Great interview indeed and such a great man!
"So I'm sure they're going to come up with a multi thread way to do the new MacGyver. But that's not really MacGyver. They're using the name MacGyver and the idea of a character who puts together a piece of tin foil and bubble gum and comes up with a bomb, but there's a lot more to MacGyver than just that. I don't think it's going to work, personally. I think people are going to be disappointed because it's going to be a wisecracking, younger version of MacGyver and likely won't have the charm of the original MacGyver."
I agree, there's a lot more to MacGyver than just making a bomb from a bubble gum, but from interviews We could see so far Lenkov's team is aware of it. at least I hope that they are...
"and likely won't have the charm of the original MacGyver"
Probably won't but I steel belive in those guys
