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.

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.
