I guess it was unavoidable at some point. So, let’s talk about the new show for a bit.
There will undoubtable be many people who will love it. For them I hope this will be a success, and for them I am also happy about the massive twitter campaign PL has going. 😉
And of course I will be very happy for all the people who put their heart and hard work into this show. I wish them nothing but the best.
Do I think it will be a success? Even experts have no real clue why a show that has all the right ingredients sucks in the ratings; or why a show everyone doomed from the get-go is a huge success.
So, I don’t know whether this will be a long running show or not. What I do know is that I won’t become a fan of it. Not because I won’t give it a shot, no I will watch a couple of episodes. But I do know what kind of people I like, and this kid, playing MacGyver, is an absolute no-go for me.
It might be shallow and even wrong on my part, but I have never liked a show where I didn’t like the lead actor. I need to feel a connection to him. There are no exceptions to that ‘rule’. There is not one single show I like or loved in the past where I didn’t care for the lead actor.
This new show might even be really good, but I honestly can’t see myself getting warmed up to that lead guy.
That young man just doesn’t give me anything. At all. Is that fair to the show? No, maybe not. And in no way does it mean the actor isn’t any good. I have actually no idea.
But I have no desire to find out. And there lies the problem. At least for me. Honestly, I am already tired of him. LOL, sorry, but the bombardment of pics and little scenes and all that other stuff is just too much. Less is more. That goes for almost everything in life.
Why do I even post this here on Mostly? I just like to give you a platform to discuss, rant, praise or whatever comes to mind, without being judged by anyone.
You love the way the show is promoted? Great.
You don’t? Great.
You are looking forward to the MacGyver-Reboot? Fantastic.
You can voice it all here. No one will think any different of you, no one here will tell you that you’re just ungrateful or childish because PL doesn’t give all his love to just one show at the moment. 😉
So, discuss away.
