From Amazon.co.uk

Back in the late 1970s Charlie's Angels was wildly popular television at its most self-consciously banal. The jiggly, joggly jolly first series' three (and best-remembered) belles--lioness Farrah Fawcett (then Farrah Fawcett-Majors), pin-up babe Jaclyn Smith and thinking man's beauty Kate Jackson--were something like primetime Spice Girls, gracing countless magazine covers and bestselling posters. The idea (even if a fan of the show didn't happen to be a straight male) was that one was compelled to choose a favourite angel as a kind of ink-blot window into one's subconscious life.

While the 2000 Angels feature film kept faith with the original show's self-mockingly sloppy storytelling, there's nothing like seeing the old episodes for a lesson in narrative hubris. Basically, the three leading characters were bored policewomen wooed away to a private firm owned and operated by the unseen sybarite, Charlie (voiced--over speakerphone--by an uncredited John Forsythe). After a long set-up each week, the girls' investigations typically saw them going undercover as fashion models--no great stretch--in "Night of the Strangler", nurses in "Terror on Ward One", roller-derby stars in "Angels on Wheels" and vulnerable convicts (of course) in "Angels in Chains". The exploitation factor is not as bad as it might have been. The cast was so glamorous, their chemistry so perfect, that Charlie's Angels never became a mere meat market. Despite such nods to modernity as Fawcett's no-bra look, the episodes were old-fashioned in their heroine-in-peril appeal, yet there was a difference: the Angels looked out for themselves and each other. --Tom Keogh

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 29 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
The title of the DVD and lack of clear information in the Amazon listing may lead you to think you are getting the full Series 1 on this DVD, whereas, in actual fact you only get 2 episodes and the glossy but lightweight featurette "Talent Files". Save your money and buy the 5 disc Charlies Angels Series 1 DVD (which appears in Amazon's most popular choices for Charlie's Angels) and get the full 22 episodes(I must admit, I hadn't realised there were so many episodes in the first series)plus the pilot episide and the much better more in-depth featurette "Angels Forever". After all, when you compare this disc at full price (9.99=p&p) and the 5 disc version , there really is no choice.

I agree with the previous review. I love this series and since this was a December 2005 release I thought it was something diffferent. I already own the entire Series 1 and 2 (USA region 1) I thought this was the Region 2 version. Its not even the pilot. Its 2 random episodes: To Kill an Angel and Night of the Strangler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD Set ! 11 Sep 2003
Format:DVD
"Charlie's Angels" fans had to wait a long time for this great DVD set - but it was worth waiting for it ! All 22 episodes of the first season plus the pilot movie on five dics, all in clear quality (and by the way, it was working on my DVD player !). Just lean back and enjoy your journey back to the seventies with the orignal angels, the faboulous Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith and Farrah Fawcett. This is much better than the remake ! Only minus: Why there are no releases of the other "Charlie's Angels", starring Cheryl Ladd ???

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning - only 2 episodes - what a rip-off! 27 April 2010
Format:DVD
I really expected to buy the full first series,
not only two episodes.
The price was cheap, but not unusually cheap compared
to similar tv shows from the same time.
The "Original TV Series" label on the DVD box is
misleading and amazon lists this as "Series 1".

I didn't recognize anything unusual until I
opened the box and only found one DVD.

This is not even a best of, this is a rip-off.

Format:DVD
I remember watching the first series when I was 10 years old and loved it. Sabrina was always my favourite - foxy chick with balls and brains! Can you imagine little girls wanting to play with toy guns in the 70s? When this series appeared they certainly did! Watching it again I think it has aged very well. Yes, it's typically 70s and the music and clothes are just so 70s it's untrue, but I think that's what's so great about it.

One small criticism is in the marketing. As a previous reviewer wrote, this is not compatible with UK Region 2, even though it states that it is. I'm quite fortunate as my DVD plays only Region 2 but my pc is set up to play Region 1 so I had no problems playing these DVDs. It is unfair though to market these in the UK as UK-compatible only for people to find that they may not be able to play the discs. Why is this? There is a London address on the side of the outside jacket so I don't understand why this has happened if these DVDs were manufactured in the UK or Europe. A serious error that could spoil peoples enjoyment.

For those lucky enough to have multiple-region players or PCs that can play these discs, sit back and enjoy some nostalgic moments from yester-year. I refuse to see the recent film of Charlie's Angels or indeed Starsky and Hutch because I just don't think you can beat these originals - they're classics. So tip your hat to Sabrina, Kelly, Jill and Bosley (RIP the latter two) and remember just how great the 70s were.
