The totally unofficial A-Team electronic mail newsletter

Submission address:
Administrivia: Nicole Pellegrini,
DATE: January 15, 1995

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Welcome again to all old subscribers, and to several new
subscribers who wrote me over break. I hope to see this
group make it through the coming year and continue to grow.

First, a bit of administrivia (as usual):
Most likely, due to time constraints on my part (now that
I finally have a research project and will be living out
of my lab...), the newsletter will go on a bi-weekly
schedule, instead of every week, unless for some reason
the volume of mail every week goes up significantly.

On to other better things...
Thanks to those who have sent in their surveys. However,
so far there haven't been enough responses to compile the
results into anything meaningful. So, to be a pain, I'm
going to send it out again with this issue and give another
few weeks for responding. If you don't want to/can't answer
all the questions, that's no big deal, just answer what you
can. I just want to know a little more about who is here,
what type of material you might be interested in seeing here
in the future, that sort of stuff.

Info for memorabilia collectors: I recently got two
catalogs from a guy named Howard Rogofsky, one is of old
TV Guides only, the other included old issues of many
different magazines and tons of other tv/movie/music related
memorabilia. He has a fair number of A-Team items, including
stuff like Jigsaw puzzles, posters, photo yearbooks, that sort
of stuff. Unfortunately, most of it very expensive and
therefore out of the budget range of yours truly. Like,
several magazines I would have liked to have picked up
because of interviews with cast members all ran $40-60 per issue!
Anyway, if anyone if interested, his address is:

Howard Rogofsky
P.O. Box 107
Glen Oaks, N.Y. 11004

The big catalog is $3.00, and the TV Guide catalog is $2.00.

Coming next edition, I promise: The text of the first big
article from the U.S. TV Guide on The A-Team. Has some
nice, if short, interviews with the cast, and was written
during the filming of the first Marla Heasley episode,
"The Battle of Bel-Air."

Now I'm off to finish unpacking and then watch some A-team
(what else!)

until later...

Thanks for the back issues, and for putting me on the list. I'm printing
them all out for a friend who sadly lacks access to the Net. _She's_ the
true fan and collector, but I recall vividly the time my sister and I
spent watching that show and calling my friend at the commercials. We
originally started watching the show because we were big Battlestar
Galactica fans. You can imagine our reaction when the Cylon first
appeared in the opening credits!

I haven't finished reading all the back issues, but I do have a few
comments that I hope haven't been covered yet:

The van started out black and red, but changed to black and silver with a
red stripe in season three (I think it was season three. We don't get the
shows here so all this is pretty hazy for me).

I have "Alone in the Dark" on tape. It is pretty creepy, and yet pretty
cheesy at the same time. It is odd to see Schultz to play such a serious
character. I kept expecting him to start acting like a loon. I'm used to
it now :) He plays a psychiatrist who is trapped in his home by a trio of
lunatics who escaped during a blackout. Talk about role reversal! I'm
pretty sure it is available on video.

Keep up the good work!

To: Nicpell

Hi. I'm a big A-Team fan. Was really happy to find a download of an A-Team
newsletter on AOL. Had trouble reading it though. I'm on a PC, not a MAC.
Please send me information on subscribing to your mailing list.

I thought I should mention, I have access to a really nice A-Team episode
guide. I did a multimedia 'zine, DISTASIS, five years or so ago. I still
have about a dozen copies available if anyone's interested. It has a very
complete episode guide for A-Team that runs about 48 pages single spaced. It
was put together by Michele Lellouche and is the best guide on the A-Team
that I've seen. My 'zine also have a couple of A-Team stories. One by Susan
Garrett, who writes wonderful A-Team stuff.

As you can probably tell, I'm really interested in fanzines. I've done a lot
of A-Team fan stories and have been having trouble finding places to send
them recently. If anyone knows of 'zines or places to send A-Team fiction,
it would be greatly appreciated. Even have an A-Team script I wrote that
never got produced. They changed the format of the show just about the time
I finally got it submitted.

Also, thought you might like to know that when Dirk Benedict was asked if
there'd ever be any new A-Team TV shows or specials at the Battlestar
Galactica 15th Yahren Reunion, he said no way. Well, it would have been nice
if they had a revival. Hear, a Galactica revival is still a remote

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Laura Michaels

As someone who recently aquired a copy of DISTASIS, I must say
how pleased I am to have heard from Laura and to have her on the
list! I would encourage anyone interested in A-Team fan fiction--
or Star Trek, Gallactica, Quantum Leap, Star Wars, Dr.Who, and cross-
universal fan fiction to write her and get one of those remaining
copies!! The fiction is GREAT, especially a hilarious A-Team/Star
Wars crossover script. And the episode guide is great too, noting a
lot of little in-jokes, movie/tv references, weekly ratings for each
episode, stuff like that. Also, it contains an extensive bibliography
which gives any obsessive A-Team fan plenty of research material to
look up.

Another good episode guide appeared in the magazine Epi-Log,
in issues #18 and #19, May 1992 and June 1992. If you want REALLY
detailed plot descriptions, check this one out. The guide comes
complete with a lot of large, great pictures of the team from seasons
1-5. Anyway, if you want to try to locate a copy of these issues,
the address for the magazine is

Epi-Log magazine
PO Box 1322
Dunlap, TN 37327

And if you write please include an SASE to be polite.
