I recently finished binging the entire series again myself, and I agree with most of your conclusions (including Jar Jar Abrams ruining franchises, but unironically; I can't forgive him for Star Wars :P). I suppose I have to agree that MI1 is pretty significantly better than MI2, even though I tend to prefer more action-heavy movies (I once heard that it was a directorial decision to have as few guns fired in MI1 as possible - there's only like 1 gunshot in the whole movie!), and I still don't like that all but one member of both of Ethan's teams survives and doesn't turn traitor. They even named Jon Voight's character after the main protagonist of the original television series and made him turn traitor! That's kind of a low blow to fans of the TV show who might have watched it...

 

Then again, I have to question the taste of any fans of the TV show. Ever watched it, Ocelot? There's a local TV channel where I live that only shows really old shows for old people to watch (you can tell the target audience by the commercials, which are all of the "help I've fallen and I can't get up!" variety). They show Mission Impossible on there sometimes, and IT IS TERRIBLE. I've tried watching a few episodes, usually when they have Leonard Nimoy or someone in them, but MY GOD. It is, hands down, the most boring television program you will ever see. One time I even tried to sit through a three-part episode, waiting for something - anything - interesting to happen, and I've never felt time slow to such a crawl before or since.

 

So basically what I'm saying is don't watch the TV show. There's a reason the only thing anyone remembers about it is the theme music.

That's great! :lol:

 

I'm a couple of days late with this one, but I didn't want to wait until next week. Enjoy!
