"I won't dance...don't ask me"
19 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

The Angels infiltrate a dance studio that fronts for a blackmail partnership between the owner, the star dance teacher and a sleazy local detective. Farrah Fawcett-Majors' Jill poses as a disco instructor ("A little hustle, a little bump, and a little freelance," she says at her job interview); Jaclyn Smith's Kelly takes over for the detective once Charlie and Bosley get him on a plane to Washington, D.C.; and Kate Jackson's Sabrina poses as a suicidal heiress and dance student. Smith's real-life husband Dennis Cole is well-cast as Tony, the ladies' man dance teacher who gets Sabrina's alias in a hotel room for compromising photos. The writing here tries to be twisty and surprising, yet I'm not sure where the money to cover the assignment is actually coming from (not to mention the 10 G's Charlie is paying back to an elderly woman who got duped). Still, it's fun when Kelly gets to confront David Doyle's Bosley with a gun (Smith is excellent at feigning hardball) and John Van Dreelen is terrific as a debonair cheat (but not a liar!). This episode culminates in an abandoned bowling alley, and how much you wanna bet Farrah gets to throw a strike?
