| Film Synopsis |
The show that inspired a global franchise, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: THE ORIGINAL TV SERIES follows elite covert operations unit I.M.F. as they carry out only the most hazardous of espionage missions. Each an expert in their own field, the group of extraordinary spies was first led by Daniel Briggs (Steven Hill) and later overseen by Jim Phelps (Graves). Each episode featured the now-famous tape-recorded message outlining the latest task for the group to tackle. Popular during the Cold War, the group’s missions centered on toppling evil dictators, shutting down corrupt organizations and exploiting crime lords. The I.M.F. crew includes disguise expert Rollin Hand (Martin Landau), charmer Cinnamon Carter (Barbara Bain), electronics technician Barney Collier (Greg Morris), strong man Willy Armitage (Peter Lupus) and, in later episodes, disguise-master Paris (Leonard Nimoy). Sam Elliot and Lesley Ann Warren also star.

"Mission: Impossible: The Original TV Series" comes to Blu-ray for the first time with a cinematic looking transfer. Colors are bright and bold and pop off the screen. Black levels are deep and dense but sometimes are a little too dark. Skin tones are natural and are very detailed. Light grain manifested through the shows.

"Mission: Impossible: The Original TV Series" has been given an excellent DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix compared to the old DVD Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes. Vocals are clear and crisp.

| Overall Reaction |
"Mission: Impossible The Original TV Series" comes with an incredible Blu-ray release with a massive 7-season, 46-disc, 171-episode box set from Paramount/CBS. Paramount brings the best looking version of the series with this release. It has never looked or sounded any better. The only lack off from the box set is not having any bonus features. But overall I Highly Recommended this Blu-ray box set.
