Recently I picked up Season 2 of this series and I've been really enjoying it. I hadn't seen this since reruns in the early '70s. I remember when the first Tom Cruise remake came out. At the time I felt they missed the boat completely. They made the Jim Phelps character a traitor? Then it's a lot of over-the-top action and overdone explosions. I didn't bother with any of the sequels. But I'm loving the revisit with the original series. I really like Rollin Hand and Barney. The original theme is still one of the very best ever composed for television. I love the clever ways the IMF team get the upper hand. Martin Landau is a riot to watch perform. All that said some things have to be acknowledged. It gets easy to spot where money was saved. When cops or drug enforcement bust in on criminals I'm pretty sure there would be more than one or two guys. Rollin Hand shouldn't be able to do a McGyver and make perfect masks within a half hour or so with only the contents of a kitchen or small town doctor's clinic. And sometimes they do things with computers and even lasers that I'm not sure would have been even possible then. It's also quite repetitive the way Phelps is shown choosing his team since he's usually choosing the same people. I like it when an additional unfamiliar face is chosen for an assignment. If done for television today than I think you could get away with a smaller group of core characters and more unfamiliar faces chosen for specific assignments perhaps on something of an irregular basis. It also strikes me that some of their assignments fall out of the purview of espionage and counter-intelligence and were more straight law enforcement matters. But even so I just find myself loving this and grinning like a fool through each episode. I like the episodic format with a complete standalone story. I'm definitely up for ordering Season 3.
