George Peppard was supposed to be the star of The A-Team, but it was Mr. T that took over the spotlight.

Add B.A. Baracus to the list.
Oh, very much so. He really became a mega-star practically overnight. From all accounts, Peppard never really got over having to play second fiddle on what he thought would be his show.

I've never seen Blake's 7. It's never been released in the U.S. It makes me feel all left out when the British people get to talk about it.
It not aired on local PBS stations, it was also released on VHS, so us old folks got to see it. Unfortunately, it has never been released on DVD for the US market. There are, however, "ways" (* cough* ) including watching them on youtube HERE. While I love it, mostly for producing Kerr Avon, the best character EVER (slight bias there), if you choose to watch, you must keep in mind that the budget for this show that ran from 1978 to 81 was roughly the US equivalent of $100. And I wish I was exaggerating.
