Kelly Garrett: [Addressing Jericho, lying to cover her shocked expression] Would you believe that old man just made a pass at me?
Jericho: [Chuckling] He did? Well, you shouldn't blame him too much. You see, it is our curse and a blessing always to be young inside.

"He's culling the bush!"
1 October 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

After a violent opening wherein a sunbather is shot and killed by an expert assassin (a scene that imitates the "Dirty Harry" movies), this episode from the freshman season of "Charlie's Angels" settles into a dry rut. A WWII Army buddy of Charlie Townsend's needs help from Bosley and the Angels after it's discovered all the men who served in an Allied Intelligence Unit are being systematically eliminated. The killer's name is Jericho (played very well by Fernando Lamas), and he's been hired by a budding politico to remove these men who may expose the skeletons in the man's military past. Sabrina poses as the girlfriend of Jericho's next target (she 'babysits' him, though it might be wise for her to keep him away from his apartment windows); Kelly is a hot dog vendor in the city park; and Jill milks Jericho for information under the guise of a model newly-arrived in L.A. This is really Farrah Fawcett-Majors' hour: reuniting with Lamas--her "Murder on Flight 502" co-star--the two actors share some innocent/intimate exchanges that are well-played (if ultimately pointless). Jill is supposed to be wracked with guilt over setting this man up, and we're naturally supposed to see her sensitive side; but Jericho is a cold-blooded assassin, after all, and Jill appears to fall for his 'gentlemanly' act very easily (he's actually quite menacing when threatening Bosley in a piano bar). The finale in the park is tense and well-directed, but this episode hardly shows off Kate Jackson or Jaclyn Smith at all (Smith is briefly seen in a bikini, which she quickly covers up with a robe). Critics at the time scoffed at just about everything Spelling-Goldberg put out, but this episode does feature some very decent acting (particularly by Lamas) and the cheesecake factor is kept to a minimum.
