Successful "darker" episode
19 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

A generally successful - and fairly rare - excursion of "Charlie's Angels" into giallo territory, "The Sandcastle Murders" deals with a serial killer who seems to target young, blonde, blue-eyed girls. When he strikes too close to home, in both the physical and the emotional sense of the expression, the Angels take it upon themselves to stop him, even though nobody has actually hired them to do so. The plot turns out to be very similar to an early season 1 episode, "Night Of The Strangler", and the killer's identity is rather predictable after a point, but this episode contains some of the most ambitious and cinematic camera shots of the series up to that point, as well as another (after those in "Angel Baby") extremely well-acted dramatic moment for Cheryl Ladd, who also gets the most tense action sequence. Oh, and despite the beach setting, don't expect much in the way of eye candy, the sky is grey and the weather is cold. *** out of 4.
