The A-Team = Action/Comedy Perfection,
This review is from: The A-Team: Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Because of all the endless lifestyle type programmes that seem to infect my TV these days, I have bought a lot of DVD Boxsets as I think they are excellent value for money and one of them was this wonderful piece of television.
Having watched The A-Team as a kid in the 1980's I was a fan of the show then but having watched this boxset recently I was amazed at how much I enjoyed it and that I enjoyed it even more now than then. The reason for this is because I appreciate the chemistry between the characters much more than I did as a kid, I also seem to find it a lot funnier and the theme tune is the icing on the cake.
I can't pick a favourite character as I think they are all unique and brilliant but if I had to I would suprisingly say Hannibal, I say suprisingly because as a kid I think he was probably my least favourite. I know that the all B.A./Murdock relationship is hilarious but I also find the B.A. losing it with Hannibal moments far funnier than I can remember. Forget about all the tedious comments about nobody ever getting shot in all the gunfights etc. and just enjoy this show for what it is.
The only negative thing I can say about the first season is that I personally found the pilot episode a bit slow but this seems to be the case with most of my favourite shows so it's just me being a little fussy and the only negative thing I can say about this boxset is the lack of extras but even without these it is still excellent value.
One last comment is that the picture quality is superb, I know it is supposed to be but some of my other boxsets aren't this good.
So my advice is that if like me you loved The A-team as a kid and are thinking about buying this boxset but not sure, then buy it fools whatever age you are as I am sure you won't regret it.
