A Team, The Easter Egg - Familiar Face

In the intro to the popular 80's hit tv show The A Team, you see the Face Man played by Dirk Benedict, looking quizzically at a guy in a CYLON suit as he walks past.

The CYLONs were characters from the TV show Battlestar Galactica in which Dirk Benedict had a starring role.

Here is what we have decided... 1. It was "Cylons" 2. The show was called "Battlestar Gallactica" 3. Dirk played "Lt. Starbuck" 4. This is not an egg, it is actually a clip from an episode. ---------R.I.P.--------- George Peppard 1928-1994 ---------R.I.P.---------

Most TV shows take clips from existing episodes for their opening sequence. That clip most likely came from one you guys haven't seen yet. No, he doesn't say anything, just has the "Don't I know you look?". Yes, all of Spyder's Battlestar Gallitica info is right and it is an egg because not everyone would catch it. I'm old. I've seen all of these shows.

It was in the opening credits. I should know--my brother was hopelessly addicted to this show and I could never forget. They even played the sound effect that went with it.

The name of the episode with the Cylon was called "Steel" There was a scene shot at Universal Studios in Hollywood. That's where the Cylon walked past Face. I don't think any words were exchanged.

the reason that the cars all go the same way is because when a car is modified for the stunt, there is USUALLY only one place where they can cut the hole into the car safely for the driver. In the hole is placed a rather solid piece of an old telephone pole. The pole shoots out of the car with enough force to cause the car to flip over...

This was a clip from a show that was apparently taken out when it went into syndication. Many syndicated shows have a minute or two taken out more commercial time or whatever. Anyway, Face was on a movie set and the Cylon walks by. Its been a while but I believe he says something like "Haven't we met before?"

No, that is not true at all. They are at the park at the beginning of one episode (i forgot which one) and the cylon walks by and face just points at him, doesnt say anything, and no, it was never taken out, it aired with the episode. They wouldnt take a clip the edited out and put it in the intro. --Spyder Go read the Disscussion board here. http://www.spyder2003.cjb.net

how come if a car is blown into the air in any a-team episode it flys through the air in the same way every time.

I am a big A team fan. I may be imagining this but that robot thing is Hanibal in one of his disguises - like the crocodile thing he also dresses up in the credits. I do have a major egg though and that is when the A team are trapped in the middle of a jungle in a tin shack with nothing inside except a clapped out ford anglia hw come they can build a tank in about half an hour using welders, angle grinders etc. all powered from what? my bet is that the managed to convert BA's combination of bad attitude (you crazy fool) combined with his bad acting (I love it when he shows glee by clenching his fist and punch into his other hand!). Oh whilst I am on a role what about another egg - why does the A team van that BA drives go in a straight line even though he always moves the wheel from left to right with a grin on his face. Also BA is supposed to be really strong - I like the way that even when he lifts something - any normal person could lift he pulls the strangest of faces grunts and sighs - Oh its great I really do love the entertainment value that the A Team gives me. I luv it when a plan comes together (one of my favorites was when they built a machine gun that fired cabbages - the badies would fall over it was very tacky - a bit of a let down that one actually)
