The A-Team: Trouble Brewing
episode number: season 3, episode 23 (1985)
viewing setting: home DVD, 2/23/06
episode synopsis: The team comes to the aid of two sisters who run a soda company and are being pressured to sell by a brewery.
impressions: This episode was okay, but as usual lately, there was a greater plot (and greater bad guy) behind the initial plot. This one had some interesting things, including an early, primitive ATM machine and a scene in which snipers hit from below with a high-pressure hose actually fell _toward_ their attacker (and off of a three-story building...good thing there were soft objects beneath.)
notable guest star: Anthony James, who was the main bad guy in a previous episode, is a thug in this one.
what the team builds in this episode: A high-pressure hose that fires...soda. In 7 delicious flavors.
Hannibal wisecrack highlight: Nothing, really.
B.A. toughness highlight: Eats a recipe that Murdock gives him.
Murdock insanity highlight: Becomes an avid health nut.
Face scam highlight: Starts a fake ad agency to increase sales of the soda company and aggravate the bad guys.
