309. Hell Week Is there a more perfect title than “Hell Week” for this episode? We start with 10 sparkling minutes of discussion about Annie’s personal “Hell Week” (hint: it involves a recent rodent problem and you may want to skip to 11:00 if you’re sensitive). Then we move on to talk about MacGyver’s “Hell Week” (which is really more of a “Hell Week” for a bunch of genius college students than it is for MacGyver himself). We’ll just say this: if you thought an episode about an overbearing father and a physics whiz wouldn’t end with an accidental nuclear threat that only MacGyver can disarm, you don’t know this show. We hope your week has been just heavenly! Click below to listen to Season 3, episode 9 of MacGyver: Hell Week! Duct Tape & Paperclips is the weekly podcast where we watch every episode of the original MacGyver (1985-1992) for the first time since our childhoods to see if it still holds up. New episodes every Monday, wherever you get podcasts!

308. The Widowmaker Good news! MacGyver’s BEST FRIEND (if you don’t count Jack Dalton and at least 10 other people he has called his “best friend” in this show so far), is BACK! Bad news! She’s played by a completely different actor AND she dies in the first 5 minutes! (Wah, wah.) This week, Annie and Nathan talk about the return of Murdoch, which brings with it: Freddy Krueger vibes, switchblades, flamethrowers, land mines, outdoor survival skills, home invasion, landlines, answering machines and Polaroids. Not to mention a kindly old man who owns a general store, ayut! It’s Season 3, episode 8 of MacGyver: The Widowmaker! Check it out below!

307. Jack in the Box (LIVE!) Quick Q: if you had intel on the whereabouts of the secret fortune of D.B. Cooper — err, “B.B. Bartel,” how would you go about getting your hands on it? Would you, say, arrest a bunch of innocent people on trumped-up charges and force them to dig for the treasure under penalty of death? Damn straight you would. This week, Nathan and Annie are LIVE in the same room, talking about Pete saying smart things (!), Mac’s codependency issues, and Jack getting beaten within an inch of his life. It’s Season 3, episode 7 of MacGyver: Jack in the Box! Check it out!

306. GX-1 Well, that didn’t take long. One minute you’re a competent female spy who can go toe-to-toe with MacGyver, and by the next episode you’re a wet blanket for him to yell at. This week, Nathan and Annie talk about the dumbing down of Nikki, as well as what it takes to build a hot air balloon from scratch, 80s depictions of psychics, and repurposing B-roll from the highest-grossing movie of the previous year. It’s Season 3, episode 6 of MacGyver: GX-1! Check it out below!

305. Fire & Ice Remember that Russian lady who jumped into a helicopter and got shot in the back like 3 episodes ago? No you don’t. Because the actress that portrays her is back, in an entirely new (and very American) role. So the producers would appreciate it if you’d like, forget all about MacGyver’s Russian ex-fiancee from like 3 weeks ago. This week, Nathan and Annie tackle that little continuity issue and much more, including a guy who gets hit by a truck despite having plenty of time to get out of the road, how to asphyxiate someone when there’s a giant hole in the wall, and MacGyver playing an undercover asshole. It’s Season 3, episode 5 of MacGyver: Fire & Ice! Check it out!

304. Ghost Ship Six years before The X-Files put “monsters in the Pacific Northwest” on the television map, our old pal MacGyver was chasing mystical beasts in Vancouver with a Russian runaway (Rushaway?). This week, Nathan and Annie break down the whole bonkers episode, discussing vaguely British villains, how to yell at an empty ship, and the narrative mechanics of a dramatic mask reveal. It’s Season 3, episode 4 of MacGyver: Ghost Ship! Check it out!

303. Back From the Dead w/Shane Torres Our pal, comedian SHANE TORRES (Comedy Central, Conan) is back to break down another episode of MacGyver centered around the least believable hitman that has ever existed. Shane bestows upon Pete a new and disparaging nickname, refuses to accept $2 from Nathan, and hips us to where we can see Nick Offerman’s penis. It’s Season 3, episode 3 of MacGyver: Back From the Dead! Check it out!

302. Lost Love (Part 2) Will MacGyver steal the jade dragon in time to rescue his ex-fiancee from Soviet thugs before her head explodes like a cantaloupe? How many famous golfers' birthdays do you know by heart? Does ANYONE in this episode even care that (*spoiler*) dies at the end? Find out what we thought of the thrilling conclusion of LOVE LOST on this week's episode of DT&P!

301. Lost Love (Part 1) Did we say we were “taking a short break?” Okay, we meant we were taking a very LONG break. But we’re BACK, baby! We absolutely couldn’t stay away. Not when Richard Dean Anderson and crew were uprooting their entire show and moving it to Vancouver, CA. Not when the frosted mullet was finally hitting its prime. Not when our legions (read: several) of fans were clambering (read: politely inquiring) for a third season of DT&P! The format is changing a bit — episodes will be shorter and mostly just feature the dynamic duo of Nathan & Annie. Special guests will pop up from time to time, just to keep things interesting and fun. The complex scoring system has been winnowed down to a 30 second segment. MacGyver’s got no fat on him in Season 3, so WHY SHOULD WE?
