The A-Team followed the fortunes of four Vietnam veterans, who had been wrongly court marshalled. Living in the LA underground, they survived as soldiers of fortune. The A-Team were Colonel John 'Hannibal' Smith played by George Peppard, Sergeant Bosco 'B.A.' (Bad Attitude) Baracas played by Mr T (Lawrence Tero), Lieutenant Templeton 'Faceman' Peck played by Dirk Benedict and Captain H.M 'Howling Mad' Murdock played by Dwight Schultz. The show stuck to an amazing formula, borrowing from the greatest movies- ending with an enormous battle with lots and lots of explosions. Each character had their strengths: Smith was a master of disguise, Peck was a charming con-man, Murdock was the team's pilot, whilst Baracus provided driving and engineering skills.
