Preview- Charlie’s Angels: The Complete Collection (Bluray)

All five seasons of the original Charlie’s Angels TV show are coming to bluray. The show follows Sabrina Duncan (Kate Jackson), Jill Munroe (Farrah Fawcett), and Kelly Garrett (Jaclyn Smith) have graduated from the police academy in Los Angeles, California. Despite proving their capability during training, all three have subsequently been assigned to less that satisfactory positions (as seen in the opening credits and never explained with a pilot episode) -a meter maid, office worker, and crossing guard, respectively. They are recruited to work for the Charles Townsend Agency as private investigators.

Their boss, Charlie Townsend (John Forsythe), who nicknames them “Angels”, is never viewed revealed to the audience and is usually seen from the back, mostly in the company of beautiful women. Charlie gives the Angels and his associate John Bosley (David Doyle) their assignments via a Western Electric speakerphone.

In season two, San Francisco police academy graduate Kris Munroe (Cheryl Ladd) takes the place of her older sister, Jill, in the trio; in the fourth season, Tiffany Welles (Shelley Hack), a Boston police academy graduate, takes Sabrina’s place; and in the fifth and final season, model-turned-private-investigator-in-training Julie Rogers (Tanya Roberts) fills the void after Tiffany’s departure when she is granted a temporary private detective license.
