Pick on whatever criteria you like. You are allowed to pick three of course.
I included all of the Angels from the original show, plus the movies, and even the revival series of 1989, 1998, and 2011 because I figured somebody might have been watching them. But I didn’t include one-shots. Or Bosleys.
Sabrina, Kelly and Jill. Not only because of Sabrina and Kelly’s hidden love (which didn’t become apparent to me until later), but because I have trouble separating Jill Munroe from whoever that character was she played on “Harry O”, which was my favorite show at one time.
It appears you’re right. The show was cast but no episodes were ever aired (and I can’t confirm any episodes were actually produced).
Two interesting things I did find were that the show was going to have four angels instead of three. And while three of the actresses had some previous roles, one was a complete unknown in her first job: Tea Leoni, who ironically became the only one of the four to go on to have a significant career.
That’s kinda what’s been troubling me. I haven’t seen either of the movies, so don’t feel qualified to vote for any of them. Of course, I haven’t seen Tea Leoni as an Angel, either, but she just seems like she’d be worth watching. However, she tends to portray the brainier sorts of babes, and I don’t know if I can have her and Kate Jackson on the team at the same time.
Had to go with the original 3. I was in love with Farrah and her poster when it came out. Later came to appreciate jacklyn Smith for how beautiful she is when I matured a bit. And why not round out the original 3 with Kate Jackson.
The being said I realize now how awful the show was.
as a kid who graduated HS in 1980… I was all about Sabrina.
My tastes have always been different. On One Day at a Time; I always thought Julie Cooper (Mackenzie Phillips) was way hotter than and Barbara Cooper (Valerie Bertinelli). I look back now and say “What was I thinking?”
Had to go with Sabrina, Kelly, and Jill. They are* the *Angels, and everybody else is just a replacement.
I, however, have no objections to the movie trio (especially Lucy Liu – roowrr!!), and actually enjoyed those films for what they were. I watched a couple episodes of the most recent series, and none of them made enough impression on me that I could pick any one out of a lineup today.
One of my favorite ever lines from King of the Hill is uttered by Hank’s dad, Cotton. He turns on the TV and the Charlies Angels theme plays. Cotton says, “Damn. Shelley Hack. That’s like gettin’ a Shemp.”
Didn’t really watch the original show much, but I liked the revival movies well enough, and so I voted for those 3.
Plus the women from the older show just look really, really dated, and unattractive to me now. Odd, lots of stars from the '20s are still attractive, even stars from the '40s and '50s. The '70s though, is just this complete decade of ugly.
