Synopsis

Television producer Stephen J. Cannell (Hunter, Wiseguy, 21 Jump Street) scored one of the earliest of his many 1980s hits with The A-Team. A group of Vietnam veterans falsely accused of a crime during the last days of the conflict, the A-Team was made up of cigar-chomping leader Hannibal (George Peppard), tough guy B.A. Baracus (Mr. T), suave con man Face (Dirk Benedict), and paranoid pilot Murdock (Dwight Schultz). The team survived through employment as soldiers of fortune, humiliating their foes and standing up for the little guy. The third season continued the A-Team's combination of action and humour, generated by the unseemly fit between the personalities of the characters as they hunt down missing persons, stake out a Wild West show, and travel to South America.

Any fans who saw Justin Lee Collins'programe "Bring Back The A Team" on Channel 4 this year, would no doubt have found it pretty damn interesting to hear how personalities clashed on the set of this classic series - namely George Peppard (Hannibal) and his alledged ego problems with other cast members. However, it's great to see that none of the off camera disbutes showed through at all in the programe. You really do believe that these guys are a solid team who can pretty much handle anything! THe A Team is just top banana - for several reasons. Firstly, unlike many shows that were on TV at the time, it doesn't really follow any particular fashion trend. And this makes it almost timeless. Look at others of the same genre now - Knight Rider, Airwolf etc - and unfortunately, you spend more time giggling at the outragous hair styles and dodgey leather jackets than actually enjoying the show. THe A Team is a bit different though - sometimes you could almost be convinced that it was filmed in the nineties or even more recently. Often the only giveaway is the massive hair styles and mandatory 80's make-up of the damsels in distress who hire the team.

Secondly, the show is essentially based around four brilliantly developed characters. Hannibal, BA, Face and Murdock are simply impossible to replace in their roles, and some of the writing is wickedly humourous (particularly many of Face and Murdocks scenes together). Episodes like "Cup a Joe" and "The Big Squeeze" are fine examples of the team at their best - fistfights like only the A Team could carry off, gunplay that demolishes everything in sight plus sureal comedic performances mainly from Murdock. I think to make a movie of the A Team would be a sad mistake. These guys ARE the A Team!

Have now bought the whole five series of the A Team. It's great fun to watch. Some of the creations are a little far fetched but who cares...it's all great fun and wonderful to watch! I watched some when they originally aired in the 80's and am enjoying them all over again. Have even introduced my 20 and 23 year old daughters to the wonderful Face, Hannibal, Murdock and BA. The new A Team movie is not a patch on the original. Found myself bored by it and wanting to watch an original episode of the original A Team!

Ok, so the A-team, as one of the most popular and consistently entertaining shows of the 80's receives a nostalgic and deserving 5 stars, specifically this season, where it's found it's format and form with some of the best episodes. However this particular release gets one star. Why? Because for some unknown reason Universal decided to use the GERMAN TV MASTERS for the episodes which are sometimes cut and censored. For example, in A BEND IN THE RIVER (part 1) there are 2 shortened scenes resulting in 5:53 minutes of missing footage. Similarly, part two also suffers with 2 shortened scenes resulting in 1:35 minutes of missing footage. You can find specific info linked to from IMDB. But also, as if that's not bad enough, this horrible release also has a much more inferior image quality. The irony is that the German DVD release is actually completely uncut, and uses the proper episode masters!

So if you're a fan, and you want the best out of your A-Team do NOT bother with this release. It's awful. Pick up the region 1 US release, or region any other region 2 set. Note that season 3 is the OINLY season affected this way. All the others are fine. Universal clearly just dropped the ball.

Yes the third season was and is fantastic !!The A team was like a parent to me ,ones I wanted !! The improvisational nature of the show where the characters find themselves in challenging situations to get out of and work so well together despite their differences and have a total can do attitude .Love the crash landing episode when BA is drugged and taken aboard a plane again and and Hannibal makes a deal with him that he completes the mission , he gets his revenge on Face & Murdoch . Two buddies out adventuring he says ,and Murdoch says I think he just threatened me colonel.Buy this masterpiece !!Oh FYI ,despite what some say ,I love the 2010 A team movie !!Open mind needed as it is a movie in a completely different era and ..its a movie and only the original characters could be the originals .The movie characters have aspects of the original dudes , but don`t try to imitate them which is disrespectful.Yes greatness which would probably be perceived by the left as evil nowadays .This TV is about good triumphing over evil and overcoming adversity .

I have been a fan of the A-Team since I was a teenager and I have been slowly getting through the series, series 3 shows a marked improvement in the acting of the team and they work together. It is amazing how the think up all the situations the A-Team get into, and thinking up new ideas of vehicles to work on and equipment I feel has kept this series going, the stories have I felt been 99% good, you can hardly ever get 100% :P I saw that there was a boxed set of the A-Team but to be honest, it is cheaper to buy them all seperatly.
The two part episode The Bend in the River was classic, the pirate captain plays a great role and it is funny how it all ends.
Bounty is also a good episode as bounty hunters are after the A-Team and they actually have a good plan to catch em!
The A-Team is one of the best series I have ever watched, and I have heard there may be a film of the A-Team. No matter who they cast or how good the story could be, it will never be the A-Team to my mind :)

5 Star
