Trap a thief to catch a murderer
23 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

After a string of darker "Charlie's Angels" episodes ("The Sandcastle Murders", "Angel Blues", "Little Angels Of The Night"), the timing was right for a lighter episode, which is what "The Jade Trap" is. The angle here is that the Angels have two deal with two different criminals, a cat burglar and a murderer; another angle is that the cat burglar has an unusual accomplice - his own mother! The title refers to Charlie's treasured jade collection that the Angels use as bait to trap the burglar, after realizing that he is the only person who can identify the murderer. Cheryl Ladd gets the most broadly comedic role, as a Swedish widow-millionairess ("until I meet my fifth hoos-band, what do I do?"). And there is a distinguished guest cast as well. *** out of 4.
