New Trailer for the Ridiculously Silly Looking Series Reboot of MACGYVER
CBS has released a new trailer for their upcoming series reboot of MacGyver. This is the first footage that I've seen from the show, and I've gotta say... I'm not impressed. The show looks bad. With director James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7) behind the project and even directing the pilot episode, I thought for sure it would at least look like a decent show, but nope.
One of our writers wrote up a piece about the footage that was screened at Comic-Con, and he hated what he saw. You can read his thoughts on the series here. It looks to me like the show is trying to be clever and witty, but it just comes off as being stupidly silly and ridiculous.
The series stars Lucas Till (X-Men: Apocalypse) in the role of MacGyver; Justin Hires will play Wilt Bozer, MacGyver’s roommate; Tristin Mays will play Riley Davis, who is a computer hacker; and George Eads (CSI) will play Lincoln, a conspiracy theorist who works for the government.
MacGyver will premiere on CBS on September 23th. Checkout the trailer for yourself and let us know what you think. Does it look like a show you might enjoy? Who knows, maybe it will end up being one of those "so bad it's good" kind of things.
