The A-Team: The Only Church In Town
episode number: season 2, episode 3 (1984)
viewing setting: home DVD, 5/26/05
episode synopsis: Face gets a "please help" letter from the love of his life, who's in Ecuador being held hostage by bandits holed up in a convent.
impressions: Another go-far-away-and-rescue-someone episode, though with a personal twist for one member of the team. In addition to showing us a little of Face's past, it allows the team to fight and beat the bandits not once, but twice!
notable guest star: none that I could tell
what the team builds in this episode: various defensive aids (armored turret, springboards to flip bad guys off a ledge)
Hannibal wisecrack highlight: doesn't back down from a nun's scolding
B.A. toughness highlight: reliazes that he was taken to Ecuador on a plane, and goes off on his own and trades the plane in for a boat, thus pulling one over on the team
Murdock insanity highlight: disguises himself as a nun and sweeps dust all over a couple of the bandits
Face scam highlight: before the mission, he poses as a neurosurgeon to seduce some pretty lady
Amy usefulness highlight: listens to Face tell his one-true-love-lost tale from high school
