80s Wednesday

The A-Team

"I love it when a plan comes together." Col. John "Hannibal" Smith.

Adding the above quote to yesterday's entry pretty much set me in the direction of the A-Team as an 80s Wednesday feature. Kinda makes me wonder why I've waited so long to add this one to the growing list. I used to watch this show religiously. Every time an episode was on TV, I'd be there watching. It was so cool -- action-packed, a bunch of unlikely heroes -- man, did we need anything more?

A little about the show from Wikipedia:

The A-Team was an action/adventure television show about a fictional group of ex-US Army commandos who are on the run from the military while working as soldiers of fortune. Despite this, the A-Team almost always acted on the side of the "good guys," helping the oppressed. The show ran for five seasons on the NBC television network, from January 23, 1983, to March 8, 1987, with a total of 98 episodes.

Although I loved the four characters -- Hannibal, Murdock, Face and Baracus -- Mr. T was my fave. He was outrageous, funny and hated flying. How many times did they have to sedate him to get him on a plane? Lol! I love it! I've got great memories about this show... there was a bit of everything...

I loved this show when I was young! And Mr. T was my fave, too.

I caught a few reruns earlier this year and found myself very much entertained again. :)

Hi Becca! Thanks for stopping by.

Glad to hear there are other A-Team fans out there! I also think I'd still enjoy watching it now...
