"Watch out for the devil..."
9 October 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Packed with plot, this episode from the first season of "Charlie's Angels" is absolutely fatigued by an onslaught of characters and dead-end trails, leading to underwhelming returns. The owner of a film processing lab in Los Angeles reluctantly hires the Angels after two masked thugs attempt to burn his most recent reels; Sabrina, Kelly, and Jill take an awful long time to realize their client is a pornographer, and a quick location shot in one of his naughty epics reveals dirty police detectives planting evidence at a murder scene. The ladies look lovely, as usual, but director Bill Bixby has them and faithful Bosley running around in circles checking out leads and interviewing investors. There's a funny scene with Jaclyn Smith pretending to be a dumb brunette who wants to be an actress, and Farrah Fawcett-Majors flirts openly with a hotshot D.A. who undresses her with his eyes ("Compliment noted," she tells him. "And accepted."). Kate Jackson gets stuck with the worst, most pointless bit: attempting to get information from a burly environmental revolutionary who screams at her, "It's the rape of the wheat!" Bixby manages to bring the episode to a decent close, but the majority of "Dirty Business" is boring talk. All work and no play puts the Angels out of business.
