The A-Team: Alias Style

Something I thought of while watching my A-Team dvds - Who would the Alias characters (not the actors, but the characters) play if they were cast in the A-Team movie?

Sydney Bristow = Amy Allen (no brainer there and she'd make a heck of a reporter)
Jack Bristow = Hannibal Smith (Once Jack gets some Prozac to make him mellow, that is)
Marcus Dixon = BA (Dixon is the strong, consistent one. The go-to guy. Mr. Dependable)
Arvin Sloane = Col. Decker (Sloane has had 30 years experience at chasing Rambaldi's ghost. Chasing the A-Team should be no different)
Marshall = Murdock (The way Marshall rambles, he'd be very convincing as a crazy person)
Weiss = Face Man (He's more fun loving and personable than Vaughn. He'd do a better job at connecting with the marks)
Nadia = the daughter of the client
Vaughn = Right hand evil henchman of the villain of the episode or the MP that drives Decker's car.

Has anyone ever noticed that pretty much every evil villain of an A-Team episode was a man? Sign of the times if you ask me - 1980's couldn't have evil women in charge unless you were watching Dynasty.

The Battle of Bel Air

I watched this episode tonight because it is the first Tawnia episode. It was a bittersweet experience for me. On one hand, I love the show and everything about it. But on the other hand, I found myself analyzing the clothes, cars, techniques, equipment or lack thereof, and just about everything else through eyes that have seen much more sophistocated stuff in the last 20 years. At one point I actually thought about what the show would have been if they had cell phones. I guess this is what it's going to be like if they ever do the feature film. It will be sad when that day comes. But still, I am loyal to the original and will probably never criticize it.

Maybe You Could Own the A-Team

There's a contest involved if you'd like a chance to win Season 2 DVDs.

I got the Season 2 dvds in the mail today. I can't wait to watch them, but it may be Friday until I can have a chance to do that. Alias is on tonight and tomorrow is a work day. Curtain Call is one of my favorite episodes and it's on this set. Oddly enough, there is an episode of Knight Rider on these dvds. Someone is trying to increase sales of that show's dvds.
