Mannix, the action-packed detective drama about a tough and cynical private investigator stars Golden Globe winner Mike Connors stars as the title character. Mannix is a hard-boiled and gritty detective who constantly defies rules and regulations and is able to take a flurry of fist fights, high-speed car chases and bullet wounds in stride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Season for Mannix! April 22, 2011
Format:DVD
Mannix was always one of my favorite shows back in the day and I'm glad to see that Season 5 will be coming out shortly on DVD. If memory serves correct, it moved from its original Saturday night perch to Wednesday nights and finally broke into the Top 10 in Nielsen ratings for the season. They changed up the music a little, making it more pronounced and upbeat, if that was possible. There were a lot of great episodes, so the writing, directing, acting and action remained high. I think we saw more of Lt. Malcolm that season compared to the other police types that Mannix dealt with. Here's hoping that we get another quick turn to Seasons 6, 7 and 8 (seasons 4 and 5 were six months apart) after this release. Most of season 7 and none of season 8 were part of the syndication package in the U.S. for Mannix, so those episodes haven't been seen for more than 35 years. Let's get them out of the vault and into the hands of Mannix fans! Thanks, CBS/Paramount.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mannix Hits His Stride July 23, 2011
By stripes
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This fifth season run of episodes is simply superb.

What went on before in previous series was already pretty good most of the time, but this season really sees the show hitting its stride.

The plots are intelligent and sometimes interwoven so that there is more than one story involved in an episode, the characters even more developed and the action evenly laid on.

Mike Connors seems to be more at ease reprising the lead role, his secretary, Peggy (played by Gail Fisher) is given more screen time (and this does not always mean getting kidnapped as some other reviewers may allude), while the action is laid on impeccably with smarter than average criminals often giving Mannix a run for the money, pitting their wits against his intellectually as well as through the inevitable fisticuffs.

Setting all this off is the best rendition of the memorable theme by Lalo Schrifin and support music that would do credit to some big screen movies.

While resucing damsels in distress, dodging bullets and getting knocked out, Mannix still finds time to indulge in the finer things in life, seemingly changing from a '71 Cuda to a '72 midway through a case in the first episode on disc five!

If Hollywood ever decides to rejuvenate a past hit and reshoot a modern day edition, Mannix just cries out to be it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show June 16, 2011
By Bruce
Format:DVD
Mannix was always one of the most interesting shows to watch on T.V. Unlike the wannabe private eyes, Jim Rockford, Barnaby Jones, etc., Mannix had a big heart and also guts. Willing to take a risk to right a wrong, Mike Connors breathed life into one of the most formidable characters ever to grace the T.V. screen. Much like Steve McGarrett, Mannix was like a pitbull with justice, and once he sank his teeth into it, would not let go until he finished. Peggy, always managed to keep him walking a straight line, most of the time, and the character development between the two of them, was as great as the story being told that evening.

In season 5 we are treated to a freshened opening, updated vehicles, Peggy loses the Simca finally, and much more thankfully of Ward Wood, Lt. Art Malcom. Having to piggy back on Cannon or Barnaby Jones for most of the season, cudos to the team at Mannix for putting the show in the top ten this season. Proves when an actor like Mike Connors, who was never caught up in the Hollywood whirl and Gail Fisher are allowed to thrive, anything is possible. And the writers gave us some incredible stories that season as well, along with fabulous guest stars all year long. So sad that television today is not anywhere near as entertaining or rewarding as Mannix and the original Hawaii Five-O were. I doubt there is a producer or writer out there that could give us the gut wrenching stories and make you have to watch it to the end, like they did on Mannix. I can'Mannix: Fifth Seasont wait for the release of season 5 and look forward to 6-8 !!!!! Better than anything on t.v. today...and that says something.

Mannix is the American James Bond. In season 1 of Mannix, Mike Connors even looked like Sean Connery did in the early Bond years, and the feel of that first year of Mannix was definitely Bond. Of course, the show was completely re-tooled for season 2 as Mannix's status as the organizational rebel/misfit is carried to its next logical step when he starts to work for himself. But that same evolutionary spirit infuses the entire series. Each year of Mannix has a different feel to it. Mannix carries a constant set of themes throughout, but the main characters evolve throughout all of the years. The result is a uniquely American character - and the best one TV ever produced.

Both Bond and Mannix are iconic characters in the genre of those who fight the good fight with high physical energy and lots of self-reliance. But the contrasts are equally interesting, and they say something uniquely positive about our American culture and the American spirit. While Bond had special agent status within a governmental organization, Mannix works for himself - he has an everyman quality, proud of his heritage as second-generation and being his own man (transcending his father's wishes for his life). While Bond works to save the world, Mannix works to help individuals - one day, one story at a time. While Bond works on assignments that come from those who govern, Mannix relies upon the next case to come to him in its own time. While Bond uses his special gadgets, Mannix relies upon his guts. While Bond is a lady's man, Mannix seldom gets the girl. While Bond overcomes all obstacles with little to no damage to himself, Mannix gets beat up and shot a lot - thus including sacrifice, which has a distinctly biblical theme (as acknowledged in an October 31, 1970 TV Guide article on the Mannix writers).
