The show is really getting into this whole arrest-and-trial storyline – they hired William F. Buckley to host a fictional version of his real show, “Firing Line,” and he and Noam Chomsky, Walker Percy and Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney debate the team's trial and whether or not they actually killed Colonel Morrison. Seriously, they hired the prime minister to debate the A-Team!

Hannibal has a new acting gig, but this time he's no movie monster – he's Madge, the manicurist with the “thirst for power”! He's a little out of his range as an actor, but it's a big break, and a handy one too; when the team crosses paths with the greedy owner of a chemical plant, Hannibal lowers the guy into a big vat of Palmolive, and yells “You're soaking in it, slimeball!”

The team gets hired on to help a mom-and-pop group of storm chasers, who claim that a big corporation is trying to take over all the tornadoes in Kansas. First, there is no such corporation, it's just another storm chaser named Greg, and he doesn't have a problem with the other folks. The mom and pop group confess that they just wanted somebody to come over and watch the Weather Channel with them. A confusing season finale.

Face has a friend who just can't seem to get tough stains out in his apartment – he's tried scrubbing them out, but the place just doesn't shine and sparkle the way it used to. Fortunately the team has an ace up its sleeve – Scrubbing Bubbles! (Hannibal was friends with the lead bubble in Vietnam, you see.) If the plot doesn't impress you, just remember it's not every day that you see an elite fighting force spending a whole three days cleaning a kitchen. With dynamite. Until it explodes. Into space.

Samuel Beckett writes an episode of the A-Team – a dark, dreary episode in which the team is stranded by the roadside and has to think of how to pass the time until their contact, Insane Wayne, arrives. Every so often another character drives by and the team gets excited, but it turns out not to be Wayne, and the excitement passes. After a while they get a message on the van's phone that Wayne won't be coming, and will try again tomorrow. Hannibal says fine, let's go, but no one moves. Eek.

A redneck bar crowd is dancing to Culture Club while the A-Team tries to foil an armed robbery, while Murdock plays Lennon Sisters tunes at the radio station. This moment is why TV was invented.
