Does he really say "I know what you're thinking" in his narration? Because that was one of Magnum's trademark lines in his narration so I'm not going to be impressed if they've "borrowed" it.

I think he does because I've read it in another review as well (which complained about the scene he says it).

But it might just be a one time thing and therefore a coincidence...

We heard him say it in that clip you posted a few days ago (at least, I THINK you were the one who posted it!) It was when he was hanging under the plane, and he said, "I know what you're thinking: This is insane." But the above review mentions that he says it about a plot twist, so I guess he says it more than once.

Hm... I have to admit that between blogging on the MacGyver Project and posting in the forums everyday it's all starting to get scrambled up in my head. It could be that I remembered that wrong.... I kinda read, write, watch and talk MacGyver right now and even dreamed about it last night *lol*

More about silly sentences by Yahoo: https://www.yahoo.com/tv/macgyver-creating-...-175538808.html


If I were 10 years old, I’d probably love the new version of MacGyver. It’s got a lot of the spirit of the 1985-92 Richard Dean Anderson-starring original, full of tips about how to lift fingerprints from a glass and how to get out of handcuffs. As I am not 10 years old, alas, I have to say that the MacGyver reboot is that rare thing: a likable bore.

It’s 2016, baby, so Lucas Till’s MacGyver is a shaggy-haired boy toy who says things like, “Thirty seconds on the clock: DIY or die!” His team includes a wild-haired hacker (Tristin Mays) who solves a knotty computer problem and then calls out, “Secret agents, gather round — I got your jam!” But villains still talk the way they did in the 1980s. The one in the premiere points a gun at our hero and gives MacGyver a lot of time to plan his escape by chortling evilly, “Well, I guess this is the end of your silly game of hide-and-seek, MacGyver!”

CSI’s George Eads is along, playing MacGyver’s old pal, constantly admiring the way Mac solves problems with tinfoil and chewing gum. You know this because he says things like, “My man is serious about his tinfoil.”

The pilot was directed by one of the new show’s producers, James Wan (Saw; The Conjuring), and it has a certain visual flair — the action keeps moving. The reboot gives you onscreen equations that explain MacGyver’s cleverness: When Mac wants to lift a print from a champagne flute, the TV screen shows us “soot + adhesive = fingerprint.” Got it?

As I said, it’s fun but tedious. The extent to which you enjoy MacGyver is in direct proportion to how excited you get when a character utters a line like this: “All right, guys, we’ve got some serious bad-assery in here tonight!”

Another video review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4-lS9jqORA

He adresses the use of sex, violence, death and being dark in general in reboots and I think he's right.

Now that the show has been airing in other countries as well, new reviews pop up every now and then. A lot of new reviews have been posted because of the NZ premiere yesterday.

This one got my attention, though - it says the same things we've been saying after the premiere of the pilot. And I still think some of these points are valid; even after I've seen 13 Episodes.

Well apparently Monster Trucks hasn't done too well. This is of course due to the more popular Hidden Figures keeping the top slot at the movies.

As for this guys interview, it means absolutely nothing as we have clearly established that Lenkov doesn't care. If his show is staying afloat with his current audience, he obviously doesn't need us.

I have already stopped watching MacGyver 2016. biggrin.gif Just don't like it.
