the French dub of The A-Team replaced the iconic opening theme tune with a tinny sound-alike featuring French lyrics. The most immediate problem being, the original theme tune doesn't have any lyrics, so there was no need to dub it in the first place. They could have simply recorded the lyrics directly over the original music. To make matters worse, the lyrics are completely redundant, since they simply rehash the premise of the show outlined in the opening voiceover and they refer to the team by the rather less dynamic sounding name of the dub itself, "L'agence tous risques" ("The All-Risks Agency") and also as "The Kings of Cool".
