The original beautiful badass P.I.s — Kate Jackson (TV’s Scarecrow and Mrs. King), Jaclyn Smith (TV’s The District) and Farrah Fawcett (The Apostle) — return in Sony’s Charlie’s Angels: The Complete Series DVD set.
Containing 27 discs, the pack offers all episodes of the TV show’s five seasons, which ran from 1976 to 1981.
In the television series, Jackson, Smith and Fawcett play the original angels, but only Smith stayed for the show’s full run. When Fawcett left, Cheryl Ladd (TV’s Las Vegas) took over her spot, and when Jackson departed, her role was reinvented by Shelley Hack (Me, Myself and I) and then Tanya Roberts (That ’70s Show).
The actresses played private investigators who work for a man called Charlie (voiced by Dynasty‘s John Forsythe), solving crimes with Charlie’s liaison, Bosley, played by David Doyle (TV’s Fantasy Island). No matter how dangerous and difficult the situation, the angels always managed to use their smarts and fighting skills to take down the bad guys.
The Charlie’s Angels: The Complete Series DVD set includes the featurette “Angels Forever.”
DVD sets of the crime show’s first four seasons were released earlier, but the Complete Series package is the DVD debut of season five.
The 2011 TV series remake starring Annie Ilonzeh, Minka Kelly and Rachael Taylor, lasted only eight episodes, and that Charlie’s Angels: The Complete Series also is available on DVD.
