Was that just code for “Well, she’s not as pretty as Jaclyn or Farrah?” Did she ever do anything that indicated she was smarter than the other Angels? I think I saw quite a few episodes in the original run, as well as reruns, but I can’t for the life of me remember any plots.
I seem to recall one of the publicity photos showed her holding a chess piece. Ergo, smart.
Mad magazine summed it up pretty well. It was because she wore higher necklines.
It goes like this -
Kelly - the Angel from “the streets.” (even though Jacklyn Smith could convincingly play a tough, edgy, streetwise babe about as well as Kelsey Grammer could play Macbeth.)
Jill - the ‘athletic’ Angel (read - the writers thought up every possible way they could to get Farrah Fawcett to jiggle her bra-less pair for as often as possible during every episode.)
Sabrina - the smart Angel (which, and I know I’m not the only who thought this as a kid, was code for ‘the LESBIAN Angel.’)
You really think Kelsey Grammer couldn’t do Macbeth?
Frazier Crane probably not, but…
Short, sensible hair. Duh :).
Kelsey Grammar could probably do a convincing MacBeth.
But Jaclyn Smith as a tough, streetwise broad? Yeah, right…
I once saw *Charlie’s Angels * dubbed into Spanish in Spain. My Spanish was much better then than now but I seem to recall that it was treated as a very serious crime drama. I wondered if that was irony or that’s just the way Spanish dubbers do all shows.
Smaller boobs, thats why.
You mean they all weren’t lesbians? Wow, way to crush a guy’s fantasies.
No, the other two were bi.
Well, I thought she was prettier than Farrah, at least. I’m one of those peculiar hetero American men who never found Farrah Fawcett attractive.
