TV reviews: 'Charlie's Angels' and 'Prime Suspect'

The updated 'Charlie's Angels' and 'Prime Suspect' aren't groundbreaking shows like their originals. Instead, 'Angels' gives the trio murky pasts and a new locale (Miami), while 'Suspect' moves from Scotland Yard to New York, and the cast is terrific.

As wildly different as they were in execution, the originals of "Prime Suspect" and "Charlie's Angels" were, thematically, sisters of the same revolution. Although best known for flaunting the beauty of its shapely stars, "Charlie's Angels," which ABC launched in 1976, openly refuted the then-still-popular notion that women were the weaker sex.
