But Will There Be a Role for Cameron Diaz?

Original Charlie's Angels To Reteam For New Film? - Starpulse News Blog: "The original Charlie's Angels are considering reprising their beloved TV characters for an ambitious new movie. Cancer survivor Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson have been approached to revisit the crime-busting characters they played on TV in the 1970s.

Smith reveals, 'There's been talk of all of us coming back and doing a movie together... If the script was right and we had it all worked out it'd be fun. It's sometimes hard to revisit the past but, if you do it in the proper way, it's OK.'"

Hear, hear! I like the new franchise, but who could beat the original "Angels"?

I like the originals best, too, but I'm not sure I'm ready to see them back in action. Let the Depends jokes begin.

Hey, Kate is also a cancer survivor! A little respect, people.

Hey guys, is it just me or has Kate gotten better looking the older we've both grown? I never really cared for her when Charlie's Angels started (although I never really got the Farrah fixation either - with me it was all Jacklyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd), but I saw Kate Jackson on the CBS series Criminal Minds the other night and I have to say, she's a fine looking woman.

Bill Crider said...

I have to admit I always liked her. The others were flashier, but she had something that appealed to me.

Benjie said...

They let her have a brain. I saw that Criminal Minds episode, and must agree Kate keeps on getting better. I never was a Farrah fanatic, but I had a thing for Jaqueline Smith when I was in Jr. High.

Maybe I liked the brainy bit.

Jackson darn cute on THE ROOKIES, which even as a lad I found more watchable than CA, despite the flesh on display. Though I did croggle at the perversity of CA, particularly (aside from the jiggle) little details like one teaser with thug enforcers brandishing nutcrackers as they grabbed at their struggling victim's pants and belt...this would be post-BORN INNOCENT, after all, and they cut away quickly. The '70s in several ways the worst decade for television.

Or the best if you have low taste.

Much that was brilliant in the 1970s, but the bad was indeed spectacularly bad. And so much of the worst of the previous decades hung around to haunt us so blatantly...I note that TV One, one of the African-American-interest cable stations, has racked up its best numbers so far by repeating ROOTS, one of the brighter spots in the '70s. PBS did some amazing stuff, and CBS had good things in their Lear/Yorkin and MTM productions, and the early MASH, particularly, there were some pretty decent syndicated shows and ABC even managed BARNEY MILLER (and the fun first season of the Carter WONDER WOMAN) and NBC SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, but...wow. There was All That Other Stuff...

You know, there was some good stuff. And some really bad, of course.

That was the era of those grindhouse movies, too.
