While I don’t really have a problem with CBS and their reboot of Hawaii Five-0 but MacGyver is one that really doesn’t work both in terms of its style and the performances, most notable Lucas Till who just doesn’t look quite right in the role.

SEASON SYNOPSIS


MacGyver (LUCAS TILL) is back as he attempts to hunt down his nemesis, Murdoc (DAVID DASTMALCHIAN) tries to solve the mystery of his father’s disappearance. With the help of Jack (GEORGE EADS) and the Phoenix family — hacker Riley Davis (TRISTIN MAYS), prosthetics maker Wilt Bozer (JUSTIN HIRES), former CIA agent Samantha Cage (ISABEL LUCAS) and Director of Operations Matilda Webber (MEREDITH EATON) —, MacGyver answers the call when the world needs saving, armed with his trusty pocketknife and whatever he finds lying around.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 3.0/5


This five-disc set comes housed in a standard DVD case. Features include MacGyver in Cuba, Saving the Day: Season 2 and MacGyver: Special & Visual Effects featurettes, a Gag Reel and some Deleted Scenes.

 

VIDEO – 3.75/5, AUDIO – 4.0/5


MacGyver scrounges around the junk pile and assembles the DVD presented in its originally televised 1.78 anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio. Although there is some artifacting in a few scenes, still doesn’t look half bad with good colors.

The episodes come with standard but effective Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks with crisp and clear dialogue levels and some okay depth during the action-centric scenes.

OVERALL – 2.5/5


While I don’t really have a problem with CBS and their reboot of Hawaii Five-0 but MacGyver is one that really doesn’t work both in terms of its style and the performances, most notable Lucas Till who just doesn’t look quite right in the role. The DVD release has fine video and audio transfers and an okay selection of bonus features.
