A channel here in good 'ol Blighty, called Forces TV, have begun showing it. But, I already have the complete series on DVD, but still we haven't finished series 4, so we'll be knackered if they have to go back, as it has been 6 years or so.

Used to be on on a Saturday afternoon here back in the 80's, and always loved it.

Did you watch it as a kid too?

"In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security prison to the Los Angeles underground. Today they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, and no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire The A-Team."

(Typed that from memory. I'm a longtime fan of The A-Team!) Very Happy Cool

This is an '80s show I grew up watching and loving- I remember it being aired early Saturday mornings too. (It seems like it used to be coupled with Knight Rider as well- or at least, I tend to put them together.)

Anyway- yeah, I love watching the escapades of Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith, Lt. Templeton "Faceman" Peck, Sgt. Bosco "B.A."[Bad Attitude] Baracas and of course, Captain H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock.
Very Happy Cool

The casting was perfect as far as I'm concerned- George Peppard always did such an excellent job with Hannibal- Dirk Benedict as Face, and of course- Mr. T as B.A. - he became such a larger-than-life character thanks to this show (and "Rocky III"). And Dwight Schultz as Murdock-all of them were just such a great combination.

It's a series I'd really love to go back and watch in its entirety sometime.... It's been a long time since I've seen it, but it's always a favorite.

Good memory Wink .

My friend told me that they are going to release the series on Bluray. But, I already have the complete series on DVD, so I might pass on it.

Thanks. God seems to have blessed me with a good memory. Very Happy Cool

And I've seen the show a number of times....always love the classics. I'd rather be watching this show than most anything on TV today.

Most definitely.

The only programme I watch from nowadays is The 100. The rest, blurgh.
