How the Mission Impossible series has reinvented itself over the years

Updated: Jun 7, 2023

Have you ever watched the TV series Mission Impossible? If not, you're missing out on one of the best spy series of all time. The series was created by Bruce Geller and premiered in 1966, lasting until 1973. It tells the adventures of a team of secret agents working for an organization called IMF (Impossible Missions Force), which performs risky and dangerous missions around the world.

The series is famous for its iconic opening, which features a tape recorder with a message that self-destructs after giving mission instructions. The message always starts with "Good afternoon, Mr. Phelps" (or "Miss Phelps" in the case of a female agent), and ends with "Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is...". The theme song of the series, composed by Lalo Schifrin, is also very well known and remarkable.

The team of agents is led by Dan Briggs in the first season, and by Jim Phelps in the others. The other members of the team vary throughout the series, but some of the most famous are Barney Collier, an electronics specialist; Cinnamon Carter, model and actress; Willy Armitage, brute strength; and Rollin Hand, master of disguise. The series stands out for its creativity and intelligence in the scripts, which show how the team uses tricks, ingenuity and technology to accomplish their missions without resorting to violence.

The TV series Mission Impossible was a great success with the public and critics, winning several awards and being nominated for many others. It also spawned a movie franchise starring Tom Cruise that began in 1996 and continues today. If you like action, suspense and espionage, be sure to check out this classic series that made television history.
