This episode was, sadly, fairly typical of 1980s guest star-centric action episodes. Rick James and Isaac Hayes dominate screen time and much story is lost.
Hayes' character is locked in jail with, naturally, a corrupt warden and some bad-guy guards. The A-Team is hired by Rick James to uncover evidence that will free him.
A prison rock 'n' roll show later, things are exposed and innocent men are freed. This short review captures the highlights of this installment of an otherwise-favorite show.
