Angels As Spinsters
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While vacationing in Arizona with Kris's family, Sabrina,Kelly and Kris learn that gangsters have taken all the women in the small town hostage in exchange for one of their strongmen in Angels On Vacation.

The Angels and Bosley head for Paylon, Arizona for a few days of rest and relaxation. Shortly before their arrival, Kris's uncle Paul--the town sheriff--is taken away at gunpoint. The townspeople become frantic when Kris begins inquiring about her uncle's whereabouts. Someone busts the headlights on Bosley's car, and the hotel claims to have lost their reservation. When the only other hotel in town claims to have no vacancies, the Angels realize that the residents are trying to drive them away. Sabrina notes that there do not seem to be any women in the town. They head for the home of Kris's aunt Lydia, the mayor, in search of answers. A deputy and another man follow them and begin shooting. Kelly kills both men during the shootout. A panicked Lydia explains that the dead men had killed the real deputy and taken his uniform. They are part of a group that has taken Paul and all of the women in town hostage, hoping to exchange them for a federal prisoner who was recently captured in the nearby mountains. If the other men do not hear from their cohorts in a few hours, they will kill everyone.The Angels dress as spinsters to attack the gangsters and free the captured women.

This is an interesting episode.Despite the fact that is a rehash of the first episode of the second season entitled Angels In Paradise wherein the Angels have to help free a prisoner and when Angels get involved with a case during their vacation,we get to see Charlie's private detectives in a "glamorous" undercover - spinsters.LOL We all know that the show is part of Jiggle TV wherein we get to see the Angels particularly Kelly and Kris in bikinis,this episode is peculiar due to the fact that they are all covered up from neck down.Also,we get to see them act as conservative women who aren't willing to show any skin.
