Charlie's Angels Rip Off
28 September 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This show came out at the height of the popularity of Charlie's Angels and will always be remembered as nothing but a cheap imitation. The only difference was that there were only two girls on this show as opposed to three. Also, the acting from the two leads had nowhere near the chemistry that the Angels had. I just bet that Priscilla Barnes doesn't put this show on her resume, unlike the show that helped make her famous, "Three's Company".
