"It's difficult to pick up the thread's of one's past..."
9 October 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

A menacing mercenary (armed with an Uzi and a pronounced limp!) attempts to eliminate the Angels one by one: he shoots at Kelly in her house, fires at Jill in the gymnasium where she coaches girls' basketball, and plants a bomb in Sabrina's water bottle. But the attacks were merely attempts; the ladies soon figure out their would-be assassin is only trying to scare them into hiding out at Charlie's mansion, where the hit-man's employer--an embezzler who spent 15 years in prison thanks to Mr. Townsend--will be waiting to exact his revenge. Dopey episode from the series' first season takes some lazy short-cuts (such as the slides of the Angels the hit-man possesses--all stills taken from previous episodes!--and a trip to Sabrina's father's beach house which is the same location normally used for Jill's house). We do learn that Kelly was raised in a Catholic orphanage and has never gotten over being abandoned by her parents (she gives an early heave-ho to doctor-boyfriend Tom Selleck in the installment's strongest sequence). It also turns out that Sabrina has an ex-husband, a cop who loves her but tends to smother her with his endless worrying. The finale--involving the hijacking of an innocent man's taxi cab--is distinctly undercooked, with boss Charlie apparently having no idea what's been going on at his house while away on business.
