Once upon a time, Jill, Sabrina and Kelly were police officers whose skills were being wasted in menial duties such as answering phones and filing. A mysterious millionaire named Charles Townsend took them away from all that by opening his own private investigation agency and hiring these gorgeous ladies as his operatives with John Bosley acting as their assistant and liaison.

While the 2000 Angels feature film (starring Cameron Diaz, etc.) kept faith with the original show's self-mockingly sloppy storytelling, there's nothing like seeing the old episodes for a lesson in narrative hubris. Basically, the three leading characters were bored policewomen wooed away to a private firm owned and operated by the unseen sybarite, Charlie (voiced--over speakerphone--by an uncredited John Forsythe). After a long set-up each week, the girls' investigations typically saw them going undercover: as fashion models--no great stretch--in "Night of the Strangler"; nurses in "Terror on Ward One"; roller-derby stars in "Angels on Wheels"; and vulnerable convicts (of course) in "Angels In Chains." The exploitation factor is not as bad as it might have been. The cast was so glamorous, their chemistry so perfect, Charlie's Angels never became a mere meat market. Despite such nods to modernity as Fawcett's no-bra look, the episodes were old-fashioned in their heroine-in-peril appeal, yet there was a difference: The Angels looked out for themselves and each other. --Tom Keogh

|Will there be a fourth season of Charlie's Angel's??||
The show ran a total of five years. The last two seasons were not as strong as the first three because of the departure of Kate Jackson who it seems a lot of fans were not too fond of. I liked her because she was the only beleveable detective in the shows run, and she was just as attactive as... Read More

|Help original Charlie's Angels trivia question||
No, I think this photo was also used when they appeared on Time magazine. Google "Time" and "Charlies Angels" for photos and see what you get. It's difficult to assess without better description. BTW, Kelly would be Jaclyn Smith. LOL!
By the way- more trivia here- there are... Read More
