Charlie's Angels - Bullseye 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. Murder on the firing range sends the Angels undercover in Women’s Army Corps. While Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) and Jill (Farrah Fawcett) show up as new recruits, Sabrina (Kate Jackson) takes on the role of a nurse. Even if the episode hadn’t started with revealing the killer to the audience, the sadistic Drill Sgt. Billings (L.Q. Jones) is the obvious suspect. He doesn’t take to kindly to people snooping through his office as Kelly learns when he sabotages her gas mask during a training exercise. Later, Jill learns the same lesson when she is taken prisoner by the soldier as his ticket off the base.

Trouble with the care of the patient uncovers both Billings’ accomplice, the far less dickish Dr. Conlan (Robert Pine), and the plot of selling expired drugs to stock the Army’s medical emergency transports and pocketing the profits. Aside from Kelly and Jill in basic training, and Sabrina dressed as a nurse for most of the episode, “Bullseye” is also notable for revealing Kelly’s sharpshooting skills and forcing poor Bosley (David Doyle) to search through hog slop in search of pieces of a murder weapon hidden in the “edible garbage” sold by the Army to local farmers. Not only does Kelly’s marksmanship help save Jill, but the trio (in a stolen jeep) are able to prevent the murder from fleeing the base in small aircraft which meets a fiery end on the runway.
