Even though I can watch “The A-Team” on hulu.com whenever I want, I enjoy sitting in front of the TV — instead of a computer screen — to see my favorite characters, Hannibal, B.A., Face and Howling Mad Murdock, as they conquer bad guys all over again.
The formula was always the same: Victim hires A-Team, A-Team sizes up bad guy(s), A-Team gets captured, A-Team makes some fantastic mechanical means of escape or weaponry of some sort, A-Team prevails.
The show is dated in some respects (it aired 1983-87), but it was way ahead of its time in ingenuity.
If you've watched the show, you probably know the answers to these questions:
1. What was Col. Decker's first name? He was played by Lance LeGault.
2. Who played Triple-A, Amy Amanda Allen, the first newspaper reporter to join the team?
3. Name three famous singers who guest-starred in show episodes.
Answers: 1. Col. Roderick Decker.
2. Melinda Culea.
3. Isaac Hayes and Rick James in “The Heart of Rock N' Roll” and Boy George in “Cowboy George.”
