I never said it wasn't created for Mr. T; I said Peppard THOUGHT it would be his show.
The thread is about "unexpected fan favorites" (i.e. supporting characters) "who take over the show" (i.e., they go from being the supporting character to the star despite the original intent of the series).
George Peppard was supposed to be the star of The A-Team, but it was Mr. T that took over the spotlight.
You agreed, stating:
Mr. T did not take over the show. The show was about him from conception. Peppard's ignorance of his intended role in the show in no way means Mr. T took over. Mr T was the star from the beginning.
