The Angels learn that the run was in preparation for the two to be part of a stunt event called "Twilliger's Twenty", where Mr. Twilliger of Twilliger's Togs sportswear has hired twenty attractive and fit women to run a fifteen mile staggered start race through the streets of Los Angeles wearing his running clothes, each woman completing the race paid $1,000, with the winner to receive $5,000.

User Reviews

Entire production crew should have been fired. Worst episode ever.
30 July 2018 | by jeffrspragueSee all my reviews

Charlie's Angels is a fun show. My wife and I have been watching the first three seasons, and this is easily one of the most idiotic episodes of any TV show ever broadcast. 75% of the episode is simply video of girls running in a foot race with the stupidest, campiest, music you ever heard repeated over and over until your every nerve is on edge and you want to scream.

There's a small sub-plot about exploiting women - which is ironic since this entire episode is just one big example of exploitation because it has absolutely nothing to offer except watching women run.
