Fridays on M-Net channel 101 will never be the same again, and to help you ease into the weekend, a fresh new prime time line up is just a small screen away. Tomorrow, Friday 3 February you can catch the much-awaited reboot of the 80s jack-of-all-trades, MacGyver, followed by the hot new subversive teen drama Riverdale at 21:30.

Flashback to 1985: no smartphone, 4D or HD TV. If it weren’t for the extremely resourceful antics of secret agent Angus MacGyver, there would have been nothing to entertain on television. Now, fast forward to 2017, a fresh-faced new MacGyver (Lucas Till, X-Men: Days of Future Past) is the talented, laid-back young man, with the same set of extraordinary skills. And just like his predecessor, this rebooted agent prefers the non-violent approach, especially when he’s recruited into a clandestine organisation within the U.S. government.

With this problem-solver at the centre of the action, “Mac’s” team consists of maverick former CIA agent Jack Dalton (George Eads, CSI), ex-field agent turned director of operations Patricia Thornton (Sandrine Holt, Mr. Robot), as well as Riley Davis (Tristan Mays, The Vampire Diaries), an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer (Justin Hires, Rush Hour).

Who else but Macgyver can find unique ways to use tin foil and safety pins?

Enjoy the modern take of both MacGyver season 1 at 20:30 and Riverdale season 1 at 21:30.
