The A-Team: The Trouble With Harry

episode number: season 4, episode 20 (1986)
viewing setting: home DVD, 11/12/13

episode synopsis: Hulk Hogan visits B.A. at a youth center, but they all end up helping a kid's alcoholic dad deal with vengeful mobsters.

impressions: Complicated plot - there were multiple groups of bad guys and things kept going back and forth. Plus the Hulk Hogan factor. And a running gag about a pair of twins who keep getting stood up by Face and Murdock.

notable guest star: Hulk Hogan and William "Refrigerator" Perry appear as themselves. Paul Gleason (who played the principal in The Breakfast Club and the police chief in Die Hard) was the alcoholic ex-boxer father.

what the team builds in this episode: nothing

Hannibal wisecrack highlight: Walks into the bad guys' headquarters and talks back to them before starting a fight

B.A. toughness highlight: Lots of fighting, though he's overshadowed by Hulk

Murdock insanity highlight: none

Face scam highlight: A failed scam, as he keeps pushing the date with the twins back as bad guys keep kidnapping him and Murdock
