The Original Angels At Work
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Kris is mysteriously kidnapped, Jill Munroe returns to town to help locate her sister but soon discovers that she was the real target for a business mogul blaming her for his son's untimely death in Angel in a Box.

Kris goes to a Mexican restaurant to meet a potential client, but two men kidnap her. They shoot out Bosley's tires when he arrives and tries to help. A witness reports that the vehicle had advertising for a resort called Georgian Acres painted on the door. The witness had actually been promised money to lead the Angels to the resort; Kris's captors decide to kill him instead. The Angels receive a telegram that gives the impression that the kidnappers actually meant to nab Jill. Jill flies in from Montreal to help with the case. The foursome heads for the resort, with Bosley disguised as a Scottish golfing aficionado to hide his identity from the kidnappers. Bosley recognizes the tennis instructor as one of the men who grabbed Kris, so Jill tries to make time with him. Jill and Sabrina catch a man rummaging through Jill's room, and he drops his room key in his haste to escape. Sabrina poses as a maid to get into the man's room, and covertly snaps a photograph. She finds an address scribbled on a piece of paper next to a picture of Kris. Kelly and Sabrina drive to that location, and the man holding Kris orders his associate to follow and kill them. Sabrina realizes that the kidnappers have deliberately left them false clues to get them out of the way. She knocks out the man pursuing them, but the tennis instructor grabs Jill in the meantime. Bosley follows them to a gated house. Ruiz tells Jill that Anton Karazna arranged Kris's kidnapping. He is certain that his son Dino deliberately crashed his car during a race to kill himself because he was devastated by his break-up with Jill. Karazna made Jill believe she was the intended kidnap victim so that she would feel guilty. Jill insists that her split with Dino was amicable. She says that he crashed his car because he was a lousy driver; he had been a sensitive and poetic man forced to pursue macho activities in order to please his domineering father. Karazna plans to fly Jill and Kris to Mexico and kill them. Bosley, Kelly and Sabrina chase after Karazna's car.

This is one great episode wherein we see the original Charlie's Angels

  • Sabrina,Jill and Kelly - solve a case to help locate the kidnapped
Kris.Although some Cheryl Ladd fans may find it disconcerting,some fans would definitely find it nostalgic considering that we get to see the original Angels at work together again.This was interesting from beginning to end.It was well-written.Also,we get to see Kate,Farrah and Jaclyn renew their chemistry from season one.It would be noticeable in season four - in Farrah's last guest appearance - that the story of this episode will be rehashed this time with Jill Munroe being kidnapped while Kelly,Kris and Tiffany try to locate her.
