Storyline

Christie Love was a very beautiful and quite charming black woman who also happened to be a skilled undercover operative with the Los Angeles Police Department. Her smarts and skills often came in handy when posing as a prostitute, jewel thief, etc. in an effort to bring down the bad guys. Her boss was Lt. Reardon, who was replaced by Capt. Ryan. Caruso, Belmont, Valencia and Gallagher were cops with whom Christie worked. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

this show rocks!
14 December 2006 | by acshore86See all my reviews

I don't think "Christie" was given enough sufficient amount of time to to demise. If you ask me, putting on a show at 10pm back in the mid-70's is a disaster waiting to emerge. Most adults were in bed by that time, plus I personally don't think CBS counted on the TV-movie pilot being as successful as it in turn became. And yes, I am aware - as well as many others - Graves wished to tone down the violence of the show, but I doubt that had little impact, or the fact that her catch phrase, "you're under arrest, sugar" was worn out. Uh, hello ...look at Lansbury on "Murder , She Wrote." Jessica Fletcher always candidly remarked, "I think I know who it might be" nearing the end of each episode. Prejudice I think was the real crime of this show; the ABC executives not counting on its fame; a show with a black woman as a cop. Look at "Julia," that was a hit too, but was pulled only a few seasons after on the air. I'm sorry folks, but this show never fell through the cracks. And to sign off on a positive note of proof ...it is one of the few shows cancelled that people actually remember!
