The A-Team is known for a few things: explosions, over the top violence, cartoon-like action, gold chains and... more explosions. The A-Team was originally slammed by critics for its comic-strip violence and lack of realism, but it was the viewers, not the critics, who made The A-Team a huge success. 

The four-man band of Veterans changed the way many looked at violence on TV. With five seasons of action-packed moments, some interesting situations and a few enemies both on and off the screen, many fun facts came from the series. Let's take a look at a few fun facts about The A-Team. All of these fun facts are interesting, but they aren't all true.
