Just spotted this on Meg London-Boche's twitter straight after she said MacGyver filming had begun.

Me too like I said from the glimpses we have seen this looks far better and far closer to the original then young Macgyver (which apart from the macgyverisms and Paladacki's casting what did they get right?)

Like I said this show has me with a mixture of emotions smile.gif but mostly happy and excited

This looks AMAZING happy_dance.gif

Could this be a window into MacGyver's Office or home?

In anticipation of this show, I too have mocked up how I think the new MacGyver Logo will be used, with a slight nod to CSI.

See below.

Thanks very much, for the kind comments.

Here is another one I did, in the iconic style we are all accustomed too.

Now, If that doesn't get you excited... surprise.gif

Can't claim responsibility for creating this, but glad I found it online.

Felt, it was appropriate...as we are on the cusp of a new show.

If wednesday is the big day I am unsure if I will be happy or sad that day(meaning I am unsure of it will be picked up or not)

I am hoping so as well I still maintain and I would hope most Macgyver fans will agree with me that Mac is NOT some corny relic of the 80 but IS a really cool spy that CAN go toe to toe with the likes of Jason Bourne and James Bond. If they can exist always in the present and be able to work well then so can Mac.

I'm hopefully optimistic Macgyver12186,

The hard work is evident - all we can do is pray that it translates onto screen.

The CBS network are looking for a replacement for CSI, This is the perfect show.

I completely agree - MacGyver is as good if not better than the likes of Jason Bourne or James Bond. In fact, I feel as though the audience will welcome him into this mix of genre. Similar to the way Jack Bauer was played in 24, It would be even better if CBS were to expand on, and give the character more depth and dimension - instead of the goodie-to-shoes approach RDA portrayed.

Remember, a while back a survey was done "Who would you rather have, in a case of emergency". On the list was your usual heavy-hitters. But to everyone's surprise MacGyver came out on top at No.1

But sadly their is at least 2/3 generations of young people who, don't know who MacGyver is.

Let's hope CBS are successful with their attempts, to introduce this character to a new audience while retaining the cult followers.

All they can do... is their best. You can't legislate for how the audience will react, until it airs.

But I have everything crossed for next Wednesday to be as successful as possible.

In my experience with movie announcements, it's mostly some pictures first. Don't know how this works for TV-Shows, but I would prefer some moving pictures as well wink.gif

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.

I'd actually prefer they didn't do anything like that. I didn't like it in the Citan commercial, and I've only seen CSI once or twice, but didn't like it in that either. I find visual gimmicks distracting, and, well, gimmicky. They tend to take me out of the show.
Of course, I'd be fine with a voice-over.

When CSI launched back in 2000, those visual techniques (or gimmicks as you describe) were ground-breaking.

Those techniques were used artistically to enhance the audiences perception, understanding, and theory of forensic science. It was used to great effect and enhanced the shows credibility. Allowing an audience into a world they were unfamiliar about, but yet felt they understood. The audience liked it so much that the show grew, developed and enhanced its artistic style over 15 successful seasons. CSI wouldn't have been the same show, if it wasn't for them.

If these visual techniques were around back in the 80s, there is no doubt in my mind that they would have been applied to the MacGyver series at the time.

The amazing techniques used in the advert MacGyver and the New Citan, gave the audience a glimpse of how best they could be applied to enhance MacGyver. The BBC series Sherlock has a similar artistic style and used an incredible array of visual techniques, to allow the audience see inside Sherlocks world and his thoughts. To use something similar on CBS MacGyver, would only enhance, rather than distract the audience. Especially as this new audience will be more accustomed and acclimatised to other shows adopting a similar creative style.

From CBS perspective, the challenge is to create a well-crafted series that relates to an audience, and for it to tell exciting and engaging stories each week, that compel the audience to return and watch the next episode. The audiences today are much tougher to entertain and have higher and greater expectations, for the look and feel of content, and the stories being told. The bottom line is that CBS will only make a show if it relates to an audience. Whether that show is entitled MacGyver or not, doesn't really matter to them. Pilot season gives them an indication of what works and what doesn't. You know the old saying... throw mud far enough and it will eventually stick to something.

But MacGyver has been given this opportunity, and it should be embraced with open arms. It probably won't get another opportunity on this scale again, any time soon. And as such MacGyver needs to mature, evolve and move with the times. For it to succeed and wow a new audience, it needs to move as much away from the out-dated original brief it had back in the 80s, to a new and perhaps a more bold approach. It is the only way it has a chance at surviving.

Generally at these presentations, the head of the channel will welcome the press and invited guests for attending, followed by his/her mission statement for the channel. Then they show a taster-reel with an overall look at what to expect on the channel over the course of that season.

And sometimes show a clip or two to highlight each show.

Normally the press department, issue details and promos for each show thereafter.

Hope that helps?

After lots of looking, I finally found another account of one of the Crew members...

Kris Manning is listed as "utility sound". He posted an interesting pic in April:

I wasn't sure if it was actually from the MacGyver set; but I found the location being eerily similar to the Bronson Cave Area pics we had.

Interestingly, the only comment on the photo is by Ralph Cartel. His account is open as well, and he posted this pic on the same day:

(Not that there is much to see, but this is the confirmation the Pic by Kris Manning actually is from the set....)

I had to go back and watch the Citan commercial because I couldn't remember what your were talking about. laugh.gif

I think I know what you mean about being taken out of the show. I tend to focus on them and try to read it and understand it rather than what's going on in the story. That might suggest that they are badly done though because they are suppose to make the story easier to follow not make you think harder.

I'm not much of a TV watcher any more so don't think I've seen any other shows lately with that kind of thing in them.

We should have organized ourselves as soon as we knew they're going to start shooting in March; "patrolling" all the social media accounts... would have been interesting for sure. And a lot easier if you don't have to scroll that far back.

It really takes hours, but it's also kinda fun. A bit like an easter egg hunt laugh.gif

I do agree that the show needs to mature and move away from the outdated style of the 80s, but I don't think flashy visual gimmicks are the best way to do that. Stronger storylines, more well-developed characters, improved cinematography, etc, etc, are all commonplace in tv shows today, and I believe those are the things this new iteration of MacGyver needs to embrace. "Breaking Bad," for example is highly regarded as one of the best shows of all time, and it earned that reputation through its writing, acting, etc. We didn't need to see spiffy little graphical representations of how Walt created crystal meth. In fact, I think that sort of thing would have detracted from the show, rather than enhancing it.
(And, incidentally, the creators of Breaking Bad admit to being MacGyver fans, and it's pretty obvious when you see some of the ideas Walt comes up with. Heck, the series finale is largely based around one of Walt's "MacGyverisms"!)

Generally at these presentations, the head of the channel will welcome the press and invited guests for attending, followed by his/her mission statement for the channel. Then they show a taster-reel with an overall look at what to expect on the channel over the course of that season.

And sometimes show a clip or two to highlight each show.

Normally the press department, issue details and promos for each show thereafter.

Hope that helps?

Yep, thanks smile.gif
