Product Description

Complete second series of the famed late-1960s series concerning the IMF (Impossible Mission Force), a team of secret agents working for the US government. A typical episode saw the team listening to a recorded message on a reel to reel tape player that outlined their mission before declaring 'this message will self-destruct in ten seconds' and then going up in a puff of smoke. Though the Cold War was never mentioned, missions frequently featured imaginary eastern European countries and the political theme was unmistakably of its time. Episodes included: 'The Widow', 'Trek', 'The Survivors', 'The Bank', 'The Slave (1)', 'The Slave (2)', 'Operation 'Heart', 'The Money Machine', 'The Seal Charity', 'The Council (1)', 'The Council (2)', 'The Astrologer', 'Echo of Yesterday', 'The Photographer', 'The Spy', 'A Game of Chess', 'The Emerald', 'The Condemned', 'The Counterfeiter', 'The Town', 'The Killing', 'The Phoenix', 'Trial By Fury' and 'Recovery'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series 2 - Gets Better 24 Jun 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having thoroughly enjoyed S1, S2 just gets better - more intiriguing and complicated plots and more of the regulars completing their missions together.

As in S1, my favourite is Cinnamon Carter. She has more to do in this series as well.

Forget about Tom Cruise's laughable efforts and concentrate on the original. In most cases the best and it is most certainly in the case of the TV series. One of the all time classics that will be watched over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roll on series 3,4,5,6 and 7! 13 May 2007
Format:DVD
The first series was excellent.

But it gets better and better as they find their feet.

As with the first box set there are no extras at all to get in the way, no commentaries or flim flam just one of the best series ever made, presented perfectly without any messing about.

I'm having an excellent time reading Patrick White's book and all it's insights whilst watching this classic series. If you can get hold of the book I recommend it as much as the series themselves. It's better than any DVD extras I've ever seen and properly researched.

This series with the loss of aloof genius Dan Briggs and with the introduction of the determined and resourceful Jim Phelps just gets better and better perfecting the missions of the first series and adding even more ideas.

Basically it just doesn't get any better than this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than any Tom Cruise's Missions 29 May 2007
Format:DVD
I fondly remember watching this series on TV and kept boring my kids with how good they were. We saw the Mission Impossible films and was sadly disappointed. We couldn't wait for the original series on DVD.

Now we watch them over and over again and then watch them on Sky!

This is the business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good morning Mr Phelps 20 May 2010
Format:DVD
This season marks the debut of the late Peter Graves as team leader Jim Phelps.Like the title it's virtually impossible to completely review this large season.Suffice to say the stories in general are clever and inventive very well written and crafted with an nice balance of action and suspense.Seasons two and three are probably the strongest if the season length was shortened maybe the quality of the later shows would have held up better.As a big fan I recommend the whole set with seasons
one and moreso two and three being the strongest.For those not having seen the series please don't use the movie versions
as a benchmark or comparison these shows are vastly superior and at the current price excellent value.

By E. Heckingbottom TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another thrilling ride into the past - and another series that I totally loved! Can't wait for the rest to come.

Suspend all disbelief and settle back for a ride into the past! This series continues the amazing fun of its predecessor - light hearted, but FUN. I ordered it even before I had finished watching series 1, and have had trouble limiting myself to 2 or 3 episodes at a time - it's been soooo addictive!

As with the first series, don't expect to be convinced by it, just as you don't expect to be convinced by James Bond, Harrison Ford and by a great many more 'up-to-date' films and DVDs. just relax and enjoy it! The characters are just as good as you will remember from the past, and the adventures they get into are FUN!

Ok - so it's incredible (in the trues sense of the word) that the same small group of Americans can infiltrate themselves into a range of different nations and can be classed as locals - but forget about that! Forget about the fact that it seems dated - just enjoy the history, the drama and the characters! Enjoy the naivety of it all, and relax!!!

I enjoyed it so much that I have gone on to order series 3, and will continue to order any others as they come out!!!! It's WAY better than the recent films with Tom Cruise - for all the extra technology they have been allowed to employ, and inspite of his looks!

I just have to ask myself one question. How could they possibly turn Jim Phelps into a baddy when they made the film?

5.0 out of 5 stars MIssion Impossible Original Series 2 20 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy watching the original series, they have good plot lines and stories which are enjoyable to watch and keep you interested. Some of the sets and scenes obviously look a little dated now, but on the whole the acting is still good. There are plenty of episodes to watch and they last for around 45-50 minutes, which is great when you don't want to watch a 2 hour long film.
