What's Happening

This is discussion archived from a time before the current discussion method was installed.

Looney Toons: Just because it happens to be in my quote file:

Q: How many members of the Impossible Mission Force does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: Five. While Cinnamon creates a diversion by wearing a skimpy dress, I use a tiny narcotic dart to knock out the fascist dictator and remove his body. Rollin, wearing a plastic mask, masquerades as the dictator long enough for Barney to sneak up to the next floor, drill a hole down into the light fixture, remove the burned-out bulb, and replace it with a new super-high wattage model of his own design. Meanwhile, Willie has driven up to the door in a laundry truck. Just before Rollin's real identity is revealed, we escape to the laundry truck, drive to the airfield, and return to the United States.
Mark Lungo: The current pic is okay, but I think it should be changed to one featuring the iconic second and third season cast. Anyone agree?

Lions Phil: It would be better to show Rollin and Cinnamon, yeah. Finding an appropriate image might be hard though, given how the team were rarely all on-screen at once, and things like boxset covers seem to be inexplicably styled with the film's '90s techno-trimmings.

Lions Phil: Also, is there anything tropy about Gellar's fairly unusual anti-character development? MI really stands out all the more these days as a bunch of professionals doing a job well because it doesn't bog itself down with interludes of awkward inter-team drama.
