The A-Team

The A-Team was a 1980s television show about a group of fictional ex-US Army commandos on the run from the military. To support themselves, they operate as mercenaries who are hired almost invariably by the oppressed to battle their oppressors. The show has cult status among some viewers.

The A-Team was one of a wide variety of successful creations from prolific television producer Aaron Spelling[?]. Spelling is known for having a particular skill at capitalizing on momentary cultural trends, such as the machine guns, cartoonish violence, and joyful militarism of this series, which are now recognizable as trademarks of popular entertainment in the mid-1980s.


"In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. They 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"
