‘MacGyver’ Episode Guide (Oct. 20): MacGyver is Kidnapped

“X-Ray + Penny” (10/20/17) – When Murdoc drugs and kidnaps MacGyver, Mac uses a needle and his teeth to escape and join the team to save Murdoc’s next victim, on “MacGyver,” Friday, Oct. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. David Dastmalchian returns as Murdoc.

Guest starring in “X-Ray + Penny” are David Dastmalchian (Murdoc), Michael O’Keefe (Harry McGyver), Grant Springate (Little Mac), Anthony Starke (Henry), and Carl Kennedy (Tall Phoenix Tech).

“X-Ray + Penny” was written by Executive Producers Craig O’Neill and David Slack. It was directed by Bethany Rooney.

“MacGyver,” a reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus “Mac” MacGyver, who creates a clandestine organization within the U.S. government where he uses his extraordinary talent for unconventional problem solving and vast scientific knowledge to save lives.

Joining his team on high-risk missions around the globe is maverick former CIA agent Jack Dalton; Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder; Wilt Bozer, Mac’s roommate and the newest agent on the team; and Matty Weber, a legend in Covert Ops, and the new Director of Operations at the Phoenix Foundation. Under the aegis of the Department of External Services, MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip.

“MacGyver” stars Lucas Till (Angus “Mac” MacGyver), George Eads (Jack Dalton), Justin Hires (Wilt Bozer), Tristin Mays (Riley Davis), and Meredith Eaton (Matty Webber).

“MacGyver” is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Lionsgate. It is executive produced by Peter Lenkov, Craig O’Neill, James Wan, Henry Winkler, Lee Zlotoff, David Slack, and Michael Clear.
