The Charlie's Angels Casebook
Book: The Charlie's Angels Casebook
Written by: David Hofstede Jack Condon
Publisher: Pomegranate Press (CA)
Average Customer Rating: 5.0 / 5

gimme a break
Rating: 1 / 5
Ok I love Charlies angels as much as the next... but this book is lame. Just as I watched each week enjoying yet hoping the plots would get better this book is the same. Just reading and waiting for it to get better.
Basically there is nothing you havent heard before. I would sell my copy for a buck plus shipping.

Complete and fun reference book
Rating: 5 / 5
This is such a fun book! Lots of rare photos of all cast members. I really enjoyed the stories and anecdotes from all the personal interviews with the different cast members. This book obviously took lots of time and effort to compile.
I was won over in the first few pages where proper hommage is paid to the Angels' predecessors in female crime-fighting : Anne Francis as Honey West and Diana Rigg as Emma Peel. Charlie's Angels was perhaps ground-breaking but these 2 women broke the ground for the Angels in the previous decade. After this bit of history, it was evident that the author really knows his subject matter.
Just tons of fun facts in this book! Nice filmographies of each cast member and a very cool reference section on all the merchandise created for the show.
There is also a review of each episode of the show. This may be my favorite part as the author points out various bloopers or script inconsistencies that make the show all the more endearing. I didn't know that Rossano Brazzi was an Olympic athelete! The only drawback about his book is that it's so much fun to read that it leaves you wanting more! Thanks for a job well-done Jack!

A fitting tribute to the quintessential seventies show
Rating: 5 / 5
This is such a fun and informative book that takes the show seriously enough to give it its due, and still point out its flaws and limitations. I think their work on the show and on later projects has shown that these were actresses who could have handled meatier storylines and better scripts. Growing up in the 70s, I loved "Charlie's Angels"--I recall that Kris (Cheryl Ladd) was my favorite, and I believe I started watching it in the 2nd or 3rd season. I remember my twin sister and I LOVED the trucking Angels episode, so we definitely watched the Shelly Hack season, but I think we quit when Tanya Roberts joined--I was bothered then (and still kinda am) that she wasn't an ex-cop, like the others, I thought that was integral to the show.

Whenever people talk about the show being sexist, I always tell them that Charlie's Angels was the one action show we could "play" as kids where my sisters and friends could run around wielding "guns" and catching bad guys and "driving" fast cars--and not have to pretend we were boys. I highly recommend this book for any fan of the show, or anyone interested in television production in general.
