I don't know what this is, but it's not Charlie's Angels
25 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I wanted so bad for this series to work, but it was just horrible. I tried watching the pilot but couldn't make it past poor writing, bad acting and the racing from action sequence to action sequence with zero character development. Why was it necessary to make the Angels bad asses? And that bit about Bosley being a hunk with mad computer skills is just plain dumb.

The next episode I tried to watch was the one where an aspiring model disappears and the Angels are called in to find her. They learn that this model shared a big house with some other models, so they have to go undercover and infiltrate. So far so good, as I anticipate they'll spend the rest of the episode at the mansion trying to find out what misfortune befell their client's daughter, just like the original would have. I assumed it would be about typical criminal activity like prostitution or white slavery gone wrong. But no, they turned it into an episode of international intrigue by having the models marrying foreign criminals for green cards! Turns out the model they were looking for got killed by her green card husband because she stumbled onto his global assassination plot, lol. Of course the requisite computer hacking, gunfire and action sequences ensue.

Same with the most anticipated episode, Angels in Chains. They go to a prison in Cuba? Again they take an original series' idea and try to "make it more relevant" by introducing 24-like elements, with the CIA getting involved and the plot evolving into one of international intrigue. What kind of nonsense is this? These women are private eyes, not Navy Seals!

In short, the producers writers/decided to forgot all about the charmingly cheesy and campy elements of the original series and instead created some mindless action shoot-em-up. Furthermore, the Angels in the original were very engaging and enjoyed great reporte with each other and none of that his present in this incarnation. I guess between all the explosions, machine gun fire, global threats and computer hacking there just wasn't any time left for good old-fashioned character interaction.
