Did You Know?


This was David Ogden Stiers' only appearance in the show as his character of Scott Woodville was removed as it was deemed unnecessary for Charlie to have two male liaisons. See more »


At the conclusion of the case, Jill is hiding in the swamp (which is more like a pond) and at one point ducks underwater. Then she swims across it and gets out. When we see her on the other side, she is completely dry. See more »


Wilder: What'll we do with 'em?
Beau Creel: Well, we came to dig a grave, may have to make it a whole cemetery.

Excellent pilot episode to the long-running ABC detective series wastes no time in plunging the trio of Angels into danger and disguise. The missing owner of a large vineyard in Northern California is presumed dead, but the case has cooled without evidence. The owner's second wife and her foreman-lover have just a few days until the man's last will goes into effect, which the scheming spouse will benefit from unless her long-lost stepdaughter should happen to turn up and complicate legal matters; she does. Jaclyn Smith's Kelly handles the first part of the case with aplomb, at first pretending to be the missing heiress but then--after she's purposefully exposed as a fraud--claiming to be a mercenary after some $20 million hidden on the property. Kate Jackson's Sabrina also arrives under the guise of the rightful heir, with Farrah Fawcett-Majors' Jill in tow as her secretary. David Doyle as Bosley is actually second in command at Townsend Investigations, with most of the leg-work done by David Ogden Stiers (his character of Scott Woodville was jettisoned once the show got picked up, although he's a fine addition here). Tommy Lee Jones has a small part as a childhood friend of the elusive daughter, while Bo Hopkins and Diana Muldaur are perfect as the shady couple running the business. We learn a few interesting things about the Angels this first time out: Sabrina is an accomplished horse-rider, Kelly can ride a motorcycle, and Jill has a crush on boss Charlie (even though he only communicates with the ladies via telephone). Extremely well-written by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts, well-produced and with an exciting action climax in a swamp. Be sure to stay through the end-credits to hear Farrah's sexy come-on! Who wouldn't want more after this?
