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?
