1987: The final mission for The A-Team

After five seasons, NBC action series The A-Team aired its 98th and final episode. George Peppard and Mr. T (in his starmaking role) were among the high-spirited mercenaries who, after being falsely accused of war crimes, traveled the country helping people out of jams through liberal applications of violence and catchphrases. The show’s final season had concluded its regular run in December 1986, but a previously unaired episode, “Without Reservations,” fired up the famous van once more. -A.D.
