Critic Reviews for MacGyver: Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (16)

It looks cheap (even though CBS decided to scrap the entire original pilot and make a new one), the action sequences are rote, the dialogue is mostly generic, and the characters are all one-dimensional.

September 23, 2016 | Rating: D | Full Review…

It is trying very, very hard to fit in. It has the right elements; what it hasn't yet quite figured out yet, though, is how to combine them into something that will be truly explosive.

September 23, 2016 | Full Review…

The resultant explosions look cheap and the cliche-pocked script keeps self-destructing.

Till may get more of a workout than Minnesota's Richard Dean Anderson did in the original series, but he needs better dialogue if he wants audiences to keep running with him.

September 22, 2016 | Full Review…

Till's got charm and his on-screen bromance with Eads is one of the few elements that actually works. But patience and bromances won't save this. A smart, compelling, up-to-date rethinking just might.

September 22, 2016 | Rating: D | Full Review…
Top Critic

It's a well-made distraction.
