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 number of men who served together in WWII begin being assassinated, an old friend (John Larch) of Charlie’s enlists the help of Townsend Investigation to keep him alive. With the help of a woman (Phyllis Avery) who Charlie helped relocate after the war, the Angels are able to identify the assassin as a man named Jericho (Fernando Lamas).

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 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.
