Charlie's Angels Pilot

Let’s see: What’s wrong with this show?

-Bad casting, especially of Minka Kelly, as we predicted.
-Bad acting. Or is it bad dialogue? We’re not sure. It could be both. The bottom line is that it sounds stilted and fake.
-All of the girls lack charisma. The blonde is the best, but this won’t make any stars.
-No substance. Just pretty girls and action. If that’s all you watch TV for, this is the show for you. We like TV that makes us want to write about TV.
-We already have Alias, Nikita, and every action movie with a woman ever, so this is unnecessary.
-Why is Bosley young?
-This makes Hawaii Five-O look like a masterpiece.
-It’s on Thursday nights, which are already crowded with actual good shows.
-It bored us and was hard to watch.
-The characters are weak.
-We enjoyed nothing.

This show is unworthy of Victor Garber’s golden voice.

Pilot grade: D-


  1. Hahaha! So the show was...exactly as expected. I was attempting to completely suspend disbelief about Minka Kelly's South-American-orphan-turned-hardened-car-thief schtick, but they were just asking too much from me.
    The blond lady from Grey's Anatomy wasn't half bad, though. I predict a full season of sinking ratings, followed by an unceremonious cancellation in the spring.

  2. We tried to like it, to be fair. It just didn't happen. We're sure some people like it. But we suspect they haven't seen better TV.

  3. I watched about 10 minutes and said "I was totally into the oversexed fake fighting chickens in the early 2000s with Carmen Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Berrymore... now it's boring." Then I deleted it from my tivo season pass. Fail.

  4. The first Drew Barrymore Charlie's Angels was really fun. What happened?
