5.0 out of 5 stars Your mission should you chose to accept it!! March 8, 2012
Format:DVD
Thanks Paramount for releasing the 88 and 89 seasons on DVD. Never got to see much of these when they first aired but after having bought all the original sets on DVD these shows are must have. I don't know what the fuss is all about on the quality of the picture. Mine is crystal clear and the sound ain't to bad either. People sometimes forget what it was like in the VHS days and days of tv antenna and no cable!!! The episodes are front line and the acting is superb. My only regret is that there could not have been an 1990 season!! One of my favorite episodes of the 89 season is "Target Earth" which goes where no mission impossible show had ever gone before... IN SPACE!! They should have made a movie way back when these actors were still able to. Way better than this garbage we get today with Tom Cruise!! With this series finishing the run on Mission IMpossible, I just want to thank one of the writers Bruce Geller for many great episode well wrote... Rest in peace Jim Phelps! You will not be forgotten!

4.0 out of 5 stars The mission comes to an (premature) end...... March 31, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The second (and final) season of the revived version of "Mission: Impossible" finally makes it way to DVD. As mentioned by a number of other reviewers, CBS/Paramount have put no effort into ensuring that the picture quality is of a good standard. The results are sadly the same as with the "88 DVD" release. The images are soft and grainy and at times out of focus. What they have included (by way of compensation) are some episode promos and a holiday greeting from the cast. It's nice to get some bonus features which are hard to come by for programs that are more than twenty years old.

Back to the show. ABC decided to renew "M:I" for a second season in 1989. Unfortunately, the network made the decision to take the show out of it's Saturday night timeslot (where it was doing OK) into the super competitive Thursday timeslot opposite NBC's juggernaut "The Cosby Show" which was the number one rated show in the country at the time. The results were nothing short of disasterous. The ratings plummented and ABC then hastily moved the show back to Saturday's but the damaged was already done. The series didn't even complete out the season (only sixteen episodes were made) and "M:I" was cancelled in early 1990.

The errors that were made by the network were sadly compounded by the creative team of "M:I" as the shortcomings in both the scripts and production values became painfully apparent in this season. Nowhere is this more evident than in the two part second season opener "The Golden Serpent". What should have been a home run is marred by some truly horrendous effects that even by the late 80's standards were subpar to say the least.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best shows ever! February 29, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This show brings back memories as a kid that I will always treasure. Each episode blends the proper amount of action, intrigue and mystery, with an emphasis on how each member of the team utilizes their distinct skills to complete each mission. I wish more shows were on television like this, rather than the common rubbish we see out here.

2.0 out of 5 stars 1989 Repeats 1988's Visual Shortcomings February 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Multiple reviews on Amazon have referenced the video quality of the Mission: Impossible - The '88 TV Season released in November 2011. As is always noted with any car's advertised EPA Fuel Economy Numbers, your mileage can and will definitely vary from what's advertised. The same can be said when it comes viewing packaged media (DVD/Blu-ray) at home on our individual video and audio systems. As has been demonstrated time and again, title after title, substandard source materials can never reproduce the best viewing experience possible at home.

A common theme for many of the reviews on Amazon for the Mission: Impossible - The '88 TV Season video quality was less than favorable including mine. I can now report that the Mission: Impossible - The '89 TV Season DVD's which were just delivered this afternoon have all of the same shortcomings. As more than one reviewer had indicated, the DVD transfers were probably made from the video broadcast masters rather than the original film elements which was pretty much standard operating practice in the late 80's. This leads to all of the same issues that plagued the 88 season's release whose faults can be referenced on that title's reviews which I won't duplicate again here.

Understand there is no hidden agenda nor some axe to grind when it comes to Mission Impossible. In the immortal words of Jack Webb: "Just the facts" from many of the reviews which I have found so beneficial in establishing a level of expectation with any or all of the products offered on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the original series... October 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As with my review of the 88 season thoroughly enjoy this (last)set,hopefully CBS/Paramount can locate the original film elements and reissue the 88 & 89 seasons like the pristine quality of the 66-72 set.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original series.
I can see why the new series only lasted two seasons. Some of the episodes were copycats from the original series just changed slightly. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars good show
The remake was good but not like the original. I thought Peter Graves does an excellent job as always with the group he has. Stories are a little dry but still ok.
