Three more missions for the comically mismatched but uncannily effective soldiers of fortune. In 'Bounty' Murdoch is kidnapped and falls in love with a lady vet. 'Waste 'Em!' sees the boys uncover a scandalous and ecologically unsound waste-dumping program. And 'Black Day at Bad Rock' finds the team in trouble when a doctor treating BA Baracus becomes suspicious and calls in the local sheriff.
Initially one of NBC network's most successful series, The A-Team ran for 90 one-hour episodes (with a few feature-length specials thrown in) from 1983 to 1987. The premise of the series was certainly different. A group of US operatives is sent to rob the Bank of Hanoi during the Vietnam War in an attempt to destabilise the country's economy, but the bigwig who organises the raid is killed, leaving no indication that the mission was officially sanctioned. Returning home, Smith (George Peppard), BA (it stood for "Bad Attitude") Baracus (Mr T), Face (Dirk Benedict) and that "crazy foo" Murdoch (Dwight Schultz) suddenly find themselves accused of criminal activity, obliging them to set up as benevolent mercenaries. They tear around the country in what looks like a delivery van, generally do-gooding while keeping one step ahead of the inept military police.
Snappy, witty and fast paced, the series began as a spoof of the action-thriller genre. It wasn't until the later episodes that an element of seriousness crept in, which may have caused the decline in audience figures eventually resulting in the show's cancellation. On video and DVD though, it remains a feast for fans of classic cult TV.--Roger Thomas

‘Bounty’ sees Murdock forcibly extracted from mental hospital by three hillbillies and a mute Native American intent on luring the rest of the A-Team out of hiding. In the ensuing goings on, Murdock falls in love with a veterinarian, nemesis Colonel Lynch gets hot on the trail and the usual spot of engineering proves to be the decisive factor. There are intentional laughs (B.A.’s concern for ‘crazy foo’ Murdock) and unintentional ones (some terrible lip-synching when Face takes over a DJ booth), the ideal balance for any A-Team episode.
‘Waste ‘Em!’ deals with the troubles of a, yep, Vietnam veteran and his blind sister, who are being threatened by sinister big business types. The title is a rather (cough) clever pun on the toxic waste the baddies intend to dump on the siblings’ site: as the A-Team proceeds to turn the tables and ‘waste’ the bad guys. Again, this is rollicking stuff. Face gets the blind sister in rather dubious fashion (it’s a case of ‘I’m attractive, so are you, therefore let’s get it on’) and gets to wield a flamethrower lit by one of Hannibal’s cigars. But stealing the show once again is B.A., who spectacularly destroys a window in more ways than one and even gives ‘Howlin’ Mad’ Murdock a taste of his own medicine!
But the best is saved for last. ‘Black Day At Bad Rock’ dispenses with the usual expository material, as we see Hannibal and Face arrive in Bad Rock with a wounded and VERY angry B.A. in tow.Read more ›
The first episode is 'Bounty', in which Murdoch is kidnapped by bounty hunters. Trivia buffs might be interested to know that the lady Murdoch falls in love with is none other then his real life wife, Wendy Fulton. Knowing this adds to the enjoyment of the episode and it is a great way to start the DVD off.
The second episode is 'Waste Em!' This has the team called in to help save a Vietnam veteran and his blind sister from bad guys planning on using their land for toxic waste. Before you can say 'you crazy fool!' the team are on the case.
The last episode is one of the best of the series. 'Black Day at Bad Rock' has BA injured and in need of a blood transfusion from none other than Murdoch! The script is very funny, with BA ready to strangle Murdoch when he realises that he is starting to rhyme his words like Murdoch (I ain't rhyming my words, stupidist thing I ever heard, my ears don't ring, I don't hear a thing!) Add some biker gang trying to spring their leader from jail and you have a brilliant episode worthy of it's five star rating.
As Mr T would say, I pity the fool who doesn't buy this DVD!!!!
Bounty is very much a 'Murdock' episode and he gets time for a little romance as well as being kidnapped. Hannibal and the gang don't let anyone trap them, especially Decker.
Waste 'Em - BA shows a sense of humour dealing with Murdock's sidekick is "Lefty". Face's turn for a little lurve.
Black Day at Bad Rock - BA gets shot and only Murdock's crazy blood will do... And a little romance for Hannibal this time.
Anyhow, Hannibal grins and schemes, Face scams, BA is the ultimate tough guy in gold jewellery and Murdock is just his fantastic crazy best. You know you want to watch this DVD!
