MacGyver movie: good idea or bad idea?

I think Patty and Selma Bouvier just had simultaneous heart attacks. Television's most resourceful secret agent--Angus MacGyver--may be getting back into action on the big screen, if New Line Cinema gets its way. The production house is developing a movie-sized version of the 1980s action show MacGyver, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Sci-Fi closing the Stargate

When one door closes, a window opens. When one gate closes, then what?

Sci-Fi channel has pulled the plug on more seasons of Stargate: SG-1, which at 10 years is the longest-running science-fiction series ever on US TV. The network ordered another season--the fourth--of the show's sister series Stargate: Atlantis.

Stargate: SG-1, which aired its 200th episode on Friday, premiered on cable network Showtime in 1997. It ran for five years before switching to the Sci-Fi Channel. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show's producers never liked the fact that Showtime demanded full frontal nudity be worked into the episodes.

The Stargate series are based on the 1994 film Stargate, which told of the discovery by scientists of a dimensional vortex. Kurt Russell starred as the leader of a team of soldiers and scientists who step into the stargate and experience ...

This fall's Simpsons guest stars

This fall season, The Simpsons will be joined by a star-studded roster of guest voices, including Alec Baldwin, Dennis Rodman, Terry Bradshaw, and more. Kelsey Grammer will return to the show in his recurring role as the menacing Sideshow Bob.

Baldwin, who played himself in a prior episode of the show, will return in the season premiere as manatee-saving marine biologist Caleb Thorn, who attempts to steal Marge's heart after she leaves Homer for the umpteenth time. Her latest reason: Homer allows Fat Tony (Joe Mantegna) to shoot an adult movie in the Simpsons' living room as payment for a gambling debt.

Dennis Rodman and former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw will join forces in the annual "Tree House of Horror" Halloween episode, in which they will play themselves and, according to Fox, "stir up tricks ...

MacGyver star Dana Elcar, who enjoyed a successful acting career despite the loss of his eyesight, passed away this past Monday.

Goodbye, Dana Elcar

Dana Elcar, famous for his MacGyver role of Pete Thornton, has died. The 77-year-old actor succumbed to complications from pneumonia in a Ventura, CA, hospital on Monday, June 6.

Elcar ran away from home at age 13, and spent a night repeatedly watching Citizen Kane in an all-night movie theater. His son, Dane Elcar, suggests that this experience was the inspiration for Elcar's 50-year career in television, film, and stage acting.

When glaucoma began to affect Elcar's vision during the fouth season of MacGyver, the show's producers decided to write his condition into the show instead of writing his character out. By the series' end, Elcar had lost nearly all of his eyesight. He continued to act despite his blindness, and he played blind men in guest appearances on Law & Order and ER.

This week Stargate SG-1 fans relish the release of eight complete seasons of the series packaged in new, slim sets of five discs each. Medium and The Dead Zone materialize on shelves, as does Cheers, Frasier, Beavis and Butt-head, and lots, lots more!

MacGyver is a different kind of hero: he doesn't use weapons, he's afraid of heights, and he's an expert at making complicated machines out of ordinary things quickly. He works in the employ of The Phoenix Foundation, a think tank dedicated to improving mankind. Pete Thornton gave MacGyver his assignments, occasionally getting involved himself or lending Foundation resources for MacGyver's various personal endeavors. Another sometimes accomplice was Jack Dalton, a long-time friend with a penchant for getting himself into trouble and relying on MacGyver for helping him out of it. MacGyver also had an archenemy, Murdoc, who sought to kill MacGyver many times, often through the use of ruses and elaborate traps. MacGyver's first name was a secret until the final season, when we learned just why he chose not to use it. MacGyver was produced by Henry Winkler/John Rich productions in association with Paramount Television.moreless
