Did You Know?

Though many believe the detective series "Vega$" (1978) is a spin-off of "Charlie's Angels", Dan Tanna (played by Robert Urich) was not introduced here, but rather in a Pilot that was aired as an ABC TV Movie of the Week on Tuesday, April 25th, 1978 (five months before "Charlie's Angels" aired its third season opener on Wednesday, September 13th, 1978). The crossover was simply used to promote the debut of "Vega$" as an ongoing series (which itself debuted one week later on Wednesday, September 20th, 1978).See more »
Continuity: Sabrina gets a perm before going to Vegas, which comes and goes in all subsequent scenes. Kelly gets in her car to to visit Mr. Haines at the stock car racing, and arrives there wearing a completely different outfit.See more »

A Great Start For The Third Season, 30 August 2013

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When violent and suspicious deaths strike his closest friends, a casino boss hires Charlie's female private investigators.Sabrina,Kelly and Kris go undercover at the Tropicana Casino at Las Vegas in Angels In Vegas.

Frank Howell, owner of the Tropicana casino in Las Vegas, seeks the Charlie's help after two of his employees are killed. He mentions other mysterious happenings, and suspects that someone is out to get him. Sabrina poses as his assistant, and they quickly begin falling for each other. Kelly wins a spot in the chorus line and befriends Joan Wells, the dance captain and roommate of one of the victims, Mary Phillips. Kris gets a job as a backup singer for Marty Cole. He mentions that she bears a striking resemblance to his late wife. Someone in a black truck fires a shot at comedian Joey January. Frank believes that the incident was staged, as the disgruntled Joey is trying to use it to get out of his contract. The Angels must discover the culprit behind the series of mysterious murders before it's too late.

This 2-part adventure takes the Angels to Las Vegas.We get to see them involved in plot lines of their own wherein Sabrina falls in love with Frank Howell;Kris performs on stage; and Kelly gets a gig in a can- can.Aside from having Dean Martin as a special guest in it,we get to see a great story wherein the screenplay was excellent and the complexities of the case being solved by the Angels are difficult in the sense that there are not that many clues left in it.Obviously,this is one great 2- part episode and a great start for the third season.
