Good afternoon. Here is the seventh and final season (1972-1973) of "Mission: Impossible" which is now produced by Barry Crane (former "Mission: Impossible" associate producer who masters the science of budgets over scripts from season 1 to 6--except season 2--, and director from season 4 to 7) and entirely supervised by newcomer writer Stephen Kandel but helped by writer Laurence Heath who produces one episode: "Boomerang". The series carries on dealing with the Syndicate as in the previous season 6, Barry Crane follows the path of his predecessor, reaches the fatal recession and, eventually, the series becomes self-conscious and looses its edge.

Minor changes occur: Lynda Day George is absent ten times in this twenty two episodes season and therefore guest female agents appear as in the hybrid season 4: during seven episodes, Barbara Anderson (former "Ironside" leading actress) poses as ex-convict Mimi Davis who is introduced in "Break!" and also Marlyn Mason posing as IMFer Sandy in "Crack-Up" and Elizabeth Ashley posing as IMFer Andrea in "The Question", one episode ("Imitation") contains no female IMFer, the character of Barney carries a moustache during four episodes ("Two Thousand", "Leona", "Underground", "Speed") and the main theme music is slightly re-arranged with a fast tempo in the vein of the "hip" season 5. In order to renew the locations, the action takes place in San Francisco as for instance "Speed" (a season 5 youth movement drama combined in a Syndicate plot, guest starring Claude Akins and Jenny Sullivan).

This final year entry of Mission Impossible welcomes a newcomer, the beautiful Barbara Anderson as agent Mimi Davis along with veteran greats Peter Graves, Greg Morris, Peter Lupus and Lynda Day George.

After 168 successful missions from original creator Bruce Geller, Jim Phelps accepts the final mission for the IMF. Mission Impossible always placed the bar high for other series with its intricate scripts and that wonderful iconic music theme from the superb Lalo Schifrin! This final season is no exception!

To honor the passing of lead star Peter Graves, the prodigious leader of the IMF series, CBS/Paramount's mission, should they decide to accept it, (and we sure hope they do), is to release the 35 episodes from the 1988-90 series! That would be great news and a nice memorial to this fine actor.

UPDATE: 09.14.11

Great news; Mission Impossible: The 88 TV Season will be out on November 29th, 2011, in time to beat the 4th theatrical MI movie. I'll be the 1st one to pre-order!

I have just purchased the season 7 and is half way through the set great show the IMF used brains rather than brawn to defeat the bad guys. The picture are very crisp considering they are over 30 years old. I took away 1 star because there are NO extras in any of the sets. It really is too bad because all of the original cast is still alive except for Greg Morris & Peter Graves (who by the way passed away in March). So come on CBS put something on the 2nd MI series (1988 version)which starred Graves & Jane Badler.

I can't help it--I love the old series, maybe in reality the world wasn't simpler but the violence in TV and movies was implied rather than in your face. I always loved the way the Impossible Mission team could trick the bad guys and win.

Bottom line? It's a good idea to start with the first series and work your way through to the end. It's my guilty pleasure.

Not a lot of international intrigue, but a lot of capers designed to defeat the nefarious syndicate. The IM Force is always successful, but there are actually some glitches in the execution to some of the plans that they have to overcome. I find those storylines to be the most entertaining. This series is so much better than anything on TV now.

While most series seem to get slightly tired with each new season, this was my favorite (although I haven't seen season 6 since it's not available on prime).
