One of the most popular episodes from the legendary 1st season...
3 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised no one else has reviewed this, one of the most watched 1st season episodes of "Charlie's Angels" (Aaron Spelling was once quoted that he could keep re-running this show over and over and the ratings would never go down). Lauren Tewes (pre-"The Love Boat") hires the girls to locate her sister, who was railroaded into a prison work-farm by snarling baddies who operate a prostitution racket on the side. With a wonderfully cheesy supporting cast including Kim Basinger as an inmate (back in the day when she was a lip gloss model for magazines), lascivious Mary Woroonov as a warden named Maxine, and oily Anthony James as a guard, this one has great seedy flavor worthy of a theatrical feature, a tight direction, some tart, funny lines of dialog, and lots o' T&A.
