    This week: ads in TV Guide, the source being two issues from January 1983.

    I wasn't expecting this kind of subject matter to keep on giving the way it did, but some of these ads are just unbelievable. I figure you'll want to see more of these in the future, so I made this Part 1.

    By the way....Ruegger Part 2 is next week. Honest.

    The A-team Woo

    So, according to the ad...
    The BA in BA Baracus stood for Bad Attitude? That kinda sucks.

    You know, "World of The Dark Crystal" is also a special feature on the regular Dark Crystal DVD. No need for tape hunting.

    Not really, but still... I've never actually seen the A-Team besides some clips and references so there you go.

    "Honey, what should we name our baby? I have a list: Carl. Steve, John, and Bad Attitude."
    "Oooh! Oooh! Bad Attitude!"
    Obvious, I know, but lame nonetheless.

    IMDB says that the B actually stood for "Bosco" (I don't know about the A). "Bad Attitude" really sounds like something Mr. T would say, though.

    And I never knew that Dirk Benedict didn't play Face in the pilot.
