    They did a remake of the old series.
    It's on CBS All Access.
    It is decidedly not a family friendly show. Unfortunately I won't be watching it with the 7 year old.
    Watching the first episode now. I really like it so far.

    What do you think of it?

    I watched it as a kid, maybe not 7, but I would have been around that age when the later seasons were first on TV.

    I don't remember a lot about it though except he drove a Jeep, used a swiss army knife, and there were some explosions...

    We watched it as kids, too. And my kids have seen a few episodes of it.

    But there's a new one!

    My wife likes it, esp seasons one and two with George Eades (season three is currently showing, it's on right now).

    I'm not a fan, but my tolerance for the highly improbable and realistically impossible is very low. Some call it the suspension of disbelief, I prefer to call the No F*ck*ng Way Factor.

    As the series has progressed (regressed?) the NFWF has increased. We watched but didn't follow the original McGyver, but it had a tongue-in-cheek vibe that is lacking in the new series.

    My tells me, "Just put your brain in neutral.". No, I won't do it.

    Ah, the new one. I haven't watched it yet. Is the older one on CBS All Access? I don't know if the old one is family friendly or not, but my parents didn't care about what I watched.

    Hmmmm. I used to watch the classic one on Netflix. It's not there anymore.
    Reel good claims it is on CBS streaming with commercials for free. And CBS All Access.

    I remember the original series being good fun.
    Glad to hear it's back, sorry to hear it's NSFW. I bet at least one of my kids would enjoy it but she's only 10.

    V2.0 is missing the sense of fun; it has a OMG-This-HAS-To-Work! seriousness. I think Richard Dean Anderson helped make V1.0 fun.

    NSFW....sort of.....but, yes, there are some things that might be difficult to explain to younger kids.

    I only wish.

    My wife will watch almost anything. Have I ever mentioned how much I think the new Hawaii Five-0
    TOTALLY SUCKS?
