Some 90's shows are great. Friends and Cheers and Frasier and I'm sure a bunch of others are awesome, but they can not match the sheer innocence and brilliance of shows like the A-Team. Maybe I am biased because I grew up in the 80's but I truly feel that way. The A-Team is one show that I wish would show up in syndication here in Toronto. It was fun, imaginative and damn entertaining. Just like most other entertainment that was born in the 80's.
A true staple of the 80's

the bad news is that the packaging is junk. lets start with the van. the van itself is quite nice, heavy cardboard coated with clear plastic. its quite strong and looks great. no complaints there. the DVDs are removed via the back of the van, the spoiler on the roof lifts (attached with 2 velcro tabs) to reveal the DVD folders inside.
my first issue was one day i noticed i had left the back door open. i was surprised i did this but thought nothing of it and closed it. a short time later i saw that it was open again - now i could make no mistake about it, it wasnt me. a closer look revealed that the half of the velcro tabs on the roof of the van had lifted - the adhesive did not stick as well to the slick plastic exterior of the van as it did the black cardboard on the inside of the back, unfolding panel. i reminded this with some super glue and have had no further problems. but should i need to modify and repair a brand new $90 dvd set?
my real beef is with the DVD folders inside the van. they are of extreme low quality and bonded poorly. the dvds slip half way into circular perforated cut outs inside the folders, these rip easily and the adhesive lifts. please be assured i have no children or pets and i have not thrown my van down the stairs. no doubt this needed to be manufactured such that 5 sets of DVDs could fit inside the van (without the van being massive) but there was some real corner cutting here. often when i remove a folder (actually, its easier to just remove all 5 and then choose the one you want) DVDs have already fallen out or fall out during removal.
my final gripe is more aesthetic then regarding construction.Read more ›
