5.0 out of 5 stars Relax -- Joe Mannix Is On the Case! July 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mannix returns with more two-fisted action in the Third Season of this Classic TV detective series in a 6-disc DVD boxed set.

CBS Paramount Home Video is quickly following the successful release of Season 1 and 2 of this iconic TV series on DVD with the release of the Complete Season 3. Both of the earlier seasons have had very high quality video and audio remastered episode transfers, so hopefully this release will continue that tradition.

In addition, CBS Parmount Home Video has said that ALL of the ORIGINAL musical score and cues for every episode are included and have not replaced! (They had been sharply criticized by fans for replacing some of the music cues in Season 2 of the Classic TV series The Fugitive.)

Mannix ran from 1967 through 1975 on CBS. Created by Richard Levinson and William Link and developed by executive producer Bruce Geller (who also created Mission: Impossible), the title character, Joe Mannix, is a tough and very cool L.A. private investigator, portrayed with grace and gusto by Mike Connors.

Rarely has an actor so inhabited a TV character that it's impossible to separate the two. This series represents one of those times, and even the show's producers underscored that by applying the unusual credit which proclaimed: 'Mike Connors IS Mannix.'

By the time Season 3 premiered in September 1969, Mannix was already well ensconced as a huge TV hit, and producers responded by providing a solid season of great stories, and a lot of the hard-hitting action that it was known for. Season 2 had introduced Gail Fisher as Mannix's devoted secretary, Peggy Fair, and she reprised her role here and remained throughout the series run. (FYI: Ms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 3 of The Classic TV Private Eye Series August 5, 2009
Format:DVD
Mannix, starring Mike Connors, was one of television's greatest private eyes. Only Tom Selleck's Thomas Magnum and James Garner's Jim Rockford would seem to be in the same category as far as popularity, durability, and enjoyment. Forged in the tough, hardboiled tradition of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, Mannix brought these novelists' archtypes to the small screen - beaten up, beats up, lied to, and tied up. But he endured for eight seasons.

The third season continues the era of the show that Mannix is best remember for - his cool house, office, and girl Friday Peggy Fair. The first season of the show saw Mannix work not for himself, but a detective agency that used the first type of computers to solve crimes, and Mannix was seen as a dinosaur who was doing things the old fashioned way. The second season follows the pattern that most fans remember and cherish.

This series is one I've been waiting for forever. For all of us who grew up admiring him as THE private eye before Rockford and Magnum came on the scene, it's high time that this was released on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uneven Episodes, but Mike Connors IS Mannix! November 3, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Mannix" would get 5 stars from me, simply because it is one of the most entertaining, involving detective shows of it's era, and Mike Connors defines cool! Still, I have to admit, the third season is a mixed bag, episode-wise; I suspect a number of episodes ran 'long', and were cut to fit time requirements, and, as a result, seem rushed, with unresolved issues at the closing credits ("Tooth of the Serpent": What happened to the father/son reconciliation?...Chancellor never speaks!..."The Sound of Darkness": Where is the missing money?..."The Search for Darrell Andrews": Why is Andrews murdered?...And these are only a few of the plotholes). Balancing this, however, are some really excellent episodes ("War of Nerves" is a genuine nailbiter!), and Mike Connors, who gives some of his best performances of the series' entire run, in Season Three. In "Return to Summer Grove", Mannix returns to his hometown, we discover the rift between Joe and his father (the wonderfully cranky Victor Jory), and Connors gives a moving portrayal of a son in pain, unable to reconcile. "The Sound of Darkness" is even better; Joe is blinded when grazed by a bullet, revealing his hidden demons, as he sinks into despair and self-pity. And for anyone who thinks Mannix is always right, "Blind Mirror" is a revelation, as he picks the wrong man as the murderer! Joe Mannix is truly 'fleshed out' this season, revealing more of his Armenian roots and wisdom, an occasional snappish reply, and a genuine vulnerability that is endearing. And Gail Fisher is all warmth and prickly common sense, as secretary Peggy Fair. They make a great team!

Some great guest stars brighten the season. Besides Robert Reed's welcome return as Detective Lt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contact Paramount for Season 4, 5, 6, etc. October 3, 2010
Format:DVD
Mannix fans. Paramount has apparently stopped making DVD's w/ just 3 of at least 7 Mannix seasons.
If you want more, please either email: phe_customerservice@paramount.com or write to: Paramount Home Entertainment 5555 Melrose Ave. Hollywood, CA 90038.
And yes, I liked the third season. Always enjoyed the episodes where Mike was temporarily blinded, or hopping on one foot, or had a busted arm. Mannix, MI & Kung Fu were the last great TV series in the 70's. It all turned to Emergency, The Hulk, A-Team, Quincy, & much worse after 1974.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun TV show. But a bit high on price.
This is one great fun TV show. I have all of Mannix. This was when TV was worth watching. And you had to watch a good 50-55 mins to see who done it! And why. The actors could act. Read more
