The A-Team “The Taxicab Wars” (part 1 of 3)
SUMMARY: The A-Team helps a small taxicab company stave off an evil rival cab company led by Michael Ironside. Also, Murdock goes insane… again. Seems to be a pattern with the fella.
In 1983, one of the hallmarks of cheesy ‘80s television began its five year run. The A-Team has always been a personal favorite of mine. I’ve already discussed how it influenced my taste for action films in other recaps, so let’s get to the important stuff.
Created by Stephen J. Cannell and Frank Lupo, The A-Team revolves around the adventures of four members of an Army unit who were drummed out of the service on trumped up charges back in 1972. Hell, I don’t even need to give that much background; it’s only in the intro to every episode.
