Charlie's Angels - Consenting Adults #tvreview

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the tale of three beautiful former police detectives turned private detectives working for a faceless boss known as Charlie. The Angels are hired to look into the disappearance of the owner (Dick Dinman) of an antique store who disappeared shortly after his store was robbed. Delving into the case, the intrepid trio discover a computer dating scam involving a call girl (Laurette Spang) and her partners who rob locations while she keeps the mark entertained. That’s only half the story, however, as there’s also the matter of one specific stolen item that has great value for the missing man’s business associate (Alan Manson).

It’s Sabrina‘s (Kate Jackson) turn to be the hostage, as she gets caught snooping into the robbers (only to be saved by the timely arrival of a much more dangerous killer). “Consenting Adults” is notable for two things. First, the show breaks from the established pattern by not immediately sending the Angels undercover on a case. Although Jill (Farrah Fawcett) does pose as a call girl and both Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) and Bosley (David Doyle) pose as editors for a new sports magazine, these are short intelligence gathering exercises to uncover what happened to their client’s son and how it is related to a dangerous mobster and his smuggling operation. And second, the episode ends in an extended action sequence featuring Jill showing off her notable skateboard skills (with the help of a stunt woman).
