I apologize if its been posted elsewhere but I just read that MI - the series from 1988 is being released in November!!! I liked this show just as much as the original!!! It had Jim Phelps (the real thing, not that phony movie Jim Phelps) and other ties to to the original series!!! Glad to get this in time for the holidays!!

I got the news as well. Never saw the 80s version, but plan to get it as I really liked Jim Phelps.

Great news!  If you liked the original and Peter Graves in that role, you'll like this release.

I always thought this had a 50-50 shot of being released, and am happy that they're going ahead with it.  I'd be a little more comfortable about it had this been an entire series release as I didn't get to see many of the second season shows.  As I recall it was on at a time when another favorite show aired (maybe two!) and taping the episodes was a messy proposition.


I liked the technological updates in this show with digital delivery of the Secretary's messages, was happy that they kept the theme and updated it nicely, and that Peter Graves was again leading the team.

A fugitive moves on, through anguished tunnels of time, down dim streets, into dark corners. And each new day offers fear and frustration, tastes of honey and hemlock. But if there is a hazard, there is also hope. - Closing narration to THE FUGITIVE, "Death Is The Door Prize".

I will be picking up both these seasons! M:I (the tv series, not those sucky Cruise movies) has long been a favorite. I really enjoyed this revival when it first aired and am looking forward to putting it up on the shelf alongside my sets of the original series!!
