feminist angels!
8 November 2010 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

The most proactively feminist Angel episode ever. So ahead of its time that thirty years later, there's still no sign of...a fledgling female pro football league! Unless you count that new "lingerie" league...which, um, ain't quite Gloria Steinem. The Angels go undercover on an underdog team whose players are being terrorized. There's a fascinating character named Pokey (Garn Stephens) who set the dyslexic awareness movement back a decade or two, with her portrayal of a dyslexic character as a sweet, near-mongoloid idiot. There's a shower fight that's beyond classic, as Kelly comes to the rescue of Kris, who's being bullied by an amazon. Kelly and the amazon tear the place up, in the most physics-defying fight scene in TV history, as the amazon somehow gets her ass kicked without ever slipping out of the single towel she is wearing. Kris watches meekly, perhaps waiting to be mounted by the victor. Lordy lordy, are the men ever mincing idiots in this one. Sabrina tosses one of the most wounded duck practice passes in the history of sport, and is promptly recruited by the best team in the league. Can the Angels stop the baddies in time to lead the team to victory?? Tune in to find out.
