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.

A Mannix fan since October '67, I had never seen the final seasons' episodes. I knew there were changes- the Camaro hero car for one- and I knew the series was getting a little long in tooth. Having seem most of the discs I know I needn't've worried.
A few observations:
*Some of the episodes seem to ne 'inspired' by earlier ones but after 160+ shows what series wouldn't be?
*Ol' Joe is still getting whacked on the head A LOT. The final whack was delivered by a young John Ritter, trying his hand at villainry. His bottle connected and Connors really did go to his knees from the assault. Time to retire. Ritter was wise to go to comedy.
*The production quality was excellent! There is one continuity problem with a car in an early episode, but the rest was flawless.
*Gotta love the sport coats! A friend owns the '68 Dart used in the 2nd and 3rd seasons of the show (google MANNIX DART GTS/C Van Tune) and took it to Mike Connors' home, Connors gave him one of the jackets... he has dozens from the show. Perfect for the era... Loud was in!
*The direction of the episodes was excellent! I'm especially fond of the Bill Bixby ep 'The Empty Tower'... maybe a liiiiittle predictable but still fun.
* Mike Connors ,ay have been a little tired by year 8 but his [performances were solid and dammit, you LIKE the guy! Too bad there wasn't a fitting revival of the show in TV Movies like happened with ROckford and Columbo. Intried... I wrote one with a friend in the '90s that woulda been good!
* Mannix was always a good primer on the Los Angeles landscape- excellent visuals especially toward the final episodes. Hollywood was different then!
* Buy the set, buy the whole series! Show Joe the proper respect!
AND...Happy 90th Birthday Mike Connors 8-25-2015!
But with these DVD sets I can watch my old favorites all I want.
The final season DVD set allows me to catch up on episodes I missed and allows me to see how the series came to a close.
We lost Mike Connors in January, so reruns are all we have left of him.
If you like the good old fun TV shows. Mannix is a must have.
Get all of Mannix. You will be glad you did.
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!
