Storyline

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

Trivia

On the original MacGyver (1985), Nikki Carpenter was introduced as a potential love interest for Mac, though she never really turned into one. She appeared in a few episodes as a recurring agent and his polar opposite, equally capable of getting the job done, while totally infuriating Mac. The character became his good friend and co-worker.

Nope, it ain't all that bad.
12 February 2017 | by xlarsSee all my reviews

Having read several negative responses given to the «new» MacGyver, I cannot but say that so far I am not in agreement.

Sorry bozos, it's not all that bad.

You have a wrong idea about your judgment. Yes, it is an updated show, but some of the changes actually makes the new episodes better and more vivid.

Variety's statement that Lucas Till's performance is wooden and clunky, is centered on a stupid hope for a continuance of the old MacGyver. That however, would be equal to deny any actor making his own interpretation of a new role.

One of the things that really makes the series «better» is the explanations on screen and via voice-overs.

And the claims about «cheesy lines»? Sorry again, this is not Hamlet. Nor is it Ibsen. This is run-of-the-mill-entertainment. This is off-the-rack, not tailor made.

Now, one could discuss the cast, of course. But that is merely a matter of flavor. And flavor is like your backside, split in the middle.
