- "I Will Be Remembered." Ida Lupino guest stars as a faded film star from Hollywood's Golden Age.
"Angels in Chains." Classic women in prison story with a dykey prison matron.
"Angels at Sea." The Angels go up against Frank "The Riddle" Gorshin who has planted three bombs on a cruise ship. It works for two reasons: Gorshin gives a hell of a performance, and there's a great scene where the Angels diffuse the bombs. It's completely ludicrous even by the show's standards, but it works because the Angels are committed to it.
"To Kill an Angel." Camp classic where Kelly befriends an autistic boy who accidentally shoots her.
The Voice of the Night
- I was always a fan of the one about Kelly's abusive nanny, Bemish. Loved when she was hypnotized into believing Jill was Bemish in disguise and almost killed her. Campy delight!
- Beemish! Holy fuck, that episode was scarier than Phantasm.
Most heart breaking was a two-parter where Kate Jackson may or may not be blown up in a terrible explosion for the cliff hanger. I was nervous for a week that she would die!
- The serial killer that buried women in the sand, leaving a hand or a foot sticking out scared the bejeebus out of me.
- Thanks, all! These sound great. Kelly & the autistic boy sounds vaguely familiar - did they go to an amusement park?
- Wasn't there an episode where they all had to go to big rig trucker school? I remember watching that and wanting to be a trucker after that.
Angels in Chains is such a classic.
- One from the Tanya Roberts season has the Angels investigating a murder at one of those singles bars with telephones on the tables. I won't spoil the big twist but I sure wouldn't want Jaclyn Smith investigating my murder if she could be so easily fooled.
- There's only one best episode of Charlie's Angels: Angels in Chains.
- OP I tried the link and it said it couldn't open it in my country. I'm in the US, did you post from another country?
- the Shelly Hack ones of course
- Shelly Hack? Tanya Roberts?! Some of you spent the 70s and 80s in a drugged up stupor! Those two marked the worst of Charlie's Angels.
- Shelly Hack is a DL icon.
- The show jumped the shark with Shelley Hack.
- 'Angels in Chains' (Season 1, 1976): THE classic!
'Consenting Adults (Season 1, 1976): Farrah on a skateboard!
'The Seance' (Season 1, 1976): Beamish!
'I Will Be Remembered' (Season 1, 1977)
'Angels in Paradise' (Season 2, 1977): Two-parter that introduces Cheryl Ladd.
'The Sandcastle Murders' (Season 2, 1978)
'Angels in Springtime' (Season 3, 1978)
'Haunted Angels' (Season 3, 1978)
'Counterfeit Angels' (Season 3, 1979)
'Angels Go Truckin' (Season 4, 1979)
'Fallen Angel' (Season 4, 1979): The best of the return of Farrah episodes.
'Angel Hunt' (Season 4, 1979)
'Of Ghosts and Angels' (Season 4, 1980)
- Shelly HACK's best performance is a 2 second cameo in "Annie Hall." Small doses go a long way.
- The Hawaii episodes.
- Loved the two-part episode in which Kelly and Kris fought over Patrick Duffy.
- Shelly was pretty good in The King of Comedy.
- I like the one from season 4 where Kris goes to jail, there's a fumigation scene, a big dyke who gets interested in her.
There are a lot of "solo" episodes during this season, where one Angel does a lot of the work and the other two are incidental.
Also the one with the attempted murder-by-herbal-wrap that takes place at a spa, with Mercedes McCambridge.
Watch Shelley Hack as a streetwalker!
The Kim Cattral guest star one is fun, as is the one where Kelly gets strung out on heroin.
Also it's worth watching at least one of the handful episodes where Sabrina and Kris have to team up, knowing the backstory that Jackson couldn't stand Ladd. Pretty much they were able to work around this, with Sabrina-Bosley + Kris-Kelly pairings, or Sabrina-Kelly + Kris-Bosley (Ladd loved Doyle almost like a surrogate father). To their credit, there is a poignant moment when Kris shoots someone dead for the first time and Sabrina comforts her.
As soft as it is, sometimes the show will be violent in a way that is completely unexpected; you snap out of the viewing coma and think, "well, you'd never see that on tv today."
You'll notice how badly staged a lot of the special effects are (speeding up the film to make cars go faster) and how cheap or low tech some things are done. Cars explode at the slightest provocation. Sometimes the Angels are helpless women in distress and then suddenly they flatten a towering athletic man with one karate chop--sometimes in the same episode!
You'll tire of seeing the swing set that's reconfigured and redressed over and over again: the one with the little kitchen with cabinets and counter and bar on the upstage wall.
Also, you'll pray that Allah will save you from ever having to hear another original song written by the series writers (who must have been frustrated songwriters--always cramming their dog songs into episodes).
Most glaringly, time has not been kind to the detection and undercover methods--most of their covers would be blown with a simple Google search today. And they're never shy about appearing together in public even though their "covers" wouldn't likely know each other.
Where's Season 5 on DVD? That's the real question.
- Loved that episode where Kelly wnet undercover as a pregnant woman; Sabrina played a woman who wanted a baby and Bosley was her husband. Sabrina smoked and she was such a BITCH ("I want that baby, John. See that I get it.) that the crooks were horrified.
There was a nice moment in which Sabrina comforted Kris after she shot someone; I think Jackson is brilliant (still imagine her in the Streep role in Kramer.)
But I think Jackson's dislike, anger, whatever was misplaced. She should have been pissed at Farrah for leaving.
The show got better with Ladd, I thought.
I liked the Angel in Love episode in which Jackson fell for Peter Haskell, a sky jacker.
- oh, duh, also: THE PILOT!
That was excellent.
Tommy Lee Jones!
Twists, turns... those smoothies in the beginning.
Jackson was originally going to play Kelly, which is why we see so much of Smith in the early part of the pilot.
Farrah, God Bless, never had a handle on who Jill was. She was brilliant in the Burning Bed, but she was simply horrific on CA.
Jackson, meanwhile, got two Emmy nods for playing Sabrina.
- Angels in Chains mini episode. Great stuff!
Forgot Kim Basinger was in it.
- Who can forget "Death on Wheels" where Farrah has to be the roller derby bully?
- [quote]Where's Season 5 on DVD? That's the real question.
It's available on iTunes.
[quote]These sound great. Kelly & the autistic boy sounds vaguely familiar - did they go to an amusement park?
Yes. She takes him to an amusement park, two killers ditch a gun near him, and he shoots her in the head. Make your own joke about that one.
The Voice of the Night
- Another vote for Angels in Chains. It's got it all.
- How can this thread have gone so long without a mention of Toni's Boys - Stephen Shortridge, Bruce Bauer, Bob Seagren.
- Agree that Angels in Chains is the best. ABC repeated it 3 TIMES that year and it was top 10 every time. Hard to believe.
The lesbian dialogue is priceless-
"I've got my eye on you, sweet cheeks".
"I can fit you better than any tailor just by LOOKING at you".
"When was the last time you were sprayed?"
Smutty innuendo about Kim Basinger's nipples closes out the episode!
I also like Hellride (Bosley at his best) and Consenting Adults.
Sorry (R1) but I think Angels at Sea is the worst. Diffusing that bomb is a snoozefest and Frank Gorshin is as annoying as ever.
The laughable shot of the bomb exploding a mile away after the Angels throw it overboard is fun, though!
- You bitches forgot Jamie Lee Curtis' portrayal of a pro golfer in danger!
- I remember a late series episode about bodybuilders. I just wanted to see it for the men in their posing briefs.
- Thanks for these great reminders. Does anyone else find the show's theme music oddly moving? I guess it just takes me back to a nice place in my childhood. I should probably be too embarrassed to ask this.
- I don't know if I'd call it moving but as a kid I loved the strategically placed explosions.
- [quote]Thanks for these great reminders. Does anyone else find the show's theme music oddly moving? I guess it just takes me back to a nice place in my childhood. I should probably be too embarrassed to ask this.
Don't be. It predates my childhood by a year, and I still love it.
When Farrah, Kate, and Jaclyn did their tribute to Aaron Spelling at the Emmys in 2006, they were played on with it, and it was the best moment of the ceremony.
The Voice of the Night
- [quote]Most glaringly, time has not been kind to the detection and undercover methods--most of their covers would be blown with a simple Google search today
Oh, come on. No one would see through Kelly's faultless disguises of an exaggerated version of her Texas twang and/or glasses.
Also, "Dancing in the Dark" where Kelly was a disco-dance instructor (because I guess that was a thing in the seventies), and Bri was an Asperger's-suffering heiress taking dance lessons.
The Voice of the Night
- Kris was my favorite.
- There was a disco episode I found very hilarious... just watching these old people dance like that
- "Angels In Chains" is great. The male guard was one of those creepy casting choices that couldn't be made today. Towards the end, he tells Kelly that he's sorry he has to kill her before he had his way with her.
The episode with the autistic kid was one of those recycled Aaron Spelling scripts. It was done on "Mod Squad" with Peggy Lipton in the Jaclyn Smith role.
- R32, that's a great clip. However, after it aired, it was rumoured (strongly) that Kate made a scene backstage about wanting to go on with her position in the middle and be the one to speak first. She did both. She also made her speech more about her (Aaron told me, "Katie, you have stardust in your eyes.") than about the man she was there to honour. All of this kind of soured me on her even more as I'm aware of the ego trips she's pulled over the years.
I like the way that Farrah decided to showcase her chest. She made the other 2 look matronly.
- I like the episode where the Angels infiltrate and get jobs at a small circus...
The episode called Teen Angels features one of the Landers sisters. She is the head mean girl at an all girls boarding school and pulls a huge strand of Kris's hair in art class.
I also like the episode where these female criminals that look like the Angels commit crimes.." Counterfeit Angels"
- Cheryl and Jaclyn in 2010. Both look great, but Cheryl looks 35.
- What was the one at a race track? Farrah played a preachers daughter and Bosley was her daddy.
- The first two episodes I thought of were "Angels in Chains." and "Angels at Sea". these are classic Angels episodes as well as classic 70s television at its very best!
- Does anyone remember Toni's Boys, which was to be a spin off. It featured Barbara Stanwyck and 3 hunky male investigators. They worked a case with the Angels (Shelly Hack era). The script is for sale on ebay.
- How about the episode where Cheryl befriends me and then steals my husband...?1
- R27 don't forget to add the evil female guard watching them shower then making them take off their robes while she ogled the Angels' naked bodies and sprayed them down with some sort of disinfectant.
- I also find the music oddly comforting. It brings back in an immediate way how the culture was right before the Reagan era. More open, more campy, more fun.
- Those were good times.
- The episodes mentioned on this thread were all classics. I loved them. I especially loved the one that was about diamond thieves or something that had Farrah riding her skateboard trying to escape. All the kids in the neighborhood were trying to ride their skateboard like she did after that. Ah, memories!
- Farrah on the skateboard....!!!!!
- R37, I agree that Kate has her issues, but I thought her speech to Aaron wasn't ALL about her.
There were poignant moments to it.
Plus, she should have gone first; she'd worked for him on the Rookies, too.
Farrah quit after a year.
Maybe Jaclyn could have gone first, but Kate's the best speaker.
- All of the best episodes have been mentioned already, but I'd like to include my favorite from the Shelly Hack era. It was set in a Roller Disco palace (Flippers!!!) with Rene Auberjenois as the main villain and Cheryl was undercover as a roller disco contestant! Plus, Jaclyn and Shelly played "reporters" doing a story for "Roller Disco Magazine"!
- Thanks, R49. That was a good laugh. You could really notice the film speeding up to increase the speed of the chase.
- Any that included Dennis Cole as a guest star. He was dreamy.
- Wasn't Jacklyn Smith involved with Dennis Cole? Even more important question: Why do I remember this obscure bit of '70s trivia?
- [quote]Also, "Dancing in the Dark" where Kelly was a disco-dance instructor (because I guess that was a thing in the seventies), and Bri was an Asperger's-suffering heiress taking dance lessons.
Kate was hilarious in that one.
- Yeah I got beat to Toni's Boys. Damn. I loved the Shelly Hack episodes. Especially when she was being hunted in Mexico. But yeah I'm curious just how did Shelly Hack become a DL icon? She has one of the strangest careers. No one in Hollywood has been given more chances for a hit than her. I want to know who she was fucking. I mean did SHE abort Warren Beatty's love child?
Now someone start a Bionic Woman thread because I know the life of Jaime Sommers inside and out.
- There was one where they were in a Vegas-style show where they sang some god-awful number entitled "Pals, Buddies, and Friends". It was so awful. I LOVED IT!!!
- [quote] Maybe Jaclyn could have gone first, but Kate's the best speaker.
"Dear Aaron is in heaven now. With Bootsie Gumdrops, my first cat I got from the shelter. Thank you."
- Yes, R58. That's JUST what she said.
- Thanks R49!
- Jaclyn was married to Dennis Cole. Before he began working steadily as an actor, he was a AMG model.
- I forgot about Bootsie Gumdrops. Has anyone checked Jackie's Twitter lately?
- Why did they almost always, without fail, use their real names on cases? I always found that to be absurd.
- What was the name of the one where Elaine Joyce (Match Game, Mrs. Neil Simon) played the villan?
- Angels in Sprintime. Best. Episode. Ever.
Could only find parts 3-5 on Youtube but check it out!
- And here's the crib notes version...
- "Angels in Vegas" their crossover with Vega$. Most notable for guest star Dean Martin and the even-more-funky special version of the theme.
The Voice of the Night
- It wasn't just Angels in Chains, was it?
The show was a phenomenon; despite how frustrated Kate was in the scripts there were some nice relationships and dynamics on the show, not the least of which was the Angels feelings towards lovable Bosley.
- I can't believe nobody has mentioned the Episode about the transvestite killer Margot! She befriended Kelly and played a double roll on the show. There was also that amazing episode where Cheryl Ladd played a porn actress. I loved her sideswept curls.
- The one where the Angels walk around in skimpy outfits and catch the bad guy
- R69, see r7.
- Wait. So Kelly got shot in the head twice during the series? By the austic kid and in one of the Tanya Roberts episodes.
- I liked the one where the bad guys got Kelly hooked on heroin. Apparently heroin makes one's hair frizzy and uncontrollable. The More You Know.
- One of my favorite episodes was "Angels on the Line" from their final season. Kelly get stalked by a transvestite who runs a nightclub called "The Hotline Club." I'm so glad that season 5 is finally coming to DVD so I can see this again.
- Did anyone watch Toni's Boys?
Was it good?
Were they butch?
- What was the best season?
- I can't believe Amazon is charging almost $40 for season 5.
- I see 34.95. Did they recently release season 5. The other seasons are 12 bucks or so,
- I guess the price came doen a bit. It was released this month as MOD.
- I love the season 4 episode where they go undercover at Tiffany's alma mater to expose a white slavery ring led by Gary Collins and Jo Ann Plug. It must've been one of the early season 4 eps, since Shelley was pretty prominent. As the season went along and it was obvious she wasn't working out, her screen time was severely reduced.
- R80, I read Gary Collins as Gary Coleman and lost it!
- I was such a little queen growing up, I was fascinated by their changing hair styles. I remember being obsessed with the Hack season opening credits in which Hack has frizzy hair in one shot, and totally straight hair in another.
- R80 Some of those Shelly Hack episodes are hard to watch. She was a beautiful model, but a terrible actress.
- Trying out to be lifeguards
- R82 - what specific changes happened with their hairstyles?
- Looking back, maybe it was just Shelley Hack's hair that I was obsessed with. It seemed to change every episode, which was reflected in the opening credits.
- R87 - I can't tell any significant differences in the looks of Jaclyn or Cheryl throughout the series.
- Sometimes Jaclyn had big fluffy hair, sometimes it was straight, and sometimes it was heroin-frizzy.
- Jackie's hair got noticeably shorter around season 2 and 3, and would altenate between a teased/swept-back look and bangs. Her changing hairstyles are reflected in the season 4 and 5 credits, when they finally updated their shots.
- Tiffany homage.
- Cheesy old-fashioned show. I saw a few episodes on TV and thought they were lame-o. Bad acting and horrible scripts. Guess I'm too young to "get" the appeal.
- You're too young R91
- Loved the episode where Kris goes undercover with the worst scandavian accent ever. I yust love that yade!
- I loved the episode where Kelly was terrorized by a transvestite.
- Which episode is that R94?
- R95 The epsiode was "Angels on the Line" from Season 5.
- Thanks R96. I barely recall season 5.
- I can't tell you the title (or season) but I recall one that had a sad ending but I remember as being good.
It had to do with a murdered (?) country music singer.
- R98 Was that the episode Cheryl Ladd sang on?
- What ever one was where they were on the loveboat.
- Some channel called Universal HD shows Charlies Angels and TJ Hooker and it's impressive how good they look today.
- Here's Kelly vs Margot. Margot does an extremely impressive pratfall at 1.49 and then Cheryl Ladd rips off the wig!
- I liked the Angels infiltrating the Miss Chrysanthemum pageant, especially the Miss Chrysanthemum polka song which is repeated endlessly.
- That's like asking who is the classiest of the Kardashians.
- Thanks R102
- I love that Jaclyn Smith had NO idea Margo was really a man! Some detective...
I get some cable channel called CLOO that seems to run a "Charlie's Angels" marathon on Saturdays once every month or so. Cheesy fun!
- I knew Margo was a man, but I was completely surprised by Sally on "General Hospital" when she started speaking in that man's voice.
- "Angels in Springtime" is a camp classic! A spa run by criminal lezzies in pink tunics, guest starring Mercedes McCambridge (whose character hotly denies being a foot fetishist.)
- some kind of roller derby episode.
- Farrah on a skateboard ain't got jack shit on Wonder Woman!
- Thanks R110
- I always enjoyed the 4th season episode where Jaclyn and Shelly go undercover as prostitutes while Cheryl hangs out at a music school harassing the poor crazy girl with the multiple personality disorder who turns tricks as her alternate to keep the music school afloat.
- "Teen Angels" is a great ep! The Angels go undercover at a snobby boarding school and encounter Audrey Landers as the Queen Bee sociopath.
- Season One: "Ladykiller" Jill and Kelly work at a "Playboy"-type nightclub where the centerfolds are being killed. Sabrina diffuses an electrocuting bed and Kelly is chased by Alan Fudge atop an abandoned oil refinery.
Season Two: "Angels on Ice" The Angels try and stop a terrorist assassination at an Ice Capades show.
Season Three: "Angels In Springtime" Lots of lesbo action and Mercedes McCambridge calls Nancy Parsons a "muscle-bound nit-wit".
Season Four: "Angels on the Street" Shelley's best episode when she and Jaclyn turn streetwalkers and uncover a psychological crisis in their client Judy....or Rose ("Just Rose...Rose of the road").
Season Five: "Angel on the Line" Kelly squares off with a psychotic drag queen.
- Counterfeit Angels from Season 3 is another favorite. Fake Sabrina, Fake Kelly and Fake Kris are pulling heist jobs but the police think it's the real Angels so they have to go in hiding. Then the fake Sabrina gets hospitalized after a botch job so the real Sabrina infiltrates the gang as the sister of the fake Sabrina in dire need of cash. Great showcase for Kate Jackson's comedic acting skills.
- R113 - That video is not available in the US.
- Sorry R116, I'm in Canada - did you try entering the ep title into YT?
- I just sat through Love Boat Angels. It was a crossover episode. Loved it! Guest Star: Bert Convy! I had no clue he was so attractive when younger. Its also the first Shelley Hack episode.
Kate Jackson apparently is a huge bitch, so my fave angels are Jaclyn, Cheryl and Tanya.
I never cared for Hooknose Fawcett-Majors
- My LEAST favorite episode of the entire series was in the first season. It was titled "Three Girls and a Cup". It started off shitty and just got worse from there.
- Angel In Love; Sabrina falls for a crook.
The pilot. Diana Muldar!
The two-parter with Patrick Duffy, Robert Reed and Ray Milland that explored Kelly's true origin.
Kris' first case, a two-parter where they go to Hawaii to rescue Charlie.
Shelley Hack FINALLY gets to do something, saves her pal (GH's Heather) from an evil mate.
Angels in Chains. (Of course!)
- When Bright New Angel Shelley Hack Gives the Dickens to Jackie or Cheryl, It is a Book
- Kate's most fabulous hairstyle.
- Ah, not the best episode by far, but do you remember the one (first season, I think) where models are being attacked and scalped?
We are supposed to believe a man is assaulting them, but it is a woman who lost here hair because of cancer (was it cancer ?)
A bit campy.
- R123 - Kate looked better with long hair.
- "Remembrance of Angels Past"
In Paris for a detectives' conference, a taste of a madeleine dipped in lime-scented tea opens up for Sabrina a series of buried memories about love, snobbery, the nature of desire, and the subjective construction of time as played out among the highest reaches of French society during the Belle Epoque! PLUS: Kris goes undercover as an apache dancer!
- Lifeguard try outs or an excuse to gave them all in bikinis.
- "Toni's Boys" with Barbara Stanwyck, who runs a detective agency that just happens to employ three men.
After attempts are made on the Angels' lives, Charlie hires Stanwyck so that her boys can watch over the girls.
One of "Toni's Boys," Cotton -- played by Stephen Shortridge -- is hunk-a-licious. How that sexy young man didn't make a bigger splash in Hollywood, I'll never know. (And, damn, he looks good in a tight pair of jeans!)
- Thanks for the link R128
Here's Circus of Terror
- Here's Island Angels. One of the few times when Boseley brandishes a gun.
- "Angels on Campus" was also good. Shelly Hack returns to her sorority to investigate the disappearance of two young women on campus.
The episode features Gary Collins as the handsome professor over whom the coeds swoon. And the scenery is quite pretty, as it is filmed at the lovely University of Southern California campus.
- "Angel on the Line" was an interesting episode. On assignment, Kelly goes to a nightclub (oh, the 70s!) where patrons are seated at tables with phone...the idea being that you call someone you think looks hot.
Kelly gets a threatening call that has her scared the entire episode -- it was rather rare to see an Angel portrayed as scared...especially for an entire episode.
The hypnotist at the club, Margot, befriends Kelly and ostensibly wants to help her nab the bad guy...but, as we all know, there is quite a twist with Margot!
- Caged Angel. Kris goes to prison.
- [R133] Yes! "Caged Angel" had Big Aggie.
When Kris tries to go to sleep in her cell, shaking and crying. That was some great acting.
It's also a great mindfuck when the warden -- who seems straight-as-an-arrow -- turns out to be the mastermind behind the burglaries.
- Someone with far too much time on their hands made an "opening credits" film for Toni's Boys....
- R135 That's awesome!
Thanks for sharing. I'm bookmarking it...
- I like the one where Cheryl and Jacklyn tell Shelly Hack "You know...Um..this was a huge mistake, you're just bad, I mean really bad...And this is a show where bad is the defining bit. So just go..OK..We'll see you get your pay for the rest of your contract, but just go now."
- Margot was the campiest thing ever seen - this was filmed in 1981 before Joan Collins joined Dynasty. Angels On the Line had so many howlers. Margot's yellow outfit was to die for!
- "Angels in Chains"
- Get Set Death. As a tennis lover, this one was just absurd. The $25,000 LaHermosa Cup tennis tournament is the comeback of Carrie Jo Evans (get it - Billie Jean Evert?) and her competetion is being bumped off. Helga Borne, the Swedish Yoga queen, Carmita Medina, the champ of Mexico, etc. It also had one of the best villian names ever - ARLO SPINNER. At one point, a hit man with a high powered rifle is three feet away from his target, hiding behind a bush undetected by the 3 Angels. I think this ep would have been heaven for tennis loving Farrah, but she'd already flown the coup so Cheryl got to play the tennis tourney.
- I laughed my ass off when Jaclyn used the Bootsie Gumdrops line in the SVU episode she was in with Susan Anton and Ann-Margret.
- For some reason, a really weird episode is stuck in my head. It's weird enough that I think I might be making it up somehow. Can anyone verify?
Kris is undercover somehow with a guy who is a computer genius who figures out how to rob ATM machines. The drive to Las Vegas and win big at blackjack or poker or something. She winds up falling in love with him when she finds out he was stealing the money to prove that computers are fallible and gambled the money so he could pay it back with interest.
She seriously debates running away with him and decides not to help him escape.
- The bodybuilders.
Oh my young self loved that.
- Which do you think is the best season?
I would say 3 because it had Kate, Cheryl, and Jaclyn, and special appearances from FF.
- I loved all of the seasons...but am a bit partial to season 4 because, when younger, I had a thing for Tiffany Wellles (the whole beauty + brains thing)
- R145 - I didn't really care for Tiffani.
- Tiffany was my favorite angel too. It struck me as odd though. They hired her for a certain look and appeal then immediately began to change everything about her. They fucked with her hair so much it became dry and ugly. Shelley sure had her chances though. I can't think of any other actress that Hollywood tried to make happen more than her. Who was she fucking? She had at least six series with her as the lead and was in a couple of movies. Then they just gave up.
- Shelley seemed like a lesser version of Cheryl.
- Shelley was gorgeous and stylish in her Charlie ads.
- Then they went and did shit like this to her and she looked ridiculous.
- Here's all three angels where Shelley is in her glamor element, and to me anyway, she's clearly the most attractive.
- She looks too bony in R151
- Lauren Tewes was in Angels in Chains
- After reading this thread I watched two Charlie's Angels episodes yesterday and today. It's on Cozi-TV at 3 in the afternoon. They were both Shelley Hack episodes.
I always watched the show when it was on originally. I probably enjoyed the Kate Jackson years the most but liked all five.
- Very touching!
Jaclyn Smith Remembers Farrah Fawcett's Final 6 Months - Where Are They Now? - OWN
- I actually like the episodes with Farrah a lot better now that I'm watching them on Netflix. As a child I didn't start watching CA until the third season so for me, Cheryl Ladd was ALWAYS an angel.
What I DON'T like is the fact that they never explain what happens to the kitties. The kitten the French killer dragged around through the whole show; the kitten the autistic kid dragged around through the whole show; Scatman Crother's kitty on the leash after he gets run over in the alley by that freaky "New Darrin". Like, don't leave us hangin', people!!!
- I'm concerned for you, R156, considering CA isn't available on Netflix.
- Don't be concerned R157, I meant Crackle :)
- I will have to watch them on Crackle.
- Shelley was too fucking uptight.
As an angel, she sucked donkey balls.
- [quote]What I DON'T like is the fact that they never explain what happens to the kitties...Like, don't leave us hangin', people!!!
All the kitties were shelter cats later adopted by Jaclyn Smith and named Bootsie Gumdrops.
- I don't see it on crackle
- Sorry, R162, I'm in Canada. Maybe it's not on Crackle in the States.
- met Cheryl ladd SUPER NICE SWEET WOMAN! So any episode with her is awesome in my opinion :).
- Farrah who?
- I like the one where they were involved in a Vegas show and sang "Pals, Buddies, & Friends"!!!!
- Season 4 opening theme.
- I liked the sing-off between Kate Jackson and Farrah Fawcett at the Rusty Anchor.
- Oddly enough, I was watching Blossom last night and she and Six were sleeping outside a record store for C&C Music Factory tickets (I KNOW) and what should be next door to the record store? THE RUSTY ANCHOR!!!

[quote]She seriously debates running away with him and decides not to help him escape. Anyone?
I remember this one, r142. It's called "Angel on a Roll" and it's from the final season. Cheryl Ladd's/Kris Monroe's conflicted feelings about the bad guy are really the only memorable part of the plot. Though I seem to recall an episode with Kate Jackson having the same kind of emotional dilemma.
- R170 - CA recycle plot? Say it ain't so.
- Remember Jill dating an impossibly young and beautiful Timothy Dalton?
- Robin Mattson in Of Ghost and Angels.
- I used to laugh my ass off watching Sabrina outrun V8 land barges in her orange pinto.
- Why was the first half of season 5 playing in Hawaii? I cannot recall a reason, not even sure it was ever mentioned why. And why did they go back to LA at some pount?
- Let's not forget Jaclyn Smith's Emmy worthy episode when the bad guys was trying to turn her into a heroin addict.
- r175, Hawaii = endless bikini scenes. Ratings were dropping and they were blatantly trying to retain viewers any way possible.
- What was the Eason within the show?
- Tiffany's entrance
- The one with BEAMISH
- The Angels were in Hawaii to help open the Hawaiian branch of the Townsend Agency.
- Reading so much hilarious "Angels in Chains," "Angels on the Line" and Beamish talk has convinced me to watch [italic]Charlie's Angels[/italic]. The box set arrives tomorrow. You're all terrible influences.
- Another vote for the Bemish episode!!
- I bought season 3
- I have season 1. It has no special features. Do any of the other 4 seasons have any?
- My season 1 features some fan retrospective video and the "original pilot movie" is considered an extra. I think season 1 has been repackaged since I bought it though.
None of the other seasons has any extras. And if you're interested in season 5 with Tanya Roberts, spring a few extra bucks to buy the complete series boxset. The stand-alone season 5 is a DVD-R set manufactured on demand but the complete series set has actual pressed DVDs.
- I had to look up who Beamish was. Oh my. Here's Kelly Garrett's wiki page. She was very mysterious with a twisted past. Who knew?
- I have little else going on right now so I have been watching Charlie's Angels at 3:00 on Cozi-TV. Right now it's the Hawaii episodes from season 5 mentioned earlier. I haven't seen these later episodes in a very long time.
Programming note: It's followed by Here's Lucy at 4:00. I had forgotten how bad that show was.
- It's similar to Breaking Bad or Six Feet Under in that, to really appreciate all that is going on, it's best to start with the first episode and watch it straight through, never skipping an episode. So choosing "best" episodes is a little bit difficult.
But I'll go with the one at the circus where the dwarf has a crush on "Bosley John Bosley."
- R180 - Seriously? CA is much more story of the week than those shows. You don't need to know the backstory to enjoy it.
- My first cat was a shelter cat. We used to call her Bootsie Gumdrops.
- R141...I just sat through that SVU episode waiting for the Bootsie Gumdrops kickdown and it never happened!
- The Pals, Buddies and Friends episode aired today!
- The best is with Babs Stanwyck and the 3 queens who are hired to protect them.
- I just watched the one from season 3 when Jill comes to Kris because of a strange message. She winds up planning to race a special new car in the Grand Prix.
I really could see Farrah and Cheryl as sisters, even though they don't look all that alike.
- lmao just fell upon an episode from season 5 that had a man dressed in drag trying to kill 1 of them with a knife. When backup came, the drag queen ran but fell in a puddle and his wig was literally snatched before being arrested.
- The exciting climax of "Angel on the Line" with drag queen killer Margot. Jaclyn Smith sure isn't much of a detective if she couldn't figure out that was a man.
- R198 lmfao yes I happened upon that exact scene while surfing. Not surprised the episode ended with an embarrassing drag queen whimpering.
- I thought most of them were very entertaining. The worst was from the 5th season "Moonshining Angels" where it was a bad version of the Hatfields and McCoys. Plain Awful
- The Jade Trap
- and this Moonshinin' Angels. Cheryl goes southern.
