I tried watching a couple of episodes of the new MacGyver and I did not care for it at all.

The original series was much better,

MacGyver 2016 TV Series - Which SAK?

I'd bet he'll be using different models throughout the series. Probably the tools that get the most screen time will be red celloid tools since thats the SAK look that most people are familiar with. Craftsman would be a good choice but it's not on the market anymore so he might carry a Handyman--besides, the public associates the corkscrew with the SAK. If Victorinox puts a little money on it, they may get some product placement (like we saw in the original). If not, the show might use a generic red pocket tool with no swiss cross.

I've been rewatching the original on Hulu Plus lately. I'll be curious to see what the new one looks like. The trailer doesn't look too bad.

Super surprised they brought it back for a 2nd season.  Watched the entire OG series a couple times over the past several months

I've seasons 1-4 and really enjoy them.  Seasons 1-2 are probably my favorites.  I don't think anyone who loves the original series is a fan of the new one.  It has a cheap, almost bogus feel to it compared to the original.

OK, the majority opinion is that this series pales compared to the original. Does it have some entertainment value if you forget that it is trying to be a MacGyver reboot?

The two are kinda hard to compare to me... loved the original when I was younger, now I cannot really stand it anymore as its so full of "bad chemistry".
The new one is worse though...

I thought Executive? They probably use tool sets to fit the show, not the model....
