Here´s another one from the "Memorable Shows of the 70s" list. But there are more reasons to watch this than the lovely ladies. The scripts were actually really good detective/crime stories without the goofy stuff that oftentimes goes along with shows from that period. Yes, there are the usual shows that represented period trends (disco, roller skates and stuff) but those were the times. On the other hand there were, as I said, good scripts that at times even reminded me of the A-Team albeit softer and less dysfunctional. Towards the end the stories became a bit repetitive, again that´s something I expereinced a lot in other shows from that time. If you consider what went on behind the scenes with the constant changes of the lead cast one might wonder the show went 100+ episodes. It was number 1 at one point. Personally, I hadn´t seen anything past the 3rd season until now and I must admit I can see why the show dropped in ratings. Shelley Hack was a miscast in my eyes. She couldn´t produce a decent smile even if her life depended on it. She never seemed the gel with the other two and looked uneasy and out of place most of the times. It got better towards the end of the season but she was gone then and I didn´t mind at all. In came Tanya Roberts and althought here back story was weak she was an improvement over Hack. But she couldn´t turn things around as season 5 had some of the weakest scripts. So the ratings dropped lower and lower and they got cancelled.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
