Next time I do Nostalgia Week I may just have to include a look back at some of the worst telly too.
This morning Jackie Henderson, aka Jackie O reflected on Seven’s 2002 series Undercover Angels in which she joined Bardot singer Katie Underwood and actress Simone Kessell as “Thorpie’s Angels,” sent on feelgood missions by a very young Ian Thorpe.
Sydney Morning Herald TV writer Ruth Ritchie even declared it “the worst show in the history of the world” ahead of it running for just 11 episodes.
“I refused to watch that. It was the worst show ever made,” Kyle Sandilands agreed.
“It wasn’t great … Thorpie was supposed to be Charlie and we were his Angels, we’d be like ‘Hiii Thorpie!’” Jackie O said.
Jackie O then revealed a bad day of filming, cleaning out a man’s messy garage in Mount Druitt.
“There I am in my little white jumpsuit, trying to look like a 70s Farrah Fawcett. We’re like, ‘We’ve got a little surprise for you Shane …’
“We open up the garage door and he says, ‘What the f*** have you done with all me shit?’”
Just quietly, Jackie O has more than a few contenders in this field.
Cmon, how can you not love / hate this opening title sequence?
