Did You Know?


Though many believe the detective series Vega$ (1978) is a spin-off of "Charlie's Angels", Dan Tanna (played by Robert Urich) was not introduced here, but rather in a Pilot that was aired as an ABC TV Movie of the Week on Tuesday, April 25th, 1978 (five months before "Charlie's Angels" aired its third season opener on Wednesday, September 13th, 1978). The crossover was simply used to promote the debut of "Vega$" as an ongoing series (which itself debuted one week later on Wednesday, September 20th, 1978). See more »

70s television in all its glory
11 July 2006 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Season 3 of Charlie's Angels gets off to a bang as the Angels head to Vegas for a double episode with guest star Dean Martin. Watching Deano walk through a casino with a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other isn't much of a stretch. Martin is a casino owner who has seen a number of unfortunate events around him. Most recently, one of the women working in his casino was killed. The Angels are hired to find out what's behind the series of "accidents" and put a stop to them. Once there, they find no shortage of suspects and it becomes quite obvious that someone doesn't want them to complete their investigation.

Yeah, Angels in Vegas is 70s television in all its glory. It's cheesy, unrealistic, and a whole lot of fun. If you're going to enjoy this stuff, you simply cannot take it seriously. And I think that's why it appeals to me. When I watch TV today, everything is so realistic and so serious. Murder scenes are graphic and investigators barely crack a smile. The world is tough enough without bringing it into my living room every night. I want to be entertained. I want escapism. I want to have a good time. And that's just what a show like Charlie's Angels does for me. Angels in Vegas may not be the best episode in the series, but I had a good time with it. It's the kind of television I miss.
