so far, I'm not very impressed by the promo. even the photo by Tristin they posted today, we've already seen on Tristin's account... well, guess should just be happy we get more episodes and not being greedy.

Levy looked great in this episode. I still don't understand why they keep recycling old material when they have 6 unaired episodes to choose from *sigh*...

'MacGyver': Watch the Dramatic Opening Scene From the Season 5 Premiere (Exclusive)

via https://www.etonline.com/macgyver-watch-the...xclusive-157181

(don't know how to embed it)


MacGyver is back on the Codex case.

Ten months (and a pandemic) have passed since season 4 abruptly ended, which culminated in Mac (Lucas Till) and the team seemingly taking down the eco-terrorist organization following the death of Mac's aunt and Codex leader, Gwendolyn Hayes (Jeri Ryan). But, as we all know, the battle to bring down Codex is far from over.

In Friday's season 5 premiere, Mac and his cohorts infiltrate a luxurious hotel doubling as an international hideout for criminals to locate a possible informant with crucial information on Codex -- only there's a bit of a problem: Their target has a new secret identity.

ET exclusively premieres a first look at the dramatic opening scene, as Mac and Russ (Henry Ian Cusick) go to great lengths to gather intel at the steaming hot hotel spa. After IDing their mark, Vincent (Jessie T. Usher), Mac proceeds to drop some pills into a glass of water to incapacitate him. Later, after a heated exchange between Russ and Vincent, the mark finds himself unconscious after taking a single sip of tainted water.

"Shouldn't have worked that fast," Mac says, surprised at the accelerated turn of events.

"Yes, well, I may have given him something as a precaution," Russ reveals.

"Russ, I had it," Mac replies, annoyed.

"Better safe than sorry," Russ responds, as the two try to get Vincent's body off the ground.

Things go from bad to worse when security approaches the pool area, forcing Mac and Russ to scramble to cover their tracks. Of course, it being MacGyver and all, Mac figures out an easy way to create a distraction with only a hot bed of coals and a glass water bottle filled with water. Pressure and heat? Well, that can only mean one thing -- and it's not going to be pretty.

MacGyver premieres Friday, Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. For more on the series, watch the video below.

New Interview with Lucas: https://detroit.cbslocal.com/2020/12/04/luc...season-five-cbs


Lucas Till Calls ĎMacGyverí Season Five ĎThe Best Season Iíve Ever Hadí
December 4, 2020 at 8:00 am

Mac is back! New episodes of MacGyver begin tonight at 8:00PM ET/PT, only on CBS and streaming on CBS All Access. Everyoneís favorite handman Angus MacGyver returns with a whole new slate of challenges to overcome and gadgets to create. CBSĎ Matt Weiss spoke to Lucas Till, who plays MacGyver, about returning to work, what fans have to look forward to and telescopic rocket launchers.

MW: Lucas, nice to see you again man. Iím sure with the way that things have gone this year you werenít even sure if there would be a new season at one point or another. How does it feel to be back?

LT: Youíre 100% correct. I didnít know what was going to happen. When we came back, I was looking at the COVID protocol and I was like what is this, how are we going to get anything done? Then when I got here you get used to a couple of different protocols in the morning or a different routine and everything is the exact same.

Everybodyís wearing mask, you stay further away from certain people. You can talk to people, just going further away. It was touch and go for a while. Come to find out that this is the best season Iíve ever had. Itís crazy how that worked out.

MW: Thatís awesome. On this show in particular so thereís so much going on and stunts to perform. You said itís going really well, but what have been some of the challenges that youíve seen?

LT: Some of the challenges, honestly thereís false positives that wipes out an entire group for the day even though itís false. I think thatís frustrating for everyone up top too and frustrating for us, but itís better to be safe than sorry. It can happen and it may happen again, but thatís OK weíll deal with it because itís better to be working and making a show for everybody from all the way to the bottom to the top. Itís been really nice to be able to do this, like I said.

MW: Now that we are back thereís a lot going on as always with MacGyver. Your caught in between multiple women, you got lots of things to figure out here. Whatís going to happen this season?

LT: I never understood people being polygamous, thatís not what Macís doing [laughs] but Iím just saying having one significant other is hard enough, how do you have more than one? How do you get caught between and then heís also saving the world on top of it. Really, itís more about them making these decisions than Mac. Heís not really choosing, they are. They got the choice.

Itís awesome though because I love going to work every day with the people that I work with. Itís not always the case and we got a great group of people with cast and crew. Production and pre-production side, the writersí side all those people are just turning out these great scripts. Itís a pleasure.

MW: A big part of MacGyver are the inventions, or the things that heíll put together. How do this seasonís creations and tricks match up to some previous seasons that you guys have put together?

LT: Thereís some good stuff, today I used an old rotary phone to do a Morse Code messenger. The other day, I used a telescope as a rocket launcher or a fire extinguisher rocket. That was pretty cool. I honestly always forget when people ask me about the coolest stuff.

MW: When youíre building rocket launcher telescopes I guess it all kind of blends together at some point.

LT: [Laughs] Correct.

MW: Last question before I let you go. As you mentioned a few times itís amazing just be able to put out new episodes. Fans of MacGyver have been wanting new episodes for a while, so how good does that feel to give your fans new episodes to tune in and turn everything else off for a little bit?

LT: Yeah, itís nuts. I mean I realize everybodyís going through similar things. I realized talking to my dad or my mom, theyíre both fans of the show, and itís like oh wow this does mean a lot to you, it means a lot to me to do it. It means a lot to them to be able to watch on their Friday nights and escape whatís going on right now. I think itís going be cool to deliver that to fans.

MW: Absolutely. Lucas, thank you so much, always a pleasure talking to you and all the best.

LT: Alright, thanks man!



Tune in for new episodes of MacGyver on Friday nights at 8:00PM ET/PT, only on CBS and streaming on CBS All Access. Check your local listings for more information.

Lucas Till Teases Upcoming 'Awkward Tension' This Season on MacGyver
DECEMBER 4, 2020

Paulette Cohn


MacGyver Season 5 will have a fresh feel to it as the CBS series has a new showrunner, Monica Macer. And according to series star Lucas Till, sheís managed to go back through the previous seasons and find story points that were left without a resolution and turn them into ďastoundingĒ capers, making it look as if that was always the plan.

Along with that, Macer has added a film-homage element to at least two episodes. The first being the premiere episode, which takes a page from the John Wick movies when Mac and the team infiltrate the Grand Hotel, an international hideout for criminals that very much resembles WickĎs Continental Hotel, to find a woman with vital information on Codex.

ďIt was pretty awesome,Ē Till tells Parade.com in this exclusive interview. ďOne thing that we are first and foremost is an action show, in my opinion, and to be able to pay homage to the most action-y of action movies of our recent time, it was amazing. Levy Tran [Desi Nguyen] was definitely having a blast because sheís an action junkie. Everyone was loving that one.Ē

Even though the first episode back is still dealing with Codex, it is definitely going to feature standalone stories, which is good to hear because it felt as if Codex was dealt its death blow in the Season 4 finale.

ďCodex is exactly what you would think they would be,Ē Till says. ďSomething thatís been broken down and beaten down and no longer organized, while there are still remnants of the old order around in the world. Youíll still hear whispers, but for the most part, theyíve been defeated. It doesnít mean there arenít characters at play that belong to those factions, but for the most part there will be a lot of standalone storylines that deal with individual characters and their backstories or their current stories.Ē

The second episode with a film homage, which will air later in the season, will be a tribute to James Stewartís Rear Window. Till is calling it the ďCOVIDĒ episode, because it will take place predominantly in the house.

ďIt sounds dreary but itís not, itís funny,Ē Till reassures. ďItís one of my favorite episodes. Everything is so relatable because literally everyone in the entire world can relate to this episode all at the same time. One of the writers said it was super cathartic to write, because of all the frustrations we were going through, to put it on paper.Ē

In addition, this season of MacGyver is going to be what Till calls a ďFrankenstein season but in the best possible way.Ē What he means by that is some of the episodes were shot lost year and will be interspersed with brand-new episodes. So, the show will not be taking on world events as much as other shows, but it will still address issues.

ďWe talk about some really, really cool stuff this year thatís going on in the world without beating anyone over the head with it. And we talk about it in a really fun, entertaining, or cool way. Or a way thatís very smart, or a way that youíre not even going to notice,Ē he says.


This is your fifth season. You must feel more at home in the character now. How do you feel he has grown over the years?
I was just on the phone this morning with one of our producers and he was saying Iíve grown into it. I would agree, though, because it took me a long time to get used to the pace of television. I feel like Iíve finally not only gotten used to it, but I really love the pace. I donít even know what Iíll do when I work on a movie now, because itíll be too slow for me.

That being said, I feel like I can move within that space and pay attention to things more. The scripts are just getting better and better, so that makes it a lot easier. And the character stuff that Monica and the whole writing team are doing, itís easier to explore the character, or grow as a character, because I can pay attention to those things and theyíre giving me all the tools that I need to do that.

But Mac, his dadís dead, the aunt he just found out existed is dead, so the only family that he had is all gone, so he realizes the family he needs is right there with him. Heís essentially an orphan now. Not a lot of people have that to deal with at, I guess, Mac is 30 now. In five more years, he would be the age that Richard Dean Anderson was when he was MacGyver, so maybe weíll just have to go five more years so we can tie those two together, the storylines.

Mac broke up with Desi, but I always felt that wasnít quite resolved. But then last season, Riley [Tristin Mays] came to his rescue and there was a spark there. Is this going to get awkward? Especially if Riley and Desi become friends.
Well, itís a writerís dream as far as dramatic tension, isnít it? And maybe an audienceís. But you seem to use all the right words right there. Itís definitely going to get awkward because of how tangled the web is if they become friends, but then thereís feelings on both sides. If you like that dynamic, youíre going to love what the writers are doing this year. I was blown away. My jaw dropped when they told me what they were going to be doing this year as far as just the character stuff.

When Richard Dean Anderson played MacGyver, it was a one-man show, but this is an ensemble. Do you prefer it this way? It certainly allots for some time off for you!
Not only the day off, but I just want to take the time to express my gratitude for my cast. Because people donít get as lucky as I do with the people that I work with on a daily basis. We all really do get along and itís nice. We have fun at work, which can be an unusual thing depending on what show youíre on. And itís a tough job, youíre here 60 hours a week minimum, pretty much. You better be having fun or youíre going to leave. Iím just lucky to be surrounded by the ensembleÖI much prefer the ensemble.

I would think itís really nice to have a cadre of actors, because ďacting is reacting,Ē right? When you get to know people, it must make the job that much easier.
I was just complementing Justin Hires [Wilt Bozer] the other day. He and Henry Ian Cusick [Russ Taylor], there was something that was just magic. It was something that Woody Allen would have appreciated; it was just back and forth. But they can do that because Justinís just a genius sometimes. All of us, we know each other now. And because weíre all fans of each other, we end up suggesting stuff to do now. Weíve hit a stride.

You describe it as an action show. Which is actually harder: learning the scientific dialogue, or the physical stuff?
Iíll say this, itís neither one of those things. Both of those are my favorite things to do in their own respect. If you really want me to split the hair between those two, I will, but those things are my favorite and Iíll tell you why. Science, I love it, so itís easy because Iíll pay attention to it, and Iíll understand it, and Iíll have an excuse to look something new up and learn it.

And then action is great because I donít have to learn anything. I have to memorize five moves at a time, choreography, itís like dancing more than anything else. And also, my stunt doubles do a lot of the work for me and make me look good.

My least favorite part is learning arbitrary exposition which is necessary for the story. But when Iím talking about, ďWeíve got to rescue John Doe in Uzbekistan, in this small town with a 12:45 a.m. exfiltration.Ē That stuff is the worst, because it doesnít make sense unless you can visualize it. Thatís the most difficult part of my jobĖthe exposition. But the writers have been really good at balancing that out for all of us.

Sneak Peek for "The Talk": https://news.yahoo.com/talk-macgyver-sneak-...-191548164.html

Lucas Till, who's joined by Jay Hernandez ("Magnum P.I."), gives a preview of tonight's "MacGyver" season premiere on "The Talk." "This is one of my favorite episodes. It's a nod to the John Wick series," says Till. "We had to go under cover and find a woman who's asked for our help, but she has had plastic surgery on her face, so we have to figure out who she is, on top of everything else. And lots of bad guys, per us (usual)." Hernandez jokes, "Hold on guys, spoiler alert. I play that woman in the episode. I hope you don't spoil the episode, but it's a surprise crossover." On what an ideal "MacGyver," "Magnum, P.I." crossover episode would look like, Till says, "I gotta drive the Ferrari and you need to MacGyver something while you're in the chopper. I can teach you how to do it" Sharon Osbourne says, "So Lucas, MacGyver definitely wants to get behind the wheel of that Ferrari?" Till admits, "I do." Hernandez adds, "I don't blame him...anybody looks sexy in that car, even me."
