I used to watch the original MacGyver. I loved that show. I was excited to see that CBS remade it. It stars Lucas Till as Angus MacGyver. Lucas played Havok in the X-Men series. Also stars George Eads as Jack Dalton. George is known for laying Nick Stokes on CSI.
The premise for this show is like the original. Angus MacGyver is a operative for a US government agency. He is a jack of all trades and can use everyday items to help save the day.
The pilot had a good story line. It tells how Phoenix Foundation got its name. Also tells the backstory of Angus MacGyver and Jack Dalton. I liked the first episode. I will keep watching to see if I will like it.
