This week’s failed pilot TL;DR:
Jared Padalecki (Supernatural) stars in a 2003 attempt to make MacGyver current and sexy! We think. It was hard to pay attention due to intense boring. Really, really needed a Richard Dean Anderson cameo.
You may remember MacGyver, the mulleted TV action star who could escape from the stickiest of situations by improvising complex machinery out of everyday objects.
Young MacGyver focuses on his nephew, who can really only improvise bombs out of other bombs. And those bombs explode into big clouds of boring.
