So who else picked this up?
i wasn't too excited at first, since like a few other people here i was always more partial to the Kris episodes, but for $36 i figured why not.
watched the pilot and first episode along with the Angels Forever featurette and now i can say i'm really glad i picked this up
for anyone who used to be (or still is *shudder...gasp*) a fan of the show, the pilot is fascinating stuff.
the real hoot was the Forever featurette.
while the 'fans' interviewed were already starting to get on my nerves by the time the thing was over at the 20 minute mark, the irreverant nature and editing of the piece had me grinning ear to ear the whole time.
its so refreshing to see a supplement that makes no bones about the 'quality' of the actual property.
CA gets affectionatley pegged from all corners for exactly what it was.
it should tell you something, that the first real topic of the featurette is the issue of Farrahs nipples.
i kid you not.
no, this still isn't the kind of release that makes me so thankful for the medium, but i can see i will enjoy spinning an episode now and then a lot more than i had expected to...keeping an MST3K vibe in mind.
i really hope we will see at least the second season when the sequel hits dvd.
i was fully expecting the film to flop this summer but now i suppose i should be rooting for it to succeed, just to get set 2.
Angels In Paradise, Angels On Ice, Circus Angels...Cheryl Ladd in a bikini, Jacyln Smith belly-dancing...those are the eps i really want.
i hope we don't have to wait for Charlies Angels 3 for it.
BTW quality of the material i've seen so far doesn't look too bad, but i'm guessing the discs were made from the original videotape and not from the original film.
wonder if the film material even still exists at this point.
