Product Description

The head of the "Impossible Missions Force", a top-secret government group of operatives, starts a tape recorder and finds out about his latest assignment. Throughout most of the series, they would have to stop some petty dictator or powerful bad guy from whatever evil plot they had against the U.S. or Democracy in general. The elaborate use of electronic gadgetry, masters of disguise and detailed plans that require split-second timing made this tv show an "on the edge of your seater"!

Amazon.com

The classic Impossible Missions Force lineup made its debut in Mission: Impossible's sophomore season (1967-1968), which is preserved in this essential set for classic TV fans. Gone was Steven Hill as Dan Briggs, and in his place the supremely confident and smooth Peter Graves as new team leader Jim Phelps, whom most viewers identify with the series. Carrying out the missions assigned from a pre-recorded voice on the self-destroying tape recorder was magician and master of disguise Rollin Hand (Martin Landau, who moved up from guest star to regular cast member with this season), top model Cinnamon Carter (Landau's real-life spouse Barbara Bain, who won three Emmys for her work on the show), electronics genius Barney Collier (Greg Morris), and all-purpose strong man Willie Armitage (body builder-turned-actor Peter Lupus). Among the 25 adventures carried out in this seven-disc set: "The Seal," in which the IMF uses a trained cat to assist in the recovery from an important statue from thief Darren McGavin; "The Town," with Phelps discovering that Communists have overrun an entire hamlet; and "The Slave," in which the team tangle with a Middle Eastern slavery ring. Guest stars include Anthony Zerbe, Paul Winfield, Fritz Weaver, and Sid Haig, but it's the team itself that shines the brightest, especially Landau and Bain, who exude the breezy charm of the series itself (though both would depart the show by the following season). Sadly, the second season set includes no extras. -- Paul Gaita

At last, the much anticipated second season of Mission Impossible. This is where Peter Graves takes over from Stephen Hill as Jim Phelps. Although Mr. Hill did a fine job, I would venture to say that most of us who remember the series place Mr. Graves as the head of the MI force.

For those of you who think of MI based on the Tom Cruise movies, this is entirely different (and much, much better). The television series is NOT comprised of a bunch of "flash/bang" scenes slapped together in a two-hour film clip designed to make a buck. The TV series was an intelligent attempt (which succeeded for the most part) in portraying a highly specialized and trained group of individuals working for a top secret government department who got missions which were otherwise; well, impossible. They would accomplish this through a meticulous and clever plan, which in most instances involved conning the enemy involved. There were few car chases or gun battles in these episodes (unless the MI force planned them in advance), yet each installment was captivating as we would watch the plot unwind and the bad guy get his just dues.

Yes, we know that by the end of the hour the IM force is going to be successful in its mission each time - but what is so fascinating is how they do it (we are privy to only part of the plan each time at the beginning of the show). The plots often have more twists than a pretzel and are believable (with a couple of exceptions).

Very few of the installments were "losers", which made the TV series well above average overall. The program lasted for seven seasons and outlasted all of the other "spy programs" (such as `The Man from U.N.C.L.E', `I Spy', `Get Smart', etc) during the 1960's spy program craze.

After geting season one, I could not wait for the release of season 2. The first season dvd were better than expected with great transfers of both picture and sound. The stories, of course were even better than I remembered. This is Mission Impossible, not the movies of recent times. These episodes are based on outwitting, fooling or even conning the opposition not outmuscling them. These agents use planning and stealth to achieve the mission. Of course, something will go wrong calling for improvisation and adaptation. This season marks the appearance of Peter Graves as Jim Phelps. He has a warmer screen personna than Steven Hill of the first season. These shows hold their own even after forty years. From the first note of the opening theme, you will be hooked. Action, humor and suspense delivered with great acting and writing. Do not let this set self destruct. Do not disavow this series. It is an all time classic.

This underappreciated series focused on the fooling, outsmarting, & even conning the opposition to beat them. Often using great gadgets & disguises, Barney Collier{Greg Morris} was the best part of the show to me. Not surprisingly, something will go wrong calling for fast adapting & improvisation for the members of the impossible missions force.

This season, the warmer Peter Graves as Jim Phelps replaced the detached Steven Hills as the leader of the IMF. This seasons episodes had more diverse plots than season one. For me discs 3-4, episodes 9-16 were the best. Examples: In 9 "The Seal," has a trained cat recover an ancient jade seal to return it to its rightful country. The two part "The Council," was very well done with even more intruiging disguises than usual. Rollin{played by the superb Martin Landau} impersonates a mob boss using a face supplied by Cinnamon{Landau's real life wife Barbara Bain}. In 14 "The Echo Of Yesterday," was a finely detailed story. Cinnamon & the whole IMF team goes to great lengths to stop a munitions magnate who is giving arms to Neo-Nazi's. Guest star Hans Gudagast{Eric Braden} of Rat Patrol & Young & The Restless fame was very good as the unstable Nazi leader. This may have been the most imaginative episode of the season? The only slight minus was the overdone makeup Barbara Bain wore. Both the series & the opening theme deserves ten stars.

Mission Impossible - The Second TV Season begins where most of our memories remain of the show. The first season featured Steven Hill, best known for being the NY DA in Law and Order, as the head of the Impossible Missions Force. But Hill left the hit show and was succeeded by Peter Graves as Jim Phelps, the leader most of us grew up watching.

The show continued with its great guest stars, sometimes complicated plots, and skillful use of the "con the bad guys" approach that was the hallmark of the series. Graves came in and fit seamlessly at the same time his brother James Arness was continuing his long run as Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke.

This show will always be treasured for its pioneering plot devices and its challenge to the viewer to keep up with what was going on. It's great that this series is finally on DVD.

When the first season was released last year it was more of a blind buy for me than anything, based on fuzzy childhood memories and a well-known theme song. But I had so much fun with the set that I immediately grabbed the second season when it came out.

Season 2 introduces Peter Graves as Jim Phelps, and with his arrival we have what is arguably the show's best-known roster. Objectively I'm torn between Graves and Steven Hill, the first season leader; Graves has a warmer appeal, and he stayed with the show longer, but Hill had more of a special-ops toughness to him. Also debuting as a full cast member is Martin Landau, after spending season 1 under guest billing. Landau always steals the show, and his extensive prosthetics are the coolest element of any episode as well as what takes the most suspension of disbelief.

Speaking of which, there's a tad more of that going on this season. Maybe it's a side-effect of watching so many episodes back-to-back, but you start to question how far ahead the IMF plan to manipulate the bad guy into a certain room, or have them pull a gun at that right moment. Some traps seem overly elaborate for a relatively mild objective, but that's half the fun. The budget this season also seems a little higher; there's less obvious set-redressing like that large room from season 1 that doubled as a lobby/casino/police station/prison/etc.

So 7-discs in nice slim cases covering 25 remastered episodes, which look and sound great. The glaring lack of subtitles from the season 1 set has been fixed. A great value for any spy genre fan, and a great series for those who like classic television.

Briggs Vs. Phelps?
Like you, I'd never seen the Steven Hill "Dan Briggs" episodes until receiving the season one DVDs. Neither had my husband, and we both agree that Hill is the superior actor (sorry, Peter Graves! Still love ya in The Beginning of the End!) and Briggs is a more interesting and dynamic... Read More
