Just as "M*A*S*H" was coming to an end, "The A-Team" hit airwaves. The NBC action-adventure series, which first aired in 1983, followed the members of a fictional U.S. Army Special Forces Unit who were court-martialed for "a crime they didn't commit" and went on the run to help fight against those who abused their power against the less fortunate.
Mr. T famously played Bosco "B.A." Baracus, where he had several memorable catch-phrases and became one of the most recognizable faces on TV during that time. Baracus was featured alongside the pack's leader, Lt. Col. John "Hannibal" Smith (George Peppard), Lt. Templeton Peck (Dirk Benedict), and Cpt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock (Dwight Schultz). The show ended in 1987. It can be streamed for free on Tubi or with an Amazon Prime Video subscription.
