Your mission should you chose to accept it!!,
This review is from: Mission: Impossible - The '89 TV Season (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!

Just for the record, Bruce Geller was the creative force behind Mission: Impossible and Mannix. Sadly he died in a plane crash in May 1978. He was only 47. His name will remain on anything to do with those series, as creator and sometimes, writer if they recycle any of his original scripts.

I just saw an episode I' taped back in the day and I must say that I really enjoyed it. Nicholas Hammond (The Original Spiderman) and Cesare Danova guest starred. It's my favorite episode from the series.
Mr. Walker, I too don't understand the complaints people have over the video. The video I had was great and I dubbed it without cable. Too, it was one of those shows that were close captioned and broadcast in stereo! The sound was more than up to par. I don't know why people are complaining. I plan to buy this series and the original when I get the cash.
