Hi all!

Been watching MacGyver since I was 11 (early 90s), and it's my all time favorite nostalgia show to watch. Been on another Mac kick, so thought I would join and get in on the discussions.

I can't wait for the HD remastered Blu Ray - already pre-ordered!

Hi there and welcome to the forums!

Yes, so exciting to get that BluRay release! Longtime MacGyver fan as well; have been watching since it premiered in 1987 in Switzerland happy.gif

The Reboot sure brought many fans of the Original show together to talk about MacGyver again, so that's definitely a plus.

Thanks! Zoe is my name so it worked out nicely - when I was a kid I used to think it was sooo funny how frustrated Mac got at her, constantly yelling ZOE! My name wasn't as common then in America lol....

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

@DashboardOnFire I guess I just had accepted the terrible SD quality for older shows - the two HD video samples of MacGyver have kind of blown my mind - especially in the distance shots. I wonder if they will update any of the streaming services to HD as well - I'll buy at least season 1 either way though for support.

(PS - Ugg the reboot definitely did not bring me here. I hate it sooo much I actually can't get through an episode. Not even just because of how much better original MacGyver is, but it's just a terrible show)

I tried several times - I really did. I even just watched the MDB Murdock episode (young Murdock was the best rendition I've seen so far on that show). It just makes me cringe so hard - I'm sure it's that I'm too attached to the original series - but the heart of the show is just completely missing. Jack is such a different character... and so is Mac. I don't think a modern interpretation would have been impossible, but they changed the format of the show so much they basically just slapped the macgyver name on it. /rant over

I wonder if the age demo for those who like the new one is on the younger side? Also, I was super entertained that I *finally* after watching for 27 years have caught up to MacGyver's age laugh.gif

Well, I was 16 when the reboot first aired. I saw that before the original, so my love for the original wasn't in place yet to taint my view of the reboot. Not sure what that means, take that as you will wink.gif

Thanks!

Does anyone know how to turn off email notifications? I can't find a subscriptions link in the control panel as the email suggests... macsak.gif

I think you have to go to your control panel, and look at the column on the left. There should be a heading that says, "Subscriptions". The two links underneath should lead you to a couple of lists that you can unsubscribe from.

Ah thank you! For some reason I read all the links without reading the headers they were under, lol.

MacGyver came out when
I was first year college. I
Think what interests me
Most about it is the problem
Solving that is generated by
The show. I have bought several
Episodes and given them to
People to get them the Richard
Euphoria

As we grow we learn and I am
Glad that Richard gave to the
World this treasure

God bless to the group

First off, WELCOME!

Second off, I agree with you re: the new macgyver. I've only seen a few minutes of a couple episodes and it just doesn't have the feel of what I think MacGYVER should. It doesn't stand out from other shows like the original did.

Thank you!

I'm long overdue to be hanging around these parts... Steadfast fan since 1991.

It was just one of my random MacGyver kicks that brought me here, but great timing with the new Funko Pop, Board Game, Slot Machines, HD RELEASE!! w00t.gif
