Storyline

Two Centerfolds from Tony Mann's Feline Club have been killed, so the Angels are called in to investigate. Jill draws the short straw (or pencil to be more precise) and gets to be a Feline cocktail waitress. Kelly joins the club as a singer (although she does in fact lip-sync) while Sabrina poses as Mann's latest flame (even though he usually only dates women under twenty). Written by The TV Archaeologist

Angels on the Prowl
1 October 2011 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Feline magazine and their chain of nightclubs are facing financial ruin--and a possible takeover bid by a slimy competitor--all because two of the models have been murdered (chloroform poisoning!). This hardly seems like the type of incident to ruin a company, but the publisher (Hugh O'Brian, doing a Hugh Hefner) believes so and hires the Angels to investigate (one would think the police would be more efficient at handling a double homicide!). Farrah Fawcett-Majors' Jill poses as a Feline waitress at the L.A. hot-spot, Jaclyn Smith's Kelly is the new singer at the club (lip syncing to a prerecorded tape!), while Kate Jackson's Sabrina gets the most interesting assignment: acting as the girl-happy publisher's latest squeeze (she even develops a little yen for him, male chauvinist or not). First season episode of the hit series is full of far-fetched attempts at action (including an exploding tennis ball followed by an exploding bed!), however the ladies are a lot of fun. The publisher's slimy partner unloads an entire clip shooting at Kelly atop an oil refinery, while Jill is attacked at home while sleeping. The twist finish is extremely creepy (reminiscent of "Play Misty For Me"), but the resolution at the tag shucks it all off like yesterday's business. This is the main reason why critics never took the show seriously: it didn't have the courage to see its stories through to a satisfying end, instead relying on breasts and legs and pearly white smiles.
