Anyone remember a TV show from the 70s about three pretty female detectives and their never- seen boss?
The boss gave instructions about the episode's case over the phone to the girls, who just seemed to lounge around the office. They also drove cool cars. There was also a fat guy they worked with who served mostly as comic relief. There was a revolving door of actresses, but they were all really pretty. I think the show lasted a few years. For some reason I was thinking about the show today, and for the life of me I can't remember the name of the show. Does anyone else remember this series? I'd go to IMDB, but I don't remember any of the actors' name. Much thanks.
You're thinking of Bridget Loves Bernie.
He means The Golden Girls.
The many loves of Dobie Gillis. He was never seen.
Sada Thompson played their mother. That's all I can remember.
The Cosby Show.
Car 54, Where Are You?
Pretty sure one of the girls' names was Jackie Lee who later worked for Kmart, and another one's was Farrakhan, and we have their very own Cheryl here on DL, I think. But I could be wrong.
They also had that weird lesbian who is a major hoarder to the point of wading through her house's garbage. That was written about here on DL by her assistant.
The Shelley Hack Show
Bootsie Gumdrop and the Shelter Cats.
Best episode: "Bootsie in Chains."
Fox Force Five.
No no, it was the doorman who was never seen. He communicated through an intercom right near the door. The 3 ladies were Rhoda Fay, Brenda Fay and Ida Fay Morgenstern.
Oh golly, OP, I have no fucking idea!
oh my r13...how embarrassing for you...
Why did you type all that shit OP? I don't get it. Are you bored or just stupid?
r15=Angry at the world
"Seck's Kittens," with Fred MacMurray's voice as Bernie Seck, their never-seen boss. I think the three girls were Meredith MacRae, Angela Cartwright, and a then-unknown Sissy Spacek.
Lost In Space ?
That Girl times 3
I'm fairly certain it was the Mary Tyler Moore show.
Pink Lady and Jeff
That was a good one,OP! I remember the boss was Donna Pescow - that gal who always wore short fur jackets. She rode those other ladies pretty hard when they couldn't pay their rent!
They don't make 'em like that anymore.
That fat "man" was actually a woman, OP. Her name was Florida Evans, and the show was called "Good Times." It also featured the now-has-been sister of Michael Jackson, who experienced fleeting fame with a couple of albums in the '80s but today is best known for having obsessive fans who still think she's on par with Madonna.
OP, you're thinking of The Beef Curtain Trenchcoats.
NCIS Los Angeles?
This is one of the funnier threads on DL.
Of course, the fraus with no sense of humor are ruining it
Seeing Things. It was a Canadian show.
R4 is an ijit.
ROFL @ R22!
Mark Harmon is the ugly one
The things gays do to amuse themselves. lol
The Lee Grant Show.
Love, Sidney. Swoozie was the smart one.
I remember that show. It was called "Get Christie Love".
Facts of Life
"The Three Smooges". Somebody thought it would be funny to have three beautiful woman redo the old 3 Stooges routines.
Jim Backus was great as the unseen boss and the fat guy was actually the great grandson of Curly Howard.
The ladies loved it because they thought physical comedy allowed them to show their range as an actress.
Shame about the lovely Christopher Norris losing a foot in an on set accident though.
It was either My Three Sons or Adam-12. Mmmm, Kent McCord does Don Grady... What? What was the question again?
Barbara Mandrell & the Mandrell Sisters
Or maybe it was just called The Mandrell Sisters. I can't remember now.
It's About Time?
If memory serves me correctly, the show was called "Boobie Trap." Their boss was named Mr. Furley.
The Flying Nun
Cagney and Lacey.
OP, what do we look like, Charlie's Angels???
It was "Shields and Yarnell". I used to love that show. I can't remember all the actors, but a young Ana Alicia played the newbie detective, and the guy that played the fat boss/comic relief was Wendie-Jo Sperber.
Codename: Firefox starring Joanna Cassidy and Sheryl Lee Ralph
Alice. I still have the Beth Howland pin-up poster.
I don't remember any female detectives on the show. I just remember the mysterious boss who would make fantasies come to life on some kind of island. Sorry I can't be of more help.
"Leave It To Beaver."
Does anyone have a link to the DL post r8 is referencing?
Blansky's Beauties. Although written to be unseen, Nancy Walker as the boss would just walk on the set & improvise lines. It does explain the look of panic usually glimpsed in the eyes of the beauties.
I seem to recall one of the actresses had very thin lips and a pushed in face. She was gorgeous.
R52, sorry I don't. It must have been true stories of celebs, or celebs I have known. One of those kinds of threads. It was awhile ago, probably within the last year. I was surprised at how bad he said she was. Mentally ill.
It's definitely Hogan's Heroes.
There was a fat guy in that who was comic relief...
