Yes, for those of you don't know, the original Mission Impossible was a TV series that ran from the 60's through the 70's. The premise was simply about a group of secret agents that would go on daring, high-risk missions that involved a lot of careful calculation and planning. Sounds standard, but the key element that makes the show interesting is the fact that these use acts of subterfuge, disguise, wit, cunning, and resourcefulness than simply punching people. Each episode is unique and has a lot of interesting characters, so I highly recommend watching a few episodes. To those of you on Netflix, all 11 (yes 11) seasons are available for instant streaming.

I know this seems a bit brief, but I really don't want to give too much away, and I think you should judge for yourself.

This doesn't have anything on Get Smart.

But yeah, I agree. Sometimes these old shows can't be beaten.

lol, ahh yes, I too love the brit-coms. My favorites are probably Waiting for God, As Time Goes By, Vicar of Dibley, and Last of the Summer Wine.

The show definitely kicks the crap out of the Tom Cruise movies! :)

Filmed not far from me :) If you liked those older shows then you should watch Only Fools and Horses, Porridge, open all hours, one foot in the grave and especially Black Adder.

I used to love MI when I was a kid along with ThunderBirds and Star Trek.

What about "Land Of The Giants", "Lost in Space" and "Quantum Leap"? Or is that just me? :D

Quantum Leap was brilliant as was the other 2 shows you mentioned. In reality though land of the giants and even lost in space were no match for the mighty Dr Who (upto and including Peter Davidson) I to this day remember watching Tom Bakers Doctor regenerate and thinking it will never be the same but Peter did a great job.
