    Get Christie Love!

    Remember the convo in RESERVOIR DOGS about who was in the TV movie GET CHRISTIE LOVE! (1974), Pam Grier or Teresa Graves?

    Well, I've just watched GET CHRISTIE LOVE! and while it's been available on various cheap PD DVDs for years I still haven't been able to find the full series. The series only ran for one season (pilot + 22 episodes). Today, I've learnt (from Wiki) that the series was rerun on a channel called Centric in 2014. Do any of you know if there's any way to get the full series? Did anybody tape it? There's ONE seller on iOffer who has 15 episodes but, uh, 15 episodes isn't 22 episodes and I'd rather have the full show if it's possible. Any bootleggers who have it that I'm not aware of?

    Btw, the pilot is by no means a brilliant film. Or even all that good. Maybe it's not even good. The dialogue during the first 20 minutes was so awful it was like watching a crappy porn flick (not even a good porn flick!). The acting ditto. But, hey, I'd still like to watch the full series.

    PS: apparently there's a reboot on its way.

    Hmm, interesting. I've just stumbled over something quite obscure; It's well known that Teresa Graves who played Christie Love became a Jehovah's Witness and then left film making. Here's a blog post by (what I reckon is) a Jehovah's Witness who has reposted an article that Teresa Graves wrote for their magazine "Awake" in 1977. She talks quite a bit about how she found God etc. but also about being in movies and fulfilling her obligations to the series even after having joined the cult.

    Nice find.

    Also I have no help to offer on your search for the TV material but if you uncover anything, let us know.

    There's someone on iOffer selling a bootleg with 15 episodes, if this is urgent.

    Thanks, Marshall. That's the guy I mentioned in my initial post. I'd rather wait and see if there's someone who has them all in order not to double dip with bootlegs.

    That'll teach me to skim.

    Haha. No worries. If we've learnt one thing from the internet it's to skim everything.
