The A-Team: Point of No Return
episode number: season 5, episode 9 (1986)
viewing setting: home DVD, 11/18/13
episode synopsis: During a mission in Hong Kong, Hannibal goes missing, and the team must find him.
impressions: This one was fairly serious, and for most of the episode it appeared that Hannibal had been killed. There was action and also treachery, and real danger (a leaking nuke.) Stockwell beat up two bad guys. And it ended with Stockwell demonstrating the perks of "doing it my way."
notable guest stars: Rosalind Chao, Soon Teck-Oh, Nancy Kwan are all bad guys. Frequent 1980s movie cameo/guest-star Al Leong (the guy who played the terrorist who stole a candy bar from the lobby in Die Hard) makes a brief appearance as a goon.
what the team builds in this episode: Nothing.
Hannibal wisecrack highlight: None.
B.A. toughness highlight: Goes toe-to-toe with a big Samoan-like thug.
Murdock insanity highlight: Flips out after possibly being exposed to radiation.
Face scam highlight: Disguises himself as an old Asian man in order to cause a distraction.
Frankie special effects highlight: None.
