A reimagining of the classic series, is an action-adventure drama about 20-something Angus "Mac" MacGyver, who creates the Department of External Services (DXS), 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; Patricia Thornton, an ex-field agent turned director of operations; and Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer. 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. Written by CBS

Not great, but passable
5 February 2019 | by patrickwaters-04574See all my reviews

Macgyver is an 80s icon and this reboot is interesting, but 80s still wins. This Macgyver is basically like Hawaii Five O, just the stories are not as amazing. The cast all do a good job George Eads is an impressive choice for Jack Dalton as he was a quick witted hotshot, but the standout is definitely Lucas Till as the infamous scout/agent Angus Macgyver, he somehow captures Richard Dean Anderson's performance and mannerisms while at the same time making the part his own. Worth your time and while, just keep in mind that this isn't your childhood MacGyver series.
