The A-Team is an American action adventure television series about a fictional group of ex-United States Army Special Forces who work as soldiers of fortune while being on the run from the military for a "crime they didn't commit". The A-Team was created by writers and producers Frank Lupo and Stephen J. Cannell. Despite being thought of as mercenaries by the other characters in the show, the A-Team always acted on the side of the good guys and helped the oppressed. It remains known in popular culture for its cartoon-like use of over-the-top violence (in which people seldom got seriously hurt), supposedly formulaic episodes, featuring the ability to form weaponry and vehicles out of old parts, and its distinctive theme tune. The show ran for five seasons on the NBC television network, from January 23, 1983 to December 30, 1986 (with one additional, previously unbroadcast episode shown on March 8, 1987), with a total of 98 episodes.
In Everybody Hates Hugo, when discussing the group of survivors who left for The Black Rock, Charlie mentions the fact that only a select group of survivors go on important treks or quests, leaving behind many other survivors to simply wait at camp. In doing this, he refers to the main group of survivors as "the A-Team", referencing the popular 1980's television series.
