This review is from: The A-Team: Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
The fifth season of the a team proved to be it's last and was the shortest season to date,only 13 eps instaed of 22,cancelled by the network half way through. This season saw a dramatic change to the format of the show,one maybe the viewers didnt like but i did. At the start of the season the a team are finally captured and put on trial in a 3 part story,they are found guilty but are promised a pardon if they do a number of missions for the government and are governed by Robert vaughn(Hustle,man from uncle)as Hunt stockwell a former c.i.a agent. Another big change apart from the also revamped titles and theme tune is the inclusion of frankie santana a hispanic hollywood fx guy who gets embroiled by circumstance into being a member of the team. I quite like the episodes of this last series,the mission format was a nice change and added a bit of lavour to the show,its a shame we never got to see the whole thing finished and the team pardoned and could retire to a normal life. Well worth watching and they just don't make shows like this anymore and this is the season that someone actually dies!!

Someone actually dies in the FOURTH season, not this one. Colonel Bull Fulbright is shot in the 4th season finale, no-one dies in this season on screen, only mentioned off screen.

I'm currently watching the first two seasons of The A-team, and people *do* die in those earlier episodes, too. A prisoner gets shot and killed in Pros & Cons; a crooked casino mogul gets thrown out of a window to his death in The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas; a man is shot at the start of Diamonds 'n' Dust; and a terrorist is blown out of an airplane in The Beast From The Belly Of A Boeing, although he might have made it as he had a parachute.
So, basically, people *do* die in The A-Team, but a) we don't see them actually croak, and b) it's never *the A-Team* that kill them. The idea that nobody dies is probably a misconception based on that.
