There’s an old saying that goes: THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE ORGINAL. This is (so) true with the 2011 version of “Charlie’s Angels”. All in all the premier episode was alright – but it will NEVER become as p[opular as the one from 1976. The main reason for the original’s success was of course Farrah Fawcett. Nobody will ever be able to replace her. She was one in a million – now wait, make that one in a billion. Rachael Taylor doesn’t even come close.

I will still watch the show however -but- it will NEVER be like the original angels. Sorry Charlie!

oh and i absolutely agree that they should not have made them into full blown criminals, the movies of charlie's angels put a modern enough spin on how they became angels without turning them into bad guys. they were just kind of lost souls without a specific purpose (except lucy liou's character but still).

but i do like that bosley kicks ass now, and i disagree, making him gay would be too cliche, plus it would leave all the WOMEN without a man to lust ofter.

And i really don't like the blond one, i don't know her name, she just seems so cold and fake for me. (i mean the actress not the character)

this show will never be as good as the old one or as exciting and fun as the two movies were.

i am not sure if i like it, sort of both like and dislike at the same time.
all charlie voice thing sounded cheesy for me, i like the visual and action scenes but the dialogues were cliche and cheesy for me.
i am going to give it a couple of more tries but i am not sure where it's going for me

It was a little bit soapy for my liking. The scene after the car bombing was a bit too over dramatic I felt but somehow still lacked that emotion. It's a shame because I was really hoping this show would do well. In a big Rachel Taylor fan and she's a great actress but this show doesn't really show that. There was also something a bit off with charlies voice which irritated me

Was it suppose to be campy? Or was it just bad writing? Or was the acting really that bad?

Terrible show. I don't think it will last, it will be gone by Christmas break.

Watched it and found it to be really bad. Think ABC paid too much for the show. If next episode isn't any better it is goodbye for me. Also didn't like the voice of "Charlie" .

My first thought was that the writing was terrible. I liked Minka Kelly on Friday Night Lights, but this was just bad. I have no idea if these women can act. There's no wit, no depth, no believable emotion. Ugh.

made it as far as the group hug after the bombing

This show is really really bad in a really dreary way. You can't even enjoy how bad it is because it's too flat and dead to be bad in an interesting way. The first changes they need to make are new writers and a new director. All of the acting was terrible so I have to figure this has something to do with the director. Unless this show is completely revamped, it's an insult to ask people to watch it.

Totally agree with the reviewer. I didn't even make it past the first 20 minutes. The acting is poor, the casting is second-rate (compared to the original - won't see any "Farrahs" emerge from this crew), and it was just generally boring. Why mess with the original, and I just don't get the "thing" with Minka Kelly. Maybe her appeal has rubbed off from her time with Jeter? Don't know, don't care. Will NOT be watching again! Too bad, because I usually love the things that Drew Barrymore produces, but this is NO "Grey Gardens"!!!
