Four Vietnam vets accused of a crime they didn't commit and are wanted by the military. They become the "A Team" and right the wrongs done to innocent people who the police won't help.

Hannibal, the patriotic cigar smoking leader of the A Team.

BA, the mechanic/techno guy with a neck of gold chains, intimidating persona and smile that could light up the world.

Face, the smooth talking gatherer wonder boy.

Murdock, a nutty but genius man and fantastic pilot of airplanes and helicopters who resides in a VA psyche ward and has to be broken out for each mission.

I watched the shows back in the 80's and recently found the series on Netflicks.

In each and every show about a buzillion bullets were fired, a few cars turn over (mainly jeeps) and a lot of fist fighting. You would think somebody would get killed throughout all that. No one ever dies unless it is the precursor to the show.

I think I have a couple more shows to get through and then they will be re-reruns. Great show, simpler time.

I saw one recently (it is DTV quite often) where Murdoch took a bullet meant for Hannibal. I didn't remember anyone actually getting shot.

Another one where Face speculated that the enemy was either the Libyans, Iranians, or North Koreans. The more things change, the more they stay the same...

That show was very, what's the word? Naive. I can't help but like it though.

Loved it. I also like the movie that came out although I wish Hannibal had been tongue in cheek like the series. Also, Murdoch was bat s*** crazy in the movie. It was a little much.

I remember the classy van they used to drive around in. I had a hotwheels van when I was a kid that looked just like it. Even had hard plastic curtains on the inside.

Oh yeah, I loved that show. The explosions always sent guys flying over cars, but then they got up and ran away every time.

And they could build build a howitzer from pvc pype , a paper clip, and a charcoal grill.
