Though many believe the detective series Vega$ (1978) is a spin-off of Charlie's Angels (1976), Dan Tanna (played by Robert Urich) was not introduced here, but rather in a Pilot that was aired as ABC TV Movie of the Week on the evening of Tuesday, April 25th 1978. The crossover, (Charlie's Angels: Angels in Vegas (1978)) was simply used to reintroduce the Dan Tanna character and to remind and promote the debut of "Vega$" as an ongoing series, it debuted one week later on Wednesday, September 20th, 1978. The two dates, Tuesday, April 25th, 1978, and Wednesday, September 20th, 1978, differ 148 days equaling 21 weeks & 1 day. 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.
