I used to watch the A team all the time when it came on TV in the 80's and recently have watched them all the way through. But season 5 completely sucked! You could clearly tell it was a show that was desperate to make changes just to stay on the air to please executives at NBC....for another measly 13 episodes? How pathetic!
Of course, making a show where you have a special forces unit that could not shoot a gun straight and hit or kill someone and only seem to "shoot in front of them" was in itself, insanely stupid.
Not to mention cars in chases that instead of running into the back of other cars...always did a flip! Oh and you were lucky if anyone could hit even a tire now and then...no matter if they are shooting point blank range and BA's van is not even touched! Unreal and fairytale like!
But at least in the first four seasons....you had a very funny group of guys going around helping people. It was more of a comedy than anything serious.
Then you have season 5.....where the A team is caught tried and convicted of murder. (That was a GREAT one for kids to see...who made up a lot of the A team fanbase) And the Hannibal having to bow himself down to some idiot retired general and do his bidding.
Sorry, but season 5 absolutely su8cked and in my opinion, if they were going to end the series, they should have ended it with some kind of dignity....not the sorry last season the show endured!
