There was a TV program called the A-Team where they are ex-military vietnam veterans who were unjustly convicted of a crime & then escaped to become Soldiers of Fortune in L.A.. They usually help people who are being harassed by badies. Almost every episode they are captured by the badies who put them in a garage or other facility that has all sorts of welding equipment, & odds and ends that can be made into weapons. They then turn the tables on the badies & save their good guy clients.
This show is an example of the badies who always seem to put off killing the good guys when they have the drop on them. You would think that they would learn & just kill the good guys; but no they wait & the good guys win. Goldfinger has it right when 007 is strapped to a table with a laser cutting toward the private parts of 007; when 007 asks "Do you expect me to talk?" Goldfinger replies ,"No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!" Of course, he doesn't kill 007 but at least he had the right idea!
We have a channel "MeTV" which shows old time shows like the A-Team. They are enjoyable without the sex that seems to be required in modern shows. So if you need a good guy winning fix; turn on the A-Team & rest your rational mind!
