5 stars for an excellent show

"When it first came out on TV on January 23rd, 1983, THE-A-TEAM ranked 10th on the Nielsen rating (The Percent of all TV-equipped homes tuned to the program on an average night, as measured by Nielsen Media Research). The Second season rated even higher ranking 4th out the best 30 TV shows, The 3rd season rated 6th and the fourth season rated 30th. To me that is a very good and respectable record. In fact, THE-A-TEAM is number 98 on the Top 100 Series of all Time until the 2002- 2003 season.

A-TEAM: Cool series from a Blind-Buy fan

"Hello, all of you "A-Team"'ers out there :) I bought this set when Season 1 was released as a "blind-buy" purchase, having never seen this series when it aired in the 80's or in syndication (I know...hard to believe...:) ) I bought the set in memory of my Dad who watched this show after he was retired from his job. I remember laughing at Dad when he told me he never missed this show. Now, the laugh's on me :) I love this series! Amazing...plus I've had the cool experience of watching these eps for the 1st time on DVD. Currently, I'm viewing Season 3. Season 4's in the mail. I've heard some forum talk that Season 5 wasn't up to speed compared to the previous 4 seasons. So, I'm not certain I'll gamble on Season 5 yet. I haven't noticed any difference between S1 thru S3; I've loved every episode of the ones I've seen up to this point. Be that as it may, "The A-Team Rocks" :) (Hard to believe a "Baby Boomer" said that, right?) :)"
Nice season Dvds have problems

"Again Universal Studios has done it.Some episodes hasn't got preview some has sound effects missing and the menu episode summary has been ripped off as well the episode chapters.The season starts with a 2 hour premiere called Judgment Day.The rest of episodes are fun to watch and include some guest stars such Boy George,Hulk Hogan and others.The episode formula is always the same:the bad guys threatens the nice and innocent people,the A-Team is called and hired,then they move on the goons and finally their boss is beaten after the team is locked up in some warehouse with plently of tools and acetilene torch to make a Mcgyver style a weapon or defense.Of course noone is hurt and all the bullets never hit anyone.The show success is based on the chemistry between the characters and how they interact.Until fall the Fith and last season won't be released and I hope that a nice docummentary on the phenonmenon can be included."
A serious decline in quality
Inspector Gadget | On the trail of Doctor Claw | 09/06/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)
"By Season Four, the people behind The A-Team just put less and less effort into the story and opted for the same old, same old formulaic nonsense with fake car chases, phony crashes, obvious stunt doubles and poorly integrated stock footage.
Only about half of the episodes are worth watching, while the rest are so mundane to the point of being down right awful. The 'Uncle Buckle-Up' episode in particular is just horrendous and the infamous 'Cowboy George' (my eyes, MY EYES!!!) really is as bad as you've heard. I haven't seen it for years (I skipped right over it on this box set) but I remember wishing that the ground would just open up and swallow me, it was that bad. At one point you can even see Dirk Benedict barely containing his embarrassment.
The best episodes are not necessarily the ones with the best action and stories. When the show makes the most of out the four characters (usually with an amusing running joke with Murdoch) it can be highly watchable. A young Hulk Hogan even joins in for a couple of episodes.
The over-zealous Decker is replaced by equally incompetent General Fullbright in this season but he ends up being killed-off in the last episode (further proof that people DID die in this show), which is actually a complete rip-off of Rambo - First Blood Part II [Blu-ray], to the point of even hiring the same actors for the same kind of roles.
Thankfully, things really picked up for Season 5, though I can still only reccomend this to hardcore A-Team completists.
The DVD presents the show in absolutely shocking quality. Shot on 35mm film there are a couple of shots that are surprisingly crisp and colorful but I'm afraid that the rest of it is grainy, washed-out and as dull as dish water. The thin Mono soundtracks fail to impress also, and there are no worthy extra features."
