The A Team (1983)


Watched the first disc of The A Team last night. It was hilarious and completely awesome. I love Murdock. He's completely crazy, but maybe he's not. It almost seems he's only crazy so he has a place to live (ie a mental institution) and everytime the team need him, they have to go to the mental institution and put on some lie about how the government needs to do tests on him or whatever. Also found out that Dwight Schultz (who plays Murdock) also played Barclay in Star Trek The Next Generation and Star Trek Voyager. He wasn't in very many episodes, but he seems to be one of my most memorable characters
One thing I didn't realise, is there is a female in the team. A reporter names Amy Allen, who in the pilot episode hired The A Team to help her find someone. I don't know how long she is going to stick around, and I can see something between her and Face happening, some sort of romantic-ness.
Also George Peppard, who plays Hannibal, was actually Audrey Hepburns' love interest in the movie Breakfast At Tiffany's.
And Mr T is just awesome.
