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.

Charlie's Angels - Angels in Paradise 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 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.

Charlie's Angels - Angels at Sea 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. The Angels take to the high seas as passengers aboard a cruise ship that has had several fatalities over the past few months. Before even leaving the offices, the Angels are warned not to board the ship when a life-size dummy is nailed to the office door. More warnings come aboard the ship in notes left for each of them warning of dangers to come. Despite the warnings, and the killer knowing who they are, Sabrina (Kate Jackson), Jill (Farrah Fawcett), Kelly (Jaclyn Smith), and Bosley (David Doyle) board the ship as passengers without their regular undercover identities.

Charlie's Angels - I Will Be Remembered comic 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. Ida Lupino guest-stars as an aging actress on the eve of a comeback who is being frightened by staged scenes from her old movies brought to life in attempts to drive her off the film for good. Sabrina (Kate Jackson) takes the role of the actress’ new secretary while Jill (Farrah Fawcett) does some snooping as a reporter and Kelly (Jaclyn Smith), with the help of an odd couple of agents, gets a bit part on the movie allowing her to stick around the set.
