I miss Martin Landau and Barbara Bain, but Nimoy does a fantastic job of pumping up the cast.
Michael Zachary
The IM Force always had the toughest missions, the coolest gadgets, and they worked as a unit to accomplish the assignment successfully.

You step into the fourth season (1969-1970) of "Mission: Impossible", produced by two men: Stanley Kallis from season 3 and newcomer Bruce Lansbury (former "Wild Wild West" producer) who brings with him writer Ken Pettus, and, above all, it's creator Bruce Geller's final input before his departure. Witness if you will two paramount changes: a new master of disguises named Paris (played by Leonard Nimoy) and a legion of female agents but only one appear almost regularly (six times): Tracey (played by Lee Meriwether aka Bruce Geller's protégée) and she gives her best performance as fortune-teller Mrs. Vinsky in the three parter "The Falcon". You'll find three top episodes: "The Controllers, Part I & II" (guest starring David Sheiner and Dina Merrill), "The Falcon, Part I, II & III" (a superb monarchist and adventure story written by scripts genius Paul Playdon and guest starring John Vernon, Diane Baker and Noel Harrison), "Submarine" (guest starring Stephen McNally), and a selection of good ones: "The Crane", "Fool's Gold", "Gitano", "The Choice", "Orpheus" (written by scripts genius Paul Playdon and guest starring Albert Paulsen and Jessica Walter), "The Numbers Game", "The Code", "Robot" (guest starring Malachi Throne and Larry Linville), "The Double Circle" (guest starring Anne Francis). Actor Leonard Nimoy shines in three episodes: "The Code" as Che Guevara-like revolutionary El Lider, "The Falcon" as flamboyant magician Zastro, "The Choice" as Rasputine-like charlatan Emile Vautrain. Supported by producer Bruce Lansbury, writer Laurence Heath introduces private episodes centered around the love affair of IMFers: Paris ("Lover's Knot") and Barney ("Death Squad"). The music scores are very strong, especially two: "The Controllers" composed by Jerry Fielding and "Submarine" by Lalo Schifrin.

Have watched the first two seasons so far. Gorgeous prints and sound. Remarkable how a mid-sixties show holds up and doesn't come across dated. Imagine the great writers this show employed because every week for seven years they wrote a one hour sting movie!In this fourth season Martin Landau left the show and was replaced by Leonard Nimoy just off the cancelled Star Trek series ( dumb Paramount executives! )His character was named Paris. Ironically, Martin turned down the Spock character and here we now have Nimoy replacing HIM on Mission Impossible!.. By the way Paramount, do we have to thank the ghost of Lucille Ball ( cause it was created by Desilu) for not screwing the public on the price by splitting it into two half seasons and charging the same price as an entire series like you have with Gunsmoke, Rawhide and the Untouchables? Shame on you. You should stop this practice immediately. We have only so much money to spend on DVD's. The Untouchables is four years, Rawhide is eight, and Gunsmoke is twenty. Please stop! PLEASE!!!!Bloodspiller: Book One: Warriors of Palahia SeriesBloodspiller: Book One: Warriors of Palahia Series

Being a looong time Mission fan, this season was my personal favorite. It told the viewers we can make a huge cast change & still hit it big.

Unfortunately, this was the last season of the high ratings. Just when the show was high on the hog, the departure of Bain & Landau didn't set well with some, but was welcome for others.

If you could lump all of the things that made Mission great, the episode that shows this is here: Submarine.
Voted a fan favorite & an award winner, it compiles all that made Mission good.

The whole set contains great a transfer, excellent sound quality & all that is to love about the greatest spy show ever.

A true diamond in anyone's collection.

It is almost impossible to discuss the fourth season of Mission Impossible, without mentioning the contract dispute that caused the husband and wife team of Martin Landau and Barbara Bain, to end their three year association with the highly successful program. Paramount Studios refused to meet Landau's request to rise his salary, bringing about the last minute addition of Leonard Nimoy, who was available after winding up a three year stint as Mr. Spock on Star Trek. The show's producers did not find a true replacement for Barbara Bain, who had won three consecutive Emmy awards for her portrayal of Cinnamon Carter. Instead a number of actresses including Lee Meriwether, Anne Francis, Jessica Walter, Antoinette Bower, Julie Gregg, and Barbara Luna, filled in. In nine of the twenty six episodes, there simply was no female IMF member.

With Landau's and Bain's departure, the show had a new look. Jim Phelps (Peter Graves) was still running the operation, but having no one cast in Bain's role, created problems both for the cast, and for the audience who both never knew what to expect, week to week. As The Great Paris, Nimoy assumed the roles normally reserved for Landau. When impersonating a key figure, Paris employed conventional methods of disguise more often than the rubber masks, that the writers had overused with Landau. While having no regular female IMF member created a huge void, it did provide the opportunity to expand the roles of Barney Collier (Greg Morris), and Willy Armitage (Peter Lupus).

Deception and masterful con jobs are what Mission Impossible is all about.
