Ron Mayo’s take on the A-Team
Issue no. 1 | August 17, 2020
When I was a kid, I remember watching a TV series called “The A-Team” (Created by Stephen J. Cannell and Frank Lupo), which aired on NBC from 1983 – 1987. It was an awesome series that was eventually made into a movie in 2010. It was a show about four special forces team members who were sought out and hired because of their ability to work together and use each of their individual strengths to help the team accomplish their mission no matter how impossible it seemed. As a teenager I was captivated by the storyline and how every episode drew me in as the team had to work together and rely on each other to solve a series of problems to accomplish their mission. Although the team members were so different in how they approached the problem, it seemed like in the end all four of them were able to add something to the team that nobody else could. On the outside they looked like a group that could never work together, but somehow, they were able to trust each other and even rely on each other to create an outcome that no other team could.
