Discuss MacGyver

2 points about the season finale. Riley's fight scene, surprisingly, was the best fight scene of the season. It was well choreographed but gritty and realistic too.

Murdoch's escape used a pet peeve of mine. It seems that in every show and movie people use that ridiculous front choke hold (either 2 handed or 1 handed) to great affect. Often it seems that even great fighters that are the stars of the show are helpless when the bad guy wraps his fingers around their throat. In reality that is the easiest hold in the world to get out of. Breaking that hold is always one of the first things taught in any basic self defense class. The lazy use of it in tv and movies just bothers me sometimes.

Episode 5 was the most unbelievable fight scene in the history of TV. A little Ninja girl beat up an entire CIA spec ops team, it was incredibly stupid.

I agree about that front choke thing. Even a tiny, weak person can get out of that.
