My main purpose in starting a thread about Charlie's Angels this week isn't to discuss the plot, which was...? What happened again? The Angels went undercover into a luxury mansion of supermodels who marry illegal alien criminals who need green cards. And somehow that morphed into a nefarious plot to kill the wife of the Russian President. Is that what happened?
No, my main purpose is to point out the following observation:
Charlie's Angels could be renamed The Beat Up Minka Kelly Show. (backofthehead.com) Last week, Minka Kelly was backhand slapped to draw blood from her mouth, strung up, and tortured by electricution. This week, Minka Kelly was shot in the arm. Geez. What happens next week?!
It's important to note that despite the lickings she takes, none of it stops Minka Kelly for even a second. She shrugs it all off and bounces right back to her quickly-becoming-trademark head tilting and surly snarls.

I think of it as a Dramady, the same way MASH seasons 6-11 were. An overall serious situation for the show (prison vs war) with some funny bits sprinkled in (the great chicken hunt vs crazy antics by Drs trying not to go mad in a stressful situation)....
