There are lots of things in the 80s that should be left to rot. This list includes Walkman headphones, hypercolor T-shirts, Bon Jovi and a myriad of TV shows.
The 1985-92 TV show MacGyver has remained a pop-culture reference for the last 20 years. To "MacGyver" something is to hack up a fix without using the proper tools. And of course there is the SNL spoof MAcGruber.
Now MacGyver is getting a reboot in a CBS show. Lucas Till, best known as Havoc in the X-men movies, is set to play a 20-something MacGyver who uses his wit, guile and every day household materials to stop bad people from doing bad things.
The 1980s show was great, but the question is if the show can work today? The 80s were different. Remember the Cold War? Remember Mr. T? Can a MacGyver show work in a world of iPhones, the internet and Justin Bieber?
