About General Fulbright[edit | edit source]
General Harlan “Bull” Fulbright was introduced to The A-Team in the fourth season taking over from Colonel Decker.
General Fulbright had a great passion to capture The A-Team. He wanted to succeed where others had failed over and over again. He believed greatly in the cause of getting The A-Team locked up and behind bars. It would had been hard to predict at the start of season four that General Fulbright would come to think The A-Team are innocent.
In General Fulbright’s last episode of season four he hired The A-Team to rescue his unknown-till-then daughter from Vietnam. He needed The A-Team’s help to do this and, being the good guys that they are, they rescued his daughter for him. After the rescue General Fulbright was convinced that The A-Team were wrongly accused and shouldn’t be fugitives. Unfortunately General Fulbright was shot during the rescue of his daughter and died.
This was a surprise ending to the season and left the fans hanging on for more. It was nice to see another side of General Fulbright and that someone from the Military believed The A-Team.
In season five, with General Fulbright dead, up stepped the very devious General Stockwell.
