The voice of the fans was listened to by CBS with their first pilot attempt and now it's time to speak up again.

A large number of fans have, and continue to, voice their concerns and disdain for the new MacGyver show. The only way to get these things fixed and make this show all that it can be is to direct our voice to the people making the show.

I strongly encourage everyone to let Peter Lenkov and the writers respectfully know your concerns for the show.

PLEASE make your comments constructive. They will be a lot more willing to listen and take notice if we provide good solid, precise feedback and even ideas on how to fix some of the issues rather than hateful, abusive or generally negativeness. Please remember these people are working hard to make a TV show we will enjoy, so lets give them the respect they deserve when communicating to them.

Please also make sure that you are voicing your opinion based on having actually seen the show and not just feeding of what others are saying. You can't give constructive feedback on something you haven't seen for yourself.

Many of you are already communicating through the channels listed below. This is great and please keep it up as each episode airs. Continuous feedback and commentary will reinforce our views and provide valuable indicators of improvements or decline.

I've thought of doing a video review when I get some free time... but it would greatly depend on how it would even turn out, or if it was even remotely helpful. But, I'm willing to give it a shot.

Unlike some folks... I would like to see this show succeed, as long as they're doing the show for the right reasons... but it doesn't seem like they even get that part of the character.

Eh... XD

I'd be first in line but I haven't seen it yet. Guess I'm waiting till it airs here. That's at least how I wanna play it but I don't expect it anytime soon. If it airs here, it's probably after the holidays.

good initiative, although they already recorded more than six episodes so believe suggestions/changes would be reflected later on the season. At first I'm not impressed, not at all - the idea of having Macgyver as a team does not fit (in my perspective) or at least is a huge change in which they should've introduced the characters one by one, suddenly we have a new team for which I don't feel comfortable, in my perception Mac was a extraordinary human, able to speak several languages, also someone with scientific, engineering and computer knowledge. He does not require a team to complete the missions, also he never lies---

I do know that the production team reads our comments which is great, but some of the special effects that were used are out to date- too many guns were shown and I couldn't contain my frustration when they named PF with a beer, come on they should've taken a whole episode to re-establish such an iconic organization.

To be honest, I'd like to see a couple more episodes before I do anything. I think one slightly rushed pilot might be too early to pass final judgement on, or get a handle on what I like and don't. I am actually looking forward to seeing if episode two is better because they had more time with it...

If after about three its still not "Mac" then I shall send something appropriate and respectful. smile.gif

Yes, they're shooting Episode 7 right now - which is why I want this reboot to succeed and being picked up for a full season (or getting a second one).

I want them to change their mistakes and make it better because I feel their heart is in the right place. They listened to the fans after the unaired pilot "disaster" and already made good changes. They are fans of the shows. Imagine what we could have gotten otherwise blink.gif . Yet they still failed to really understand the core of Angus MacGyver and the original show and what made it so special. It wasn't just the MacGyverisms or the action.

Some might be due to pressure by CBS - I can imagine they insisted on a team or they don't want to anger potential viewers who are pro-gun etc. Of course CBS is mostly banking on a potential franchise and not on MacGyver's humanity. Yet I think changes are possible even within specific orders or boundaries by the network - and I want to see them.

Even if they don't change anything this season, they may change things for the next season. They did for the original... Season 2 Mac was very different from Season 1 Mac.

As long as they're listening, I can overlook some minor differences.
