John Forsythe was never on the set - his voice was recorded, and dubbed in later. He told Aaron Spelling that for him to make an on-screen appearance he would have to be paid a lot of money. Forsythe also never visited the set during the entire run of the show. See more »
When this show first came on, it was dismissed as nothing more than a jiggle show. However, this was one of the first shows that showed that women could go out and get the bad guys just like the boys could. Of course, I was a fan of the Kate Jackson era. The three years she was on the show were its greatest era. She definitely was the star of that show and when she left I stopped watching. But, it was her chemistry with Jaclyn Smith, Cheryl Ladd and of course Farrah Fawcett that made it one of the top shows of the 1970's.
