FIGHTING ANGELSYour complete guide, analysis and ranking of fighting ability on Charlie’s Angels
You have to give the sexy Julie Rogers credit: she started and finished her Angel career as a serious ass kicker. In her debut episode, Julie rode on the hood of the bad guy’s car, waited till he crashed, then picked up a board lying on the ground and smacked him with it. That’s ass kicking – no wonder they hired her.
She kept on fighting throughout her tenure, culminating in a merciless performance in the series’ most impressive combat episode, Attack Angels. Be it client, bad guy, or fellow Angel, nobody was off-limits from an evil, aggressive hypnotized Ms Rogers. She beat Kelly Garrett down, and no one can take that away from her. (This made her the only Angel to beat and be beaten by other Angels!)
But, after considering the impression left by Attack Angels, it’s hard to believe that Julie actually has the worst fighting record of all, having failed in a solid half of her altercations. However, she still deserves kudos even in that, because she never backed down from a fight – every time she lost, she went down fighting, even when greatly outnumbered (Married), hypnotized (Attack), or underwater (Deep).
Julie’s the only Angel who’s been in trouble with the law for fighting, and you can tell from her style that this ain’t her first rodeo. A battle with Julie is a free-for-all – kicks, punches, slaps, stomps, chops, props, anything goes, and we have a funny feeling some of those pre-Angel street fights may have been dirty.

HONORS FOR JULIE
BEAT A FELLOW ANGEL
Attack Angels brings us a hypnotized Julie beating down anyone in her path - including Kelly, who she brings to her knees with a couple of vicious karate chops.
BEAT BY A FELLOW ANGEL
Not a moment later, Julie also receives the honor of getting her butt kicked by a fellow Angel - Kris comes to Kelly's aid and subdues her with some pseudo-kung fu and a kick to the gut.
SEASON 5'S WORST FIGHTER
She may be a bundle of dynamite, but the numbers show that both veteran Angels still outfought their streetwise protégé in the series' final year.
We can't believe this either - statistically, Julie ranks last in fighting ability out of all the Angels. That said, we still wouldn't wanna go up against her in a street fight any time soon.
