Goofs

When the two kidnapped ladies are seen gagged inside a van, the positions of their gags keep changing. One moment the gags are over their mouths and then seconds later the gags between their lips. Then the gags go back over their mouths again. This pattern happens several times, back and forth without the kidnappers getting near the victims. See more »

Quotes

Kelly Garrett: You think the gate guard's gonna buy this? 20A and 20B?
John Bosley: Well, if he says anything, tell him you're part of an entry. You know, like in a horse race.
Kris Munroe: Yeah, but what if he doesn't know from entries? Then what do we do?
John Bosley: You're in running clothes, outrun him.

Entertaining light episode
17 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

When a woman training to run in a marathon race (where the winner will receive five thousand dollars, and every participant who crosses the finish line will receive one thousand) gets kidnapped, and another one disappears, Kris and Kelly take their place and join (in a manner of speaking) the race to find out what is going on. One of the lightest, most colorful "Charlie's Angels" episodes, with all sorts of weird stuff going on: kidnappers with Halloween masks, rich Arabs, a hostile TV reporter, a lady with a pet snake, three women apparently hiding guns, two sisters that simply MUST take part in the race no matter what, a run through a Hollywood studio, and more. But don't worry, all these disparate elements come together by the end. "Marathon Angels" does perhaps have a tad too much running footage, but it also has one of the smartest lines of the entire series: "She's jogging her memory!". *** out of 4.
