One of the great all-time Cold War spy drama-action TV shows arrives in the 56-disc set Mission: Impossible: The Complete Television Collection.

We ain’t talking about the Tom Cruise Mission: Impossible movies starring Tom Cruise (like last year’s Ghost Protocol), which are quite fine in their own right, but rather the original one. Or, as purists might put it, the real one!

The original series minus the revival was previously issued on DVD back in 2009 and is still available.

The original action drama Mission: Impossible follows the adventures of the skilled I.M.F. (Impossible Missions Force) team who carry out highly dangerous and mysterious tasks for the government.
