Thank God it’s Friday! We close the work week with another look at the Charlie’s Angels episode “Angels on Ice,” first gliding into homes across America on September 21, 1977. Timothy and his fellow gang members, including Lee Delano (leaning across Tim), are enjoying a communal meal and an awkward belly dance by Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) at a Middle Eastern restaurant.
Here’s wishing you all a great weekend! Visit your local Middle Eastern dining establishment, stuff yourselves with yummy food and tip your belly dancers generously! Unlike Ms. Smith, they are professionals. (No offense, Jaclyn.)
Today we revisit Timothy’s vaguely Russian/Middle Eastern gang leader in “Angels on Ice,” the Charlie’s Angels episode that first aired on September 21, 1977. He has just come to the realization that the rather awkward belly dancer who has been entertaining him and his gang is, in fact, that pesky spy girl Kelly (Jaclyn Smith).
Timothy built up quite a roster of guest appearances on television during the 1970’s – Charlie’s Angels, CHiPs, Baretta, Ellery Queen, the list goes on. Each one was given the unmistakable Carey treatment; he never just walked through a role, no matter how small. He once said that each role he played could very well be his last, so why not strive to make it his best? Why not, indeed.
It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for the Video of the Week! This week it’s a compressed version of the Charlie’s Angels episode “Angels on Ice,” a two-parter that first aired on September 21, 1977. Timothy is the leader of a Russian (I think?) gang out to sabotage an ice show for a little international political intrigue. Jaclyn Smith also attempts to bellydance. Don’t quit your day job, Jaclyn.
Whoever decided that Tim’s rather exotic-looking character could pass as a security guard is to be commended for thinking outside the box.
