1.0 out of 5 stars It's not PG it's a 12!!!, 17 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The A-Team: Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Rather frustrated as I ordered this for my 3 young boys. It is the only one of the A-team series that is advertised as PG rather than 12, hence my reason for ordering. It has just arrived and it actually has a 12 rating and is therefore unsuitable! Please Amazon update the rating on your description and on the image provided. I will be returning this item.

This was one of the greatest TV shows ever made and contributed to making millions of kids very happy and have some great fun - particularly talking about it in the playground when we got back to school. I was one of those kids and I, along with my friends, watched every single episode of the A-Team because every episode happened to be on before the watershed. We were all under 12 when we watched the first few seasons - like I said it was aired before the watershed - and so far we have not purchased automatic weapons, entered or tried to escape a military stockade or constructed offensive weapons/vehicles from bits and pieces lying around our garage.
It is rather unfair that owing to a mistake made by Amazon you have decided to punish the show and the people who produced it by giving it a low rating when it is not their fault. All you needed to do was tell Amazon and they would have resolved the problem for you - I have always found them to be a reasonable company and you have clearly pointed out that the mistake was theirs. Consequently your negative review should be for the seller.......but you have given it to the product!
Sadly, instead of reviewing the A-Team Series 3 - which is what you were supposed to be doing - you have solely reviewed the mistake made by Amazon. This has negatively affected the show's overall rating and has misled the Amazon community who use this rating system to judge whether the show has any merit.
I would also like to point out that the 12 rating does not actually mean anybody under 12 cannot watch it. All it means is that if anyone under 12 does watch it they should have an adult present. As you are so concerned for your children maybe you could take the time to watch this great show with them. The fact that you have chosen to start at series 3 simply because of the rating is completely beyond me. Surely it is common knowledge that The A-Team was a show mainly aimed at kids and in the early 80s millions of kids watched it - many under 12. Perhaps it is just a sign of the times now that we have to be politically correct to the point of ridiculousness and we have to be part of a society that panics over every little thing as it seeks to create a world which mimics the sterile conformity of a lab experiment.
