7 July 2001 | by bbally81See all my reviews

I love this show,ever since the A-team was cancelled T has been taken lousy roles in movies (except D.C CAB,Toughest Man in the World and JUDGMENT)but this was great i first saw it on my sattalite dish on Israel 2 channel in 1994 and loved it a lot of Mr.t fans consider it a disapointing comeback and short lived.COME ON!!!!!!!The show stayed on the air for 3 seasons and that is pretty good is you ask me,the T'ster deserves an EMMY for his role a former boxer and current private detective.I've watched his since he first started,while i was in England(the 2nd country after USA that Mr.T became popular in)i was pretty young,but thanks to his cartoon show i loved him.I hope our Egyptian T.V stations bring the show to our screens just like they did with THUNDER IN PARADISE.(We were the first Arabic country to show it.) Original MR.T Fan from Egypt: Badre Bally MY REGARDS TO ALL THE MR.T FANS OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
