Review: The first 3 episodes of season 5 combine to make the Court Martial. This in my opinion this contains the best story of any episode. Many questions about the A-Team are answered in these episodes and the action and humour comes thick and fast. The A-Team are captured by Hunt Stockwell who tells the A-Team that Captain Curtis is still alive and that he is onboard a plane in Barcelona and that it is held by terrorists and the A-Team have to save him. If Curtis gives evidence the A-Team will get a military pardon so the A-Team go to Barcelona. I don't want to waste the plot for these episodes but these episodes you must see.
Rating (Out of 10): 10
Trivia: Colonel Decker appears in this episode.
Murdock's T-Shirt: Sensuous & Strong
B.A. "Everybody in the world know the man is a fool. He's crazy. He sees people that ain't really there. He talk in circles all the time."
Laskov "He sounds like a disturbed individual. Do you think he's dangerous?"
B.A. "Murdock won't hurt nobody."
Attorney "They're planning to call your friend Captain Murdock to testify against you."
Attorney "I was wondering why they hadn't named him in the original indictment. I think they plan to bring him down on the stand and then indict him as a co-conspirator."
Hannibal "Murdock... on the stand?! That should be interesting."
Decker "I pursued Colonel Smith and the A-Team for three long years. I lost track of how many laws they broke and how much military property they destroyed. I can tell you this: Rules mean nothing to these men, and they're loyal to no one but themselves. I have no doubt that they're capable of the crimes for which they're accused."
Hannibal "What a guy."
