VIDEO: The A-Team “The Heart of Rock N' Roll”

In a rare TV-based episode, Mr. Mendo takes on the most infamous episode of The A-Team ever, “The Heart of Rock and Roll”, where Hannibal, Face, Murdock, and B.A. help Rick James get his friend and mentor Isaac Hayes out of a tough situation! Isaac is about to be released from prison, but he’s gotten himself involved in some sort of robbery ring, and his only hope of surviving is a cassette tape… or something.

Really, it’s just a flimsy excuse to build an episode around lengthy performances of the greatest hits of Rick James, Isaac Hayes, James Taylor, and Huey Lewis and the News. Take out all the songs, and “Heart of Rock and Roll” is a 12 minute episode, which is exactly what Mendo has made for you!

    Ah, the glories of taking on nostalgic favorites. Is it any wonder TV Tropes blames me for “(turning the Booth into) an Unpopular Opinions Thread”?

      I thought it was just you being a fucking Scientologist. Get back on your spaceship, alien fag.

      • Premier Blah, can you please stop posting under other names to call people fags? It’s getting old.

        Maybe it’s just my Hubbard-addled brain, but I’m not seeing the connection here. Explain…

      I thought it was because you dared to have a different opinion than them on Repo! The Genetic Opera.

        I suppose me hating It’s A Wonderful Life, Forrest Gump and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind probably didn’t help…

    Excellent review there, ah rich james isaac hayes and Uncle Phil what more could you want

  • Handsome Pete

    These aren’t really holes in the premise by the show’s standards. For example, because Face is the super con artist of the team and has such expensive tastes, he often has things like mansions and fancy cars, under assumed names of course.

    • Michael A. Novelli

      Yes, but if the A-Team are so well-known that ordinary people recognize them, how come no cops ever put it together. Or, for that matter, how is it none of Face’s floosies ever say to themselves, “Gee, they looked an awful lot like that A-Team everyone’s always talking about…”

  • PremierBlah

    Good God is this a strange one.

    • Michael A. Novelli

      How so?

  • Ed

    Nice work, I think you did a better job on it than I would have.

  • Matt Phelan

    Very amusing, but the continuity error regarding Hannibal chasing the bad guys out of the shop twice is wrong as the first guy clearly isn’t George Peppard; the guy is just an unfortunate extra dressed in a similar suit.
