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 »


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 »

Slick updating of a classic TV series
29 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

The thing about this 2011 TV series that possibly alienated a lot of fans of the original show is that it feels, at least in this pilot episode, more like a remake of "Alias" (a high-tech spy show) rather than a remake of "Charlie's Angels" (a low-key detective show). And there is a big plot "surprise" that is hardly a surprise - it's practically given away even in the opening credits! Not to mention that it's hard for us to feel a sense of loss about a character we only meet in two short scenes. On the other hand, I was impressed by the fight choreography (also very "Alias"-like), which makes Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh (no complaints about this casting!) come across as actual combat experts, without going as over-the-top as the two theatrical films of 2000 and 2003. And there ARE some nods to the original series: familiar notes on the score, the Bosley-lookalike (before the new, younger, battle-ready Bosley is revealed), and the 1976 Ocean Drive sign. *** out of 4.
