    The fun may be unadulterated, but what about the soundtracks? If all is well, Magnum and KR will definitely be placed on my "list." [​IMG]

    Man, am I an A-TEAM fan [​IMG] As I've posted previously on the A-TEAM thread, I got S1 of this series on a blind-buy having never previously seen these during their original airings. I loved all of it, remembering my Dad who used to watch them in syndication after he retired. Nope, I haven't been in a time capsule nor was I hijacked to a Class "M" planet located in one of the outer spiral arms of Galaxy NGC2997 during the 80's [​IMG]
    I just never got around to watching this series originally. S2 already pre-ordered [​IMG]

    Not sure about Knight Rider....been on the fence about getting that one.

    Didn't the A-Team Season 1 have a MSRP of $59.99? If so then them reducing the MSRP is great [​IMG]

    We'll put it this way - Knight Rider is about as 80's as the A-Team was. If you liked the one, then you'll probably most likely enjoy the other.

    Me - I cant wait for both.

    Jeff, as you probably know, the second season of the A-Team will include an episode of Knight Rider as a bonus. It'll give you a chance to see it again to make up your mind. I'm leaning towards taking a pass, but I'll give it a shot via the sample episode.

    I think you'll probably enjoy A-Team S2 as much as the first season, and that you'll find S3 worthwhile. I will get S4, but things were getting rocky. S5 was really bad, but I'll get it since I'm a diehard A-Team fan.

    Tony, Greg, thanks for the info [​IMG] I forgot about that bonus DVD that's in the next A-TEAM pack. Cool. I have a feeling that I'll be getting Knight Rider. I like David H and that series, from reading posts on this forum, seems to have a following similar to the A-TEAM gang.
