Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Kris is concerned when her friend goes missing.

    This episode is a reasonably good example of Charlie's Angels. In a twist, its Kris who is the client when her friend disappears after mentioning she saw something bad. They find her murdered on the beach and it seems the Sandcastle Killer is at it again. With an aggressive police detective, a overly-friendly security guard, a beach voyeur and marry-for-your-money cosmetics manager all in the picture - there seems to be many suspects. It is Sabrina who figures out who could be the killer but first they have to stop the attack on Kris at her beachhouse. The chase scenes where Bosley (off all people!) shoots the mastermind killer and Sabrina jumps into the water to rescue the killer from drowning is well done. The last scenes with the Angels' gang on the carousel are corny but its fun to watch the actors having a good time.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: As Kelly and Sabrina are standing by the door to leave Kris' house, Kelly is holding a small, mostly deflated orange balloon. After Kris says, 'Let me look around the beach for just a few minutes. She really needs the money,' the camera shows all three Angels and Kelly's orange balloon is significantly larger.

    • Goof: As Kris is talking to Dave Christopher, the camera crew can be seen in the reflection of his sunglasses.

    • Goof: When Melissa enters the game room at the Pier, Ovie is propped up on the carousel horse. As the carousel starts to spin, he eventually falls off the horse. When he was on the horse, his eyes were open but once he fell off and lying on the ground, his eyes were closed.
