I can remember when this was one of the hottest programs on TV. People tuned in all over the country to watch every week. The premise of the show is pretty cheesy by todays standards, and even the standards of the 70's to be honest. But it was a huge success regardless.
I was a little too young to remember much about the show. Other than the fact that Farah Fawcett was considered to be one of the most beautiful women in the country at the time. And I think that was a lot of the appeal of the show.
When you think about all the crime drama shows that popped up during the 70s; Chips, Starsky and Hutch, the Streets of San Francisco, and others, this show was by far a stretch of the imagination. But that did not matter to much of the general public back then. No matter how far out there the idea of 3 lovely women fighting crime might have been people tuned in, in droves.
