Charlie's Angels - The Big Tap-Out television 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. An old friend of Charlie’s hires the Angels to help catch a thief and gambler who the police haven’t been able to stop. Step one in the plan is to force Roy David (Richard Romanus) is to push the gambler into betting all of his last big score. Sabrina (Kate Jackson) and Bosley (David Doyle) are able to take half of his money through a sure bet at the racetrack leaving Jill (Farrah Fawcett) to help get him to bet the other half at a casino while also dropping plans for a sure-fire robbery into his lap.

Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) doesn’t get a role until the very end, as an innocent bystander who accidentally spoils everything just when David thought he had gotten away with the biggest score of his life. The episode is noteworthy for the underhanded methods the Angels use to entrap a villain, including helping to arrange the outcome of a horse race and stacking the deck at the blackjack table with their own dealer (Tony Giorgio) as well as some humorous guest-appearances in a gambling expert (Bert Remsen) and a middle-aged couple at the blackjack table. The episode doesn’t end with a report to Charlie, instead the Angels gloat a bit allowing their mark to fully realize he’s been had.
