Storyline

Face is quite proud to have negotiated as 'Peach Pear Artist management' a profitable deal, filling Chuck's country dance hall "Floor'em" and get all the profits of a show by Cowboy George. Unfortunately the scam-artist has been scammed- his own contract allows substitution and is abused to dump on him an elsewhere canceled concert by British rock star Boy George, which the redneck audience appreciates less then drought. Boy and his Culture Club are most cooperative, and Hannibal impersonates Cowboy George, so they must now try to put both on stage, while getting wind armed bank robbers have a deal with Chuck to hit the armed car of the audience's payroll- the team stops them but they get the protection of the fake sheriff Miller who tells the workers the team he jailed committed the robbery...

Quotes

[Hannibal, Face and B.A. have been locked in a small-town jailhouse by a fake sheriff, who then leaves with all his deputies]
Face: Why would they lock us up then take off?
Hannibal: They've probably gone to tell the townsfolk that *we* stole their money. Make a great diversion - the bad guys get away, while the locals start looking at us, and throwing ropes over tree limbs.
Face: Makes sense!
Hannibal: I think we need to figure a way out of this jail, guys!
B.A. Baracus: That's why we brought you along, Hannibal. That's you're department!
Hannibal: ...

This is the funniest episode of the A Team ever...
15 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

The A Team is all about cheese, but when a bar full of homophobic rednecks starts rocking out to Boy George, the show reaches a level of surreal ridiculousness attained by very few programs.

It's a perfect illustration of the strange and delicate balance that characterized the 80's between rigid adherence to gender roles and ultra macho men on one side, and the androgynous queer-chic MTV culture on the other.

I probably watched every A-Team episode two or three times as a kid, but this is the one that always sticks in my mind because it totally obliterated the fragile suspension of disbelief I had painstakingly held on to.

And yet, when Mr. T and Boy George, two males on the opposite sides of the masculine spectrum "bond" (figuratively) at the end, it's actually kind of a sweet moment. That Boy George is a sass machine when he kicks down that door. No one's gonna make him cry. You go George.
