    At least SOME of the original MacGyver stuff was almost believable.

    Yeah you are right! I didn't even catch that.

    It is like whoever is writing this show is making every effort to get every single detail wrong. If they were doing it for comedic effect it would be one thing, but if you watch the show, even though it does have some light heartedness to it, it is obviously trying to be serious about the science. And failing miserably.

    Yeah it was pretty bad but not this bad. The new MacGyver is almost as bad as Scorpion. I think it is made by the same producer. Who also does the new Hawaii 5-O which has a lot of gaffs in it too. Alex Kurzman.

    Yeah I was looking for my old thread and couldn't find it so I made it again.

    Like I said I like to watch it for the goofs. A show I love to hate or hate to love.

    and on TV it is sooooo simple to just knock someone conveniently unconscious. And they recover in minutes with no lasting damage. In real life it is pretty hard to knock someone out and if you do, you probably gave him brain damage and he is going to be in rehab for a year.

    Same with getting shot. In real life cops get shot and spend months in the hospital and rehab. On TV they get shot, put on a tourniquet and keep going to get the bad guy.
    That's Hollywood in general. If someone (especially the star) has the stew beat out of them a day later at most they have a tiny, usually photogenically placed bruise that disappears in short order. And remember the old Westerns where someone got shot in the shoulder with a .45 and only had to put their arm in a sling for a day or two before feeling right as rain and ready to go.

    In the original Lethal Weapon Mel Gibson's character is brutally tortured has to fight his way to freedom and then runs a couple miles to stop the bad guy -- by fighting him hand to hand.

    Or never run out of bullets.

    In one episode of the old show Starsky and Hutch they got ambushed along a stretch of highway. I counted (I'm the sort of person who does that) that between the two of them they fired well over a hundred rounds before they stopped and reloaded. Considering that this is what they carried that was quite the feat.


    Of course rogue tech has been working on a solution for that


    The other hand is, um, placed for balance. Yeah. That's it

    MacGyver's producers said that they made a point to leave out stuff so that there wouldn't be copycats

    But they also did some obviously stupid things that broke science. Like exploding oxygen tanks. I think mythbusters used to have macgyver episodes where they busted the show pretty bad.

    I remember a "film loop" where The Rifleman is walking down the street firing his rifle like 30 times, then he stops, takes a bullet out of his shirt pocket, loads it into his rifle, and continues another 30 rounds....

    And, immediately following, they talk in normal voices with no hearing impairment whatsoever... a normal guy would be yelling "WHAT? What's THAT YOU SAY!?!?!"
