FINALLY: Hill, Landau, Bain, Morris, Lupus AND NO CRUISE! 10 Sept. 2006
By Michael K. Beusch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When Mission: Impossible, the movie came out, I was expecting a big studio update of the classic TV show. What I got was yet another Tom Cruise star vehicle where he preens and postures and seizes the spotlight at the expense of everyone else in the film. To say I was disappointed is an understatment -- I was incensed! The IMF team killed off? Jim Phelps a bad guy? You've got to be kidding me! The TV series' concept of an elite covert operations team working together to save the United States from enemies, both foreign and domestic, was bastardized so Tom Cruise could flash his 1000 watt smile and save the day all by himself. I was so angry, I vowed to never see the film again or any possible sequels. It's a vow I've kept to this day and will continue to keep.

I'm sure that Mr. Cruise and his represtatives had something to do with the delay in releasing the original series on DVD. Thankfully, now that Paramount has shown old Tom the door, we can now see the series that started it all. Peter Graves' Jim Phelps is missing from the first season (Steven Hill of Law and Order plays Dan Briggs, the leader of the IMF during the first season). But Martin Landau as Rollin Hand, Barbara Bain as Cinnamon Carter, Greg Morris as Barney Collier and Peter Lupus as Willy Armitage are all present. Unlike most of the spy stories from the 1960's (and unlike the Tom Cruise film series), Mission:Impossible, the TV series, took a more cerebral approach to its stories. There's no James Bond in these stories -- just a team of agents who covertly depose all types of dictators, terrorists and traitors without leaving any evidence of their involvement. Just as Columbo turned the TV detective genre on its ear so did Mission:Impossible turn the spy genre on its ear.

Here's hoping that those who only know Mission:Impossible from the films have a look for themselves. I daresay they'll realize that the TV series is vastly superior to the film series and that the complete absence of Tom Cruise is a very, very good thing.

Your mission is to watch this set. 7 Sept. 2006
By Daniel Lee Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
What can be said about this show except release of the series on dvd is overly long overdue. It is true that this volume will take many by surprise since Peter Graves as Jim Phelps is not a character. Look for Steven Hill, who many may remember from Law and Order a few seasons ago. The show improved with age but this is still to good to pass. Enjoy this show if you watched in the day or if you were not around when it was on. Look for lots of great guest stars, but watch for soon tightly wound suspenseful plots. This is the original and still best.

Good Morning Mr Briggs...... 5 Sept. 2006
By givbatam3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Those of you somewhat familiar with this classic television series may note that the title of this review is different than they remember. That is because, in this, the first season, the head of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF) was played by Steven Hill in the role of Dan Briggs, whereas in all the subsequent seasons, Peter Graves as Jim Phelps was the leader. Hill gives a different flavor to the role, less physical but more cerebral.

This first season is also different than the following ones because like most series, the show was finding its bearings. Whereas most adventure shows in the 1960's were expected to have a generous helping of car chases, fist fights and gun shootouts, MI creator Bruce Geller wanted a different type of show, one that is plot oriented (as opposed to "action oriented" or "character oriented") and which requires the viewer to pay attention and think as several different threads of the story which are occurring simultaneously are drawn together at the end. Thus, we see in the first season some episodes do have the car chases and shootouts, and we do see some banter between the characters, but these things were quickly phased out as the show settled into its familiar, unique format that lasted seven seasons, as the entire program focuses on the IMF's elaborate

plans to stop some evildoer.

My favorite episodes from this season are "Operation Rogosz" and "The Frame". The first is a story unfortunately quite relevant to today, in which an international terrorist tries to release lethal bacteriological agents into the Los Angeles water supply. The other is about a plan by the IMF to eliminate a powerful Mafia boss (note how the word "mafia" is never used for

"political correctness" reasons, but rather "the Syndicate" or "organized crime") by making it seem that he was cheating on his partners in crime. Neither of these episodes have any "action" of the type I described above, but they are both riveting with outstanding acting and directing (director Leonard J Horn was particularly effective in "Operation Rogosz") and intricate stories.

I do have some reservations about certain premises of the show, for example, although I have no expectation about the stories being "realistic", I do find situations where an IMF team member (usually Rollin Hand played by Martin Landau) impersonates somebody by wearing a mask looking like that person to be beyond the realm of credibility. Also, whereas in some episodes, the IMF is able to overthow dictatorial goverments, stop or prevent wars and the such, and so when their entire weight is used to stop one man (as in "The Frame") it sort of makes you feel sorry for the poor guy since he doesn't stand a chance against them (in later seasons, as a result of the unpopularity of America's war in Vietnam, it became "politically incorrect" for the IMF to interfere in foreign countries so most of the stories became modified forms of the IMF removing some Mafia figure and this became stale after a while).

This show has become a classic and will be remembered far into the future, just as Sherlock Holmes has. I hope more seasons will be brought out in the future on DVD.

FINALLY! The return of a television classic and the end of the Tom Cruise tyrrany. 3 Sept. 2006
By Charles Wilcox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I have been waiting for years for this series to come out on DVD. This show was to secret agents what CSI is to crime drama and House is to medical mystery. Granted, the plots are a lot more fantastic than what you might see today; but stylistically, there are vague similarities, such as storylines that are plot-driven as opposed to character driven. You know very little about the personal lives of the members of the IMF team, save that they are not above vicious and sometimes even brutal tactics to bring down their foes -- so much so that the viewing audience often felt sorry for the villain of the week because the IMF messed them over so badly. Granted, the dialogue is a bit stagy, but the series is still years ahead of its time. A word of warning to those expecting Peter Graves in this collection: His character, Jim Phelps, did not appear until the second season, brought in to replace first season lead Steven Hill; but since this is a plot driven show, chances are, you won't miss Phelps. Martin Landau as Rollin Hand more than makes up for his absence. Besides, the first season episodes are some of the best of the entire run. And the subject matter has suddenly become topical and current with all the world unrest today. Sometimes it's hard to believe the show is a product of the sixties. In the pilot episode, for example, the IMF has to stop an "unfriendly foreign power" from attaining a nuclear weapon(sound familiar?)and a dictator who bears an eerie passing appearance to Saddam Hussein (actually Martin Landau in heavy makeup). One wishes there were a real IMF today . . . P.S. Ethan Hunt doesn't appear ANYWHERE! And for those of you who have only been exposed to the Tom Cruise fare, I urge you to give the original series a try. Please, see what the first and the best Mission: Impossible is all about.

The Peak of 1960's TV from the USA! 25 Dec. 2006
By William K. Lasley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
To this day, no TV series has demanded as much attention from the viewer. Instead of dumbing us down, this show insisted that we heighten our senses. The basic structure of a MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE episode as they are now remembered was still forming in the first season with various plot styles being tested. This super-sophisticated series got better and better throughout the second and third seasons, but expect great things from this daring, ground-breaking, successful, and popular first year. One reviewer has written that the episodes seem dated with 1960's-style TV production. On the contrary, these "mini motion pictures" pushed television filming to new heights of artistic and technical sophistication. The frequent rapid-fire cutting/editing resulted in most episodes containing double the number of shots found in any other TV series episodes. The intricate plots cannot be followed by those numbed by today's "think-it-for-you" method of storytelling. The meaning of certain events as they occur throughout the episodes will be lost to "viewers" who don't relish the requirement of complete concentration. These factors are a large part of what makes MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE great. The show is a rare opportunity to be more deeply involved in your entertainment than you probably ever have before.

What makes this DVD set all the more a discovered holy grail is that the picture and sound quality are absolutely superb. MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE could never have looked this good, even when it was new in the sixties. And you have the option of listening in original mono or remastered 5.1 stereo! Wow, that opening music is awesome, being one of the greatest of all TV themes. Another reviewer has complained about the lack of bonuses in the set. The episodes ARE the features. They were and still are a wonderful bonus gift in this world of entertainment sameness. Sure, no series is more deserving of study and documentation as this one, but the episodes stand alone as supreme quality product. Extras would be greatly appreciated, but are not necessary, as MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE on DVD is indeed an awesome, super-cool, long-awaited, much anticipated revealing of a long-lost holy grail.

Good luck viewer...
