Murdock signs up for water aerobics at the VA mental hospital, and soon he’s got the whole A-Team enjoying the benefits of low-impact, water-based stretches and bends.

My Year With The A-Team: Season 2, Episode 20 – Deadly Maneuvers

An evil chiropractor, twisting and contorting and manipulating his victims’ spines until they turn into servants of the dark? It’s true, this odd but compelling Halloween episode features Hannibal disguised as Horst, a Eurotrash wunderkind of chiropractic who can’t tolerate competition, and B.A. as the very unwilling patient with a kink in his neck bigger than the Mall of America. Did I also mention the evil chiropractor is played by Jim J. Bullock? Ok then.

My Year With The A-Team: Season 2, Episode 18 – Chopping Spree

80’s action series, meet 80’s commercial pitchman! The A-Team squares off against none other than Ron Popeil, who employs his unending set of special TV offers and handy household gadgets to stop his wily foes. Popeil nearly finishes the team off by catching B.A.’s gold in a Ronco Record Vacuum, but is eventually foiled by his own Showtime Rotisserie – he set it, forgot it, and got too hungry to continue fighting. So the A-Team pelts him with chicken, yelling “BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!!!” with each wing or drumstick and Popeil dies of a massive irony overdose.

My Year With The A-Team: Season 2, Episode 16 – Pure-Dee Poison

Face’s MBA correspondence course leads the team to an odd mission, in which they must convince Old Doc and Auntie Mae, the makers of “old-timey rat poison,” that a whimsical Southern brand name for their product is not a good idea in the 80’s. But there’s an even bigger problem: the poison is actually a growth and nerve tonic, and the rats who ate it are now 60 feet tall and superintelligent! Guest-starring Bob Vila as the voice of the head rat, “Vito.”

My Year With The A-Team: Season 2, Episode 14 – The Battle of Bel Air

Murdock overhears a prophecy during “paranormal sensitivity therapy night” that one day a rapper known as the Fresh Prince will come to Bel Air and fish-out-of-water hilarity will ensue. He and the team scramble to find this Fresh Prince, but they’re not the only ones – the producers of “Silver Spoons,” worried that they’ll lose one of their stars to the Prince’s show, are also on the hunt. The day is won when Hannibal dresses as DJ Jazzy Jeff and inadvertently writes the first verse of “Parents Just Don’t Understand” and Ricky Schroeder’s head explodes.
