Storyline

Retired Australia soldier Griffin, who devoted his old age to setting up a diamond mine in a crackpot Southern African state, was murdered before it became profitable. His daughter Toby hires the A-team to get it running and warns they'll be attacked too by local tycoon Jonathan Fletcher's henchmen and just about everybody has been bought by Fletcher, resulting in an effective embargo. Face and Murdock masquerade as officials to scam supplies. They are all terribly exposed carrying a cargo of explosives to the mine, even after overpowering a pair of goons. Written by KGF Vissers

Season two opener
18 October 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

DIAMONDS 'N DUST is the opening episode of season two of THE A-TEAM and sees the team back in business in a safe kind of way. They're up against a ruthless mine owner with the action set in South Africa. The usual mix of comic interplay, George Peppard's random disguises, and plentiful but tame action sequences fill the narrative, making this a light but entertaining ride.
