I may get my ears chewed off for the mere suggestion that it may not be up to scratch. I've never watched a single episode before. I had seen the film, ok I didn't love it or anything but i'd say it was watchable certainly.
I recently picked up the first season and watched the pilot alongside episode 2 and 3 I think, I can't remember. My father an I just traded smirks when anything cringe worthy came on the screen. The acting from some of the lesser known characters was so wooden I felt sorry for them (That Kowalski guy from the pilot had one emotion, confused!). The action was out dated but that's understandable. The female lead, I don't know her name was so bad, I hope she gets better.
One positive, was the Macgyver guy. I felt he really livened up the show, had good chemistry with most of the other actors and somebody who you could really root for when things are looking bad.
I'm sorry in advance SG-1 fans. Should I continue watching or watch Person Of Interest (something else that has taken my fancy) or just fe*k **f!
