The Geek Files: Charlie's Angels

"Pusher" returns- with more terrifying details of her lifelong TV addiction. There may even be an admission that she has written some fan fic- a major TVGS no-no. Sanctions may be in order.

TNT once had a stroke of genius: The Charlie's Angels marathon. Twelve hours, twelve episodes, one night of my life I will never get back.

One mention to my twin sister and our best friend and it was game time - 8pm, our house, Saturday night. Farrah Fawcett wings in place, we were giddy by midnight and absolutely bonkers by 4am. We actually wrote our own episodes- many of which were better than what we had just watched (at least when read on a sleep-deprived sugar high).

Our creative process was interrupted every time a new episode started or commercial break came. At these points the tinkle of a bell would sound (when the silhouetted logo appeared) and the challenge was for each of us to assume a position from that logo. Oh how I dreaded the times when I was too slow and had to be the stupid girl with the karate chop hands instead of the cool chick with a gun on her arm or, better still, the huge one in the middle with that big ass walkie talkie. Now that's hot.

But over the years I've practiced my moves and whenever a coffee mug is stirred and the spoon hits the inside of the cup, I pounce into position! (Go ahead. Try it. Stir your mug and strike a pose.)

Pusher's "The Geek Files: Memoirs of a TV Addict" appears every Monday.
