MacGyver: Season 1 (2016-2017)




Critic Consensus: Despite using spare parts from countless successful TV procedurals, the new MacGyver fails to cobble together a compelling show.

Critic Reviews for MacGyver: Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (16)

The superficial, seemingly lazy nature of this MacGyver reboot rules it out quickly when there are so many other series coming out that offer so much more. Honestly, just go watch MacGruber instead.

December 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Cheerfully dumb throwback has science, heaps of violence.

October 4, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
Common Sense Media

The concept of the show works better than the execution but there's still a lot to like here in this inventive procedural.

September 30, 2016 | Rating: 3.0/4 | Full Review…
John Hanlon Reviews

If you turn off your brain, this isn't the worst way you can spend an hour. But it's not a particularly good show.

Salt Lake Tribune

Nothing fresh or compelling.

September 27, 2016 | Rating: 4.5/10 | Full Review…
The Young Folks

MacGyver isn't going to set prime time on fire. But it's watchable enough, and it seems like a good Friday night fit.
