‘MacGyver’ Episode Guide (Nov. 17): The Team Tries to Expose an Infamous Stolen Art Dealer

“Packing Peanuts + Fire” (11/17/17) – When MacGyver and Jack “steal” a priceless painting, using a table cloth and a shoe lace, in order to draw an infamous stolen art dealer out of hiding, they wind up getting conned out of the painting by the dealer’s team.

Also, Riley’s estranged father, Elwood (Billy Baldwin), asks to be part of her life, and Matty sends Bozer to a spy training camp, on “MacGyver,” Friday, Nov. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Guest starring in “Packing Peanuts + Fire” are Billy Baldwin (Elwood), Reign Edwards (Leanna Martin), Luna Velez (Cassandra Glover), Joseph Meissner (Wiessler), Curtis Armstrong (Pawn), Roger Floyd (Enzo Lemaire), and Amanda Lavassani (Michelle Baker).

“Packing Peanuts + Fire” was written by Lindsey Allen and directed by Stacey Black.

“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.
