It was an honest mistake.
I thought CBS’s new MacGyver series was going to be a continuation of the 80s original, as in the new MacGyver would be the old MacGyver’s son/nephew/other relation. But then I saw that dreaded word: reboot.
A reboot means the original deserves a reexamination, so I watched the 1985 pilot (series available on Netflix) to see how much things have changed in MacGvyer-land in 31 years.
In the MacGyver Season 1 Episode 1 reboot, a much-younger MacGyver (Lucas Till) is in a tux in Lake Como, using his voice-over to describe sex with his girlfriend, who also happens to be the “analyst” in his ear on his latest mission.

MacGyver is back, still packing his trusty Swiss Army knife and so many paper clips. Will the CBS reboot be able to hack it in 2016?
The freshman drama makes clear quite early on that Lucas Till’s Angus “Mac” MacGyver, as an operative for the Division of External Services, is a bit more physical than Richard Dean Anderson’s original mulleted problem-solver, able to handle himself decently in close0quarters combat, nor thinking twice before holding into an airborne jet’s landing gear for dear life.

Season 8 of The Vampire Diaries will be the show's last, and speculation about what awaits TV's sexiest supernaturals as they prepare to walk off into an infinite sunset promises to reach fever pitch by the time the series returns for its 16-episode run in October. Executive Producer Julie Plec dropped some hints during San Diego Comic-Con about what fans can expect, and according to the Ep, the series will be returning to some aspects of its season 1 roots.
A whole lot of good and bad guys have come and gone (and come and gone again), so the big question is, who do we hope to see return to Mystic Falls during season 8? Michael Trevino will reprise his role as werewolf Tyler Lockwood, and Tristin Mays, who played Stefan and Damon's great-niece Sarah Salvatore, is scheduled to appear as well.

Guys, don’t worry: As these exclusive promos prove, MacGyver has totally got this.
Even if “this” is a soon-to-fray rope that’s the only thing keeping a rickety chair from plummeting off a skyscraper. Or a seemingly inescapable scene that would make even Harry Houdini sit back and say, “Nah, I’m good.”
The videos at the top and bottom of this post find the CBS reboot’s star, Lucas Till, grinning and winking his way through two very stressful situations. In each, viewers are assured, he’s in total control — despite appearances. »
