Critic Reviews for MacGyver Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

"MacGyver" is so bland it's not even fun for a Friday night in.

Top Critic

CBS' MacGyver is an unnecessary, middling reboot that has little to offer - its biggest sin being a bland hero and eye-rolling stakes.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/10 | Full Review…

The MacGyver of the new age is an absolutely unflappable secret agent who is so capable of throwing down in martial arts combat that one wonders why he needs the craftiness at all.

Jul 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Centered around a full-time team of operatives, it deviates from the comparatively "lone wolf" nature of the original, though that's not necessarily to its detriment.

Jul 26, 2019 | Full Review…

I think this show has a ton of potential.

Jul 26, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

For its 139-episode run, Richard Dean Anderson's MacGyver was the patron saint of non-violent (or at least minimally violent) resourcefulness, and the greatest joy of the show seeing what nifty trick he would employ next.

    Seven seasons later and the first one is still one of the best.
