14. Sammy Davis Jr. Kidnap Caper TV-NR CC

Kidnapers stalk Sammy Davis Jr., so Sabrina, Kelly and Kris are hired to protect him in "The Sammy Davis Jr. Kidnap Caper," guest starring Sammy Davis Jr. in twin roles as himself and as a guy who looks just like him, on "Charlie's Angels." The Angels become Sammy's bodyguards after an attempt has been made to snatch the superstar from the restroom of a restaurant. But when Sammy's look-alike -- an abrasive character named Herbert Brubaker III -- comes to visit Davis and his wife Altovise at their home, the kidnappers strike again, abducting Brubaker by mistake. The Angels set out to rescue Brubaker, who has his captors convinced he is the real Sammy, despite a hilarious "demonstration" of his talent. Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith. and Cheryl Ladd star as the Angels, Sabrina Duncan, Kelly Garrett and Kris Munroe, respectively, who work for Charlie, an unseen and very sophis-ticated boss who phones in their instructions. David Doyle stars as Bosley, Charlie's harried assistant.

Charlie's Angels were wonderful because they were smart, attractive, and active. In Season Two, they play football, hang glide, ride horses, play tennis, sing, play guitar, ice skate, enter a beauty pageant, and so on. The Angels prove that they can hold their own, anywhere, anytime. Farrah Fawcett left Charlie's Angels after Season One. Although she does guest star in the third and fourth season, she does not appear in the second season. She was replaced by Cheryl Ladd.
Here is an episode guide, with a tiny description:
1. Angels in Paradise (1): Charlie has been kidnapped while on vacation in Hawaii.
2. Angels in Paradise (2): The Angels work on rescuing Charlie.
3. Angels on Ice (1): Two ice show stars are kidnapped. Guest stars (gs): Phil Silvers, Jim Backus

I am so grateful that Sony decided to release the second season of Charlie's Angels on DVD! I pray they follow up with the three remaining seasons as well. Season 2 is my favorite season for a number of reasons. First of all, the tone of the series changed with the introduction of Kris Munroe. In Season 1 the episodes were much more adult oriented, but in Season 2 there was a blitz of toys being marketed towards kids and the show became a bit campy. Having a rookie Angel on the payroll soothed this transition, for with Kris came a sense of humor. Having posed for the extreme undercover roles of a toy mannequin ("Mother Goose is Running For His Life"), a clown ("Angels on Ice"), and a nudist ("Angels in Paradise"), Kris was clearly a team player. Cheryl Ladd proved her worth throughout the run of the series by allowing Kris to evolve from the spirited innocent who first bounced into the Townsend offices and into a more world weary mature woman by the end of Season 5. Her major turning point is depicted in "Angel Baby" in which Kris shoots a man for the first time.
In addition to Sabrina & Kelly receiving a new partner, the Angels performed some of their best detective work in several of the episodes, most notably in "Angels in Paradise" in which they go up against two rival Hawaiian mobs, stage a jail break, and rescue a kidnapped Charlie. Bosley also gets much more involved in the cases than he did on Season 1.
The picture and sound quality for this box set are better than that of Season 1, but I am only giving it four stars because Sony has done the unthinkable in editing two of the episodes.

I strongly feel that season 2 of Charlie's Angels was probably the best season of the entire series run. Having to make up for the loss of Farrah they cast Cheryl Ladd and she turned out to be the most successful new Angel. Cheryl Ladd brought a lot of fun to the show and I think did a better job than Farrah. Jaclyn Smith shined as Kelly, though her acting may not have been the best during the first season, it started developing more and more, and she was by far the most beautiful woman on television when Charlie's Angels aired. Kate Jackson does supurb as the unofficial leader of the group, what she lacks in the 'babe factor' she makes up in her great acting skills. David Doyle never fails to impress as the lovable Bosley who always has the girls' backs. This season also brought about great episodes with the premiere "Angels in Paradise", having the most beautiful women on television against a Hawaiian paradise made for a great episode. "Pretty Angels All in a Row", a fun episode that could rival the ever popular season one episode "Angels in Chains". It was a very special treat to see the talents of Cheryl Ladd displayed in "Angels in the Wings", where Cheryl Ladd does a big musical number. It was also a fun treat to see the actual Charlie's Angels dolls that were sold in stores at the time appear in the episode "Mother Goose is Running for His Life". These episodes along with such notable guest as Sammy Davis Jr. make season 2 of Charlie's Angels a classic.
