Full Throttle TV- A-team, Stingray & the Highwayman

We launch season 2 with one of the most beloved action shows of the 80's, The A-team.  We also discuss Stingray from creator Stephen J. Cannell and Glen A. Larsen's The Highwayman.   All three had the theme of renegade lawmen who took on corruption to save the common man (and woman).  Of course, not only do we discuss the show but we also dig into what made the vehicles they used so awesome.
