"Mission Impossible -- Ghost Protocol"
Tom Cruise returns in the fourth film in this high-energy, effects-laden action series. Cruise stars as IMF agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise), who breaks out of a Russian prison to deal with a problem that involves world security. His new team consists of a beautiful agent (Paula Patton) and tech expert (Simon Pegg), and their mission is to infiltrate the Kremlin and find an agent named Cobalt who has in his possession Soviet nuclear launch codes that could start a war between the superpowers.
Their first encounter with Cobalt does not go well, and the team is disbanded. They operate for the most part on their own, adding company man (Jeremy Renner) to assist them in their mission. Scene after scene, you will find yourself trying to catch your breath from all the excitement and nonstop action.

Available on DVD for the first time, this excellent family drama ran on ABC from 1977-1981. The show featured Dick Van Patten as head of the Bradford family. His wife (Diana Hyland) and their eight children all had their own stories.

All nine episodes, along with the pilot featuring Mark Hamill, are included in this two-disc set.
