This was the best spy tv show in my opinion, right up there with Danger Man starring Patrick McGoohan. It's unfortunate that Tom Cruise soiled the very premise of the tv series and chose to transform it into just another cheap series of action flicks. If you want to see the real IMF, go for the original series or the 80's version. That's what a good spy series was all about: intrigue, manipulation, intricate plot, suspense, and teamwork. Not blazing firepower, cheap scenario, and the entire focus on only one actor, like in the films.
