What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I'll be honest. When I first read there was going to be a new MacGyver show I was like what? Hell no. Especially not with that blond babyface snotnosed kid. But then, I put my issues aside and watched the first episode. And grudgingly, I was kinda surprised. Yeah, I actually liked it. Okay sure, still with some doubts, but after a few more episodes those too vanished. Most of the stories are pretty good and just about the whole cast does a fine acting job. There's not really much of a weak link anywhere. Solid protagonists and pretty much annoying (as they should be) antagonists keep the show interesting. I can't say every fan of the old Macgyver will like the series but I am sure if everyone gives it a fair try most of them will not be disappointed.
