Cast : Peter GravesBarbara BainGreg Morris.

Jim Phelps (Peter Graves)  is the head of a secret government agency that specialized in Impossible missions, and is often given secret anonymous covert missions to attempt. He chooses his team that go under cover with disguise all over the world. The mission is under secrecy.

When I got the U.S in the late 70’s I saw the rerun of this series. I love the beginning when Peter Graves gets the tape recorder and turn it on and you hear “Mr. Briggs, your mission, should you decide to accept it, would be to remove both nuclear devices from Santa Costa. As always, you have carte blanche as to method and  personnel, but of course should you or any member of your IM Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. As usual, this recording will decompose one minute after the breaking of the seal.” Then you have the theme music which is the most recognizable music all over the world. Every episode begins with a hand striking a match and touching it to a fuse. As you see the fuse burn you see a preview of the episode That is the coolest.  you had guest star on this series like you would not believe. I love when Jim Pheps ( Peter Graves) gets his team and tells them the plan of action with explaining every gadget that they are going to use. Great ensemble cast and great writers on this one. I do miss this one it was one of my favorite.
