This show is a blast to watch, I just wish we had some show-specific bonus features (and an episode from the next set doesn't count). (read entire review)
Three episodes were unplayable on my set due to the poor quality of these DVD-18s. The episodes were "Knights of the Road," "Beverly Hill Assault" and "Trouble Brewing." I actually got excited when I put the last disc in the player and hadn't had an issue yet, but then 3 problems on the last disc. The placement backs up my previous theory that the affected episodes will be the second and third episodes on a disc, which are the episodes before and after the layer change, and the ones closest to the outside of the disc.

Summary of "Season 2 - Mr. T says, ": I didn't mention this in my review of Magnum P.I., but Universal has done something interesting with both sets. Normally the "proof of purchase" for the set is part of a booklet, or the packaging, which annoys the anal collectors (like myself) that don't wish to cut up part of the set to take part in a promotion. Universal has placed little "proof of purchase" stickers over the UPC symbols on the individual slim cases, allowing the consumers to take part in a promotion and not destroy their set in the process. It's a great move by the company!
I was a bit sad to see Amy gone from the show, and in such an odd manor as well. I read the producers wanted to focus on the guys, and didn't feel like having a woman tagging along. I'd love to see some interviews with the cast for the third season, but I'm not holding my breath. (read entire review)
Season 1 - Finally, I get to watch this! (6/06/2004)
Summary of "Season 1 - Finally, I get to watch this!": Thanks to Universal I can enjoy something that my parents robbed me of as a child. Do I sound bitter? Of course I do! I'm getting over it though, thanks to these DVDs. I enjoyed Dwight Schultz on Star Trek: The Next Generation, but I think I like his Murdock character better. He's a total nuttjob, or is he? And who can forget the lovable Mr. T? I remember his cartoon series in the 80s (I was allowed to watch that), and I was happy to hear that he beat cancer when he was 49. Then there's Dirk Benedict, probably best known for playing "Starbuck" on Battlestar Galactica, before the character had a sex-change.
Universal owns so many of the 80s action-dramas, it's nice to see them start with The A-Team. I can't wait to watch the second season. (read entire review)
