Tiffany Welles (Shelley Hack) promised to be a very interesting character, with a background in metaphysics, having studied at the Erhard Seminars Training, and a keen interest in the occult, which allowed her to communicate with the dead. Sadly, Tiffany's short-lived stay at the Charles Townsend Agency (Shelley Hack was sadly replaced after her first season) didn't allow enough time for the writers to develop her unusual past and explore her uncanny potential. She is remembered as the most elegant Angel of them all. 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.

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.
