Charlie's Angels - Circus of Terror television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police officers turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. When a family circus is plagued by a series of accidents, the son (James Darren) of the owner (Ramon Bieri) hires the Angels to discover who is responsible. Everyone goes undercover in this one as Sabrina (Kate Jackson) becomes an assistant to a clown (Charles Tyner), Kris (Cheryl Ladd) becomes the knife thrower’s (Denny Miller) assistant, and Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) becomes the star of a motorcycle act with Bosley (David Doyle) as her assistant. Despite Kris’ earlier experience as a clown in “Angels on Ice,” it’s Sabrina who puts on the clown makeup this time around while Kris gets to have knives thrown at her by a man with secrets to hide.

Charlie's Angels - Angel Flight television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police officers turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. When an old friend (Fawne Harriman) of Sabrina (Kate Jackson) reaches out for help, the Angels set out to find who is harassing the stewardess. Kris (Cheryl Ladd) and Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) go undercover as new trainees while Sabrina plays herself, just an old friend in town for a few days. Despite the skill we’ve seen up until this point, the Angels miss some vital clues about the value of the experimental auto-pilot system the airline is launching with their training flight. It’s almost too late before they learn one of the pilots is attempting to steal the plane with the unwitting help of Sabrina’s friend.

Charlie's Angels - Pretty Angels All in a Row television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police officers turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie.

What Sabrina discovers, while getting herself captured, is the attacks on contestants and the kidnapping and bribing of judges are all part of a half-assed plan by a pair of henchmen (Burton Gilliam and Richard Kelton) attempting to get the daughter (Doney Oatman) of their boss the title.

Charlie's Angels - Angels on Ice television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police officers turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. Season Two of the show follows up it’s double-sized premiere with another two-hour episode sending the Angels in to investigate trouble with the Ice Capades only days before they are set to open. After the show’s two stars disappear, the unlikely sudden appearance of two talented unknowns raises further questions for the Angels. Despite lacking the talent of professional skaters, Kris (Cheryl Ladd) and Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) manage to charm their way into the show (although Kris finds herself playing the fool, literally). James Gammon guest-stars as the loyal but dimwitted Billy whose obsession with one of the stars allows the kidnappers access to the arena and starts the assassination plot rolling.

The show’s Second Season premiere offers a series of firsts for the show. First, “Angels in Paradise” marks the first two-part episode of the series (soon to be followed by the second). And second, the episode offers the first major change to the core cast as the exiting Farrah Fawcett is replaced by Jill‘s younger sister Kris (Cheryl Ladd). And third, the Angels venture far outside their comfort zone (both literally and figuratively) when they head to Hawaii after Charlie is kidnapped by a gangster (France Nuyen) wanting to exchange the Angels’ boss for her husband (Tommy Fujiwara) who she needs the Angels to break out of prison.
