    ‘Ten years ago 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 stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire… The A-Team.’

    These heroes for hire, who were framed for robbing the Bank of Hanoi (which they actually did, but under the orders of their commanding officer), escaped from prison and went on the run. It was an odd bunch, these characters. Hannibal, always smoking his cigars and a master at disguise. Templeton Peck, better known as Face, using his good looks and charm to con his way into anything. Especially the ladies ;). Sergeant Baracus, B.A. (which stands for Bad Attitude..well...) who could fix almost anything but was afraid of flying. And then there was the brilliant but slightly disturbing 'Howling Mad' Murdock, who they broke out of a mental institution whenever he was needed.

    97 episodes where made, the show ran from 1983 till 1987 and won 3 Emmy Awards.
    Brings back good memories hearing the theme song!

    If you see the show now, it's hilarious! The stunt doubles don't even look like the actors and they never ever hit anything. But in 1983 I didn't see that. Loved it.
