The hit series Mission: Impossible™ returns to DVD, featuring all 23 Season Five episodes! By the fifth season, the show's changing times meant changing crimes, as the emerging drug culture forced the IMF to spend more time in America, battling organized crime and drug czars.
But the winning formula stayed the same: Jim Phelps (Peter Graves) gets his assignment, Barney Collier (Greg Morris) makes the required special effects, and Willy Armitage (Peter Lupus) supplies the muscle. And while Paris (Leonard Nimoy) has the makeup skills to become any character required, it's the team's newest member - the gorgeous Dana Lambert (Lesley Ann Warren) - who gives this season an added boost, and makes this set of Mission: Impossible™ the most thrilling DVD experience yet!
Paramount Home Entertainment has announced the October 7th
release of Mission: Impossible - The 5th Season
on DVD. These 23 missions will run 19 hours, 15 minutes long and includes new regular team member Lesley Ann Warren (who's credited in this show without the "Ann"). You'll also remember Warren from the 1965 production of Cinderella
, as well as her Oscar-nominated role in Victor/Victoria
and her turn as "Miss Scarlet" in the film version of the board game Clue
. She's been most recently seen in Desparate Housewives
as being Susan's mother.
Sam Elliot (Tombstone, The Big Lebowski, The Golden Compass, Ghost Rider
) also appeared as "Lang" (Dr. Doug Robert) during Season 5, trading off appearances with Peter Lupus ("Willy Armitage") in each mission. There are also many guest stars in this season, with folks such as John Colicos, Robert Conrad, Sid Haig, James Hong, Herbert Jefferson Jr., Mark Lenard, Larry Linville, Marion Ross, James B. Sikking, Loretta Swit and John Vernon.
