The original 1985 TV series starring Richard Dean Anderson “MacGyver: The Complete First Season“ is coming to Blu-ray Disc on October 30th via CBS/Paramount. This box set will include all 22 episodes from the first season in remastered HD video. Tech specs and bonus materials for this release have not yet been fully detailed, but stay tuned for any update. It’s worth noting that this show ran for a total of 7 seasons, so hopefully CBS/Paramount plan to release the remaining six in the coming years. The release is available for PRE-ORDER now over at Amazon. Below you’ll find a video I found on a foreign website (I believe it was French) showing the comparisons side-by-side of the original and new HD restored footage. This is not direct from CBS/Paramount, so keep that in mind.
