The hit series Mission: Impossible(TM) returns to DVD, featuring all 23 Season Five episodes! By the fifth season, the show's changing times meant changing crimes, as the emerging drug culture forced the IMF to spend more time in America, battling organized crime and drug czars. But the winning formula stayed the same: Jim Phelps (Peter Graves) gets his assignment, Barney Collier (Greg Morris) makes the required special effects, and Willy Armitage (Peter Lupus) supplies the muscle. And while Paris (Leonard Nimoy) has the makeup skills to become any character required, it's the team's newest member -- the gorgeous Dana Lambert (Lesley Ann Warren) -- who gives this season an added boost, and makes this set of Mission: Impossible(TM) the most thrilling DVD experience yet!

This DVD set contains all 23 episodes of the fifth season. Among the highlights: "The Killer", in which the IMF tracks a contract killer played by Robert Conrad and in which Lesley Warren is introduced as new agent Dana Lambert. In "Homecoming", Jim Phelps rallies his team for an off-the-books mission to catch a serial killer in his hometown; the episode provides an intriguing glimpse of the young Phelps. In "My Friend, My Enemy", Paris is kidnapped and transformed into a killing machine whose target is his own boss, Jim Phelps. In "Kitara", the IMF team must liberate a young black freedom fighter by convincing his ruthless captor of his own black heritage. In "The Party", the IMF cleverly "borrows" an entire foreign consulate to fool an enemy spy. Each episode features the exotic plans and race-against-the-clock mission execution that were the show's signature.
The Cold War is almost two decades in our collective wake, and the special effects look less impressive than at first showing, but these Mission: Impossible episodes are still fun to watch. The "Season Five" is very highly recommended to its fans.
As others have previously said, the best episode of this set is "The Killer" guest starring Robert Conrad, a terrific episode.
As usual I continue to be amazed by the CBS/Paramount lack of retrospectives or commentaries on any of the Mission DVD sets. This is one of the few classics of the 1960s with the majority of the cast still alive: how they can continue to release these sets with nothing extra is beyond me.
