What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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'.

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".Read more ›
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...
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.Read more ›
