Season One highlights include "Children of Jamestown," starring John Saxon as a Jim Jones-like religious cult leader who captures Hannibal, Face, B.A., and first-season sidekick Amy "Triple A" Allen (Melinda Culea). While the resourceful group invents a super-weapon out of farm equipment, crazy Murdock commandeers a helicopter and dynamite. Also good is "A Small and Deadly War," featuring Dean Stockwell as one of several uncontrolled L.A. cops committing murder-for-hire. "The Out-of-Towners" takes a page from the Death Wish movie series with a story about New York City shop owners harassed by a protection racketeer (Yaphet Kotto). Hannibal and company retaliate with machine guns (no one is ever seen killed in this series) and, more effectively, public humiliation of the villain. The best thing about The A-Team is the relationship between the four offbeat heroes, who may not always like each other (B.A. usually looks as if he'd like to leave Murdock in a shallow grave) but get the job done expertly. --Tom Keogh

The hit 80s TV series that helped save the NBC network finally makes it way to DVD. The A-Team is the story of a Vietnam crack commando unit made up of four men: Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith, Lieutenant Templeton Peck (a.k.a. Face), Captain H.M. (Howlin' Mad) Murdock, and Sergeant B.A. Baracus (Mr. T).
They were committed of a crime they didn't commit and escaped from a maximum security stockcade to the Los Angeles underground and survived as soldiers of fortune, helping out those in need.
The first season of The A-Team is probably my favorite. Everything was just original and raw, where they didn't have a care but for themselves and their attitudes were more rough and comedy came as a result of their actions and insults, rather than trying to intentionally be funny. In later seasons it's the opposite, where the guys seem to become more soft and sensitive to the situations and feelings and comedy seemed to be more of the intent rather than their rough image, and the shows tended to follow the same formula every week.
There are 14 episodes in Season 1:
Episodes 1 and 2 - Mexican Slayride Part 1 and Part 2 - The two hour pilot. When a newspaper reporter from the L.A. Courier gets kidnapped by outlaws in Mexico, fellow reporter Amy Allen seeks out The A-Team to rescue him. Features the only time Faceman is played by Tim Dunigan instead of Dirk Benedict.
3. Children of Jamestown - The A-Team is hired to save a girl from a cult led by the Rev. Martin James. Upon freeing the girl, The A-Team is captured and looks to escape and return the favor to James. The lesson is, nobody takes Hannibal's boots.
4. Pros and Cons - A friend of B.A. escapes prison and gets caught, but not before telling B.A.Read more ›
First of all an introduction to the A-Team is needed.
First we have the leader, John 'Hannibal' Smith (the late, great George Peppard on top form) a Colonel in the US army so called because of his expert war tactics being likened to that of the legendary Hannibal Barca.
Then there is Templeton 'The Face' Peck (Dirk Benedict) the smooth con-man who is relied upon to get whatever supplies are needed.
Bosco 'BA' Baracus (the very funny Mr. T) is the muscle. No one argues or torments when BA is around.
And finally, Captain HM Murdock (Dwight Schultz) a crazy pilot who only pretends to be insane for the fun (and shelter) but can be serious when needed.
Season One also featured Amanda Amy Allen (Melinda Culea), a newspaper reporter who follows the A-Team around and covers their antics. She never did much else but she has a beautiful smile and gorgeous legs that go all the way up.
As you know the A-Team are on the lam for a crime they didn't commit (allegedly they robbed the Bank of Hanoi during the Vietnam war) and help folks out whenever injustice brings misery or despair.
The episodes in season one are as follows...
1 and 2. Mexican Slayride parts 1 and 2-The pilot episode in which the team go to Mexico to rescue a reporter held hostage by guerillas. It's okay, nothing special. Ron Palilo guest stars.
3. Children Of Jamestown-The team are hired to rescue a girl kidnapped by mad christian fundementalists. Gerrit Graham guest stars.

From the Pilot until the rest of Season One, I take my time to watch all the episodes when I had the time to watch. And every single episode I enjoyed it and it brings back the memories of what I love about the 80s. Although this season does not include any special features at all and just all 14 episodes, I'm glad its here to stay. And for my country that didn't air the 1st season, finally able to watch it and enjoyed every moment of it.
Get the 1st season and see how they started, how "Hannibal" is always on the jazz, how "Face" wooed every pretty girl he meets, how "Murdock" always gets crazy over Billy the invisible dog & how "B.A." hates "Murdock" for being crazy... and flying! It's "The A-Team" you will love if you remember. And it's the same fun-filled action series that will always gives you the same jazz like it was before.
