Show generally

Continuity mistake: There is a mistake in the opening of Season 2 and Season 3. When Charlie says "I took them away from all that and now they work for me", we see Kelly, Sabrina and Kris meeting in front of the Police Department. That is not possible: Kelly and Sabrina attended the Police Academy in Los Angeles, while Kris was in San Francisco. Kelly and Sabrina didn't even know that Kris had graduated from the Police Academy. (00:00:25)

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Pilot Episode: The Angels have gathered and the slideshow with the mission briefing is starting. Kate Jackson turns around and puts her glass next to the ink stamp, but when the desk is shown at an angle from the front displaying projector, Bosley and the guy with the horrible 'do that won't be in the rest of the series, then the glass is not present.

Angels in Chains - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene in the Sheriff's car, after the Angels choke the Sheriff and Deputy, they lose control of the car. It goes off the road and a ramp is seen, hidden by some trees, that the car goes off to end up in the swamp.

Angels in Chains - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After the chase in the potato truck, the Angels are missing the handcuffs around their wrists. But they can't have removed them: they didn't have a key, they only removed the cuffs from the connecting chains, and after they cut off the chains, they were in the truck until they pulled over.

Angels in Chains - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: After the Angels escape the Sheriff's car, they run to a barn. They spot a truck with the back loaded above the cab, with potato boxes. They steal the truck and when they pull out from beside the barn, the truck only has half the amount of boxes. No boxes can be seen higher than the sides of the truck. They don't pull out quick enough for the boxes to fall off.

Angels in Chains - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During the scene where the Angels are being driven out into the desert to be killed, they are chained together. They reach over the front seat and choke the Sheriff and Deputy. In the close up shot, they pull their heads back with the chains. The Sheriff's hands go up in the air. In the long shot, the person driving and passenger are sitting normally and steering the vehicle.

Target: Angels - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Jill and Kelly hijack a cab to stop the killer from bombing Charlie's cab. On the way back to the mansion they pass Charlie's cab and almost run into a large truck. They miss the truck, but Charlie's cab hits it head on, doing some serious damage to the cab's front end. After they stop the killer, Charlie's cab arrives and now has no damage.

The Killing Kind - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Bosley is speaking to Sabrina from the agency. He is using a white phone receiver. Sabrina asks him to run the plates for a vehicle. Bosley picks up a red phone receiver. He then speaks to Sabrina using the white phone. She tells him to call the highway patrol and hangs up. Bosley then picks up the red phone, but proceeds to use the white phone's keypad to make the call to the highway patrol. (00:32:55)

Consenting Adults - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Ernesto is wearing a red shirt and a brown jacket. The sleeves of the jacket are quite high up the arm, so that the sleeves of the shirt are visible. In the following close up shot, the sleeves of the jacket are not reversed, so the sleeves of the shirt are completely covered. (00:37:05)

Consenting Adults - S1-E10

Other mistake: Jill is riding a skateboard and she holds a little black bag in her left hand. In one shot, Jill's hand is empty and the next she is holding it again before throwing it at Kelly. (00:45:00)

The Blue Angels - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: Sabrina is sharpening a pencil in her office at the police department. She wears two rings: one on her left little finger and one on her left ring finger (long shot). In a subsequent long shot, the ring on the ring finger has disappeared. (00:05:35 - 00:06:50)

Angels on Ice (1) - S2-E3

Audio problem: The Angels are in Max's office. Kris says, "Jill skates like a pro and I get this assignment and all the bruises." When she says "all the bruises," her lips are not moving. (00:19:20)

Circus of Terror - S2-E7

Character mistake: The German dialogue between the ringmaster and the knife-thrower makes sense, but the words are spoken in a very awful way - hardly learned by heart and so wrongly pronounced, No German talks like that. (00:20:47 - 00:21:09)

Trivia: David Doyle plays John Bosley in this series. The surname Bosley was an in-joke reference to the fact that Doyle was often misidentified as Tom Bosley, who played Howard Cunningham in "Happy Days".

More trivia for Charlie's Angels

Answer: After going through a number of cast changes that failed to improve the show's slumping ratings, Tanya Roberts' character was added as "street-wise" former model. This was probably an effort to give a different and edgier character dimension to the show.
