6.6./10. It was something. You had 6 gorgeous women on there at one time or another doing private eye work, glamour and glitz were abound. But look beyond that after awhile and what's there?Nothing, absolutely nothing.Charlie's Angels was flat out blatant T&A for the sake of T&A.You can only present a show on this for so long before people catch on.I used to think feminists were responsible for killing off Charlie's Angels.Now though I realize they killed themselves off. The plots were either nonsensical or rather weak.They constantly wore tight stuff usually doing women oriented jobs like stewardesses. The whole thing was a joke with only one of them realizing it.I would describe each actress as follows: Shelley Hack: Best one of them who got messed over by the producers and Cheryl Ladd as it was said she wanted to be the only blond, also felt threatened by her height.Shelley was the most believable one and deserved better treatment. Tanya Roberts: A little bland but she never tried to hog the spotlight, one who didn't fit in with the dynamics but chosen because of her looks, seemed nice. Farrah Fawcett: The worst of them acting wise who couldn't cut it outside of this T&A show.She was smart enough though to see it for what it was and leave. Jaclyn Smith: Plays every character the same with hardly any difference.She seemed content to sit on her butt and let the feud of Ladd vs Jackson, Ladd bullying Hack happen.She cared only about herself, sneaky really sneaky type here. Kate Jackson:Why they brought in this schoolmarm looking type I don't know.If the show was supposed to be about glamour and glitz she fit in as much as a cat does in a dog pound. She too, like Ladd and Fawcett, suffered from a swollen head and big ego.Now finally Cheryl Ladd: She may have seemed friendly but wasn't Underneath that smiling exterior lurked a bitter type who resented being referred to as Farrah's replacement.She fought with Jackson, one reason for her to quit also bullied Hack over what I've listed. This woman had issues, has tried a singing gig like Lynda Carter and, like her, can't carry a tune.I finish saying Aaron Spelling was one of the most devious minded men ever in television.He ranks up there with Dick Wolf and Gene Roddenberry as some of the worst to ever get any show on air.
Trivia: The original actor who had been cast as Charlie had a drinking problem, and couldn't deliver his lines properly. John Forsythe got called up by creator Aaron Spelling after midnight on a Friday night and was asked to record lines ASAP because the show had to be aired Monday night. He headed straight down to the studio at 20th Century Fox, still in his slippers and pyjamas, recorded the lines and went straight back to bed.
