TV Talk: Day 38

Tv show: MacGyver

Aired: September 29th, 1985 – May 21st, 1992

About: Richard Dean Anderson stars as Angus MacGyver who uses everyday objects as equipment to help him save the day. He also works for the US Government.

Would I recommend: Yes, I would. It’s awesome.

Other Info: There was also two tv movies. And a reboot made in 2016 which starred Lucas Till as a younger version of Angus MacGyver. I already covered the spinoff as well so not much else to add here.

TV Talk: Day 37

Tv show: Magnum P.I. (2018)

Aired: September 24th 2018 – Present

About: Jay Hernandez plays Thomas Sullivan Magnum in this reboot of the original show of the same name which starred Tom Selleck in the title role.

Would I recommend: I mean, if you want to see how the reboot is done then go ahead, but if you are a fan of the original show then I wouldn’t recommend it. There might be a reason you might not like the reboot either because you grew up with the original or just don’t feel like it is isn’t the same without the mustache Tom Selleck had in the original. For me, its okay but.. I prefer the original.

Other Info: If you want a gist of the show its about Thomas Sullivan Magnum as a P.I. (Private Investigator) solving cases in Hawaii. He stays at Robin Master’s estate with Jonathan Higgins (Original) and he also has two friends, T.C. (Theodore Calvin) and Rick Wright. In the reboot, Jonathan Higgins is re-written as a woman named Juliet Higgins. Kinda wondering how long this reboot will last.

TV Talk: Day 36

Tv Show: MacGyver (2016)

Aired: September 23rd, 2016 – Present

About: Lucas Till plays a younger version of Angus MacGyver. This is a reboot of the original show of the same name which starred Richard Dean Anderson in the title role.

Would I recommend: Yes, I would. It’s actually a good reboot.

Other Info: If you want a gist of the show, MacGyver (The Original and The Reboot) is pretty much about a man named Angus MacGyver using everyday objects as equipment and creating stuff out of those objects to help him save the day. And he also works for the US Government.

Extra Info: There was a planned spinoff called Young MacGyver in 2003 with Jared Padalecki but only the pilot was made. Yeah, sounds awesome now that I think about it. Who knew that information would be so cool to find out about.

 

TV Talk: Day 35

Tv show: Knight Rider 2008

Aired: February 17th, 2008 (TV Movie) September 24th, 2008 – March 4th, 2009 (Regular Series)

About: A Reboot of the 1982 show of the same name.

Would I recommend: If you are new to Knight Rider then yes. However, if you are a fan of the 1982 tv show then give it a watch and see for yourself. I have only seen the TV Movie of Knight Rider 2008.. and I watched a bit of it then stopped since it was bleh. I mean it was nice to hear a kinda okay mix of the Knight Rider Theme but other than that.. its just not Knight Rider without Michael Knight and the Original KITT.

Other Info: There was a TV Movie that was a backdoor pilot for the Knight Rider 2008 Reboot.

Additonal Info: In the TV Movie, Val Kilmer voices KITT and the car is a different model and brand.
