TV Shows Mission: Impossible
Elite special agents undertook top-secret assignments in crackerjack episodes, which kicked off with the team leader receiving instructions via a tape-recorded message that self-destructed in five seconds.

When Landau left the series in 1969, his replacement was the man who built a career on Spock, Leonard Nimoy.
