@joanna@mlv@larand you should watch Ghost Protocol. It's very good, some outstanding set pieces, and a truly wild caper. III was OK, but not really M:I. II was a mess, but the scene where they sicken an executive and send him a "ghost" was classic.
@joanna@mlv@larand what annoyed me most was that the first movie captured the feel of the series better than any the rest except possibly Ghost Protocol, but doing that to Phelps was unforgivable on the writers' parts.
TIL 1: it takes a team of five up to four hours of snail rubbing to collect five gallons of snail slime mucus. TIL 2: you can rub snails. TIL 3: people put it on their faces willingly, or get actual snails to do it.
@hazardwarning it was a good role for him, especially because it was post-Star Trek and he was worried he'd been badly typecast. He commented once he'd had better ratings and better pay on M:I than ever on the Enterprise, but no one remembers it.
However, with the possible exceptions of @mlv and @larand, I think I'm the only one here who not only saw him in the original Mission: Impossible cast, but also enjoyed his role as Paris the impersonator.
