The original concept of the Angels was to have one brunette, one red-head and one blonde. Kate Jackson was aboard from the beginning of the project and was set to play the lead angel. Farrah Fawcett was the next to join, filling the blonde role, but then the producers dropped the hair color concept and brought in Jaclyn Smith to complete the trio. This hair color concept finally came into being when Tanya Roberts (a red-head) joined the show in the fifth season. See more »
Three Beautiful Detectives...What More Could A Man Want?
I loved Charlies Angels very much. Okay, I could ignore the cheezy plots because in front of me each week were three beautiful young ladies working as private detectives.
The original girls were Farrah Fawcett-Majors as Jill Monroe, Kate Jackson as Sabrina Duncan and Jaclyn Smith as Kelly Garrett. They were my favourite line up in the show. Their bosses were John Bosley (played by the late David Doyle) and the faceless Charlie Townsend (voiced by John Forsythe).
Each week the girls happened to go undercover on a case which required them to strip down in places such as health-spas and holiday camps. They used their seductive (and detective) skills to bring down the bad guys.
It was fun throughout even when the line-up changed and there were some really weird and surreal episodes at times. But who cares-when you've got three lovely women on the screen, great plots matter little.
