There're substantial changes: find a small crew of four IMF agents, a new and real "glamorous" leading lady named Lisa Casey (played by Lynda Day George) who also replaces the master of disguises Paris, the departure of Dr. Doug Robert (which appears once in "Encore") and character Barney who becomes a major asset for the plots and displays his acting knacks, especially in "Mindbend" as a brainwashed fugitive, "Blues" as a junky soul music performer in which he sings twice: "Judy's Gone Now" and Otis Redding's "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay", "Image" as a Tarot dealer and he plays twice a master of disguises (actually, his new talent was first shown in the season 5 "The Hostage"): in "Underwater replacing a gangster's henchman and in "Bag Woman" replacing a gangster's right-hand man. A brand new director popsup named Leslie H. Martinson who achieves the masterpiece "Invasion" and will blossom next season.
Above all, this is a showcase for actress Lynda Day George who not only act--her best efforts are highlit in "The Bride" and in "Committed"--but performs a song ("The Gentle Rain") in "Trapped" and we witness her husband Christopher George in "Nerves".Read more ›
Although this classic series is always interesting, and way better than the movies, for anyone who loves the series and doesn't have any of the DVDs, I would recommend seasons 2 through 5 (Season 1 is good, but the series became much better with the arrival of Peter Graves, playing the team leader Jim Phelps, at the beginning of Season 2) over this rather tired effort.
The first problem was due to "political correctness" of the period which was the early 1970's. At that time, US involvement in the War in Vietnam made many people feel the United States shouldn't "interfere" in other countries' affairs and the producers of the show decided to respond to this by ending the show's emphasis on international intrigue which was the staple of the shows's first four seaons and which was still visible in season 5, although less so. It was decided to switch to having the Impossible Missions Force concentrate on the fight against "the syndicate" (it was politically incorrect also to use the word "Mafia" at the time) in ways the "conventional law enforcement agencies" couldn't utilize, as the voice on the opening taped message would point out. Of course, the Watergate scandal a few short years later would make these types of activities which infringed on the constitutional rights of the subjects of the IMF's activities also "politically incorrect" as well, but the show had been cancelled by that time.
As a result, the large majority of episodes became endless repeats of the theme of taking two partners in an organized criminal enterprise and turning them against one another.Read more ›
