Silly, but still very fun to watch.
1 January 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The A-Team isn't exactly the most deep show ever made, but it's pure fun. Sure it's a 80's show, and has corny lines, and a lot of action sequences, but for some reason that'm part of it's charm.

The idea behind the A-Team couldn't be simpler, they're a bunch of Vietnam veterans who has become soldiers of fortune. They do thing's their own way, and helps people not always for money, but because it's the right thing to do. I guess they have a sort of Robin Hood complex, as they always scam rich people to get what they need to help the less fortunate.

The A-team has a great time dynamic, and that's the heart of the series. We got George Peppard as John 'Hannibal' Smith, the leader and a master of disguise. Dirk Benedict as Templeton 'Faceman' Peck, the scammer of the gang. My favourite Dwight Schultz as 'Howling Mad' Murdock, the pilot who's a little mentally unstable. And the man who needs no introduction Mr. T as B.A. Baracus.

I'm looking forward to see more of the A-team and i tell you it's definitely worth watching. I give the pilot episode a 7/10.
