Desertman8422 August 2013
Warning: Spoilers
In Hawaii, the Kelly,Kris and Julie get word that an assassin has been hired to kill an envoy from a peace-keeping organization who is scheduled to speak at the convention center in 48 hours.Lt. Torres appears at the Angels' patio table and asks for Julie's help in identifying a member of the Red Circle terrorist group whose shooting she witnessed while on vacation in Mexico City years earlier. Torres believes the same assassin is coming to Hawaii to fulfill another contract, and needs Julie to come to the airport in order to help catch him. Kelly, Kris and Bosley tag along.After the case is wrapped up, everyone congratulates Julie and praises her for a job very well done . Even Charlie says that she's one of the fastest learners he's ever seen.

It is interesting to note that this is the episode that actually make Julie Rogers becomes within the caliber of both Kelly and Kris as a private detective. Yeah, it's the first real case she helped solve since To See an Angel Die and Angels of the Deep wherein she was only part of the team and undergoing training.Anyway,this is one great episode that the fans of Tanya Roberts will surely enjoy.

Humdinger in paradise!

Warning: Spoilers
Fears of a lame duck final season, begone! The Angels help the police I.D. and apprehend a terrorist assassin, whom they must suss out from amidst a package tour of...resort singles! Yes, absolutely yes. The writing is sharp enough that, even with the unfair advantage of knowing that the killer must be among the recognizable guest stars, most audience members will be chasing red herrings. And oh, what herrings! How about Lyle Waggoner (THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW, WONDER WOMAN) frolicking in the surf one day, then found floating tits up in it the next? Or Randolph Mantooth (EMERGENCY!) as a reclusive doctor? Toss in Barbi Benton (DEATHSTALKER) as the resort entertainment director, and Keye Luke, whose KUNG FU experience doesn't help him escape a hand-to-hand beatdown from Kel! Plus Carol Lynley (THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE, eleven FANTASY ISLANDs), cracking an all-boys club with charm and grace. The ride goes on and on. If you're not careful, your laughter will too.
