9 minor goofs from Charlie's Angels

On Charlie's Angels, despite all the danger and action, the stars of the show nearly always appeared flawless. Whether the action followed Kelly Garrett, Kris Munroe, Jill Munroe, Sabrina Duncan, Tiffany Welles, or Julie Rogers, these Angels stamped out stereotypes while fighting crime in sunny California, and they barely chipped a nail when they did it.{seealso}

Or did they? We took a microscope to the glamorous detective show, examining extra-close all of the exciting capers that drove TV viewers out of the 1970s and into the 1980s with a lot of flash and fight. What we discovered were a handful of minor goofs and tiny flaws, including, yes, more than a few unpainted fingernails that stick out like sore thumbs in the chic world of Charlie's Angels.

So if you're enchanted with Charlie's Angels as they've returned to MeTV this summer, here are funny things to look out for, including errors with star characters, visual hiccups in high-intensity scenes and a couple times these Angels we all admired may not have always been as sophisticated as you likely first imagined watching the show the first time through.
