Oh dear, one to skip.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Re: MacGyver reboot

Damn, looks a lot worse that I thought it could ever be.

Re: MacGyver reboot

Looks absolutely horrible. I'll stck to the original, which was nice.

Re: MacGyver reboot

Hawaii Five 0 reboot is way better than the original, so I'll wait and see? Star Trek Next Gen was pretty good too?

Re: MacGyver reboot

The first episode aired yesterday.  It was pretty good and with a twist.  I'll be tuning in again.

I enjoyed the spy vs spy vibe.

Re: MacGyver reboot

You know I thought without being so sure that the gal that played the character 'Nikki' might be the same gal who played 'Charlie Matheson' in Revolution, and after some checking learned it is the same actress.  I don't think I'll ever quite remember her difficult name, but it's Tracy Spiridakos.  The Tracy part is not so bad but Spiridakos?

It's Greek to me.

Re: MacGyver reboot

I may be biased, but i really want this to be good.  MacGyver was the coolest guy with a mullet on TV.

Re: MacGyver reboot

The pilot was pretty good. I never saw the original.

Re: MacGyver reboot

it was okei..

Re: MacGyver reboot

Yeah, I also found it a little cheesy and he likes his hair too much (flips it around and lovingly runs fingers through it a little too often). So we'll see if the spy stuff goodness manages to offset the cheese enough to keep this around.

Re: MacGyver reboot

I've only watched a couple of the original.  I like that his muscle-y sidekick isn't *just* muscle. He actually contributed his brain to the op.  Having Nikki

"die" and become part of the bad guys, then escape custody
seems a tired trope, though.

We'll give it another few episodes to make up our minds.

PS - I *love* Vinnie Jones, so that was a treat!

I said it before and I'll say it again, Hawaii Five-0 is the best reboot I've ever witnessed and I've just about seen them all. The 2010 series is head and shoulders better than the original and it keeps getting better each season. Speaking of which, this season has started off with a BANG!! So far this season the first three episodes alone are enough to tell me that this season is going to be killer!! big_smile

Star Trek TNG on the other hand was beyond pretty good, it was absolutely stupendous, and although it wasn't a reboot it definitely was one of my most beloved and favorite series from the Star Trek franchise. There were numerous episodes throughout it's seven season run that were without a doubt Oscar-worthy imo.

Re: MacGyver reboot

I have to say

SPOILER Show
that I was rolling my eyes at the beginning of the 2nd episode when he and his side kick were quickly walking through a smoke filled building.  Instead of filtering the air with his shirt or something he was repeatedly whacking at the air in such a ridiculous manner.  Cheesy it was, and the likelihood of, say, what happened in the stairway?

Fortunately, it got better and more entertaining beyond that.
