Charlie's Angels - Lady Killer television review

Today’s Throwback Thursday post takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. Hugh O’Brian guest-stars as a Hugh Hefner-style magazine and club owner who hires Townsend Investigations to look into the murder of two models. While Jill (Farrah Fawcett) goes in undercover as a waitress and model, Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) becomes the lounge’s new singer, and Sabrina (Kate Jackson) steps in as their client’s “old friend.” The episode’s mystery appears to come to a close with ten minutes still remaining as the Angels uncover the sinster machinations of their client’s longtime partner (Alan Fudge). However, after Jill is attacked later that night it becomes apparent that the killer is still at large.

Charlie's Angels - To Kill an Angel television review

Today’s Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. While taking an autistic boy to an amusement park, Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) is accidentally shot by young Skip (Dennis Dimster) after he finds the gun used in a recent murder. As Skip runs off, and an unconscious Kelly is rushed to the hospital, it falls on Jill (Farrah Fawcett), Sabrina (Kate Jackson), and Bosley (David Doyle) to piece together events as they start a search for the traumatized Skip who wanders around the city collecting an assortment of trinkets for his fallen friend (just like in the story Kelly told him). From the outset of Kelly losing Skip at the amusement park and then accidentally get shot, “To Kill an Angel” offers a serious tone throughout. In fact, the only time the Angels crack a smile is when Jill and Sabrina are able to catch one of the killers inside a carnival ride.

Charlie's Angels - Target: Angels television review

Today’s Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. John Horn guest-stars as a hitman sent after the Angels. After unsuccessful attempts on each of the women’s lives, the team decides to fake Sabrina‘s (Kate Jackson) death in hopes of luring out the killer. What the Angels learn, almost too late, is that the mercenary wasn’t hired to kill them but only to put them in enough danger that it might draw out his employer’s true target: Charlie himself. The ruse almost succeeds, but the Angels uncover the truth just in time to save Charlie (even if the makeshift plan invovles stealing an taxi that gets blown-up on Charlie’s driveway). Unfortunately for the Angels, success means barely missing their chance for the group’s first in-person meeting.

Charlie's Angels - Angels in Chains television review

Today’s Throwback Tuesday post takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. To find out more about what happened to a young woman who went missing after being held on questionable charges in a rural county prison, Kelly (Jaclyn Smith), Jill (Farrah Fawcett), and Sabrina (Kate Jackson) get themselves arrested. What they find is a corrupt sheriff (David Huddleston) framing attractive young women and railroading them into prison without a trial. Once in the women’s prison, the ladies are put to hard work in fields, forced to deal with creepy guards (including Anthony James and Mary Woronov), and then dolled up for friends and suppliers of the prison to help “work off” their sentence.
