Product Description

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"!


With its combination of Cold War villains and James Bond-like techno-gadgets, Mission: Impossible was an instant hit when it premiered on September 17, 1966. Airing Saturday nights at 9:00 on CBS, the series was the brainchild of creator/producer Bruce Geller, whose formula for seven successful seasons included a well-chosen ensemble cast, noteworthy guest stars, and a flexible premise that inspired clever plots twists and a constant variety of "international" locations (mostly filmed on a studio backlot). This seven-disc set includes all 28 episodes of season 1, the only season to feature Steven Hill as Dan Briggs, leader of the top-secret counterintelligence team known as Impossible Missions Force (IMF). As the no-nonsense Briggs, Hill (better known for his later role on Law & Order from 1990 to 2000) began each episode by sneakily retrieving the dossier and recorded instructions (voiced throughout the entire series by uncredited actor Bob Johnson) for the IMF's latest assignment. "Your mission, should you decide to accept it" and "this recording will self-destruct in five seconds" quickly became pop-cultural catch-phrases, as Briggs routinely selected his preferred teammates based on their mastery of practical skills. With "special appearance" billing for M:I's first three seasons, Martin Landau played master-of-disguise Rollin Hand; his off-screen wife, Barbara Bain, played top-model and undercover seductress Cinnamon Carter; Greg Morris brought hip coolness (and racial diversity) to his role as electronics expert Barney Collier; and Peter Lupus played handsome hunk Willy Armitage, adding IMF muscle to Briggs' brainy strategies.

As a Desilu production based at Paramount Studios, Mission: Impossible shared guest stars, production personnel, locations, and even occasional sets with the original Star Trek. Fans of both shows will enjoy spotting these crossover details (including George Takei's appearance in "The Carriers," a first-season highlight), and this season's other stand-out episodes include the "Pilot" (featuring Wally Cox as an ace safe-cracker), "Operation Rogosh," "A Spool There Was," "Action!," "The Train," and "The Traitor." Whether they were toppling dictators, rescuing doomed prisoners, foiling despots, or framing Mafia kingpins, the IMF agents were consistently blessed with taut, well-written plots, many unfolding with minimal dialogue and highly visual schemes that demanded (and rewarded) the viewer's close attention. Although Steven Hill eventually left the series (as an Orthodox Jew, he preferred not to work on the Jewish Sabbath, as M:I required), his single season set the stage for M:I's long-term popularity, with Peter Graves (replacing Hill as "Jim Phelps") leading the IMF from 1967 to 1973. And while Paramount has again neglected to offer DVD extras with this set, the episodes look and sound just about perfect, with a parade of guest stars including Carol O'Connor, Simon Oakland, Fritz Weaver, Nehemiah Persoff, Barbara Luna, Vic Tayback, and a host of other '60s TV regulars. Your mission--and you shouldn't hesitate to accept it--is to enjoy this classic series all over again! --Jeff Shannon

Format: DVD
This series is the best in it's genre. Season 2 and 3 are the best of the entire 7 seasons. Still all 7 seasons are a must have for any fans out there. While others tried to match the concept in series like Alias and Hustle, this concept has never been replaced by anything close in it's genre.

A definite must have.

CONS: Paramount. Why do you release a zone 2 in Europe and zone 4 in Australia with French and Spanish language track and produce a Zone 1 Ameria with only English??? This is VERY disapointing. It surely would not have cost you more to put all language tracks on the Zone 1 release. It would have saved a lot of us the trouble of buying the Zone 2 or 4 thru the internet. In a world where we promote communication this is non sence.

Paramount Studios have done it again, a full season set and not divided into seperate volumes. I have nothing but high praise for Paramount Studios for their release of "Mission Impossible" season one on DVD. They also recently released the "Wild Wild West" on DVD and I figured nothing could top the quality of that set. I was wrong, the video and audio quality of "Mission Impossible" season one is absolutely stunning. All 28 season one episodes presented in color with amazing remastered video and 5.1 Dolby Digital sound are included for you're viewing pleasure. The 28 episodes are spread out over 7 single sided discs with great packaging & artwork. How is it that Paramount Studios can deliver such quality at an affordable price? maybe they really do care about the fans. You won't find any bonus extra's included but the quality of the episodes is what really matters and they're spectacular. This set absolutely rocks....bring on season two.

Pilot Episode
Operation Rogosh

I enjoyed watching them when I was younger and I enjoy them just as much now. This series is better than a lot of the shows on TV now! The remastered video is excellent and 5.1 digital sound is very well done.

Recommend this for those who remember the series when it first was on TV. This generation would find it too slow moving. Great acting by the "team", and story lines do stand up even today.
