"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 words open one of the most famous TV series of all time. The A-Team was about 4 escaped fugitives from a crime they did not commit: Col. John "Hannibal" Smith, their heroic leader, in charge of making the plans, Lt. Templeton "Face" Peck, the team's conman and womanizer, Cpt. H.M. "Howlin' Mad" Murdock, an insane pilot who acts as a comedy relief, and Sgt. B.A. Barracus, played by Mr. T in his role of a lifetime. Together, they fight evildoers, escape the military, and create catchphrases in the process. A classic for all ages, The A-Team should be watch by everyone.
