Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

If ridiculous banter, goofball plots, and many, many, many explosions sounds like the recipe for a perfect TV show to you--you must already be a fan of The A-Team. Each of these Vietnam vets on the lam had his specialty: Hannibal (cigar-chomping George Peppard, a long way from Breakfast at Tiffany's) is the cocksure master planner; Faceman (Dirk Benedict of the original Battlestar Galactica) is the smooth-talking con artist; the pilot with a screw loose is Murdock (Dwight Schultz, later to appear on Star Trek: Voyager); and B.A. Baracus (the charismatic and gold-encrusted Mr. T, Rocky III) is both mechanic and muscle. During the series' five year run, each of these eccentrics cultivated their own rabid fan-base as they threw punches, fired thousand of bullets, tossed hand grenades to and fro, and flipped speeding cars--all without killing or even really hurting anyone, which only adds to the show's willful silliness. (A warning for fans of reporter/sidekick Amy Allen, played by Melinda Culea: After being given nothing to do for a dozen or so testosterone-heavy episodes of the second season, Culea either quit or was fired.)

Only during the 1980s could this peculiar blend of lefty politics and military fetishism have thrived. Though supposedly mercenaries-for-hire, the A-Team usually finds itself defending the downtrodden and helpless out of sheer cussedness. In the second season they helped abused migrant workers form a union--which, naturally, required transmogrifying farm equipment into a cabbage-shooting cannon. Other underdogs included the disenfranchised heir to an African diamond mine; an independent cab company being squeezed by big business; and a pacifist commune harassed by bigots. The last of these prompted Hannibal to muse ponderously on the unappreciated role of the soldier, who fights so others don't have to--after which Murdock and B.A. began punching each other over a bag of pecans. Self-aware and self-mocking, The A-Team pushed the TV action/adventure genre to laughable extremes. --Bret Fetzer

The A-Team--Season Two Trivia
• In this season, Amy is no longer part of the A-Team. There's no explanation as to why.
• One episode this season sees the title sequence featuring the Cylon from Battlestar Galatica (as well being in this episode) for the first time. This is an in-joke, as Dirk Benedict played Starbuck in that series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where the show really takes off. September 5, 2005
Format:DVD
I'll admit the first season of The A-Team (that's Alpha Team for the uninitiated) was a bit dodgy and had a rough quality to it. But season 2 is where the show really found it's groove and began to develop the characters and plots more. And you just gotta love all those silly inventions. But hey, it gets the job done. Season 2 also sees more guest appearances from more well-known actors such as Dennis Franz, Michael Ironside, Ken Foree, John Amos and the supercool Lance Henrickson.

People often complain about the same things when moaning about The A-Team. They say that every show had the same plot. Well, this can be said about a lot of TV shows if you go into technicalities. But the A-Team diversified enough for this statement to be simply not true (a 2-hour episode is included in this season, for example). They also complain that no one ever got shot or died. Also not true. People do die. People are shot. Just not very often and certainly not by one of the team. I mean if they are on the run for a crime they didn't commit then it would be stupid of them to shoot people. And Amy just doesn't disappear without a reason halfway through this season as so many people complain. Her character is made a foreign correspondent in Jakarta and is frequently referenced in her abesence. People just love to hate this show because it's easy to pick apart but I doubt something like Lost will be so fondly remembered in 20 years time. However I was kinda let down when the last episode turned out to be cheap clip-show.

With rumors of an A-Team movie abound I have to express my disapproval, at the moment at least. Currently there are FAR TOO MANY old shows being made into heartless movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars An modern day television classic... April 21, 2005
Format:DVD
One of the many hit TV shows inextricably linked to the 1980's is The A-Team, an action series with plenty of bombs, machine guns, and bazookas - where miraculously no one ever seems to die! Short for "Alpha Team," The A-Team is a Vietnam-era crack commando unit wrongfully accused of robbing the Bank of Hanoi. Having escaped from a maximum security prison, the four man team survives in the anonymity of the Los Angeles underground. And with the government still hot on their trail, they're forced to work as soldiers of fortune, providing aid and assistance to the helpless victims of various injustices...

The A-Team is led by cigar aficionado Col. John "Hannibal" Smith (George Peppard), a wise-cracking officer who always has a plan in the works. Hannibal is flanked by Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck (Dirk Benedict), the consummate ladies' man; Sgt. Bosco "B.A." Baracus (Mr. T), a gold-drenched muscleman afraid of flying; and Captain H.M "Howling Mad" Murdock, a lanky mental case who nevertheless carries out his missions with flawless precision. Together, they travel the country in B.A.'s trademark black van, fighting for justice and attempting to elude the clutches of the nefarious Colonel Decker (Lance LeGault) who wants nothing more in life than to capture The A-Team...

The A-Team (Season 2) DVD features a number of action-packed episodes including the season premiere "Diamonds 'N' Dust" in which The A-Team is hired to transport explosives to a diamond mine in Zimbabwe after the owner of the mine is murdered in his attempt to deliver them himself...

5.0 out of 5 stars BRING IT ON March 13, 2005
Format:DVD
I agree with the English dude ~~~Hurry up and bring series 3, 4 and 5 out, we want them now!!! This DVD comes packed with a Knight Rider Bonus Episode which makes it even better value. Additionally in my view this package comes with some of A-teams finest humor and wit. Howling Mad Murdock takes on the persona which he feels will best handle the horse rustling situation as the Range Rider. In part this requires cutting masks out of the back of cereal and his has the horse Thunder, his invisible trusty steed, whom he has to leave behind because B.A. doesn't like invisible animals in his van~~GREAT. I'm especially looking forward for session four with Cowboy George [Boy George], Insane Wayne & Uncle Buckle-Up.

So, if you have a problem and there's no one else who can help, and if you think you can find them, maybe you can hire "The A-Team." I say to all the A-team fans out there they should write to Stephen J. Cannell and Universal Home Studio to bring these episodes out so the public can enjoy. We love when a plan comes together....

5.0 out of 5 stars An A+ for the A-Team September 12, 2005
Format:DVD
With season one behind them, this team made up of diverse backgrounds and talents shines in their sophomore season. The action is more intense, the plot lines more twisted, and the emotions more heartfelt. The writers of the series really knew how to attract the male audience through action and gun battles while drawing in the female audience through heart wrenching tales of heroism and heraldry. This is a must buy for any person wanting an experience of a lifetime. Hannibal is more cunning, Face is more of a philanderer, Murdoch is crazier, and Mr. T. is tougher. It's all around an Emmy winning performance from the entire cast.
