Mission: Impossible, "Recovery" (1968)

In this bonus episode we talk about the old Mission: Impossible TV show, while we watch one of the classic episodes, "Recovery" - the last episode from season 2

The episode was directed by Robert Totten, and written by William Read Woodfield & Allan Balter.

Please note that this is not a hardcore scene-specific track, just a bit of extra fun, so we can talk about some of the stuff we couldn't fit into the main track for Mission: Impossible (1996).

On this track we cover:

- The style and structure
- The creation of the original show
- Favorite moments from the show
- The slow decline of the series
- And much more
