So, out of what little information we have seen, what are you liking or disliking so far?

I am still VERY on the fence of the casting of Lucas Till, and until I see footage or a photo to sway me the other way, he isn't working for me ATM.

The title logo as seen on the chairs in the spoiler pics - I'm loving that. I think it oozes a feel of the old show while its still different enough to be fresh. If they can pull that same vibe off with other aspects of the show, it would be promising.

Shooting locations - some of the pics I've seen seem to have been shot in locations used on the original show. I've no idea if this was intentional, or they just worked for what was needed, but it gave me a sense of deja vu, which is a good thing. I liked it.

Lack of information - they really seem to be trying to keep this under wraps, which to a point I understand, but if it gets picked up they need way more media coverage and interaction and fast, as its what fans want these days.

What is everyone else thinking?

I also like the logo - a lot.

I can't say much about the cast. The only thing I've seen Lucas Till in was "Kristy" (pretty bad typical YA-horror-movie, but I don't even remember his performance) and one of the X-Men-Movies (Days of Future Past?). I'm really not into the modern Superhero-Comic-Movies and his role was rather small. I do like George Eads, but I haven't seen him in anything else than CSI. Don't know any of the other actors, but I guess it's not the worst thing having more or less unknown faces in this reboot.

The shooting locations seem interesting - abandoned warehouses, caves and old hospitals... don't know why, but after seeing the pictures and reading about George Eads shooting there I have a theory about the old St. Luke's Hospital posing as a psych ward biggrin.gif

I've noticed that posts about the reboot of Facebook have been getting a lot less coverage than posts about the old show which I found quite interesting. And the couple of posts which have garnered responses are mostly negative feedback.

Personally my biggest "not like" so far is Lucas as MacGyver. I really can't see him working in the role. His smile looks evil and smirky, he's only 5'8" MacGyver is at least 6 foot (RDA is just under 6'2") Having him looking up to others around him or being looked down on may seem like a little nit-picky thing but it's as much symbolic as anything.. MacGyver was never "looked down on" and he always stood eye to eye.

On the "Like" side the pictures give the feeling that the show might have some good action in it and be fast paced.

Wouldn't it be cool if that burnt out car in the pictures turned out to be Jack's cab and the Mazari was how Murdoc got started as a hitman! w00t.gif

Rather difficult to like or dislike anything since it has all been kept under wraps.

If they "teased" about something, we would have something tangible. But the odd twitter shots suggest minimal.

Casting is about it. And so far there is not much to judge. Had it been any other show, I would probably feel the same. As I mentioned before, I will need to see a trailer or the pilot before I gave my judgment. Cant really say Till is a bad MacGyver as I have never seen him play the role. As soon as I do, ill let you know! biggrin.gif
