Staggeringly good
13 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is Jaclyn Smith's shining hour in season 4 - only her work in "Avenging Angel" can compare. A straightforward dramatic episode with barely even a hint of humor in it, "Angel's Child" deals with child abuse - a touchy topic which you wouldn't see handled so directly in earlier seasons of the show. And what's more, the man who is abusing his own son is a veteran police sergeant that Kelly is working with in her latest case. Simon Oakland delivers a powerful performance in that role, and I nominate the scenes where Kelly, who is especially sensitive to child issues having grown up as an orphan herself, confronts him about what's been going on as perhaps Jaclyn Smith's best acting moments in the series. The other Angels and Bosley are barely involved in this episode, but they're useful when it matters. "Child's Angel" belongs in the Top-5 of the entire series, in my opinion. ***1/2 out of 4.
