Product Description

Product Description

All 22 episodes from the sixth season of the popular adventure 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 outlining 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 are: 'Blind', 'Encore', 'The Tram', 'Mindbend', 'Shape-Up', 'The Miracle', 'Encounter', 'Underwater', 'Invasion', 'Blues', 'The Visitors', 'Nerves', 'Run for the Money', 'The Connection', 'The Bride', 'Stone Pillow', 'Image', 'Committed', 'Bag Woman', 'Double Dead', 'Casino' and 'Trapped'.

Good morning. This is the sixth season (1971-1972) of "Mission: Impossible" which is again produced by Bruce Lansbury (from season 4 and 5) and supervised by top writer Laurence Heath who also produces six episodes. The series returns to its genesis (the original theme music, a sophisticated leading lady) and solely focuses on the American gangsters threat also known as the Syndicate: the IMF now does Feds jobs instead of Secret Service operations.

There're substantial changes: find a small crew of four IMF agents, a new and real "glamorous" leading lady named Lisa Casey (played by Lynda Day George) who also replaces the master of disguises Paris, the departure of Dr. Doug Robert (which appears once in "Encore") and character Barney who becomes a major asset for the plots and displays his acting knacks, especially in "Mindbend" as a brainwashed fugitive, "Blues" as a junky soul music performer in which he sings twice: "Judy's Gone Now" and Otis Redding's "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay", "Image" as a Tarot dealer and he plays twice a master of disguises (actually, his new talent was first shown in the season 5 "The Hostage"): in "Underwater replacing a gangster's henchman and in "Bag Woman" replacing a gangster's right-hand man. A brand new director popsup named Leslie H. Martinson who achieves the masterpiece "Invasion" and will blossom next season.

Above all, this is a showcase for actress Lynda Day George who not only act--her best efforts are highlit in "The Bride" and in "Committed"--but performs a song ("The Gentle Rain") in "Trapped" and we witness her husband Christopher George in "Nerves".

By Season 6, MI had dispensed with its last A-rated character actor (Leonard Nimoy) and instead utilized the core team in a genuine team effort, week after week, battling organized crime on the domestic U.S. front.
By 1971, with the Vietnam war edging toward defeat, CIA-style adventures behind an increasingly permeable Iron Curtain had become culturally unacceptable. The real enemy was within: narcotics, the Syndicate, Mafiosi in impeccably pressed suits. The violence was more realistic, the plots tightly written and able to exploit every facet of Paramount Television's back lots and environs. Masks were faded out and Lynda Day George provided a far less impossible option of a disguise expert.
The results could be stunning - William Shatner (no longer Captain Kirk) playing an ageing mobster sent back nearly 40 years to reveal a murder he committed was an all-time classic and forerunner of every "Hustle" genre plot.
Mission Impossible became far less implausible and its rating success warranted a seventh and final season against massive odds of internal studio politics.
Buy the DVD set, watch the fun unfold and - most importantly now in the week after Peter Graves' death - celebrate Jim Phelps' genuine all-action hero and infallible mastermind.
Tom Cruise was always fighting a losing battle...

I'll give this only four stars, as i found the reconversion of the IMF into a domestic crime-fighting machine a little too one-dimensional. The "beyond the reach of conventional law enforcement agencies" setting became a little tiring and i found myself crying out for one of those ridiculous missions in a country like "Luxania" or "Povia". However, there are plenty of good episodes. There's even room for one, as Thomas Rucki quite rightly states, veritable masterpiece. Oddly, we revert to the original theme tune for the opening titles. We even have one of those extreme oddities: Jim's mission briefing being done on an LP, for the first time since season three. Kenyon Hopkins does many of the music scores and his edgy, jazzy work serves to embellish.

This is a stripped-down IMF team of three men plus a "beautiful make-up artist" called Casey (Lynda Day George). If truth be told, the magnificently-maned LDG is actually very good in her role. She has some juicy parts to play ("moll", grifter, French redhead, Irish bride, psychiatrist, Corsican, singer), is always convincing and very easy on the eye. (Dressed far more modestly than Lesley Warren in season five.) Jim Phelps is doing even more of the heavy-lifting, as there's no Rollin Hand/Paris accomplice, and seems to be having great fun. Barney gets to play a few parts which need more than technical expertise and Willy is restored after his stop/start season five.

High points would be "Encore", with William Shatner. (One i remember from its ORIGINAL airing.) Utterly ridiculous, but great fun. "The Tram" is a brisk episode with Felice Orlandi. "Mindbend" is moderately disturbing. Shame it has such a very cheesy wrap-up. A "young" Donald Moffat and Bill Fletcher are good villains.

Great season! It's the one before the last when the producers agreed to follow the opinions of the Public and do more episodes on 'matters at home' which means more episodes on the 'syndicate' - the mob. and that's when their fall in raitings occured too....But, Linda Day won Grammy for her good acting on those 2 last season, and she started at that season so as I see she acts very good! The episodes also include some famous names like William Shatner. I liked the season, and there is also more 'room' for 'Willy' to play and talk more, which he didn't do so much before(talk - he usually speak very little) and also where Jim gets more involved. You will just have tp see ot! Remember this is 1971 when this season aired - a New age, perhaps more pessimistic. the age when I was born('73) and that too appears on the serie. in the episode. the New cars :), the atmosphere.
On the pverall this is very enjoyable season where any of the actors plays more than they ever did and the episodes. I know I so far like the serie and im on DVD Nr. 2
Just a must buy! '5' point for certain!
