Trivia

Producer Aaron Spelling had also been the producer of the first prime-time TV series with a female private eye in the title role, Honey West (1965) starring Anne Francis. That show may have been ahead of its time, as it only lasted one season. Then in 1976, the public was ready to accept the concept and this series was a runaway hit. See more »

Jiggle TV
7 July 2006 | by (TCM's Basement) – See all my reviews

For those of you not around for it's original run, Charlie's Angels was not just a hit TV show, it was a phenomenon. Every magazine and rag magazine had a picture of "The Angels" on their covers. Incredibly popular, it all came down to Farrah and her 70's fly away hair, her dazzling toothy smile, her skateboarding pose wearing Addia's, her shampoo, her toothpaste, THE bathing suit poster of the century, and then she was gone. Exiting after only one season Charlie's Angels never was the same again. Bolstered by Jill's kid sister, Kris (Cheryl Ladd) and then others, Charlie's Angels never again climbed to the heights of sheer madness of its first season. Owing its popularity to episodes such as "Angels in Chains" and "Angels on Wheels," it fulfilled many a preadolescence male's fantasy and "Jiggle TV" was born. It may be a period piece today but it was a product of the fun, wacky 1970's that gave it birth.
