Terrific title for a mediocre episode...the Angels suffering from a case of the blahs
26 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Potentially exciting but flatly-handled episode from the first season of Spelling-Goldberg's TV detective series concerns a hospital beset with an attempted rapist high on a new stimulating drug (Hycodroxcin!). The Angels get on board right away: Jill and Kelly posing as student nurses, Bosley as a patient--with an actual bone spur in his toe--and Sabrina as a reporter for a medical journal. Lots of fishy-acting suspects in this one (a doctor pushed to the brink of exhaustion, an intern with a Don Juan image, a patient who makes suspicious midnight phone calls), but the outcome is awfully routine. Director Bob Kelljan can't seem to get this scenario cooking, and the sloppy end results feature far too much overdubbed dialogue while Kelljan's camera searches in vain for somebody to focus on. Farrah Fawcett-Majors (with the fluffiest mane in television history) has a finely-tuned scene of sarcasm popping Don Juan's balloon, while Jaclyn Smith slips in and out of offices with a skeleton key that looks like a paper clip. Once again, Kate Jackson gets stuck with the detail work; frankly, if I worked at this hospital, I'd be wary of this stranger asking so many personal questions (Jackson's Sabrina also makes a near-disastrous goof, discussing confidential matters with Bosley while a suspect hides in the closet with the door ajar). Some good scenes here and there, but one poor suspect's vindication is glossed over blithely, while the chief hospital director (and the guy who hired the Angels in the first place) gets completely lost in the shuffle!
