Rated TBC by the BBFC


The complete first three series' (62 episodes) of the '80s action adventure show featuring a disparate band of mercenaries who help the poor and blow up the rich. The formula was that John Hannibal (George Peppard), cigar-chomping master of dubious disguise, was leader of a group of soldiers of fortune who weekly ran into one of an endless parade of hard-working, downtrodden victims of greed. The team agreed to help then fought amongst themselves about how to do so before pulling together and finally constructing a battlewagon or fantastical device out of everyday items, with which they eventually emerged victorious with Hannibal cackling 'I love it when a plan comes together'. The leviathan B.A. Baracus (Mr. T), a huge, grumpy bodybuilder would continually threaten to murder 'Howlin' Mad' Murdoch, a kooky, mentally unstable former chopper pilot, whilst 'Faceman' Peck (Dirk Benedict) was the handsome, dashing front for the group.
