  • Ooooh, another spy genre spoof.

    So, this is a homage to James Bond. Why? Is that something the world was looking and hoping for from the A-Team?

    It doesn't matter.

    Murdock started grating on me in this episode, despite Dwight Schultz doing an admirable job. I don't recall what everyone else did in this episode, besides face being stuck out in the rain while Murdock made love.

    The episode was filled with twists and turns and double crosses. But with that, it got a little confusing.

    It was a very ambitious episode, but ambition for ambition's sake and on the fifth season budget seems a little out of place for a series in it's waning episodes.
