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.

Jill is attacked twice in the episode (not counting the aggressive proposals she gets while working as a waitress in the club) both in her home and later in the apartment of the killer. The episode offers a late twist as Sabrina stumbles across the obvious suspect who the Angels have ignored throughout the investigation. Items to note: Jill lives on the beach and is adept at tennis, Kelly surprises her friends with her singing prowess (which is accomplished by Smith’s not-completely-convincing lip syncing), Scarecrow and Mrs. King‘s Martha Smith guest-stars as one of the previous victims, and Sabrina continues to demonstrate questionable taste in men.
