No one has to like or dislike anything for me I am happy with the way it's turning out and I am curious to see Lucas till I figure a few episodes in I will determine if I like or not.

I had a thought yesterday about the new show, and it relates to the voice overs. Do you think they'll use them?

I hope so honestly, it was a funny and interesting way to get to know the character. There's still one or another show that uses it, like the Flash.

Can I add another thought to your comment Mr Duct Tape - perhaps they will use graphic elements similar to the style techniques used in BBC's Sherlock - to emulate MacGyver's thoughts.

I really liked how they used this technique in the advert MacGyver and the New Citan.

They could develop all sorts of different techniques to achieve this and make the show very quirky.

That is another good idea yes RDoyleTv. There's so many possibilities that they can use in the show and make fresh and exciting for old and new fans of the character.

Another thing that could work and be a nice addition to this series is some kind of CSI-Style shots.

MacGyver could be in a locked... let say "science lab". He looks around the room sees one, two, and three chemical elements in a glass cabinet. He reaches for the nearest thing to him, and smashes the glass. Removing each container.

MACGYVER? WHAT ARE YOU DOING? As he to describe what he's doing(to the damsel in distress), or to us through voice-over. We cut in vision to a stylistic (CSI inspired) shot, showing and explaining the science behind the chemical reactions. Almost as if, we are seeing his thoughts.

Cut back to scene, show the macgyverism take shape. And ta-dah... He creates a BOMB to blast open a door.

Now that would be the ICING on the cake for me ! ! !

Albeit, used within moderation.

We know CBS that you can't rush perfection.

But, the suspense is killing us.

Even just to know the first word...spoken.

I'd be even grateful for that...at this stage?

C'mon CBS, give us something to tease us?

Actually all of this is quite good marketing on CBS part and I am quite happy with it similar to the clapperboard idea from Skyfall/spectre

Good job again Dash I look toward to each of your posts

So I figure CBS is likely going to announce their fall lineup within he next 2-3 weeks meaning we should get confirmation fairly soon if this is going to be picked up or not. My hope is of course it's not only picked up but it's an awesome reboot we all wind up loving and can enjoy for 7 seasons.

Thanks a lot. It's getting harder and harder to find something, though. And it takes hours... that's time I really could have spent doing something else; but it's kinda addictive *lol*

Some of the people involved in set design and make up post tons of set pics from other shows they're involved in (e.g. Agents of Shields). I guess we really have to wait if/until the pilot gets picked up. I'm pretty sure the hush-hush-no-posts-and-if-you-post-no-tags-at-all-policy will stop by then, so hopefully soon.

If I remember correctly the Knight Rider reboot didn't get picked up as a series until after the pilot had aired and they'd had time to review the viewership numbers. So going from that we may only see the pilot and then no series until summer.

Then again they may have enough confidence in it to just go straight to series. Who knows with this lot.

Two points

1. I had read on one of the articles back in March that Macgyver was pilot to series meaning if CBS green lights the pilot then it will be series. (Though when I read it I realized I had made 8 threads and don't want to talk too much here because I was told on another forum when I love something I tend to talk too much and I figured I don't want to get everyone here annoyed because I love Macgyver and I am excited to get new Macgyver adventures)

2. I have a feeling that Macgyver is gonna be picked up anyways specifically because every other network has a big spy show taken on abc 24 legacy fox etc Macgyver is the big one for CBS.

I've just heard on the grapevine, that CBS have their hearts set on MacGyver replacing their CSI void. Hence them casting George Eads within the series. I was also told that the secrecy and the lack of information is deliberate, with cast and crew told what they can and cannot post. My source who works at a rival network, said they've heard only good things about this impending pilot. They know how much of a big fan I am of original show - and all they would divulge to me was that - I wouldn't be disappointed.

While I have no inside sources from everything I have seen (including the pilot review) I don't think many Macgyver fans will be disappointed I am getting a strong 1st season vibe from everything so far (and Thank God they are using DXS as the orgnization) like I said this is beginning to feel very good of course some fans prefer the as I call them Mr. Rogers episodes (where Mac is apart of a community out reach issue which at this rate would be some weird cross over with teen mom) but I prefer the espionage epsiodes and I can't wait.

While is doesn't have to be all "spy" and espionage stuff for me, I definitely prefer the early seasons, so that kind of vibe would be good for me also. I didn't mind Black Rhino, but some of the Challenger's Club episodes and Tough Boyz were not my favorites.

So yes, early seasons vibe sounds good! smile.gif

I'm with you Macgyver12186,

I hated those...as you call them, Mr.Roger episodes (albeit I did enjoy the episode Tough Boys).

My favorite episodes off top of my head - were countdown, target macgyver, Kill Zone, the challenge, Hell week and any that had Murdoc in them.

I hope that the new series has a story which runs over the entire season, while having a "b" story which are self contained during each episode.

Don't be afraid to support this new series - I know that it may seem like their are only a handful of us. But I feel that the negative people, and RDA over-active retirement group, will either come round... Or turn out to be a dying breed - eventually.

I've just heard a little rumour (again just hear'say). Perhaps someone might be able to clarify.

But my source who works at a rival network in the US told me, that they have heard only good things coming from sources at CBS, re:MacGyver.

They tell me, that other networks are getting rather nervous about it. Disney for instance are supposedly stepping up their efforts to reboot the Young Indiana Jones franchise, in a bid to rival it.

In matters that may be unrelated, CBS are considering moving Supergirl Season 2 to its sister channel TheCW, due to bad ratings and exceptionally high production costs. The move would potential save the show from cancelation.

But the move means, that the budgets that would have been ear marked for that show will now go into others at CBS, most probably MACGYVER. If it is picked up to series. Who knows?

Huh... Seems the pilot is done!

It says on her Twitter profile that Meg London-Boche is pilot director David Von Ancken's Assistant; so she must know.

I agree, with the above comments.

It's quite clear, that we all are striving for much the same things in this new series.

CBS won't be able to please all the fans, with absolutely every decision they make... But just like any successful marriage, it is all about compromise. We need to be mindful of that... as the audience.

That said, there are positives and negatives with every decision that is made, in life. You must learn from your mistakes, how we correct them - is what defines us.

As CBS embarks on this new series - We should look at the character, beyond RDA's portrayal. There is more to a successful series than just one actor. All the cast and crew involved make up the necessary components for a successful series, and lets hope that their hard work and efforts translate onto screen. Lucas Till has won this role and I wish him the very best. I bear no reservations nor do I rush to judgement...

I hope that we are on the horizon of new beginnings, new adventures and new macgyverisms. Stories that will entertain fans (new and old), and create a new allegiance of fans along the way, who will be inspired by this great character.
