The Mission: Impossible

http://urllio.com/qyzjw






















The Impossible Missions Force is an elite group of agents chosen for their various abilities to infiltrate foreign governments as well as criminal organizations that are seen as threats to the security of the nation. Originally, they were lead by Dan Briggs, but he was replaced by Jim Phelps after one year. Among its members are electronics executive Barney Collier, actor and master of disguise Rollin Hand, model Cinnamon Carter and strongman Willy Armitage. In later years, Rollin leaves the team and is replaced by another master of disguise simply known as Paris, and Cinnamon is replaced first by young Dana Lambert and then Lisa Casey.
Jim Phelps is the head of a super-secret government agency, the IMF (Impossible Missions Force), and is often given secret anonymous covert missions to attempt. Quite often, they are unmasking criminals or rescuing hostages. He picks his team depending on which tasks need to be done. One thing is vital on an Impossible Mission: the mission must be carried out in entire secrecy, often relying on high-tech equipment and elaborate deceptions.
To all the &quot;younguns&quot; out there, please take note: this show has NOTHING to do with the Tom Cruise movies! This was a thinking man&#39;s show--complete with intricate plots, action and decent acting. The movies, in contrast, are designed for dumb people--people who don&#39;t care that the action and stunts make no sense or don&#39;t fit into the general plot. And, people who don&#39;t mind that the hero from the TV series is now the villain! Avoid the movies like the plague and seek out the series! They are on video but have not been shown on TV for quite a long time. Perhaps Paramount Studios is keeping them under wraps, as they would show up the recent crap they have packaged as &quot;Mission: Impossible&quot;.<br/><br/>Now on to the show. The quality of the programs is not uniform. Early on, the baddies were mostly communist nations with funny made up names- -and the episodes were amazing. Later, however, the network pushed the folks at Paramount to make shows that were less anti-Soviet and instead they began making episodes involving criminals...which usually were poor compared to the older ones. Still, a poor &quot;Mission: Impossible&quot; is still enjoyable!
Growing up in the magic era of the sixties, who can not look back at television and the music of that time. Now in the next century Hollywood is using so many aspects of the sixties. Its music and television. Mission Impossible has been redone at least twice in the movies. Yes, the budget is much higher but the fun of &quot;Barney, Willy, Mr Briggs or Phelps, Cinnamon or of Rollin cannot be ever recreated. I can still see little Wally Cox being put in a suitcase and the husky Willy carrying him. Or another master of faces, Ventlos replacing Rollin in a Bunker and how exciting the escape of the team in rescuing the Rojaks as the Bunker exploded.<br/><br/>The love of the team for each other when one of them were captured and an all out rescue would occur. Or the surprise and joy of the team when Willy was not killed but captured. This show was ahead of its time. Along with Mannix and Hawaii Five-O these three shows made the sixties something special.
