If you grew up in les années 80 (the 80’s) or are old enough to remember them, there is no way you have not seen or heard of this American series. You probably watched it in your own language, either doublée (dubbed) or with des sous-titrages (subtitles). In France, it was known as “l’Agence tous risques“, and has known endless rediffusions (reruns) way into the 90’s, and is probably still broadcasted in some channels such as “Serie Club“, à la plus grande joie de ses fans nostalgiques (much to the delight of its nostalgic fans)!
“L’Agence tous Risques” (“The A-Team”)
The man who conceived this series is Stephen J. Cannel, who left this world only a few months ago. He was also the one behind the creation of numerous series, such as the all-too-famous “Colombo“, or “21 Jump Street“, which shot Johnny Depp (the “partenaire” of French singerVanessa Paradis) to worldwide fame.
It’s actually pretty amusant (funny) to notice that the original introduction of the series was all instrumental, whereas the French version somehow felt the need to sing along the music!
