I remember all the hype given the show. Okay - if you don't want to call it a "Charlie's Angels ripoff," you must at least acknowledge that the show would not have been greenlighted were it not for "Jiggle TV." I remember seeing the promo ad in TV Guide (is that even sold anymore?), with the main characters posed to look vibrant, girly-sexy and "commercial." Well - I'm GAY so of course I was into the whole "glamour-girls-on-an-adventure" show.
Well, the show may have been better-written, better-plotted than "Charlie's Angels," but it was nowhere as much fun.
That's why these "American Girls" are but a forgotten footnote in the history of 80s TV.
