Review for Mission Impossible Season 1:
With its combination of Cold War villains and James Bond-like techno-gadgets, Mission: Impossible was an instant hit when it premiered on September 17, 1966. The series was the brainchild of creator/producer Bruce Geller, whose formula for seven successful seasons included a well-chosen ensemble cast, noteworthy guest stars, and a flexible premise that inspired clever plots twists and a constant variety of "international" locations (mostly filmed on a studio backlot). This is the only season to feature Steven Hill as Dan Briggs, leader of the top-secret counter-intelligence team known as Impossible Missions Force (IMF). As the no-nonsense Briggs, Hill (better known for his later role on Law & Order from 1990 to 2000) began each episode by sneakily retrieving the dossier and recorded instructions (voiced throughout the entire series by uncredited actor Bob Johnson) for the IMF's latest assignment. "Your mission, should you decide to accept it" and "this recording will self-destruct in five seconds" quickly became pop-cultural catch-phrases, as Briggs routinely selected his preferred teammates based on their mastery of practical skills. Your mission--and you shouldn't hesitate to accept it--is to enjoy this classic series all over again! --Jeff Shannon

Review for Mission impossible Season 2:
Gone was Steven Hill as Dan Briggs, and in his place the supremely confident and smooth Peter Graves as new team leader Jim Phelps, whom most viewers identify with the series. Carrying out the missions assigned from a pre-recorded voice on the self-destroying tape recorder was magician and master of disguise Rollin Hand (Martin Landau, who moved up from guest star to regular cast member with this season), top model Cinnamon Carter (Landau's real-life spouse Barbara Bain, who won three Emmys for her work on the show), electronics genius Barney Collier (Greg Morris), and all-purpose strong man Willie Armitage (body builder-turned-actor Peter Lupus).  Guest stars include Anthony Zerbe, Paul Winfield, Fritz Weaver, and Sid Haig, but it's the team itself that shines the brightest, especially Landau and Bain, who exude the breezy charm of the series itself (though both would depart the show by the following season). --Paul Gaita

Review for Mission: Impossible Season 3:
Season 3, should you decide to accept it (and you definitely should), was Mission's most accomplished. It garnered six Emmy nominations, and an Emmy for Barbara Bain, her third consecutive win, probably for "The Exchange," one of her finest hours, in which, breaking series format, her character is captured and psychologically tortured to discover for whom she works. As always, the first five minutes of any Mission: Impossible episode are the coolest: the lit fuse signalling Lalo Schifrin's indelible theme song, the opening-credits montage teasing the action in the upcoming episode, and Jim Phelps (Peter Graves), in some nondescript location, receiving his covert mission (usually to some non-existent, but real-sounding country as Povia or Costa Mateo), on that self-destructing tape. --Donald Liebenson

Review for Mission: Impossible Season 4:
Foil the invasion of a democratic country? No problem. Rescue members of a royal family from their would-be usurper? Piece of cake. Replace the irreplaceable Martin Landau and thrice-Emmy-winner Barbara Bain, who departed Mission after its third season? Now that’s impossible! But in this classic series’ fourth season, the veteran and rookie members of the Impossible Mission Force still put on a good show. --Donald Liebenson

But with Cinnamon (Barbara Bain), Rollin (Martin Landau), Willie (Peter Lupus) and Barney (Greg Morris) on his side, how could he ever fail!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great box set 21 Jan 2011
First, I would like to say that Mission Impossible was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. I haven't seen it on TV in many years so watching these episodes is a real treat.

The box set arrived only 1 day late so delivery was not really an issue considering I live in upstate New York.

The set itself is terrific. The box is almost a foot high, about 14 inches wide and about 10 inches deep. It weights a hefty 6 1/2 pounds. The lid is attached at the rear of the box and lifts up from the front. Each of the 7 seasons is housed in a black box about 10 inches high, 6 inches wide and about 1 1/2 inches deep. Each box has "MISSION IMPOSSIBLE THE COMPLETE ORIGINAL TELEVISION SERIES" on the front in red and white writing along with the season number. The season number is also stamped in red at the top of both sides of the box which makes it easy to see when all the boxes are in the larger outer box. One the back of each box is a quote from the show.

Inside each box is a red dvd case that slides out of the box easily. The dvd case is well constructed and resembles a notebook with the season number on it and an image of the famous burning fuse that appears at the beginning of each episode..

In the inside left cover is a booklet with an episode guide. The dvds are housed in sturdy plastic trays with 2 dvds to a tray. The trays are attached at the top so they can be flipped up to get to the next tray. A really cool thing is that if you remove the last 2 dvds there is an image of the famous reel to reel tape recorder used in the series. Very well done!!

In addition to the seven seasons there is a brown cardboard folder that looks like a postal envelope complete with postmakr dated August 15, 1955.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mission Impossible Complete Series Box Set 12 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase
A really well presented box set featuring every episode from the classic series. The quality of the DVD's is excellent, better picture quality than most digital TV stations. What makes this box set even better is the bonus features that come with it. For example a 2 part episode from the 1980's series, which you cannot but on its own. Good price and deal on amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars Has the 47th disc got all the special features. 20 July 2010
Unlike the american dvd release which has 46 disc's, this release has 47! According to the description of the special features on different sites it contains the following: Select episodic promos,A 1966 CBS Fall Preview Show,a 2-Part episode of the 1980s Mission Impossible television series "The Golden Serpent" Parts 1 and 2,and a Photo Montage with Vocal Version of Mission: Impossible Theme Performed by the Kane Triplets. I don't know if there is more features [that would be great for example adverts, interviews with cast members etc!]. There is a [not so clear] picture of the contents on Amazon France which looks interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars One problem 2 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
I found the box set of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE to be teriffic entertainment. But, am deducting one star for the following reason: the bonus disc is housed in a cardboard sleeve - but idiots at Paramount/CBS secured the disc by gluing it to the inside of the sleeve - despite trying to remove the glue with soft lint and luke warm water there is still residue which renders the disc partly unplayable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mission Impossible 23 Mar 2014
By Steve
Verified Purchase
Sometimes it does not pay to revisit a childhood favourite and I think this possibly may be the case with this series.

Don't get me wrong it is far from being a turkey or anything like it but for me it has dated which is very understandable given its age.

May be its the sort of series one views on a quite Sunday night with the comforting knowledge that at the end of each episode the IMF Team will have achieved their objectives.

Also the opportunity to even own this iconic TV series could be sufficient to justify the small investment in this impressively packaged box set.

I hope that the above helps potential buyers of this classic series.

Steve
