Recap / The A Team S 3 E 16 Champ

Go To

The A-Team comes to take a look at a boxer, Billy Marquette, in whom Face invested some of their money, only to find him crumpled on the ground, having been beaten up after refusing to throw a fight. The team quickly concocts a plan of their own, which involves B.A. posing as a boxer and taking Billy's place.

This episode contains examples of the following tropes:

  • The Boxing Episode: Face invests a substantial portion of the Team's money in a boxer named Billy Marquette, but in the process they discover that a local sleaze named Sonny Monroe is rigging boxing matches. B.A. goes undercover as an unbeatable boxer so the team can take Monroe down.

  • Excited Episode Title!: The episode has an exclamation point on the end.
  • Friend to All Children: When the villains drug B.A.'s water during the boxing match the only thing that finally manages to motivate him to get his head back in the game is Murdock telling him he's going to let down the little kids who are rooting for him.
  • Slipping a Mickey: The antagonists drug the water in which B.A.'s mouth guard is rinsed when they realize that he has no intention of throwing the fight as ordered. Unfortunately for them, it makes him woozy but it doesn't stop him from beating his opponent.

How well does it match the trope?
