    Does the CHARLIE'S ANGELS season one set contain the original 90 min pilot movie, or does it start with the first hour long episode?

    Did the movie ever get edited down to fit in an hour slot in reruns? Or even expanded with deleted footage to make two hour long shows? This was done with some early SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN movies).

    I've got the original 90 min version taped from local TV; so I know it was still in circulation circa 1990 when I recorded it.

    What's the scoop? Is the original movie missing?

    several reviews have commented that it does, although it seems to be the roughest looking of all the material.
    if it weren't the inclusion of the pilot, which i havent seen since i was a little little tyke in '76, i doubt i would be picking this up.

    Hmmmmmm. I just tried it again and it worked for me. Anyway, there was a lot of discussion surrounding what is going to be on the set. Dave Lambert put up screen shots of the dvd cover and back. You can also try doing a search for Charlie's Angels in the Software section and try and find it that way.

    it came up this time.
    don't know why it didn't before.

    dvdfile and dvdauthority both have a review of the set up.
    PQ seems to be ok (considering they are squeezing 5 eps on each disc).

    Great, but can anyone confirm it is the full length version as aired in a 90 min slot on ABC? All reviews mention the "pilot episode" which leaves doubt as to whether or not it is the movie version or not. The pilot should run about 74 mins, that is how long my TV print is.

    Hopefully, all is well and the uncut version is there.
