  • Not bad or as dated as most would say, the pilot movie mostly suffers from some rather flat scenes.

    6.7
    Christie is assigned to track a woman who's memory serves as the ledger book for a heroin kingpin.



    Classic "blaxploitation" was a little too niche for mainstream TV in the early 70s, so "Get Christie Love!" is actually pretty tame in it's references - often glossing over them or sliding right through them. For example, when Christie goes to interview a witness, she's assumed to be applying for a maid position, but the reference is quick and then it's on to the next thing. So actually, this installment is rather flat, the dangers are paced out on schedule but are rather tepid with no more panache than an episode of "Mannix". Of course everyone wants Christie, from the street scum she meets working undercover as a prostitute to her own boss (Harry Guardino) who tries to wrangle an invitation into her apartment late at night.



    Teresa Graves could actually be more exaggerated, she uses a high pitched voice and drops "sugar" and "honey" a lot but it's thinly delivered. The story isn't bad here, there's a little mystery to it, but after so many staged situations, it's hardly as stylish as it could be.moreless
