Charlie's Angels - Dancing in the Dark 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. Despite it’s title, “Dancing in the Dark” does not involve the Angels working a Bruce Springsteen concert. Instead, the episode involves the Angels going after a blackmailing ring (run by John Van Dreelen and Dennis Cole) that targets lonely women in the public eye. Sabrina (Kate Jackson) goes in undercover as the mark, a socially awkward heiress to a large fortune, while Jill (Farrah Fawcett) becomes a dance instructor at the location where the blackmailers find their targets and Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) takes the place of the criminals’ private investigator (Logan Ramsey) who specializes in background checks and taking juicy photos for blackmail.

Charlie's Angels - The Vegas Connection 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. The unusual behavior of a client’s wife (Carla Borelli) leads them to a Las Vegas casino and an unscrupulous employee (Michael Callan) turning chorus girls into prostitutes and blackmailing the casino’s wealthiest and most well-known clients. Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) is the only one of the Angels to go undercover as a chorus girl willing to do what it takes to earn the job. Bosley (David Doyle) also breaks out his heavy Texas accent as a high roller and potential target for their blackmailer. As for Jill (Farrah Fawcett), she has a harrowing run-in with one of the blackmailer’s thugs in the casino’s parking lot that some quick thinking, fast driving, and the unexpected use of her purse help her survive.

  • Title: Charlie’s Angels
  • IMDb: link

Charlies Angels Blu-ray reviewCharlie’s Angels is a sequel (of sorts) to both the 70s television show and the movies from the early 2000s, Charlie’s Angels and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. The Townsend Agency has gone global, there are now Angels in offices all around the world (and for reasons never explored, each has a support agent all of whom use the codename of Bosley). The team the film focuses on is made up of former heiress and thief Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart) and former MI6 agent Jane Kano (Ella Balinska) who are assigned to help programmer Elena Houghlin (Naomi Scott) who has uncovered some dangerous truths about her company’s new technology. After extraction, Elena’s skill set proves useful and she soon becomes one of the team.

The movie highlights some of the goofiness of the original television show in terms of disguises and planning, it also ratches up the action quite a bit. There are plots and subplots here, some making the main story more convoluted than necessary and others simply used as filler.

Charlie's Angels - Dirty Business 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. While his mother is a sweet woman (Eda Reiss Merin), Marvin Goldman (Warren Berlinger) turns out to be in the running for Townsend Investigations’ scuzziest client. While operating a film laboratory, Marvin is also a blackmailer and pornographer which helps explain the attempt of someone trying to burn down the company (and Marvin’s reluctance to hire the Angels). “Dirty Business” is notable for none of the Angels going undercover, while Sabrina (Kate Jackson) and Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) both play a role in short separate scenes to illicit information, for the rest of the episode the Angels are working as themselves.
