What a difference a couple of decades make! After a few episodes I was left astounded at the quality of writing, acting, and cinematography. It was a pleasure to see the guest stars. The fourth episode of the first season had scenes in a coffee house, featuring Neil Diamond as the entertainment! Mike Connors is wonderful and compelling in the lead. No metrosexual he, in the same episode that featured Neil Diamond Mike Connors worked undercover as a car mechanic and actually fixed cars! He leapt tall buildings. He had a way with a gun. It is also delightful that this show was written in pre-politically correct days. Unrepentant Nazis were bad guys, thieves were bad guys; today's bad guys are all armed forces service members, business owners, ministers.
You also do not see each plot point coming; each episode still has the power to surprise.
It is also a joy to see outdoor scenery, filmed in real deserts and zoos (not computer generated deserts and zoos or cheap, artificial sets).
Another remarkable feature is that the detective agency Mannix works for is a very early-on technology user. Computers were the size of closets in those days, full of blinking lights.
Mike Connors introduces each episode in audio. I would recommend this to anyone in search of an excellent viewing experience, and not just the predictable, politically correct white noise that most of today's shows resemble.
