The Angels are in Honolulu (hoping for two weeks of sun, surf and no assignments) when they receive a call from Charlie advising that Congressman Knight's son, David, honeymooning with his wife, Marti, has been attacked while moonlight picnicking on the beach. David is critically injured and Marti is missing. The Angels pass all the tests -- sign on as lifeguards. Marti has been kidnapped and terrorized by three toughs who hold her in a secluded beach house. The three men later ram the legs of Kris' lifeguard stand with their vehicle but Kelly and Julie arrive in time to save her as the toughs escape. Bosley finds that there have been other complaints of beach assaults and the Angels recognize, from the pictures, the three who tried to attack Kris. Ted, one of the men, unbeknownst to the other two, takes Marti out of the beach house and drives to a phone where he calls Bosley with a ransom offer. Meanwhile, Marti gets away and into a shopping center where she is spotted wandering in a daze and is rescued by the Angels. The other two men discover what Ted has done and kill him. Later, Kris and Kelly are picked up and taken by the two toughs to the beach house. Kelly gets to her radio (while the two have Kris in another room) and reaches Bosley and Julie who come to the rescue and apprehend the kidnappers. David and Marti are well on their way to full recovery. watch

I remember the show Burke's ...

Question: I remember the show Burke's Law from the '90s or so, but wasn't there an earlier version of it on TV some years before? Thanks.

Answer: That there was, Drew. The original Burke's Law, which starred Gene Barry as L.A. chief of detectives Amos Burke when it launched — he became secret agent Amos Burke in the show's last season, when it was titled Amos Burke — Secret Agent — ran on ABC for two and a half years beginning in September 1963.

If Barry'd stuck to the way he'd been thinking about TV a couple of years earlier, however, he'd never have stepped into the role, which was first played by Dick Powell a couple of seasons before on Dick Powell Theatre. Barry didn't really like TV, and after leaving his previous show, Bat Masterson, read more
