The problem I found with this crossover, is that we weren't really introduced to MacGyver. Not having seen that series (or perhaps five minutes of it, I have vague recollection of a makeshift trough squirting a rampaging leopard in the face with water - maybe I stopped watching it after that) I was really at sea with all the MacGyver stuff. So I couldn't really get into the story. I'm normally quite game to read crossovers with shows I haven't seen (so long as I've seen one of the shows involved) because I figure I'll get the same introduction to the "other" characters as Our Heroes (whichever heroes they happen to be) will on meeting them for the first time, get to see what they make of the stranger(s). But I didn't feel that here, I don't really have a handle on Mac. MacGyver fans will probably get a lot more out of it.

Addendum: this series was winner of favourite series in the 2001 Cascade Times Awards.
