Looking Back at Season 3 (IV) – The Official Stills (Part 4)

It’s promotion time for the Fall shows on CBS. Not for MacGyver, sadly. So let’s finish another blog post to help easing the pain of having to wait for Season 4, no?

As with Seasons 1 and 2, I’m looking back at the Official Stills for each episode of Season 3; picking my favorites and writing down some of my thoughts. (Because I just can’t keep quiet, as you all know.)

Episode 3×18: Murdoc + Helman + Hit (Official Still via SpoilerTV)

If you missed Part 1 (Episodes 3×01 to 3×05), you can read the post here. For Part 2 (Episodes 3×06 to 3×10), you can visit here. Part 3 (Episodes 3×11 to 3×15) is to be found here.

 

Episode 3×16: Lidar + Rogues + Duty (Still Photographer: Guy D’Alema)
For Episode 3×16, we got 9 Official Stills by Still Photographer Guy D’Alema. They all feature Riley, Bozer and/or Desi in the lab with Sparky. Later, CBS added 4 screenshots of Mac and Desi out on the main mission as additional Stills.

MY FAVORITE: It might be a rather blurry screenshot, but I still prefer Mac out in the wild over a lab photo. Sorry, Guy.

NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: Nothing downright disappointing. I still think it’s an interesting choice to get the Still Photographer to a certain location on the day the main character isn’t there. Especially since for this episode, not much happens in the lab. Maybe there had been a schedule change.

 

Episode 3×17: Seeds + Permafrost + Feather (Jace Downs)
For Episode 3×17, we got 13 Stills of the team either in the lab or on the main mission. Besides in one photo, there’s not much action going on.

MY FAVORITE: Pretty people standing around and looking dangerous.

NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: Not much to choose from besides pretty people standing around and looking pretty. I guess it could be worse.

 

Episode 3×18: Murdoc + Helman + HIT (Jace Downs)
Episode 3×18 delivered 19 Official Stills; 18 of them featuring one or more members of Team Phoenix staring down Murdoc.

MY FAVORITE: It’s Mac and MacDaddy confronting Murdoc. With James seemingly holding MacGyver back or trying to protect him, the Still allows speculations into different directions.

NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: 18 Stills of Team Phoenix staring down Murdoc. They could have at least provided one with Murdoc’s nemesis Helman. I mean, it’s Michael Des Barres, everyone. And with all the BtS photos and the trailer, it wasn’t a secret anymore that MDB would be guest-starring in this episode.

 

Episode 3×19: Friends + Enemies + Border (Jace Downs)
We got 8 Stills for this episode; all of them of Mac and/or Desi on the main mission.

MY FAVORITE: Mac and Desi in a tense conversation. This might get interesting.

NOW THAT’S DISAPPOINTING: I think the episode would have provided better opportunities at Stills. But the Still Photographer is scheduled for a specific timeslot and has to take photos of what he can. I felt some of the BtS photos were more interesting, though.

 

(More coming soon.)
