This classic show follows the exploits of the Impossible Missions Force (IMF); a small team of secret agents used for covert missions against dictators, evil organisations, and (primarily in later episodes) crime lords. On occasion, the IMF also mounts unsanctioned private missions on behalf of its members.
In Season 2, the IMF team pose as circus performers to rescue a priest who can bring down a Baltic defence minister and recover a hidden relic which contains state secrets. In another episode, the IMF must stop evil miners from using the beliefs of a Pacific cargo cult to extract gold in a manner that is killing the islanders.
Mission: Impossible weekdays at 11pm on CBS Action.
