its original run, but the show is owned by Paramount, which is now owned by CBS), and this episode is one of them (not all of the episodes are available). Feel free to click on the link below to watch the entire episode (if you have forty-eight minutes to spare, it’s a really good episode and well worth your time). Since it is not my video, I refuse to embed it (and they have made it so people like me cannot embed it!).
Also, please show some love for Mac (and me too!) - if you’re a registered You Tube member, please leave a comment on my video. I love to know how I’m doing (whether it’s feedback on my article or video). Also, comments are welcome on my Livejournal page.
Thank you, as always, for visiting (and reading)! J
