ABC’s Charlie’s Angels Premieres Tonite! (& a Sephora Giveaway Valued at $100)

Charlie's Angels

{Giveaway is now closed. #41 is the lucky winner! It’s Sujeiry! Congrats!}

If you’re a child from the 70’s like I am, then you’ve seen the original show, Charlie’s Angels with Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith with their beautiful layered hair and their style of kicking ass.

I loved that show. Even as a little girl, I would pretend being one of the angels whenever I would watch it. Throwing high kicks with my skinny legs and landing on the sofa pretending I captured one of the bad guys. Yeah, I thought I was a bad-ass little girl but only when I would watch Charlie’s Angels. 😉

Fast forward to 2011 — Thirty-something years later and the beautiful Drew Barrymore is the executive producer of ABC’s newest shows, Charlie Angels, premiering tonite at 8|7c.  I have my DVR ready to record the whole series so I don’t miss a kick-ass moment!  I can’t wait!

Synopsis: Everyone deserves a second chance — even a thief, a street racer and a cop who got in a little too deep. After all, the three women who solve cases for their elusive boss, Charlie Townsend, are no saints. They’re angels… Charlie’s Angels.

Set in Miami, this fun, glamorous, action-packed take on the 1970s smash hit series introduces us to three new angels, all fearless detectives, head-turning beauties and close friends. There’s Abby (Rachael Taylor), a Park Avenue princess who became a world-class thief. Then there’s Kate (Annie Ilonzeh), a Miami cop who fell from grace, losing both her career and her fiancé. Finally there’s Gloria, a disgraced army lieutenant who has a way with explosives. When one of the angels’ missions ends in Gloria’s tragic death, Charlie persuades them to partner with Gloria’s childhood friend, Eve (Minka Kelly), a street racer with a mysterious past. They may not know each other yet, but one thing’s for sure — Abby, Kate and Eve will always have each others’ backs.

  1. I was a fan of the original show. I wish I were a Jaclyn, but I’m more of a Kate.

    Not a fan of the movies.

    I’ve seen some of the old shows recently and it did not hold up. Very dated!

  2. Yes, I was a fan of the original show and use to watch it weekly as a kid. I always thought I was like Jaclyn Smith or wanted to at least be like her – she was glamorous and smart.

  3. I used to love Charlie’s Angels, but actually was a fan of Cheryl Ladd more than the other angels, probably because although she looked very delicate she could hold her own. Jaclyn Smith was my second favorite.
    The first movie was super entertaining but I still prefer the series. I though Cameron Diaz was very funny.

  5. I loved the original show, I used to watch it everyday when I was little. My favorite Angel was Jaclyn Smith, she was so smart and sassy. I liked the movie, but the show was much better.

  6. I don’t think I ever missed a “Charlie’s Angels episode on tv.
    Most definitely, I am like the character played by Kate Jackson…
    Down to earth, take charge and keep the others, grounded!
    This is one fabulous Sephora Giveaway!
    Many thanks, Cindi

  7. I liked the movie and the original show. I would like to be like Jaclyn because she is intelligent and smart

    I was definitely a fan of the original show and I guess I’d be more like Jaclyn Smith’s character. Or should I say just Jaclyn Smith, because I still adore her and watch her whenever she’s in made for tv movies etc.

  15. I’m a big fan of the original show, you can’t replicate a classic. Sometimes you lose a part of it with remakes! I’m more like Farrah Fawcett, outspoken, knows what she wants. Thanks for the chance, great giveaway! 🙂

  16. I’m a fan of the movie! I’m most like Lucy Lui because we are both focused.

  17. I liked Jaclyn Smith from the tv show and Drew Barrymore from the movies.


  18. The movie was fun to watch but I like the show better. Classic’s never died. Cameron Diaz is really funny, love her.

  20. I remember Charlies Angels when I was younger but didn’t watch regularly. I do own the movies on DVD and LOVE them. Which angel am I most like? It have to be Drew’s character. She was fun and feisty but had a lovable, warm spirit about her without being gullible like Cameron’s character, just like me!

  37. girl! who didn’t watch Charlie’s Angels?!?!??! Child of the 70s for sure. The feathered hair which few have successfully mastered! So my Angel would be Jaclyn—- sassy, intellectual, smart. In the new movie, I liked Drew–always been a fan of her work and looking forward to the series! Tweeting the giveaway at 10 am 😉 from @BrenHerrera

  38. Forgot to tell you that I tweeted it!

  39. Gioanny Polanco says:

    I did watch CA back in the day (sounds long ago) and I tuned in weekly! I loved Jaclyn Smith and I feel that I related to her character the most. Visually, she emboided a “latina-esque” persona.

    I believe that the movies did not do the show justice and am looking forward for the new season to pay good homage to the original lovely ladies.

  40. I’m not a fan of the movies/show, I have not seen them & I’m more like Abby just because she sounds more like me than the others.

  41. I follow @NewYorkChica on Twitter as @calidreamin87 & I tweeted:!/calidreamin87/status/118729076352630784

  42. I wasn’t born yet when the original show was on, but I was a big fan of the movie. I really liked the movie because it was fun and the girls were so cool!

  43. I follow you on twitter and tweeted:!/egood33/status/118763942158942209

  44. LOVED it<3!!! Jacklin Smith:)!!! THANK YOU:)

  45. I love both. I remember seeing episodes as a child and I like watching the movie too. I think I would want to be an angel like Drew Barrymore.
