The A-Team: Firing Line
episode number: season 5, episode 3 (1986)
viewing setting: home DVD, 11/12/13
episode synopsis: The team faces the firing squad, but gets a reprieve and a new boss.
impressions: Hannibal: "Amazing how Stockwell's men are nowhere to be found, isn't it?" Murdock: "Maybe _we're_ Stockwell's men." That exchange just about sums up the feel of this new direction...covert operations, secrecy, manipulation. The terms of the deal are still vague at this point, so I'm curious to see how things progess in the next few episodes. This one also had some interesting visions by some of the guys about possible outcomes of the execution.

what the team builds in this episode: Nothing.
Hannibal wisecrack highlight: Smarts off to his new boss.
B.A. toughness highlight: None.
Murdock insanity highlight: None, but actually claims to be cured at the end.
