Mission: Impossible (1988)

Mission: Impossible (1988)

It’s a new Impossible Missions Force (IMF) team, under the leadership of old team leader Jim Phelps. The new team has some new gadgets, and an upgraded theme. But it’s still the same basic show as the original: a team of specialized American agents take on “impossible” espionage missions for the sake of their country, and if caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of them.

Team leader Phelps still gets his briefing on a self-destructing video player (upgraded from the old tape recorder). And the team still has a strong man (Max Harte), a scientific genius (Grant Collier, son of the original team’s Barney Collier), a master of disguise (Nicholas Black), and a femme fatale (Casey Randall, who later died on an assignment and was replaced by Shannon Reed).
