The Angels Learn Just How Dangerous the Job Is on 'Charlie's Angels' (VIDEO)

'Charlie's Angels' series premiereWell, if the creators wanted the fate of Gloria to be any sort of surprise for the viewers of this 'Charlie's Angels' (Thu., 8PM ET on ABC) series premiere, they should have handled things a lot differently in the promotion of the remake.

Imagine the shock we could have had in seeing one of the Angels die in the very first episode. Now, that's exactly what happened, but it was Nadine Velazquez instead of one of the three women we've seen everywhere promoting the show.

When the episode began and Minka Kelly wasn't in the trio of ladies saving the day, we knew Gloria's days were numbered. But ABC could have had a much bigger reaction if they'd pretended Velazquez was a cast member all along, even giving her lead billing in this premiere rather than seeing her name tacked on as a guest star.

Granted, a better surprise wouldn't have made for a better pilot, and this one was a bit of a trainwreck. From sub-par acting to terrible writing, this was more than just a throwback to the simpler times of 1970s action dramas. It was a disappointment in any era.

What did you think of the new 'Charlie's Angels?'

It was awful, unfortunately. Bad mistake to spend all that money on a remake that just can't be remade

One more reason why I've cancelled my cable television and am happy with Netflix and the internet...too much garbage on TV.

NO MORE REMAKES...

It's time for us to awaken from our slumber (and reality television) and demand that we have the chance to view original shows of decent quality. Otherwise, what will we view 20 years from now if we're watching TV shows from our youth :(? Cable and British TV shouldn't be the only venues for original programming...

It's time to wake up from our slumber (and reality television) and return to quality FREE TV that doesn't have to be on cable (or British) in order for it to be original ;).
