Charlie's Angels - Angels on a String TV review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police officers turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. “Angels on a String” is a Sabrina (Kate Jackson) episode as the trio’s all-expenses-paid getaway-weekend takes an unexpected after Sabrina meets her idol (Theodore Bikel) and determines something is wrong by the man’s odd behavior the next day. Jackson’s full-on fangirling is cute as pie, while the plot also allows for a goofy disguise as she stands in as the gala’s worst waitresses. The episode does feature a twist as the Angels come to believe the political leader is being pressured because his son has been kidnapped, the truth is far more complicated as in involves a double and a public murder plot.

While the con woman isn’t the source of the robberies, her silent partner (Rene Auberjonois) is, and he has found a way to hypnotize his subjects to both make the seances more dramatic and to instruct his victims into delivering high-priced jewelry to him. While the woman’s seances are laughable, her partner’s use of hypnotism is anything but.
