The agency's next client is Charlie's old friend, Hildy Slater, the owner/operator of an "adult growth center" called Utopia West, where guests are asked to check their inhibitions at the door. Just as she was walking by her nephew Frank Slater's cabin, she heard some ruckus and gunshots, a person running from the cabin, and a dead Frank on the floor of his cabin. Frank had only recently arrived at Utopia West, he a Vietnam War vet and drifter who worked as Hildy's driver. To investigate Frank's murder, the Angels and Bosley can easily work their way undercover into Utopia West with little suspicion, as the murder has scared off some employees and guests. Kelly is to fill Frank's position which includes staying in Frank's old cabin where the murder took place, Kris is to act as the physical education instructor leading such activities as tai chi and yoga, and Sabrina will be a freelance reporter/guest writing a story about the murder, while Charlie figures this case would be a good ...

Did You Know?


Kris and Kelly chase a murderer on horseback. They are wearing t-shirts with a UTOPIA WEST resort logo on them. All close-up shots of Kris during the chase sequence are flipped: the logo on Kris' t-shirt is backwards. In the final close-up at the end of the chase, the logo on Kris' t-shirt appears correctly. Also, both Kelly and Kris are clearly pretending to be on horseback in their close-ups while the actual riding is done by stunt-doubles in wide angles. See more »


Kelly Garrett: Well, What do you think of Utopia?
Kris Munroe: Are you kidding? I'm so disappointed. I thought sex would be running rampant.
Kelly Garrett: Oh, it's running. You just haven't caught up to it yet.

Kate Jackson's episode
14 October 2007 | by Trainfan6See all my reviews

Sabrina is the focus of the storyline. This episode features beautiful California meadows and mountains, in a resort setting. It appears Kate Jackson was really enjoying herself in this episode unlike any other; The scenes on horseback and by the brook are of particular note. Why couldn't she have smiled more often in the series? A degree of romance combined with nice outdoor scenery makes for a treat. They probably should have written more "love story" episodes. But, it is nice to see Kate step out of her "detective" role for a change and show us a romantic side. Good acting by Peter Haskell rounds out the show. Does anybody know where Utopia West really is?
