The A-Team: One More Time
episode number: season 1, episode 10 (1983)
viewing setting: home DVD, 6/20/04
episode synopsis: The team is captured by Lynch, but then turned loose to rescue a general in Borneo.
impressions: Good rescue mission episode, and they face a simple, lethal enemy leader who will kill them if they don't do what he wants (and then they glibly defy him anyway.)
notable guest star: This is such an incredibly small world. The general's daughter is played by none other than Amy Steel, who was the heroine in the classic Friday the 13th part 2.
what the team builds in this episode: improvised high-power slingshot out of the parts from a cot
Hannibal wisecrack highlight: when caught in the kitchen due to bad intel, he cracks jokes about the soup
B.A. toughness highlight: knocks out an enemy soldier with a head-butt
Murdock insanity highlight: sets animals loose to cover his escape from the hospital, later makes airplane noises while flying Amy after the team
Face scam highlight: despite being in a cell and facing execution, he quickly and quietly gravitates toward the general's daughter
Amy usefulness highlight: forced to help Murdock follow/rescue and parachute from plane, she eventually fires the flare-gun that saves Face's life
