News: MacGyver, The Next Generation.
I may have mentioned here before, there is a contest to develop and produce a TV series along the lines of the 80's/90's TV show MacGyver, specifically with a female lead, the intent being deliberate encouragment of female involvement in S.T.E.M. fields through fandom. The original MacGyver series did a heck of a lot to encourage interest in science in a wide range of kids when I was in school, and I don't see how any new iteration of the concept of a hero using brains and knowledge over violence wouldn't have a similar effect today.

An overview of the contest progress so far.

A blog from one of the finalists about the basic intent of the series and her own pitch for it.

Ran across these updates today and it made me grin and go yay when not much has lately, so I had to share.

I met MacGyver a few weeks ago. Well Richard Dean Anderson anyway. He was really rather lovely.

I've heard that about him. I had a bit of a crush on him as a kid. :-)

Well, it was the 80's, the mullet has an excuse. XD

As far as I can tell from the internet, for real!
