MacGyver runs after the private jet and jumps into the landing gear just before the jet leaves the runway. The jet's speed at that point would be at least 100 MPH. It's unlikely that MacGyver could run that fast. However, because there is a cut shot, it is possible that, after MacGyver got into the landing gear compartment, some time could have elapsed until the plane could reach take off speed. See more »

Angus MacGyver: You know how you hack computers? Well, I hack everything else.

Just the Worst
25 September 2016 | by enterprisingbeautySee all my reviews

This pilot was just truly awful. I am a great fan of MacGyver, but within 10 minutes I was throwing things at the TV. Never have I so looked forward to and been so disappointed by a remake. It is so bad it is not even worth giving any details about the episode in case you get curious and give it a go, honestly waste your time on something else.

I am not normally a critic but I felt so strongly about this I just had to put it down to save others the disappointment. I hope for the actors sake, this doesn't go to air for the full amount of episodes so they might not carry the shame and humiliation of being apart of it. Even if it gets better, it has to come back from so far it will not make it even passable. Okay; rant over; and to cleanse myself I will watch the pilot for the original series and return to how TV is supposed be...
