In Charlie's Angels: The Killing Kind (1976), Bosley mentions having a wife. However in later seasons of the series, the character is portrayed as being a bachelor (i.e. he being in pursuit of females romantically). See more »
With hardly any exception, whenever the angels went "undercover", they always used their real first and last name. This wouldn't occur in real life. See more »
Once upon a time, there were three little girls who went to the Police Academy; and they were each assigned very hazardous duties. But I took them away from all that, and now they work for me. My name is Charlie.

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.
