The A-Team: Beneath the Surface
episode number: season 4, episode 18 (1986)
viewing setting: home DVD, 11/11/13
episode synopsis: Face goes to his 20-year reunion, only to find that the girl he used to like now wants to sell him out to the Army for the reward money, and that an old schoolmate is in trouble.
impressions: Sunken pirate treasure wrapped in a reunion/betrayal story. It was okay, and had some diving/shark scenes. I thought the numerous parrot jokes and references (and the real parrot) were pretty funny.
notable guest star: none who I recognized
what the team builds in this episode: nothing
Hannibal wisecrack highlight: Nothing in and of itself, but the way he helps Face out at the end (the limo ride) was hilarious.
B.A. toughness highlight: nothing
Murdock insanity highlight: Goes all-out with his pirate and parrot talking.
Face scam highlight: He actually gets scammed, after a fashion.
