YouTube Tuesday presents: Charlie's Angels Season Five
Charlie's Angels ran for five seasons. Four have been released on DVD. The first season was released way back in 2003 with the three original Angels--Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, and Jaclyn Smith. A year later, season two was released. This season Farrah had left and Cheryl Ladd joined the team. It would be another three years before season three would be released. The Angels didn't change, but it did have the return of Farrah.
It looked like season four or five weren't going to be released. The saving grace for season four was the fact that it contained three more episodes with Farrah returning. I like Farrah, but she (believe it or not) wasn't my favorite Angel. However, if anyone mentioned Charlie's Angels, the first person that came to most minds was Farrah Fawcett. It's great that season four was released, because I think most people were surprised that they liked Shelley Hack. For some reason, Shelley Hack got a lot of bad rap, but I always liked her and people can now see that season four was actually not a bad season because three years after season three was released, season four was finally released.
That was last year. Season five is the only one left to be released. The pros of this season: Tanya Roberts joined the team; five episodes were filmed in Hawaii allowing for the first time--three Angels in bikinis in the same scene; guest stars Christopher Lee, Jane Wyman, and Dack Rambo; and Julie attacking her fellow Angels. The cons of this season: shortened season with only 16 episodes due to the writer's strike that year; three of the worst episodes of the series happened in season five; guest stars Lyle Waggoner, Sonny Bono, and Dan Haggerty; and no appearances of Farrah Fawcett.
The Charlie's Angels Wiki features three great videos related to season five to whet your appetite.
First is a trailer he made for Season Five:

I'm afraid that it will be 2012 before it will be released at the rate they're going and if all the predictions of the world ending that year, I would at least like to revisit this final season before it does.
