The A-Team: The Duke of Whispering Pines

episode number: season 4, episode 17 (1986)
viewing setting: home DVD, 11/11/13

episode synopsis: B.A. helps his old high school girlfriend, whose now-husband has disappeared.

impressions: Another decent episode. There's a gold-laundering operation going on, and the team sticks their nose in it after getting an unfriendly reception in town.

notable guest star: Jack Starrett, who played the nasty deputy Galt in First Blood, is the main bad guy here.

what the team builds in this episode: They actually take apart an armored car, bury the pieces, then later put it back together in an hour. Whatever.

Hannibal wisecrack highlight: Pretends to be an old prospector so the goons can beat him up and reveal bits of their schemes.

B.A. toughness highlight: None, but this episode showcases some of his past.

Murdock insanity highlight: Worries about taking some kind of test with Rorschach blots.

Face scam highlight: He's running a catering truck that's overpriced and has terrible food.
