As with Season 1, I’m looking back at the Official Stills for each Episode of Season 2; picking my favorites and writing down some of my thoughts. (Because I just can’t keep quiet, as you all know by now.)
If you missed Part 1 (Episodes 2×01 to 2×05), you can find the post here.
Episode 2×06: Jet Engine + Pickup Truck (no Still Photographer listed)
For this episode, there was only a single Official Still on the Press Release. That’s not how successful promo works?
MY FAVORITE: Well. Not much to choose from, huh?
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: Well. Don’t need to say much here. At least they chose one of the main mission with all the field agents present.
Episode 2xo7: Duct Tape + Jack (Still Photographer: Jace Downs)
For the seventh episode of Season 2, we got 7 Stills via SpoilerTV. One of them features the main mission while all the others feature the same scene inside Jack’s appartment.
MY FAVORITE: MacGyver consoling Jack after he realizes something with a lot of emotional value got robbed.
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: Nothing to be disappointed about.
NOW THAT’S FUNNY: In one of the Stills, you can see Cornell Willis (Second Second Assistant Director) giving directions. Looks like someone should have used his photoshopping skills before releasing that photo. If you haven’t seen the episode, you have to assume there’s a bad guy hiding…
Episode 2xo8: Packing Peanuts + Fire (no Still Photographer listed yet)
For Episode 2×08, SpoilerTV delivered 5 Official Stills. Two feature the same scene with Jack and the bad guy. One features Leanna, one Bozer and Leanna and another one Riley and Elwood.
MY FAVORITE: Elwood and Riley sitting at the table. Riley looks tense and uncomfortable and you can only guess how the first get-together with her father after years of not seeing him will turn out.
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: I think it’s always weird when the character that lends the show its title isn’t to be seen in any of the Official Stills.
Episode 2xo9: CD-Rom + Hoagie Foil (no Still Photographer needed)
The only Episode of Season 2 that provided not a single Still. What a shame.
MY FAVORITE: Harhar. Very funny. Guess I’ll provide one of my favorite BtS pictures instead. So here’s George Eads and Lucas Till with Director Bobby Roth.
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: I’m pretty sure providing some Official Stills after editing is finished is not that much work. At least not as much as putting together a preview or Sneak Peeks. But what do I know, I’m not in the TV business, after all.
Episode 2×10: War Room + Ship (Still Photographer: Kim Simms)
Episode 2×10 brought 8 Official Stills via SpoilerTV. And after realizing they had no Stills at all, they brought in a new Still Photographer.
MY FAVORITE: Mac and Jack talking outside of Jack’s quarters.
NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: The episode has a more unique storyline than others, so it would have been nice to see a Still about the main storyline with Mac and Zoe and not Stills about the book-endings of the Episode.
(More coming soon.)
