Even though 'Angels' featured empowered women, it seems they never made a move until Charlie gave them the go-ahead. Charlie was often shown from the back of the head (another actor subbed for Forsythe) surrounded by bikini-clad women.
John Forsythe is best known for two iconic roles on television, only one of which included his appearance. On 'Charlie's Angels,' the hit ABC jiggle-cop show of the 1970s, Forsythe was the voice of Charlie Townsend, the man who hired Kelly, Sabrina and Jill as investigators in the Townsend detective agency.
A roundup of TV people from in front of the camera and behind the scenes who have passed away.
- Shirl Conway: She was one of the leads in the 60s series The Nurses (she played head nurse Liz Thorpe). She also appeared in episodes of Route 66, Caesar's Hour, The Defenders, and other shows and movies. She died earlier this month at age 90. (That's her on the right in the pic.)
It's Father's Day! Your wife and kids let you sleep late, and then presented you with a lovely breakfast. You took a leisurely shower, read an entire issue of Maxim on 'the throne' (you know what I mean!) and now you're comfortably snug in the recliner that faces your new 50-inch plasma television, with built in HDTV digital recorder. That's the one that your wife bought with the change she saved from the grocery money (no wonder you were eating tofu burgers the last few months).
So, what are you watching? Perhaps you're tuned into the U.S. Open or maybe the World Cup Championships. Or, you may be watching your favorite baseball team play on FOX, ESPN, or one of your digital cable (or satellite) channels. If you're not into sports, you may be watching a favorite show or DVD, such as Father Knows Best, Bachelor Father, Father Murphy, The Courtship of Eddie's Father, Wait Till Your Father Gets Home or Make Room For Daddy or Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy. Then again, if the family is out of the house, you may be watching porn.
So, let us know what's on your moving picture machine. And, if you did get a 50-inch HDTV plasma television, please let us know; we at TV Squad would like to come over, friend.
