Touchdown or fumble? Touchdown. The popular action-adventure series had premiered just a week before, and it quickly proved to be a ton of fun and built a fan base that's still thriving today, although it remained in production only through 1986. A film based on "The A-Team" was released in 2010. Dirk Benedict, left, George Peppard and Mr. T epitomized the show's true 1980s style.
