Storyline

In the series reboot, we're introduced to three new angels: Abby Sampson, a Park Avenue princess who became a world-class thief: Kate Prince, a Miami cop who fell from grace, losing both her career and her fiance; and Gloria, a disgraced army lieutenant who has a way with explosives. Things go horribly wrong with one of the angels' missions, and their elusive boss, Charlie Townsend, persuades them to partner with Gloria's childhood friend, Eve, a street racer with a mysterious past.

Trivia

The Townsend Agency address, 1976 Ocean Drive, is a nod to the year the original series began. The first episode aired 21 March 1976. See more »

Goofs

When the flat screen TV is broken during the hotel room fight (at around 6mins) sparks fly out. Nowadays flat screen TVs use LEDs for lighting at very low voltages so no sparks. Even if it was CCFL lit screen the operation voltage of around 200V wouldn't either. It would require an old fashioned CRT with tens of thousands of volts to give any real sparks. See more »

Remember back in the day when all cop shows were either middle age men in raincoats or 20 something males with huge sideburns? Well one show dared to be different: Charlie's Angels.

In a time when the female role in most cop shows was reduced to either a minor role, sidekick or wife of said detective Charlie's Angels took those values and, quite rightly, turned them on their head. However, in this "reboot", all those values, and more, have been thrown out of the window.

Instead of ex-police officers we now have 3 former criminals (4 if you include Bosely...but I'll get to that later) who have very little in the way of personality. Abby, the rich girl turned cat burglar, seems to spend most of her time being hacked off with everybody, Kate, a former dirty cop who has the personality of a plank of wood and, finally, we have Eve a car thief who, I'm pretty sure, is being touted as the "tomboy" by the writers but comes across more like a Barbie doll with schizophrenia.

I fully understand that, when making a reboot, you need to make it differ from the original. But making Bosley a hacker who stole "a penny off each person's Tax Return" just gives you yet another reason to dislike this whole sorry mess.

Believe me, I really wanted to like this show but I found myself not caring about one single thing or warming to any of the characters. Even in a scene where one of the Angels is blown up by a car bomb I found their overall reactions to be both forced and wooden.

Are there any good points about this show? Yes, the plot was a fairly decent, albeit too familiar, story about human trafficking and would have worked had it had better actors in the roles and the level of writing seemed OK compared to some of the other recent reboots we've seen.

In conclusion I'd give it a 1 out of 10 and, I hate to say it, but I honestly don't think this show will make it past it's first season.
