CineTV Contest: "What's your favorite underrated TV series?"
I like a lot of TV series, but my favorite is probably "The A-Team." I love it. It's so good.
You've probably heard of the movie version of The A-Team. But there was a TV show, too. And that's where I first fell in love with the characters. They were just so cool! I think people tend to forget about this one because it aired before they had VCRs and DVRs. You had to watch shows live or not at all. So you'd see it on reruns years later.
But that's why it's still so great. Because if you didn't catch it when it was new, you can now watch it whenever you want. Plus, the show has stood up really well over time. It's got an awesome cast. In fact, most of the actors are no longer around today. That makes it even more special. You get to experience their performances for the very first time.
Plus, the story is so interesting. This team of misfits gets captured by the military and forced into doing their dirty work. But then they escape and start taking down bad guys as The A-Team.
The show is full of action, but it also has some comedy mixed in. And it's got a great soundtrack, too. The theme song is catchy and fun. I love how the writers did something different with each episode. Some were serious. Others were funny. They kept things fresh and exciting every week.
A group of soldiers called The A-Team are sent to prison after being framed for crimes they didn't commit. Once they're released, they go on the run from the law and become criminals themselves. However, they eventually find a way to clear their names and help people in need.
This series stars a lot of great actors who have gone on to bigger roles. But it also features a few relative unknowns. Tim Dunigan, who plays the main character, is one of them. Other members of the cast include Dirk Benedict, George Peppard, Dwight Schultz, and Mr. T.
The A-Team was originally a book series written by American author Stephen J. Cannell. He wrote six books and then turned them into a TV show. The series ran from 1983 to 1987 and spawned two movies.
In this series, the team of soldiers (also known as The A-Team) work together to help those in need. They do it all while trying to clear their own names.
I've seen the movie version of The A-Team. But I prefer the original TV show. It's got a lot more heart than the movie does.
There's no real plot to speak of. Instead, the show focuses on action. And the best part is, you never know what's going to happen next. You can always count on there being plenty of explosions, car chases, shootouts, and fistfights.
And if you're lucky, you might even see a plane crash or a helicopter explosion. These guys are pretty much unstoppable.
But despite the constant action, the show isn't all about fighting. There are plenty of moments where the characters stop to talk to each other. They even share a few laughs along the way.
