Did You Know?


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 »

Angels In A Marathon Race
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sabrina,Kelly and Kris investigate the mysterious disappearance of Sylvia and Sally, two participants in a promotional marathon race in Marathon Angels.

A woman turns to Charlie for help after two men in masks kidnap her friend during a jog. She explains that they planned to enter Twilliger's Twenty, a fifteen-mile road race organized by a sports clothing manufacturer. He has agreed to pay twenty women $1000 each for completing the race, with a bonus prize of $5000 for the winner. The Angels and Bosley investigate and come across three participants and a male friend behaving in a very suspicious fashion. Another competitor hides a large snake in her backpack. The Angels ask Charlie to run background checks on Twilliger and Millicent Krail, a cynical TV reporter who accuses Twilliger of exploiting the young women in the race. The daughter of a wealthy sheik insists on running the race to experience what it is like to be an American. The men in the masks nab a second runner. Kelly and Kris try to enter the race to check things out, but two sisters have conveniently appeared to fill the vacant spots. They refuse an offer to let Kelly and Kris run in their place and give them the money. Kris and Kelly sneak into the race wearing fake numbers, and Kelly sees the van that may have been involved in the kidnapping. The trio that behaved mysteriously before the race was actually plotting with its manager to put on a song and dance "audition" for the cameras during an interview with Millicent. The woman with the snake gives an on-air plug for the Snake Pit restaurant. Charlie discovers that the Craft sisters have a criminal record, and that the van belongs to one of two men who was involved in a scheme with them during their time in the Navy. The kidnappers dump the missing runners off at a warehouse. The Craft sisters try to grab the sheik's daughter, but Kris stops them. Kelly chases the van back toward Sabrina and Bosley, and they force the men to lead them to the other girls. They had taken the runners whose numbers were directly before and after the sheik's daughter so that the Craft sisters could replace them. They planned to kidnap the woman and demand a large ransom.

Obviously,this episode involves another sport called marathon.Although there seems to be less scenes between the Angels and more scenes among the supporting characters,the story is decent and worthy of a Charlie's Angels' fan.
