Did You Know?


At 2'30" into the film (around the swimming pool) Abby calls out, "Bosley" and the first person one sees is a look-alike of the original Bosley, David Doyle, fooling the viewer for a moment before revealing the new Bosley. See more »


The last sweeping shot of 'Charlie's yacht' clearly shows the name of the yacht's true owner on the starboard side: 'Star Ship', a cruise line out of Tampa, Florida, not Miami. See more »

Glamor Became The Centerpiece Of The Show
24 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The pilot episode of the short-lived Charlie's Angels is entitled,"Angel With A Broken Wing". After a mission involving a criminal gang involving child slavery resulting to Gloria's death,Charlie Townsend persuades Abby Sampson and Kate Prince to team-up with Eve French to seek retribution and arrest those involved in it.Little did they know that the mastermind into child slavery was the one responsible for it.Joining the angels is the handsome John Bosley,a former hacker.

Despite the fact that the plot was far from mediocre in the pilot episode,we get to see that the actresses portraying the angels - Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh and Rachel Taylor - are just there to look good and do nothing more.They were there to make the male viewers drool which unfortunately is what they are more than to fully appreciate the show.The actress unfortunately were limited in their acting abilities to make the episode compelling and interesting.The action scenes were also not-so-good as they were far from realistic.Just like what I have stated in the show's review,the show just wanted to let the viewers realize that gorgeous and glamorous women are capable of doing police work in which the show failed miserably as glamor became the centerpiece of the show as shown right away in the first episode.
