  • The pilot of "Charlie's Angels" is a mediocre presentation of the series. Thanks somethings have changed and the series became a classic show in the history of worldwide television.

    5.0
    I was really looking forward to watching this episode and once I did I felt very dissapointed. This episode is a mediocre presentation of the series, it would have been much better if "Hellride" had been the first episode of the show instead of this one.



    The plot is silly and the episode is very slow. Its lenght is longer than a normal episode, of course it's a pilot, but in the first half an hour we don't really see many ineresting things. Someone hure the angels when the owner of a vineyard disappears and like his second wife and her boyfriend are going to inherit everything, first Kelly and then Sabrina have to pretend that they're the daughter of that man. Thanks may things were changed. First Townsend Investigation's office, that white building looked like a church or a rich person's house, and the office seemed to be the living room of a house. The character of Woodville was removed, the girls have enough help with Bosley they didn't need another man to help them and to tell them what to do as in the woods' scene. And third, someone thought they were detectives and they have to carry a gun. Who goes to atch the bad guys one night to he woods without a light, and more important, without a gun? Thanks Tommy Lee Jones was there to help Sabrina with the armed and dangerous bad guy when usually, in the theree seasons Kate Jackson portrayed the character, she was the first one in taking her gun out. Furthermore, if you go undercover at night you have to wear black clothes, but Jill wore a maroon sweater and a purple cap, then went inside the river and hadn't a drop of water on her face afterwards. In conclusion, a boring and dissapointing episode.moreless
