Charlie’s Angels vs. The Bionic Woman #1

Charlie's Angels vs. The Bionic Woman #1 comic reviewThe Angels are sent by Charlie to infiltrate a laboratory and retrieve the secrets of a former government program that have fallen into the private sector. Their client, the original inventor, wants the plans returned to him. Easy, peasy, right? Trouble is, the people in control of the new business have ties to OSI and have brought in their own security. Jaime Summers has very personal reasons for not wanting to see the technology which saved her life stolen by a trio of strangers.

Some of Dynamite Entertainment’s team-ups work better than others. This one seems like a natural match with both shows taking place at roughly the same time and featuring female leads. The comic also shakes things up by not using the original Angels, who are showcased in the ongoing title, but choosing a later team of Kris and Julie teaming up with Kelly.

Charlie's Angels - Bullseye television review

Today’s Throwback Thursday post takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. Murder on the firing range sends the Angels undercover in Women’s Army Corps. While Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) and Jill (Farrah Fawcett) show up as new recruits, Sabrina (Kate Jackson) takes on the role of a nurse. Even if the episode hadn’t started with revealing the killer to the audience, the sadistic Drill Sgt. Billings (L.Q. Jones) is the obvious suspect. He doesn’t take to kindly to people snooping through his office as Kelly learns when he sabotages her gas mask during a training exercise. Later, Jill learns the same lesson when she is taken prisoner by the soldier as his ticket off the base.

Charlie's Angels - Lady Killer television review

Today’s Throwback Thursday post takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. Hugh O’Brian guest-stars as a Hugh Hefner-style magazine and club owner who hires Townsend Investigations to look into the murder of two models. While Jill (Farrah Fawcett) goes in undercover as a waitress and model, Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) becomes the lounge’s new singer, and Sabrina (Kate Jackson) steps in as their client’s “old friend.” The episode’s mystery appears to come to a close with ten minutes still remaining as the Angels uncover the sinster machinations of their client’s longtime partner (Alan Fudge). However, after Jill is attacked later that night it becomes apparent that the killer is still at large.

Charlie's Angels - To Kill an Angel television review

Today’s Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. While taking an autistic boy to an amusement park, Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) is accidentally shot by young Skip (Dennis Dimster) after he finds the gun used in a recent murder. As Skip runs off, and an unconscious Kelly is rushed to the hospital, it falls on Jill (Farrah Fawcett), Sabrina (Kate Jackson), and Bosley (David Doyle) to piece together events as they start a search for the traumatized Skip who wanders around the city collecting an assortment of trinkets for his fallen friend (just like in the story Kelly told him). From the outset of Kelly losing Skip at the amusement park and then accidentally get shot, “To Kill an Angel” offers a serious tone throughout. In fact, the only time the Angels crack a smile is when Jill and Sabrina are able to catch one of the killers inside a carnival ride.
