Mr. T as a snowflake is Brandon Bird's new 'T-mas' card design

Man I loved Mr. T as a kid. Him and the whole A-Team!

“I love it when a plan comes together.”



[ETA] Re-watching the A-Team with the kiddo was great… the last couple of seasons were kind of weak though. I kind of think the episode where Boy George randomly shows up to play in a small Texas town was sort of its jumping the shark moment.


Yeah in hindsight, a lot of 80s shows are cheezy, cheap production, and formulaic. And unrealistic. Has the A-Team ever shot anyone ever? (To be fair, they used the Ruger Mini-14 which is notorious for being not very accurate.) Or the one shot knock out of a bad buy sentry, and the poorly choreographed fist fights.

But still, that can be fun. It should be a Maker favorite, right up there with MacGuyver, as every episode had them making a tank out of a bath tub and some old steel drums with a catapult made from the parts of a windmill - or something like that :wink: I also loved Murdock because he was weird and crazy.


Of the 2, I’d pick the A-Team… MacGuyver is great, but it got rather samey after the second season or so. But Richard Dean Anderson is a national treasure…



I agree!

I probably remember more MacGuyver episodes, since I was older.


Yeah, me too, but I watched more A-Team, honestly, than MacGuyver. I adored that show.


Really? A person after my own heart, then.

Then I should share this with you: On the way home, I saw a black van that said - A-Team Window Cleaning. It had water drops where the bullet holes would be, and had the red stripe painted on the side.

Hold on - let me see if they have a website… oh they do, and they have a pic of a van.


Welp, if you never need someone to clean your windows, I know who you plan to call!

That’s awesome!


I just hope they don’t drive up and shoot the windows out… “Welp, all clean! Let’s go get some milk and cookies, BA!”


But they’d miss, so no worries there at least!
