Charlie's Angels - The Seance TV review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. Investigating a string of robberies leads the Angels back their client’s (Gertrude Flynn) spiritual advisor (Carole Cook). While the con woman isn’t the source of the robberies, her silent partner (Rene Auberjonois) is, and he has found a way to hypnotize his subjects to both make the seances more dramatic and to instruct his victims into delivering high-priced jewelry to him. While the woman’s seances are laughable, her partner’s use of hypnotism is anything but.

Charlie's Angels - Consenting Adults #tvreview

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. The Angels are hired to look into the disappearance of the owner (Dick Dinman) of an antique store who disappeared shortly after his store was robbed. Delving into the case, the intrepid trio discover a computer dating scam involving a call girl (Laurette Spang) and her partners who rob locations while she keeps the mark entertained. That’s only half the story, however, as there’s also the matter of one specific stolen item that has great value for the missing man’s business associate (Alan Manson).

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.
