The A-Team is an American action adventure television series about a fictional group of ex-United States Army Special Forces who work as soldiers of fortune while being on the run from the military for a "crime they didn't commit".

1 Let's face it, few people tuned into to see anyone but Mr. T on this show (not even George Peppard drew as many fans). B.A. was so over-the-top (like Mr. T himself) one had to laugh, while the situations were just one notch above total ludicrous. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 22, 2014, 2:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I recall the pilot episode had a different actor playing Templeton Peck (not Dirk Beneidict) the switch to Dirk MUCH better (the other guy wasn't bad as I remember) but Dirk was perfect for this role and this show imo..btw I always loved the nod to Battlestar Galactica in the episode were Hannibal was working at Universial Studios -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on October 30, 2013, 12:08 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 First of all, the fact that almost no one dies via bullets (a guy was sniped in a season 1 ep in an uncharacteristically dark moment for the show, and of course Fulbright bought the farm, as exactly no one says these days) is genius. People get comfortable with a formula, that's what TV is, your weekly fix, or daily if in syndication or on Netflix, etc. Also, the music and team-building montages were terrific. This is juvenile nonsense, almost insulting at times, unintentionally hilarious at others, but then again, it's a TV show. That's sort of what the best shows are. My kids love this show. They love the characters. The characters are sort of like life-size action figures. -- Submitted By: () on January 16, 2013, 10:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I enjoyed this show for the escapist entertainment that it was, pure and simple. IMO there were strong parallels between this show and comic books with their "shoot-em-up" styles and over the top dialogue. Used to enjoy watching them build their contraptions and kick the snot out of the bad guys. And in the end nobody gets killed, hurt, or scratched, no matter how big the explosions, how spectacular the car wrecks, or how thick the hail of bullets. You gotta love Hollywood! -- Submitted By: () on January 26, 2012, 8:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Same goes with the car crashes.. like with Dukes of Hazzard and A-Team, some of them appeared so fatal you wouldn't think anybody could walk away from that, but they did ..only in Hollywood -- Submitted By: () on December 3, 2011, 5:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 JustLooking, like with Walker, Texas Ranger, this was a so bad, it was good type of show. But yes, it was just one big funny joke with how you could have more bullets flying than a World War II battle, yet not one person would die. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 1, 2011, 6:42 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 It would have been better if the Team worked for the government(maybe making it look like the Government was/wasn't involved) from the beginning, with the team just happening to escape. -- Submitted By: () on November 13, 2011, 2:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

9 Remember watching this as a kid. Thought it was stupid then also. Outrageous plots, no one ever hit by a bullet and so on. Typical American TV show. Dumbed down for the lowest common denominator. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on September 25, 2010, 8:46 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote

11 Loved the episode when they all just stayed (home) At a house in the suburbs & Hannaballs became Block Captain. Some crazy has a riot tank in his garage. Ya never know what u might find in Suburbia! And B. A.'s homophobia is hysterical, All they needed to complete this episode was Boy George or wait wasn't he the Pop star they were protecting. Ha Ha. -- Submitted By: (ChrissyM) on July 9, 2009, 8:44 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I remember watching this show when I was younger. It really doesn't hold up to watch it today. I can't believe that I liked this. -- Submitted By: (JohnnyRocket42) on July 5, 2009, 8:30 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

14 The A-Team boned when they stopped doing the big build scenes before the climax of each episode. Actually, the precise BTF moment, for me, was when they went through the process of armoring a truck just to crash it through a wall and forget about it. The big battles with the improvised weapons were what made the early episodes really great. At some point, these kind of faded away in favour of just wrapping the show up with more injury-free shooting. Wasn't the same after that. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:13 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 I think the "A-Team" suffered from what was network TV in the 80's- every episode must be self contained, no recurring character except the main ones, no long story arcs, no payoffs etc. The characters had about as much character development as a newspaper cartoon, it was the same story every week. I think that if you could put the A-Team into something like F/X, and have some violence and some character development like "Sons of Anarchy" or "The Shield" it would be way better- but for the 80's the show did about as much as it could have done under the large restraints placed on it as a show. But I do agree, they break Murdock out every week, how hard would it be to catch these guys? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 2, 2009, 5:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Good question, Chubby Rain. I also wondered how it was that the Feds could never find them, yet anyone who wanted their services could. Hello, all they would have had to do is wait for them to break out Murdock from his mental hospital- again! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 2, 2009, 5:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Wow can they build a new contraption every episode- and hwo does nobody die!!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on March 17, 2009, 6:47 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
