It’s back to the 1970s again, and we refresh your memories with “Charlie’s Angels.”

The Aaron Spelling-produced series about a trio of gorgeous female detectives working for an unseen boss was such a ratings smash in its 1976 TV-movie debut that it became a near-instant pop culture phenomenon, surviving multiple cast rotations. That original cast was Jill Monroe (Farrah Fawcett), Sabrina Duncan (Kate Jackson) and Kelly Garratt (Jaclyn Smith). Later angels were Kris Monroe (Cheryl Ladd), Tiffany Welles (Shelley Hack) and Julie Rogers (Tanya Roberts). Magazines and posters of them flew off store shelves, with Fawcett’s perky swimsuit pinup being one of the most iconic posters of all time.
