The A-Team: Double Heat

episode number: season 3, episode 5 (1984)
viewing setting: home DVD, 2/5/06

episode synopsis: The team gets hired to rescue the daughter of a key witness in a mobster's trial.

impressions: This one was pretty good, filled with action and plot twists. Bullet holes even appeared in the back of the van when bad guys shot at it.

notable guest star: Steven Williams, who had a regular role as the captain in 21 Jump Street, is one of the mobsters here. Leah Ayres, who was the cute but annoying reporter in Bloodsport, is the kidnapped daughter here.

what the team builds in this episode: Nothing.

Hannibal wisecrack highlight: Shoots up mobster #1's club to trick him into leading them to mobster #2 (they're enemies) and then parachutes into mobster #2's pool wearing a monster suit.

B.A. toughness highlight: Nothing stood out.

Murdock insanity highlight: Thinks he's a 1950s news reporter, and tries to get sound bites from many people he encounters in this episode.

Face scam highlight: Talks his way into borrowing a helicopter.
