DVD Review: MISSION : IMPOSSIBLE – Season 6

CBS/ParamountHome Entertainment
Release date: April 28, 2009
MSRP: $49.99

Stars: Peter Graves, Greg Morris, Peter Lupus, Lynda Day George, Valentin de Vargas

Another long standing favorite from TV which is well appreciated on DVD is Mission Impossible and this 6th season sees a few minor cast changes again. Introduced this season is Lynda Day George as Lisa Casey. Sam Elliot is also in a number of episodes as are a lot of great television actors. Look for an episode called Encore with a small role by William Shatner and Billy Dee Williams in The Miracle. It’s also nice to see Greg Morris and Peter Lupus have a larger part to play instead of just the heavy lifting guy and the gadget guy.

The appeal of this show is obvious, it was big budget, action packed and filled with adventures most people can only dream of. In the height of the Bond popularity this show was a can’t miss. And while some of the things they did don’t hold up well just because of the passing of time, the fun overload is undeniable. There are far worse ways to pass the time, and compared to most new television, this series is GOLD.

Order season six of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE.
