In the same house he lives in with his wife and family?

as far as I know, Lucas and his brother Nick live with their friend Mike Milligan in the same house and neither of them are married or have kids...

but it's not like I'm in the know since I'm not friends with them tongue.gif

Wait, I thought Lucas had/has a wife and at least one child? Did I hear wrong?

Completely wrong.

You're probably thinking of George Eads (Jack Dalton). He has an ex wife and a daughter.

Now that the contracts are up, I hope for more people to spill the beans.

Though I understand if they don't. As long as they want to stay in the business, it's probably not wise to. Kudos to Matt though.

Also, I share his opinion. They had a rough gem and handled it carelessly since... right from the start, really.

I appreciate his candor completely, and I even agree with him. But I realized he has a different level of risk as he's just a stand-in AND there was a time he wasn't even working of his own reasons, so he can do without the job apparently.

So Micheal Des Barres (the original Murdoc) think the Mac bird has flown.

https://twitter.com/MDesbarres/status/1389769739656851459

Honestly, I see why he says that. Knowing the industry and how against the odds it is for that show to come back (the ownership situation, how many shows actually don't come back vs. what does, etc.), he might have a front row seat for that.

How much of the decision to pull the plug was because of the threat of them losing that lawsuit, and them not wanting share any profits as opposed to doing it right after when it would look suspicious?

And I just saw an old interview with Tristin detailing verbally how she managed to get her parents moved to Atlanta for her and the show last year 😔

Not at all, would be my guess.

The lawsuit sounds like a joke. It's whole premise is that the reboot is actually a continuation of the original show and therefor their original contract still stands with CBS.

CBS' response to it is...

a) We've never heard of you and certainly have no contract with you.

and

b) It's a reboot not a continuation of the original show so even if we had heard of you before and did have a contract with you, it's wouldn't matter.

CBS actors have a tendency to pop up in other CBS shows, but I have a feeling that might not be the case anytime soon for the MacGyver cast.

I hope they have some projects lined up soon. Justin Hires is back to comedy stand-up shows.

I know Henry Ian Cusick has a movie coming out soon that he filmed in Hawaii before they started filming for Season 5. I'm not very excited though because Lenkov is attached as producer dry.gif

Maybe that's how they got to know each other and Lenkov brought him over to MacGyver...

Oh, and Tate Donovan's pilot for FOX didn't get picked up. So James MacGyver would be available for another season of flashbacks tongue.gif

Someone said (2nd hand knowledge here) that someone at paramount+ said they won't know if the show will get picked up again before October. Unless someone make enough sense to change my mind, that honestly sounds like a stall tactic so that hopefully people won't be was as into it by then

Justin was on the the TV series Rush Hour on CBS before it got canceled. Although he said he had to audition still.

I honestly see why even after we know what we know Tristin is still friends with lenkov publically. Not biting the hand that can feed you. Even though on his end it's bordering on creepy.

I'm not sure that the people in charge of answering customer calls would be in the know. They would just say what they were told to say anyway.

Also, I doubt that a streaming service would have the same time table like the network? It's not like they have to put together a Fall schedule. Otherwise, they would need to know by May 19 (the Upfronts) when CBS presents their new pick-ups alongside the schedule.

Would the nephew have the same Macgyver expertise? How much would he be like Mac? Would the comparisons become too much, off and on screen?

If the nephew was just a cut-and-paste version of Mac, I'm not sure how well that would have worked out.

This is talking about a planned spin-off from 2003.

How can MacGyver have a nephew if he has no brothers or sisters?

Here's the information about this show:

Also I'm not sure how this relates to the reboot?

Didn't see it having to do with the original either. The sections here seem to only deal with what made air and nothing else. Like I said I don't know if it was the right section

You must have missed this bit in the description....

"The story would follow the exploits of the original Angus MacGyver’s nephew"

Also it was made in 2003 so I'm not sure why it's suddenly found new life now after all this time. I'm assuming you saw that article mentioning it a few days ago?


There's some other threads here about this if you're interested in what others thought or want some more background.

It's stuck on my mind how they planned for Desi to just find her fiancee is still alive, her feelings to still be intact after all this time, and to just pick up where they were. Just so they can advance MacRiley... Talk about suspension of disbelief. Where in life do things just "work" like that lol

I'm not fond of this storyline. To me, they would make the same mistake with Evan as they did with MacDesi. We were supposed to believe them as a couple with them telling us they fell in love and dated for months off-screen.

Now they would just find her fiancé (in theory, they're still together since he never died) and they would probably get back together within one or two episodes. It's difficult to get interested in a new character and to root for couples that way.



That's always a sign you might be in trouble if your dashboard is on fire...

I think they did it just please the MacRiley fans which I think it is unfair for the rest of the fandom who don't like to see Mac with Desi or Riley.🤨
