Jim Phelps is the head of a super-secret government agency ("Impossible Mission Force"), and is often given secret anonymous covert missions to attempt; quite often they are unmasking of criminals or rescuing of 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. An update of the classic 1966 series, featuring a great deal of high-tech gadgetry. Written by

The original Star Trek and the original Mission: Impossible were both filmed at Desilu studios. As a result, many character actors were seen on both shows in memorable ways. There is an interesting continuation of this in the second MI series and in Star Trek: The Next Generation. John de Lancie plays the unpredictable main antagonist in both pilot episodes. See more »

i used to watch this when i was a kid and believe me its just too awesome. Its classy and its just too smart. Always waited for the episodes. The acting is just excellent and i have watched a few of the old original ones and that's great too. But this series is just too excitable and fascinating. If anyone would like to spend their weekend watching an old series of spy movies or series then THIS IS THE ONE.
Am sorry i just loved this and another series called bounty hunters. But IMDb doesn't have that series here which is very surprising.
Just feel sad that they lamed such a great series into a lame movie where stunts are just really impossible. But if you watch this series they will make you understand whats the real meaning of *Mission Impossible* where its possible but kinda impossible. Watch it then you would know what am talking about.
