Back to the Future with Charlie's Angels




I am old enough (cough cough) to remember the original Charlie's Angels series. Dig the clothes, the hair, the old school phones and other gadgets, and the general hokey atmosphere of this fun retro show!

Yes, I do remember that show! Didn't it star the same actress who played Sabrina on Charlie's Angels?

Do you remember the episode when Farrah single-handedly apprehended the bad guys speeding in their muscle car with only her skateboard! That's realism you just don't see anymore.

True, William, true.

My favorite Farrah-ism is when she used to whisper "Freeze" while holding out her gun in an oh so feminine way!

I love this blog! I am so glad I found you! You are fabulous.

When I was in grade school, I used to play "Charlie's Angels" with my 2 best friends on the playground, and I ALWAYS had to be Sabrina!

FYI--I just started a Retro Weight Watchers Blogging Project.... Reliving the 1972 program and recreating all of those old horrible recipes. It's a blast. hope you'll check me out!

I loveeed them!! Such a pity Farrah passed away the same day as Michael Jackson, so she didn't receive enough homage...

Thanks for posting -- this was a wonderful guilty pleasure of a show. And its theme song -- still one of the best! I was in a nightclub on the French Riviera some years back and the best club remix of the theme song came on -- brilliant stuff.
Have a great weekend,
Michael

Of course, I remember the show. I had Farrah's hairstyle. It never looked as good as hers, tho. Love your site. Come visit me, as I have the vintage phone on an older post you might like.
