Did Aaron just not re-new her contract for season 5? That must have been painful for her. I actually don't think she was THAT bad, they never really developed her character of Tiffany Welles. Shelley must have had a great agent, because after getting FIRED from "Charlies Angels" she was cast as the lead in 2 other network series.

by Anonymousreply 2404/13/2021

R24 I think it was a network decision. The ratings weren’t good. They needed a scapegoat and so she was an easy one. If they wanted a renewal they would have to replace her. Besides the search for an Angel always generated press so it was a win/win. I agree they never really gave her a chance and in later episodes I think she started to develop the character.

by Anonymousreply 2504/13/2021

Let's face it. She was also flat-chested and it was a show that featured women running down the street, jiggling. Somehow, Kate Jackson was OK, maybe because Farrah Fawcett made up for all that was lacking.

by Anonymousreply 2604/13/2021

I think it would have been very difficult for the show to survive both the loss of Fawcett AND Jackson. Bringing on new people in a pretty small cast (only 5 actors) is hard for viewers to adapt to. Shows that do this tend to suffer. ALL IN THE FAMILY comes to mind. Losing Sally Struthers and Rob Reiner creatively killed that show.

by Anonymousreply 2704/13/2021

Jackson wanted out like Farrah. If I was Aaron I would have made Kate suffer and fulfill her contract of 5 years. Kate got to walk, no lawsuit, no 6 required "guest appearances" like Farrah. It was really unfair. If I was Jaclyn and Cheryl I would have been pissed.

by Anonymousreply 4404/13/2021

Let's be clear: Kate Jackson invented "Charlie's Angels", the name and the whole concept were her ideas! (she never got paid a cent for her ideas though!) So without Kate Jackson, no "Charlie's Angels". She was the only actress on the show and she knew the ropes. The other inexperienced angels learned a lot from her. She was the leader on and off screen, protecting the other girls from being overworked. Jackson also demanded better scripts because she had been promised a show with more depth. The executives didn't like for a woman to speak her mind. The 70's... That's where "she's difficult" started. A woman not wanting to don a bikini but wanting to improve the show! You go, girl! By early season 3 Spelling wouldn't let Jackson do "Kramer vs. Kramer" and that's when she definitely wanted out. She fulfilled her contract and finished season 3 and told them she'd quit so Spelling told her she can't quit she's fired. In a documentary Spelling recalls saying "hell, what next!!" after Jackson had told them she wanted to do something else. So they were desperate because they were going to lose their real star, the real actress with the special something, who had been there from the beginning! Jaclyn said she hated to see Kate go. Which is no surprise. Kate, Farrah and Jaclyn had true chemistry. Charlie's Angels was never the same after Kate Jackson left.

by Anonymousreply 4504/13/2021

r45 IF that true that Kate was the only actress on the show and so important to the series, than why didi they let her walk out with 2 years left on her contract? They sue Farrah, stop her from working with a non-compete, and make her come back for 6 guest appearances. Kate has a hissy fit and calls the shots? They didn't let Jaclyn do the James Bond movie "Moonraker" and it makes sense that Kate couldn't do "Kramer VS Kramer". They had contract obligations, "Charlies Angels" made those girls.

by Anonymousreply 4604/14/2021

Kate needs to remember the role in "Kramer vs Kramer" didn't win an Academy Award, it was the PERFORMANCE. Meryl Streep compared to Jackson is a ridiculous comparison.

by Anonymousreply 4704/14/2021

I think Kate could have been very good in Kramer vs Kramer. Would it have been a different performance? Of course. Meryl Streep was also at the beginning of her career. R47 you're making a comparison on a career of a body of work.

Kate Jackson also if I remember has never spoken publicly about not being able to do the role. But I could see how as an actress being offered as role as prestigious as that and not being able to do it. It would be a disappointment.

[quote] Charlie's Angels was never the same after Kate Jackson left.

To be fair, the “quality” of the writing started taking a nosedive in Season 3. And the boring Kris solo episode, “Rosemary for Resemblance” at the end of S3 was a preview of what was to come in S4 where we got a lot of solo Angel episodes which tended to be boring (the exception being the Big Aggie episode which will always be a series standout!). The best episode of S4 by far was the three Angels being hunted on an island.

by Anonymousreply 5204/14/2021

The 2 things I love about the S4 Angel Hunt episode id that Kris and Kelly don't even try to help Tiffany, or even look for her, and that after finding out the Angels caught the bad guy, Charlie speeds away from the island so they don't see him, yet the island is still full of Tigers

Kate signed a seven-year contract with Spelling-Goldberg to do The Rookies. She was committed to do another series with them if The Rookies got canceled before then, which it did.

That's why she was in on Charlie's Angels from the creation. She did four seasons of The Rookies and three of Charlie's Angels.

That’s a point. As a gayling I definitely wasn’t interested in the T&A aspect! And as far as chemistry there was a lot of it in S1, but Kate and Cheryl had very little of it which is quite evident in hindsight. The strength of Season 2 was that it had fun premises - the circus, a beauty pageant, Hawaii...

If there had been more episodes like “Angel Hunt” in S4 I think the show would have remained Top 10 in the ratings. And Shelley would have given a fair chance. She did get more likable as the season progressed.

R46 Of course it is true! R70 explains it perfectly. On a side note Farrah was paid $150,000 Dollars for each of her guest appearances. None of the involved were allowed to make this public for several years.

As I said Jackson created the show that made those girls. It also made Kate a huge star but she was already very popular with audiences when she did "The Rookies". Kate was no Barbie Doll and never intended to be one. Instead she brought warmth, depth and credibility to the show. Also comedy. She changed a lot of things. Kate said it was the most fun creating characters that weren't written in the scripts, doing accents, doing anything that made the character and the scenes completely different in a good way. It is widely recognized that Kate Jackson was the only true actress on the show. And a very talented one at that who had studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC. She had a lot of acting experience when she became an Angel. You don’t have to be an expert to see Jackson’s great skill.

The Kramer vs. Kramer people were very willing to be accommodating to Jackson's Charlie’s Angels schedule. And Kate was willing to fly to NYC on weekends to do the movie and work on CA during the week! There were negotiations and just when things seemed to work out Spelling/Goldberg made it impossible. Goldberg is on record saying they didn't know at the time what a wonderful part it was. I see…. Looks like if they had known they would have let Kate do the movie. It was a big mistake for them to prevent their star from doing that movie. The End of Charlie’s Angels. You are right R48!

by Anonymousreply 8004/15/2021

Kate Jackson made a big splash in Dark Shadows circa '70-'71. It makes sense that Spelling-Goldberg—which wanted to become a major drama-series production house like QM—would sign her to a long-term deal starting in '72.

It also makes sense that Kate would be pissed off that she helped give Spelling-Goldberg two big hit dramas in six years and they couldn't work around her schedule for a few weeks to do one movie role.

by Anonymousreply 8304/15/2021

Shelley gets too much blame and Kate gets too much credit for Charlie's Angels' downfall.

It all had to do with competition. CA was a smash hit in its first three seasons on Wednesdays at 9 because CBS and NBC had nothing to put against it. In season 4, NBC slotted Diff'rent Strokes against CA, which took the kiddie audience and knocked CA down to #20. Not that bad, considering.

But when Tanya Roberts joined, ABC moved CA to Sundays at 8 against Archie Bunker and CHiPS, and the ratings dropped into the bottom 10. If it had stayed on Wednesday at 9, it would have led into Dynasty and been fine. But a new programming regime wanted the old one's shows off the schedule.

You would have thought that Spelling/Goldberg would've learned after the Hack debacle that another conventionally 'pretty' Angel wasn't what the public wanted, they wanted a 'smart', 'sensible' Angel like Kate, which is why Sada Thompson would have been perfect. Sada's Angel Lorraine would've taken the show in a different direction and she would have brought over her fan base from Family, a completely different demographic. I know Sada's on record as saying she didn't like the costuming (jeans, twin sets and pumps) and didn't realize she would have to run so much, but the reality is it came down to Spelling/Goldberg not wanting to take a chance. As they found out quickly: it blew up in their face.

Similarly I would have had lots of interaction between Jill and the other Angels in all of Farrah’s guest episodes. Farrah must have had it in her contract that for S4 she’d have as little screen time with the other actresses as possible. Instead they paired her up with a male guest star (eg Timothy Dalton) for almost the entire episode which was always a major bore.

I think the only time she and Shelley were in the same frame involved Tiff pouring her a glass of champagne and Jill saying ‘thank you’.

Farrah’s last episode involved Jill being kidnapped, and she shared a tiny scene with Cheryl Ladd when she’s rescued. Her very last scene was with David Doyle without any of the other Angels.

r137. Um, I never said she didn't have talent. She was later cast in 3 other network series's. It's just that Shelley didn't have that spark of chemistry with her co-stars. im sure that's why she was also fired from Night Court. Jaclyn wasn't a great actress, but she just gave off good energy with the other girls.

Shelley’s Tiffany was intelligent, pretty and witty. The whole East Coast vibe was very appealing. She looked fab in all of the Nolan Miller fashions. Sure, her hair looked like straw during the first half of her season but I found her a big step up from Kate Jackson.

Huge Kate fan. She was the only real true actress in the bunch.

That said, I adored Shelley as Tiffany. She fit in like a glove. I call that season 'Dynasty Angels'

But they shot themselves in the foot by not giving her enough to do.

I would have done season three of Angels (whenever Kate wanted out to do Kramer vs. Kramer) that Sabrina gets kidnapped and a series of rotating angles come in to help Kelly and Kris find her -- include Jill in the rotation -- and then Kate comes back after filming Kramer. They find her and she agrees to stay on another year or whatever.

Shameful they never resolved who Kelly's birth family was. Who Sabrina married. Why Tiffany decided to 'spend time back east' and why the most street Angel of all -- Julie -- wasn't a cop like the others.

With Kate not viable the only angel combo left is the S4 squad. They could do a reunion movie Angels in Autumn. At the behest of Charlie's nephew who mails out their pension checks, the angels go undercover one last time at the senior center where Bosley (now played by Ed Asner) fears for his life. As they investigate to solve the series of rough-eldersex-gone-wrong murders at the Palm Springs facility, Kris gets a job teaching the exercise class, Kelly checks in as a freewheeling new (and single) resident from the south looking for a man, and Tiff pretends to be a reporter from Active Seniors magazine.

Guest stars include June Lockhart as the facility librarian who catches Kelly going through file folders. Kelly gives her a S5-style random beatdown. Harry Belafonte plays the resident stud (singing a crappy Ed Lakso song) who comes on to Tiffany, William Shatner as the murderous villain with a criminal past who's actually in hiding under another name at the facility, who thinks Kelly looks good. Robert Wagner is the red herring suspect. The victims are played by Tippi Hedren and Eva Marie Saint.

After the Angels burst in just in the nick of time to stop a drugged Kelly from becoming the next victim, the episode culminates in a Hoveround chase down the hallway of the facility where Kris leaps on the perp from behind. As he keeps bumping it against the walls trying to throw her off, suddenly the hoveround catches fire. As the sex killer pulls a gun and starts to try to get away on foot, Tiff pulls her gun and screams "Drop it!" A still dopey Kelly has inched her way down the hall toward them. Kris, barely fazed by the fact that she was nearly burned alive, says, "You OK, Kelly?" and Kelly says "Yes. Nothing like that has happened to me for a long time." And you can tell she's not OK. Angel chime, commercial.

For the button scene, the gals (looking fabulous) have lunch at an outdoor cafe handily located across the street from the old, now closed, Townsend Office and they look at the door and offer brief reminiscence. Kris says one line about her sister Jill. Kelly says one line about her friend Sabrina. Tiff asks what happened to the girl that came after her...was her name Julie?

They agree to meet up once a year until there's only one angel left.
