Mission: Impossible Classic TV Show
Cult action adventure series in which a team of government agents known as IMF are dispatched to solve the more unusual crimes that place the country in national danger.
Mission: Impossible Fan Tributes6 Andrew Holland from Purley, Surrey, England: This has to be the best spy/ action adventure show of all time! The plots were so clver and intricate, even in its later seasons when the emphasis shifted away from foreign dictatorships to organised crime in the USA. It also boasts one of the best TV theme tunes ever written.
5 Jimmy Keary from Ireland: This is favourite show of all time - especially the first three seasons. I loved the theme music, the fusewire credits, the incidental music, the silent teamwork and the charades and cons. An unbeatable combination! So hard to pick out a favourite episode. Maybe 'The Execution' where a hired assassin (Luke Askew) is made believe he is on death row awaiting execution.
4 lynda Maine from Edinburgh scotland: I liked Mission Impossible. very much. I have not watched the Mission Impossible films. Because the films would not match the series. Long live Mission Impossible. I wish they would put the series back on the television again.
3 katou from quebec,canada: i just love that show! Barbara bain and Martin Landau were fantastic! My favorite is The exchange, when Cinnamon was caught on duty. Also the cabaret episode was great. They dont make shows like this anymore.
2 Ezy Rider from England: I love this show - the scriptwriting was excellent. My favourite was the one where they pretended a nuclear war had broken out by putting panoramic photos of an apocalypse around the periscope of a fallout shelter. And of course Barbara Bain and Martin Landau went onto Space:1999 as well.
1 The Worm from Cambridge UK: What a fantastic soundtrack. Used to love this when I was a kiddie. Can't say Tom Cruise has added anything to the franchise, but the up-dated tune kicks ass.
