John Forsythe appeared on this show and Dynasty (1981) concurrently. On both shows, he was the lead; on this series, he played the eponymous Charlie; on that series, he played Blake Carrington, the patriarch of the Carringtons. It is one of the only times an actor has had the lead in two shows at the same time. See more »
Throughout the series a shot of the Townsend Agency building with the Angels' cars out front is used whenever establishing the next scene. Which cars are out front rarely match which Angels are in the next office scene.
BTW, when all three cars are parked, they are almost always in the same order, left-to-right on the screen (white, yellow and orange).
Also note that the one on the left (normally the white one) and the one on the right (normally the orange one) are always parked in "no parking" spots (the red paint). Note also that there is only one parking meter. 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.

For those of you not around for it's original run, Charlie's Angels was not just a hit TV show, it was a phenomenon. Every magazine and rag magazine had a picture of "The Angels" on their covers. Incredibly popular, it all came down to Farrah and her 70's fly away hair, her dazzling toothy smile, her skateboarding pose wearing Addia's, her shampoo, her toothpaste, THE bathing suit poster of the century, and then she was gone. Exiting after only one season Charlie's Angels never was the same again. Bolstered by Jill's kid sister, Kris (Cheryl Ladd) and then others, Charlie's Angels never again climbed to the heights of sheer madness of its first season. Owing its popularity to episodes such as "Angels in Chains" and "Angels on Wheels," it fulfilled many a preadolescence male's fantasy and "Jiggle TV" was born. It may be a period piece today but it was a product of the fun, wacky 1970's that gave it birth.
