We really like the Mission Impossible Complete Series. We like the actors and the shows. They're decent: no bad language, etc. and always an exciting story line! And there's enough here to last a long time.

This series has more acting and fewer special effects than the later movies of the same name. It has a lot of the family or team spirit that Star Trek fans got from that original series. It des NOT rely on special effects to make a very engaging and entertaining program.

7/2014 Update:
It takes a us while to get through this many seasons, but just wanted to say again what an enjoyable series this is. Our kids range from 15 to 22 and they all thoroughly enjoy watching it with my wife and I.

The packaging is holding up well, and while it doesn't necessarily fit on the shelf as nicely as a standard dvd, it just fits the idea of the show so well that it is easily overlooked.

The series is so unique in that it has almost no character development, as most modern series, IMHO, get overrun with.
It is just action, ingenuity, creativity, drama, suspense, and intrigue at its finest.

Original review:
Great show! Can't say enough good things about this show. Very intriguing, suspenseful, and enjoyable to watch. Very good mix of actors, who play their parts very well. Hope I don't offend Steven Hill fans, but I was glad to have Peter Graves replace him after he decided to leave the series.

This is a great and complete collection of this tv series. It is a must for those who remember this sixties, seventies and eighties series.

I really enjoy the "Dynamite" packaging as well.

My parents have been telling me for years that the Tom Cruise Mission Impossible movies were nothing compared to the original series. I did not understand them until my mom bought me the 6th season of Mission Impossible earlier this year. After watching the first episode of that season I was hooked. I watched the episodes back to back whenever I had a chance.
Since I finished that season I looked for the complete series and found it, but after seeing this collector's edition that includes the remake seasons of the 80's I knew that I had to buy this particular box set.
After the very first episode you will be hooked, sometimes I choose to watch these episodes instead of current shows on TV. While the Mission Impossible movies are good, I do not think that they do the TV series justice. After watching the original TV series ,I totally understand the outrage from fans over the movie version of the series.I love the packaging, it is quite clever. Any Mission Impossible fan will love this. The picture quality is great. You should definitely choose to accept this mission.

and awesome theme and incidental music! Top-notch acting from the cast and guest stars. Ahead of its time in a way as no title cards are used for the episodes. Love how there is absolutely ZERO interest in the characters personal lives, only the plot and mission at hand. Today Jim Phelps would be divorces, Rollin Hand would have a parent with Alzheimer's. Willy might have a wayward daughter and Barney might have a harmonious home life beyond compare. Love the teamwork aspect of the show and the sets at the "Forty Acres" Desilu lot are to guess at over and over again. I watched this with a young friend and they could not accept the validity of the show, calling it "preposterous." They want more "reality" when in the end a TV viewer should just be concerned with being entertained. All in all, the packaging is great and the price was right, less than a buck per episode. I am working my way through season 3 so perhaps my opinion may change by the time I reach the 80's revival of the series but for now I am all eyes and ears.

Watched the series way back in 76 when I was 10 yrs old. Think it was Season 7 Ep Two Thousand that really left an imprint in my memory. It is now 2010 and what surprised me is that my son 12 yrs old is now hooked on the series. He had seen some re-runs on TV when younger but probably could not understand the plot. I was surprised he got interested in this as he grew up with Ethan Hunt the movie version & I thought he might find this TV series archaic. Regardless, we even named him Ethan after the movie's lead character (Dan, Barney or Paris did not appeal to us!) but I personally think the TV series has much more substance than the movie franchise. The opening Montage of scenes from the current episcode with the classic theme song is another nostalgia moment so typical of the 70's shows like Space 1999. My son is also hooked on that tune humming it on and off. Strangely, I failed to convert him to Space 1999. What is missing though would be some Extras , Behind the scenes etc. I own the Space 1999 box set and though produced much earlier in 2002, it comes with these and a SFX section on how the Eagle models were filmed.

I am 38 years old so MI was before my time. have always been a James Bond fan, and a fan of older TV and movies. shows like Combat! Knew of this TV series,but never really saw it. Read the reviews here, and the 98.00 price drop, and thanks to that, and the reviewers I am hooked. great show great stories. at times unbelievable, but it is a TV show an escape. as long as what we are watching doesn't test our intelligence like reality shows do. Meaning the American viewing crowd are drones, and we can make them watch anything like CoCo and ice then it is fine. Hate when people say a show is far fetched its an.escape a fantasy a wish I could have an adventure like that, and this show provides that without the stupid 3 d effects there shoving down our throats these days. Didn't mean to harp and go off on a tangit lol. thanks again to the reviewers and Amazon. Very pleased with my purchase, and would have paid more!

I'm a huge fan of MI. The DVD's are great. I didn't expect the 88-89 seasons. It was a gift for myself.

This set contains all the Mission Impossible shows that I loved when it was first aired. The quality is very good and the continuity is excellent.

This is one of the best TV shows. ( But do not by this Complete Series Deal). You can get all the seasons one by one much cheaper. Over $100.00 cheaper.
I have all the seasons, and much cheaper then they are trying to sell the complete series for.
This review will self destruct in 10 Sec. Good luck Jim.
