Review - Charlie's Angels Season 1 Episode 1 Pilot

I don't remember the last time I saw an episode of television as shitty as the pilot of Charlie's Angels. It's so ridiculously bad that it makes Whitney, another pile of garbage, look like Community. It's not fun, it's not funny, it's not campy, it's not exciting, it's not well-acted, it's not logical, it's not entertaining, it's not exciting. It has nothing worth seeing. Heck, even the women, probably the only reason why someone would want to watch the show, are tamely dressed. You'd think the producers would slap them in string bikinis for sex appeal, but that never happens.

So if this show doesn't have any of the aforementioned items, what does it have? The writers try to make the show dark and gritty by throwing in backstory, but it doesn't work, especially because Minka Kelly telling a generic story begins to sound not only boring but also stupid. The major problems are solved by the end of the episode, so the promise of an ongoing plot is gone.

OK, one positive thing (earning the 0.5) Rachael Taylor's acting is about on par with the rest of the television landscape, meaning she isn't actively bad or too boring. I guess that's something.

Score: 0.5/10
