Some classics — even the cheesiest ones — are better left in the past, and Charlie’s Angels, it seems, is no exception: ABC is shutting down production the reboot from Smallville scribes Al Gough and Miles Millar.

More space on my DVR… I’d already killed “Pan Am” as cheesy relationship drama. Maybe I’ll watch some Ted Danson CSI episodes.

retro tv (Pan Am, Charlie’ Angels, The Playboy Club) is this year’s trendlet/programming #fail. Let’s see, 2 Broke Girls, Whitney and New Girl are the break-out hits this year so far, so next year, we’ll have three dozen clones of these on offer.

    Charlie’s Angles was more in the Hawaii 5″O” reboot rather than retro. “Pan AM” and “The Playboy Club” were attempts at bringing “Mad Men” to broadcast. It seems that “cable shows” don’t do well on broadcast. HBO pulled “Entourage” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” from syndication due to low ratings. I have a feeling that “It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia” will suffer the same fate. Too artsy and unfunny for anyone to really care. Of course “Reno 911″… now that was funny!

this is sad news… the new angels had a lot of buzz on facebook… I enjoyed the show myself, much better than 2 Broke Girls. I guess the article I read about dumbing down America is true!!!

It is so sad to see original thinkers gone from the scene, why all the remakes, lets make some new and great shows without all the gay bastards or defective people in them. Good wholesome programming from original thinkers, how refreshing would that be.

    Fred Allen, 1949 “Television is the sincerest form of imitation.”

    oops, I revesed that it’s imitation is the sincerest form of television. So, it’s not a new sentiment about original thinkers in television.
