FF – My A Team

We’ve recently introduced my 2 favourite real-life boys to a bit of our childhood. It’s amazing how different kids’ tv was in those days. So I thought I’d introduce my 2 favourite fictional boys to the same bit of nostalgia. They seem to have enjoyed it…

My A Team

“I ain’t goin in no plane, fool!” Luke shouts, tying the broken crate onto the wreck we found.

“D’ya fix the transponder, BA?”

“I don’t actually know what that is,” whispers Luke, dropping out of character.

“Doesn’t matter, we gotta finish this tank before those mudsuckers get here.” Matty chews the popeye cigarette that’s acting as his cigar and props the scarecrow back up. “Look lively, Face, we need those cabbage guns ready.”

Face slumps again but Hannibal leaves him because the local air ambulance flies over at that moment.

“Murdock’s back. I love it when a plan comes together!”

  1. Great characters, well done.

  2. Ah, I remember the A-Team and Mr. T. Lots of action. I miss the Dukes of Hazard too, especially Daisy. 🙂

  3. You have no idea how much I love this! Saturday evenings as a kid, looking forward to The A Team with a fish supper for dinner. Heaven! Thanks for that reminder 🙂

  4. I used to love the A-Team! Fun stuff…

  5. I can’t think who you’re referencing in this

  6. Dear Jen,

    You’re of my children’s generation. I remember watching the A-Team every week with them. I love your slice of nostalgia and grinned with your ending line, “I love it when a plan comes together.” Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    • I love a bit of happy nostalgia, Rochelle. It’s only rewatching that I’m realising just how formulaic they were, but maybe that was the appeal – it’s nice to know hat you’re going to get.

    multiple personalities, gotta love them… or is that fear them????

  8. Yep, the A–Team were a wild lot. I think you captured the hilarious feeling of the capers they got into.

  9. The A Team was way after my childhood, but I remember having a wild old time being Robin Hood, or Maid Marian, depending on who got to make the choices each time. I can still remember the feeling and smells of the patch of bushland behind our house where the game took place. Great voices in this story. Lovely.

  10. A blast from the past, brilliant!
