Maria (MacGyver: The Wall (1990)) has been offered a position at the university and she's considering leaving the Phoenix Foundation. That way she could settle down with MacGyver. But commitment is "not an easy thing" for him to talk about. MacGyver takes Maria to his place, only to find Kate Murphy (MacGyver: Lesson in Evil (1990)) there. Then some young woman called Jenny bursts down from upstairs. Turns out she's with Kate. Over some Chinese, the women gang up against MacGyver and The Old West gets mentioned. MacGyver retreats upstairs and starts to watch a western on video, but once again falls asleep. Cue again a dream where MacGyver lives in the Old West town called Serenity (MacGyver: Serenity (1990)), among familiar faces like the Bozer brothers. Written by Toni Tapola, Finland

Interesting with back stories
25 May 2019 | by MiketheWhistleSee all my reviews

I typically don't like this time of story told via dreams, but this might be an exception. It's got some good laughs and reading the backstory of Traci Lords is somewhat interesting especially since this was one of her first jobs after porn. Even more funny considering she plays a mail order bride.
