If You've Got the Crime, We've Got the Time

I hate hidden characters in movies and shows. They always make me feel so manipulated by the producers.

Like Charlie's Angels. I used to watch the original show, from the 70s.

Why don't we ever see Charlie? What's wrong with him? Is he ugly? Does he have bad acne, or a crossed eye? Especially with those gorgeous women working for him, you'd think he'd prefer to be more than just a disembodied voice on a speaker.

And what about Mrs. Columbo? Why is she never revealed, and are we sure that Detective Columbo wasn't just some crazy doddering old man in a trench coat fantasizing that he had a wife at home waiting for him?

And remember the Bloodhound Gang on PBS? Why didn't we ever see Mr. Bloodhound? I think there was one episode in which you saw his shadow, but that was it. We couldn't even hear his voice.

Who would let a bunch of pre-pubescent kids run around unsupervised like that? Who cares if they solve mysteries and help people? It all seems very suspicious to me. Seems like Child Services would have shut down his ass pretty early on.
