8/10 ... and I always though Landau's character was named Rollin HAND. Wow. Consider me 'edumacated' on that one.

Thank you Lucy and Desi for making this show (along with Mannix and Star Trek) a possibility.
BorisK TonyClifton 7 months ago
Desi has a great story about Cesar Romero you should ask him ...

As I once told my mother in the kitchenware department of Smart & Final, while I held the item in question up before her: ¡Yo tengo una cuchara roja grande!"

I’ve never seen a goat with a bigger beard than my Uncle Ray’s. He might as well call it a sheep with a mohawk.

Your Uncle Ray has a beard?

I love Mission: Impossible!! I thought Lesley Ann Warren was too young to be a part of their team, but I still enjoy her episodes. Love the Cinnamon years the best. Rollin is my favorite:)

8/10. Good show, always liked it. Had a crush on Lesley Ann Warren, I was 11.
daDoctah Bapa1 7 months ago
I had a crush on her from back when she played Cinderella. And later in the Disney movie about the pioneer family who played campaign rallies for both parties in 1888.

Hah! Couldn't post the original version because apparently a word that appears seven times in amendments to the US Constitution, three of them in the 17th amendment, is not family-friendly language.

Freedom?

Nope. What do you call it when people vote? The name for the process of voting, I mean.

7/10. I didn't care for this show much as a kid (my dad loved it) but I got to appreciate it later. My favorite character was strongman Willie, played by Peter Lupus.

"And should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim".....sssssssss(tape disintegrating)sssssss!!!

I watched this as a kid and had no idea what the second paragraph meant. I only knew it was serious
Coldnorth frenchman71 7 months ago
The secretary will disavow. Etc. what the he double hockey sticks did that mean. Lol

In other words, if you or your colleagues are caught trying to blow up a munitions plant and they find out who your taking orders from, you and your colleagues don't exist. The agency you work for never heard of you. Like a CIA black bag job or a special ops mission.

I believe that Steven Hill left because of religious reasons.
Jeremy CoreyC 7 months ago
Yeah, he was an Orthodox Jew and he couldn't work past a certain time which the work schedule couldn't accommodate.
Coldnorth Jeremy 7 months ago
I didn’t like him as much as Jim phelps
CaptainDunsel Coldnorth 7 months ago
I think he was much better as the District Attorney on "Law & Order"
BorisK CoreyC 7 months ago
Glad he left (Graves was perfect) and barely remember him, until he got on Law & Order and thought it was his show.

I got 2/10. I got #1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 10 wrong. I never saw impossible, that is something that should be put on earlier in the evening.
