Yesterday I was home from work early, so the boy and I got to watch The A-Team. I never really got to see it back in the 80s, due to our TV-less state, but the boy loved the show then and he loves it now. I've grown quite fond of it.
The best part is, of course, the back and forth between Murdock and B.A. Even the boy admits that they're in love. But I've not been able to find any good slash for them. It's all Face/Murdock. Bah.
I think the best A-Team ep I ever saw was the one with Boy George. Yes, Boy George. I can hardly remember the plot, but Boy George sang and of course Murdock was in drag.
Yesterday's ep wasn't so great, but it did have a lovely moment when Hannibal, Face, and B.A. are breaking into an art gallery. They're dressed in black, with stockings or balaclavas over their faces. And B.A. is still wearing 20 pounds of perfectly visible gold chains.
We've been discussing how we'd re-cast the show if it was on now. I figure that Dirk Benedict is now of an age where he could play Hannibal, which would be cool. And I bet Paul Gross would make a good Face, though he's maybe a little old for that role.
I'm having trouble with Murdock and B.A., though. Any ideas?
