What a great package!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mission: Impossible - The Complete Series (DVD)
Well.... I waited to have ALL the seasons put together and here they are! This is the ultimate TREAT. Should I really stress how Mission Impossible was an amazing series?! No surprise here: each box / season is pure quality, whether we are talking about the content (the shows) or the packaging. You have here hours and hours of amazing entertainment! It was a little bit expensive to get them all in this package but I really, really don't regret it for a second. This is a MUST have and I love it. I need to make this review short as a new Mission is waiting for me!

"Complete"? Where's seasons 8 and 9, that ABC ran? With Barney's son? And one had Casey returning. And there was a 2-parter where Barney came back and died. Where's the "DIAGNOSIS: MURDER" segment with Barbara Bain back as Cinamon Carter? Where's that old "SANDY DUNCAN" episode with Graves? Yes, what is here is indeed great, but why is SO MUCH missing?

That is NOT Season 8 and 9. There is NO Season 8 and 9. Those 2 seasons were made 15 years after the original series ended. That series is considered a separate remake. The episodes you make with Casey and Barney returning were in THAT series, not the original which is being offered here. You don't see the Dark Shadows revival sold with the Classic series so why would you with Mission Impossible? The "Diagnosis Murder" story you mention is probably in one of THOSE sets because Paramount saw no need to offer crossovers, especially since Barbara Bain did that after THIS series was history. You need to learn to distinguish between a classic series and a revival. They are seldom ever released on DVD together.

If you zoom in on the package it say's it includes the '88-'89 season.

Beg to differ - that is a lousy package. A toss-up between which is worse, MI or The Shield. Great show, but I would rather have the superior packaging of the individual seasons.

the problem is Amazon puts all the reviews together for different products, so people might read the review for one set and think they're ordering it. There's two different Mission Impossible "complete" collections. One is the 46 disc, 7 seasons stacked together "value pack" released in 2009. The other is the 56 disc released in 2012 in the dynamite package which the text says includes the 1980s MI series and a bonus disc.

My bad. My comment referred to the silly dynamite stick. I see the reviewer was referring to a more traditional packaging.
If they wanted a custom package the made sense, a briefcase with folders of each team member (hold the discs in slide like West Wing) would have been a lot cooler. Just like what Briggs/Phelps used for team selection.

S Mcdonald, not to embarrass you but if you look you will see the original poster's comment was in 2009 and my reply in 2010 BEFORE the mega set that now includes them all was released when you wrote your comment in 2012. As I said then and it is still true. A classic series and its revival are RARELY released together. Since Paramount was responsible for both, they have released the newer set in 2012 since the original review and comments were made (which was NOT for a mega set but the 7 season sets of Classic wrapped together).
