Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

America's guiltiest pleasure of 1976--the inaugural season of Charlie's Angels--has returned in all its jiggly, jolly glory in this tidy boxed set. It's hard to describe just how captivated the nation's media and viewing public were with cheesemeister Aaron Spelling's ABC-TV hit, but for awhile Charlie's Angels was wildly popular appointment television at its most self-consciously banal. The first season's three (and best-remembered) belles--lioness Farrah Fawcett (then Farrah Fawcett-Majors), pin-up babe Jaclyn Smith, and Thinking Man's beauty Kate Jackson--were something like primetime Spice Girls, gracing countless magazine covers and bestselling posters. The idea (even if a fan of the show didn't happen to be a straight male) was that one was compelled to choose a favorite angel as a kind of ink-blot window onto one's subconscious life.

While the 2000 Angels feature film (starring Cameron Diaz, etc.) kept faith with the original show's self-mockingly sloppy storytelling, there's nothing like seeing the old episodes for a lesson in narrative hubris. Basically, the three leading characters were bored policewomen wooed away to a private firm owned and operated by the unseen sybarite, Charlie (voiced--over speakerphone--by an uncredited John Forsythe). After a long set-up each week, the girls' investigations typically saw them going undercover: as fashion models--no great stretch--in "Night of the Strangler"; nurses in "Terror on Ward One"; roller-derby stars in "Angels on Wheels"; and vulnerable convicts (of course) in "Angels In Chains." The exploitation factor is not as bad as it might have been. The cast was so glamorous, their chemistry so perfect, Charlie's Angels never became a mere meat market. Despite such nods to modernity as Fawcett's no-bra look, the episodes were old-fashioned in their heroine-in-peril appeal, yet there was a difference: The Angels looked out for themselves and each other. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

This five-disc compilation features the entire First Season with the original Angels Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith and all their adventures from one of the most classic shows in television history.

Once upon a time, Jill, Sabrina and Kelly were police officers whose skills were being wasted in menial duties such as answering phones and filing. A mysterious millionaire named Charles Townsend took them away from all that by opening his own private investigation agency and hiring these gorgeous ladies as his operatives with John Bosley acting as their assistant and liaison.

NOTE:The Subtitles for the Hearing Impaired can be turned on or off by using remote of the DVD player.

It's great to have this 5-disc complete first season compilation on DVD. Although no one will confuse Charlie's Angels with "quality" television (this show was never meant to be taken seriously), this campy series is just plain fun, even 27 years later. Most episodes are light on plotline but the appeal of it's three stars make up for that. Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett-Majors and Jaclyn Smith have a chemistry unmatched by any of the future Angel pairings. Season One contains the series most "infamous" episode, "Angels in Chains." Every single "women in prison" cliche is here......the brutal prison matrons, the leacherous sheriff and deputy, the crooked warden and of course the obligatory shower scene. This is probably the highlight of the season.
This DVD collection gets high marks for including the original movie pilot. Although the pilot movie is just average, I haven't seen it since it first aired, so it was a nice bonus. Although Jaclyn Smith is featured prominently in the pilot, it was meant to be a showcase for Kate Jackson. Kate (for whom the series was created) was originally supposed to play Kelly Garrett but decided to play Sabrina at the last minute, thus Jaclyn Smith gets most of the screen time in the movie.
Unfortunately, the pilot movie is the best that can be said about the extras in the DVD collection. It also contains a rather dull featurette called "Angels Forever" which consists of a lot of geeky fans reminiscing about the series. TV Land and the E network had much better features about the series. Alas none of the stars are featured offering their thoughts on the series. The DVD also does not contain chapter selections for each episode, which is rather irritating.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bona fide TV classic... July 27, 2005
Format:DVD
Long before Magnum, PI put Tom Selleck on the map, Charlie's Angels owned the world of TV private eyes. Nominated for 4 Emmys and 7 Golden Globes, including 2 for Best TV Series - Drama, Charlie's Angels was a truly rare overnight sensation. The forerunner to modern day shows such as La Femme Nikita and Alias, creators Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts capped off long careers as showbiz writers by penning the unforgettable story of three sexy and vivacious private investigators. Executive producer Aaron Spelling (linked to innumerable hit shows such as Beverly Hills 90210, The Love Boat, Melrose Place, Dynasty, 7th Heaven, and Charmed among others) played a prominent role in the pop culture explosion of this series which witnessed the immediate mass marketing of Charlie's Angels trading cards, posters, lunchboxes, and endless other memorabilia - including a full-length feature film of the same name two decades later (2000). Through the duration of the series (five seasons), the cast changed continuously as Charlie's angels became media stars in their own right and left to pursue various opportunities in modeling, film, and TV...

Charlie's Angels centers around a group of gorgeous female ex-police officers hired to work for the Charles Townsend Detective Agency. A mysterious multi-millionaire with seemingly unlimited means, Charles Townsend communicates with his girls via speaker-phone and through the aid of his personal assistant, John Bosley (David Doyle). Charlie sends the girls on various undercover missions and dangerous assignments where they apprehend criminals and pursue justice with a vengeance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Buy at Once! December 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Wow, all 20 some-odd episodes of the first season of Charlie's Angels! Undercover in prison ("Angels in Chains"), in roller derby ("Angels on Wheels), call girls ("Consenting Adults"), Kelly trying to kill Jill over Beamish ("The Seance"), all the really memorable early episodes are found right here on these discs. It's Farrah in all her glory, and boy was she smokin' hot! No ads either, they cut to the ad with the three-screen image coming together, and then you're right back to the show. Each episode lasts about 50 minutes, and you get a lot of episodes. There are like 5 discs and the individual cases are a little flimsy. There are no extras with any cast members or concerning the shows themselves. Who cares, though, you get each show in their entirety and the whole pilot also. Someone else was complaining about the transfer. It looked fine to me, no sound, image, or color problems that seems strange. I'm here to see the shows. You have the whole first season. For any fans, buy this set at once. It's a bargain at double the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah, to be an Angel.... August 10, 2004
Format:DVD
Fans of 1970s tv won't want to miss this great DVD of the campy series. Or perhaps not so campy; critics may have dismissed this is a "jiggle show" but it was one of the first to show strong female characters in an era when women were largely fluff on television. Angels Forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars GET THE REST OF THE SEASONS OUT!! March 4, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I remember being a teenager watching first run episodes of Charlie's Angels when I was growing up. This release of the entire season one brings back great memories for me.
Sure, the angels had sex appeal.....that's what sold the show. But the show itself is entertaining and fun to watch. The roles were solidly balanced and compared to the graphic violence on television today as well as sex, this show is like watching Romper Room in comparison.
The DVD set is nicely packaged in 5 discs but there aren't any worthwhile extras. The 'angels featurette' featuring fans talking about the show gives nice insight into the individual characters and I found it enjoyable but I could have done without the trailer for the movie remake. That was a waste. Better would have been interviews with the actresses who comprised the angels during the 5 year run.
I knew I was right when I selected Kelly as my favorite angel. Jaclyn Smith didn't let success go to her head like Farrah (my least favorite angel) and was known to be a wonderful, nice lady on the set compared to Kate Jackson (Sabrina) who garnered a reputation for being difficult. Smith has the distinction of being the ONLY angel to appear in every episode and last through the entire run on the series. She alone is worth buying the DVDs for as most of the episodes that have true meaning focus around her and I'm not writing this simply because she's my favorite. The best episodes are "The Seance", "Angels in Chains", "To Kill an Angel" and my personal favorite "Angels at Sea". The ending to that particular episode packed a wallop with all three girls superbly demonstrating their prowess as PIs.
The video and audio quality are superb. I don't have any complaints about my DVD set. Everything was great regarding that.
If you're a fan, you won't be disappointed. Now hurry up and get the rest of the seasons out there!!

Will there be a fourth season of Charlie's Angel's??
The show ran a total of five years. The last two seasons were not as strong as the first three because of the departure of Kate Jackson who it seems a lot of fans were not too fond of.
