| "I have the feeling one of us is gonna get to play call-girl..."
This episode of Aaron Spelling's "Charlie's Angels", only the tenth show of the program's first season, already knew how to exploit Farrah Fawcett-Majors' appeal to budding male (and female) teenagers: put her on a skateboard and have her roll for her life! The Angels are assigned to the case of a missing man, an antiques dealer and sometime-mama's boy, who was also the unwitting victim of a prostitution/robbery racket. All three of our girls get a chance to shine here: Jaclyn Smith gently shakes down a bartender for vital info (just after ordering tequila with lime salt!); Kate Jackson climbs over a barbed-wire fence and into an industrial yard, only to be taken hostage by the two goons who pull off the robbery schemes; and Farrah, well, she aids in the nabbing of a prized racehorse and then outruns the nutcracker-wielding villain on her trusty skateboard. Sure, it's '70s kitsch, and not without flaws (the biggest lapse comes when Jill and Sabrina pick up the racehorse, with the horse's maniacal owner apparently nowhere in sight; they return to the office and call him, and he's right there on the property!). Still, the dialogue is sometimes fun (Farrah to prostie Laurette Spang: "Your name isn't Tracy. It rhymes with Stacy and Macy and all those other JIVE names hookers pick up!"). The repartee between the Angels ultimately holds this episode (and dozens of others) together, and when Bosley gets involved it's usually a hoot.
