Charlie's Angels

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.

Circus of Terror - S2-E7

Plot hole: After Sabrina and Tarloff have finished their rehearsal, Kris is able to pick the real sword with no hesitation. There are still six swords left in the basket (one is real, five are fake). They all look the same, so how could Kris know the exact position of the real one? (00:43:30)

Show generally

Question: Why Is Tanya Robert a former model and not a cop? I've never read any explanation as to why.


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.
