    Did you know that Jane Wyman, before she became Angela Gioberti Channing on Falcon Crest, was in a 1980 episode of Charlie's Angels called "To See an Angel Die," originally aired Nov. 30, 1980 on ABC in that show's fifth and final season? Her role was that of psychic Eleanor Willard.

    Yes, I've seen this episode a few times. Watching it, you kind of get the feeling that she wasn't a diva and just did what the role required. I recall one scene in which she did a bit of running and thought I couldn't imagine Angela Channing doing that.

    I've never seen it before, nor the larger Charlie's Angels series for that matter; I just got the Mill Creek DVD lot of it at the Wal-Mart in Simpsonville, and not having seen the larger series in depth before, I'll have to check out that episode and see what you're talking about.

    It's been a long time since I've seen the episode but I recall it was from one of the last seasons of Charlie's Angels when the show became a poor shadow of what it was with repetitive plots and actresses hired for their bodies rather than their acting ability. That said, it's was always fun seeing Jane Wyman on TV shows other than Falcon Crest.

    I heard about Jane being in Charlie’s Angels but have also not seen the episode. I must try and watch her show. Funny the time there was a psychic in Falcon Crest Angela threatened him with the after life. Then again he was dating Emma.

    They should have let Jane be the third angel after Kate Jackson left. She could have been just as bossy as Kate, and anything would have been better than Shelley Hack.

    Who is around Charlie's age and has her sights on other things. Angela would have for sure.
