MacGyver

Eagles - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When the Golden Eagle is shot with the crossbow by the man, It goes through it's wing. Later when MacGyver comes to try and take it out, it is in a different position on the bird. It is not through the wing anymore. (00:07:25 - 00:09:15)

Jack of Lies - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When MacGyver et al. spot the car they will use to escape, the headlights are clean and white. After the commercial break, they are much dirtier and the dirt is only on certain precise spots on the headlights. (00:33:15 - 00:35:25)

The Outsiders - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Here as in every episode where MacGyver's Jeep appears, it's the '80s model with the square headlights. When we see him fixing the Jeep after the wreck, the headlights (or at least the holes left by them) are the older round ones.

For Love or Money - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When Mac and the ambulance are running through the checkpoint at the hospital exit, when you first see the shot the stop bar is already broken off on his side of the road, in the next shot they are driving through the bar breaking it off.

Final Approach - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Tommy is escaping into the mountains to try and help, a small bit of his jacket tears off onto a tree branch. MacGyver later sees it, but the branch that the torn piece is on looks entirely different. (00:21:10 - 00:22:10)

Blood Brothers - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the gang are chasing after the two kids, it is raining and the street is wet. They stop chasing and turn around when they see a police car go by. In the first shot of the police car, the street is completely dry. (00:05:45)

MacGyver: Look, if this works, it'll keep us from gettin' caught. If it doesn't, it'll keep us from gettin' old.

Show generally

Question: I never saw the whole episode but a young girl tells MacGyver that she walked into a garage and witnessed two men torturing another man strapped in a chair by making him listen to a high pitched sound that ended up killing him. Later, when she goes back to the house, the garage is empty and two old people living there say that they were the only ones there and that the girl must be mistaken and in the wrong house. What is the name of this episode and what really happened?

Answer: Perhaps s02e13, "Soft Touch." Penny Parker (player by Teri Hatcher, who would have been 22 at the time) crashes at Mac's place. She performs singing telegrams and takes Mac's Jeep to her next job, but goes to the wrong house and sees 3 men torturing someone. She drives away and the men chase her, noting the license plate of the Jeep. Penny convinces Mac to help, but she's unable to remember which house it is. Later, the men find out where Mac lives and kidnap Penny and a Serbian (a guy from the beginning of the episode), Mac follows and he reveals the bad guys' plot to kill someone at city hall involved in a drug case. The three rush over to city hall and prevent a bomb from going off and the bad guys are captured.
