Charlie's Angels - The Seance TV review

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. Investigating a string of robberies leads the Angels back their client’s (Gertrude Flynn) spiritual advisor (Carole Cook). While the con woman isn’t the source of the robberies, her silent partner (Rene Auberjonois) is, and he has found a way to hypnotize his subjects to both make the seances more dramatic and to instruct his victims into delivering high-priced jewelry to him. While the woman’s seances are laughable, her partner’s use of hypnotism is anything but.

Sabrina (Kate Jackson) and Jill (Farrah Fawcett) are both cast in the role of assistants this time around. This leaves Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) to be put in harms way when the villain sees through her disguise and, fearing capture by the police, implants dangerous suggestions while playing on childhood trauma that nearly leads to the death of two Angels. The episode is notable for exploring a bit more of Kelly’s past offering Jaclyn Smith some dramatic scenes (including the on where Kelly nearly kills both herself and Jill).
