What Mike Thinks

a writeup about Tom Mason of Jack and Mike from 1986

Shelley starred in her 3rd TV series Jack and Mike in 1986. She played Jackie, a journalist, who is married to Mike, a restaurateur. Mike was played by Tom Mason, who appeared as Shelley's boyfriend in the TV movie Kicks in 1985. The two had great chemistry in the telefilm which translated well in the series as well. In a writeup about Tom Mason in 1986, what he says of Shelley is that she "has really had a tough time. She deals with it beautifully." I guess he was talking about the Charlie's Angels stigma that Shelley was having a hard time shaking off. It was tough for all the Angels to shake off the image that made them famous and to be taken as a serious actress.
