The A-Team were former elite crack commandos in the Vietnam War. A defect army
officer ordered their last mission in the war and directly after The A-Team
was wrongly arrested for robbing the Bank of Hanoi. After being arrested and
sentenced by the military police The A-Team broke out of a maximum security
prison – Fort Bragg. Now The A-Team survive as soldiers of fortune, outlaws
in the Los Angeles underground.
The A-Team ran from 1983 – 1987 for 5
Seasons on NBC.
The legends that are The A-Team:
John "Hannibal" Smith – George
Sergeant Bosco "B.A." Baracus – Mister
/ Mr. T
Lieutenant Templeton "Faceman" Peck – Dirk
Captain H.M. "Howlin'
Mad" Murdock – Dwight
Templeton "Faceman" Peck – Tim
"In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent
to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit.
These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to
the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government,
they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if
no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can
hire the A-Team."
The A-Team has a well earned place at Legendary
TV this show not only griped the big USA but the whole world.
Simply it was four guys (yes no women as the main part something
which never happens these days!) helping the unfortunate with
people who operated above the law, all this while on the run
from the military police.
The show started out being very serious
but thanks to the actors it soon turned more light hearted
and was even more appealing to an already captured audience.
The A-Team was well known for its fight scenes and bullets
flying everywhere but no one would ever die from the gunfights!
This made fantastic family TV and something for people of all
