Diehard Mannix fans will be standing in line to buy this release.

Mannix ran for 8 years and 194 episodes. Only 130 were syndicated in the U.S. after the show went off the air in 1975. The remaining 64 episodes comprised all of Season 1, most of Season 7, and all of Season 8. Now that Seasons 1 and 7 have both been released on DVD, this release will close the loop on all the "missing" episodes that Mannix fans have been talking about and hoping for over the past 37 years. And since the quality of the first seven releases were superlative and uncut, this edition should prove to be a real treat, too.

Pre-order it now!

I have purchased and watched all 8 seasons of Mannix DVDs, most of which I watched when it was first aired. For those who are unfamiliar with this fantastic series, you might wonder should you start with the first season or the last? Although Season 1 offers the added bonus of an interview with Mike Connors, I believe the show really hit its stride about two-thirds of the way through its run. By that point Mike Connors and Gail Fisher, his costar and African-American secretary, had developed a genuine rapport. Throughout all 8 seasons Mike Connors remained a credible action hero since he has the athletic ability to carry off the running, jumping, climbing, fighting, and skiing that his role required. The series is noteworthy among crime shows in that it consistently had a respectful treatment of blacks, Mexican immigrants, and Mannix's Armenian heritage. While the final episode in Season 8 does not end with a grand finale, it did carry on the show's consistent high quality with direction by Bill Bixby and guest stars William Windom, John Ritter, and James Hampton.

Mannix is one great fun TV show. And still is after all the years. Mannix can put 95% of the trash on TV now to shame.
If you like the good old fun TV shows. Mannix is a must have.
Get all of Mannix. You will be glad you did.

It is hard to imagine that when "Mannix" was brought to syndication in the late 1970s, the first and final seasons were never shown for reasons unknown. But this classic detective series gets the greatest sendoff with final season and I was happy. I never saw this final season until I got this DVD and I was not disappointed. Mannix is by far, one of the greatest detective shows of all time!

I really enjoyed the series when I was in high school and to see it now almost 40 years later is great. All the action yet very little, or no blood, is ever shown.
His car is wrecked on a regular basis yet it always looks good and handles the way he needs it to. This season he drives a Blue Camero, not a Dodge convertible.
The back of his head should have a metal plate in it from all the times he has been knocked out, yet he always gets back up and solves the case.
Great show then and now!

After purchasing all eight seasons and enjoying each of them. The final season has many excellent episodes as the other seven
seasons did. Mannix is one of the few television shows that never lost it's integrity or declined in quality as the seasons continued
over the years. The best seasons are still the forth and fifth. However, if your a fan it is worth owning all the seasons.

I love this whole series. I enjoy the fact that they are not gory or profane like most detective series today. They also have a lot of twists to the plot so fun to watch.

We all love the Mannix series....'nough said. I purchased and watched them all, and wish to assure all purchasers that you will be buying the highest quality dvds I have yet to see, other than perhaps the Lucy series. No glitches, freezes, skips, audio drops...nothing bad at all. Very pleased, indeed, and this quality endorsement goes for all of the previous season's worth of Mannix dvds. Simply, the best!

Mike Connors as private detective Joe Mannix entertained us for eight fabulous seasons from 1967 through 1975, and I am thrilled to own the DVD sets for all eight seasons, finally completing my set with this last (but not least) one. Right up to the end the shows were action-packed and featured terrific guest stars, they were always great fun to watch, and my husband & I frequently grab a disc set and watch a Mannix show because it's so much better than most regular TV programming nowadays. Below is a list of the shows on each disc in this Mannix Season 8 (1974 - 1975) 6DVD set, along with each show's featured guest stars:

We are glad that the final season was released and we have completed the series. We watched Mannix years ago on television and we were able to revisit him
