Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this cult favorite 1980s action series is about a group of mercenaries. Consequently, there are plenty of explosions, guns, and other weaponry -- though almost no one is ever hurt, and it all feels pretty tame by today's standards. The guys fight on the side of good, but they often use deception, theft, and firepower to accomplish their missions. Though each episode includes a segment in which the group is under attack, the tension is never intense, and the team's successful outcome is never in question. Worth noting: Women don't fare very well in this show. They tend to be either gullible accomplices or absent helpers.

Sexual Content

Vague discussion of sex; Faceman often deceives women by gaining their affections flirtatiously.


Every show contains over-the-top cartoonish explosions, gunfire, and other weapon usage, though no one is ever seriously injured or killed (with one or two exceptions). Some rare smacks or punches or other physical violence. In one episode a bad guy smacks a woman on the cheek as punishment for helping the team. Plenty of verbal sparring among team members.


Pretty mild, of the "hell" and "damn" variety. Some name-calling/taunting.

Social Behavior

As the title suggests, the men rely on teamwork to help people in need, and everyone is important to the mission at hand. They're always fighting for a good cause, although they often use deception, theft, and firepower to accomplish their missions.


The famous A-Team van is a GMC.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Hannibal usually has a cigar in his mouth.
