9. MacGyver

In the ‘80s and early ‘90s, Richard Dean Anderson played MacGyver, a guy who could get himself out of any conceivable jam using whatever items happened to be nearby. Years later, Saturday Night Live would parody the show in the form of MacGruber, a skit that spawned a cult movie that’s apparently getting a sequel. So why not revive the series that started it all? The present-day MacGyver, who would be played by Aaron Paul, would shun smartphones and other gadgetry in favor of DIY solutions to whatever problems befell him because even in 2014, that’s what heroes do.
