Movie Reviews

Your mission is to accept this dvd
Daniel Lee Taylor | GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas United States | 03/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After geting season one, I could not wait for the release of season 2. The first season dvd were better than expected with great transfers of both picture and sound. The stories, of course were even better than I remembered. This is Mission Impossible, not the movies of recent times. These episodes are based on outwitting, fooling or even conning the opposition not outmuscling them. These agents use planning and stealth to achieve the mission. Of course, something will go wrong calling for improvisation and adaptation. This season marks the appearance of Peter Graves as Jim Phelps. He has a warmer screen personna than Steven Hill of the first season. These shows hold their own even after forty years. From the first note of the opening theme, you will be hooked. Action, humor and suspense delivered with great acting and writing. Do not let this set self destruct. Do not disavow this series. It is an all time classic."
Much Anticipated and Finally Available
Paul J. Moade | Jacksonville, FL United States | 04/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At last, the much anticipated second season of Mission Impossible. This is where Peter Graves takes over from Stephen Hill as Jim Phelps. Although Mr. Hill did a fine job, I would venture to say that most of us who remember the series place Mr. Graves as the head of the MI force.

For those of you who think of MI based on the Tom Cruise movies, this is entirely different (and much, much better). The television series is NOT comprised of a bunch of "flash/bang" scenes slapped together in a two-hour film clip designed to make a buck. The TV series was an intelligent attempt (which succeeded for the most part) in portraying a highly specialized and trained group of individuals working for a top secret government department who got missions which were otherwise; well, impossible. They would accomplish this through a meticulous and clever plan, which in most instances involved conning the enemy involved. There were few car chases or gun battles in these episodes (unless the MI force planned them in advance), yet each installment was captivating as we would watch the plot unwind and the bad guy get his just dues.

Yes, we know that by the end of the hour the IM force is going to be successful in its mission each time - but what is so fascinating is how they do it (we are privy to only part of the plan each time at the beginning of the show). The plots often have more twists than a pretzel and are believable (with a couple of exceptions).

Very few of the installments were "losers", which made the TV series well above average overall. The program lasted for seven seasons and outlasted all of the other "spy programs" (such as `The Man from U.N.C.L.E', `I Spy', `Get Smart', etc) during the 1960's spy program craze.

If you haven't yet seen the original television program, do yourself a great favor and try one of the two sets soon available (Season One is available right now). Sit back in your favorite chair with your friends or family and prepare to be delighted. I'll bet you'll find the episodes are like Lays Potato Chips - can't watch just one.

Highly Recommended

Stealth=Brains Over Brawn.
Steve Guardala | ????? | 12/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This underappreciated series focused on the fooling, outsmarting, & even conning the opposition to beat them. Often using great gadgets & disguises, Barney Collier{Greg Morris} was the best part of the show to me. Not surprisingly, something will go wrong calling for fast adapting & improvisation for the members of the impossible missions force.

This season, the warmer Peter Graves as Jim Phelps replaced the detached Steven Hills as the leader of the IMF. This seasons episodes had more diverse plots than season one. For me discs 3-4, episodes 9-16 were the best. Examples: In 9 "The Seal," has a trained cat recover an ancient jade seal to return it to its rightful country. The two part "The Council," was very well done with even more intruiging disguises than usual. Rollin{played by the superb Martin Landau} impersonates a mob boss using a face supplied by Cinnamon{Landau's real life wife Barbara Bain}. In 14 "The Echo Of Yesterday," was a finely detailed story. Cinnamon & the whole IMF team goes to great lengths to stop a munitions magnate who is giving arms to Neo-Nazi's. Guest star Hans Gudagast{Eric Braden} of Rat Patrol & Young & The Restless fame was very good as the unstable Nazi leader. This may have been the most imaginative episode of the season? The only slight minus was the overdone makeup Barbara Bain wore. Both the series & the opening theme deserves ten stars."
A Classic Second Season
Terence Allen | Atlanta, GA USA | 04/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mission Impossible - The Second TV Season begins where most of our memories remain of the show. The first season featured Steven Hill, best known for being the NY DA in Law and Order, as the head of the Impossible Missions Force. But Hill left the hit show and was succeeded by Peter Graves as Jim Phelps, the leader most of us grew up watching.

The show continued with its great guest stars, sometimes complicated plots, and skillful use of the "con the bad guys" approach that was the hallmark of the series. Graves came in and fit seamlessly at the same time his brother James Arness was continuing his long run as Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke.

This show will always be treasured for its pioneering plot devices and its challenge to the viewer to keep up with what was going on. It's great that this series is finally on DVD."
