Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
A tender exchange from The A-Team's "Bounty" -- the 22nd of 25 episodes included in the Season 3 set -- pretty sums up the series' unique character dynamics: Week after week, the aptly nicknamed Captain H. M. ("Howling Mad") Murdock (Dwight Schultz) drives Sgt. B. A. Baracus (Mr. T) to distraction; but when Murdock is kidnapped, the bling-heavy, mohawked muscleman seems worried, and Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck (Dirk Benedict) takes notice. "I'm not concerned," B.A. insists. "It's just that the crazy fool can't help himself." "I think we're seeing another side of Mr. Baracus here," says Face. "You ain't seein' nothin'," B.A. growls. "Now, let's go get Murdock." This is as warm and fuzzy as The A-Team gets, and it's one of the reasons this adventure series ranked among A. C. Nielsen's Top 10 shows in each of its first three seasons. No Very Special Episodes (unless you count the Amazon River pirate two-parter, "Bend in the River"). No tackling of hot-button issues. And the only life lesson learned is You don't mess with the A-Team! Season 3 finds the fugitive mercenary quartet, led by Col. John "Hannibal" Smith (the scenery- and cigar-chomping George Peppard), still pursued by Col. Decker (Lance LeGault). "Trouble," Hannibal informs one client, "supplies our main form of employment." The A-Team find plenty of it as they lend their inimitable help to some little guy (or gal) being pushed around by the Mob, corrupt record producers, The Mob, corrupt union organizers, the mob, business rivals, and, of course, violators of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act. Guest stars of note this season include Markie Post as a supermodel in trouble with organized crime, in "Hot Styles," and a pre-Hill Street Blues Dennis Franz as a sleazy security company owner in "Beverly Hills Assault." But half the fun is watching the soldiers of fortune formulate a plan of attack -- which almost invariably involves tearing through intersections and screeching around corners in their big black van -- before taking down the bad guys in a hail of surrender-inducing bullets. Yes, cars and bodies hurtle in slow motion through the air, but blood rarely spills, if ever, and justice is reliably served.
