I've said elsewhere (see the "Mannix is Coming!" thread on [...] that if I was forced to be on a desert island with only one season of "Mannix," this could well be the season I'd choose -- and, believe me, it would be a difficult choice. Each season of "Mannix" has a tone all its own, while always being true to its main themes of toughness, individuality and sacrifice blended with gentle good grace and humor. Each season has special moments to savor.
As of this writing, let's assume that CBS/Paramount will continue to do the right thing by "Mannix" and not only release the entire series, at long last, but also continue to give us high quality DVDs with the digitally re-mastered episodes packaged in beautiful menus that capture the spirit of the show. Thanks CBS/Paramount! And the fact that these episodes are uncut means that what you get with these DVDs is what the series was meant to be -- a singular character study with subtle but oh so graceful character relationships revealed, often in very small nuances.
In season 7 is an episode where Art Malcolm gets married ("A Night Full of Darkness") -- a lot happens in there that sounds like so much less on the surface than it winds up being on screen. And you also get the last season of Adam Tobias -- presumably Robert Reed's absence from the final season of "Mannix" (season 8) had something to do with his not showing up to the filming of the last episode of "The Brady Bunch.Read more ›
"A Word Call Courage" and "The Empty Tower", the others have the same interesting, sophisticated stories that will keep any Mannix fan happy. The only dud is the two-part episode called "Bird of Prey". It is slow and quite boring.
It must have been the way CBS had to get in the usual 24 episodes, because it is pathetic. If your just discovering
Mannix on DVD purchase the seasons in order and keep a keen eye on how the show matures over the eight year period.
The production value and set design was called "Picasso-like", because of it's lavish look. The action sequences
are extremely well done and Mike Connors along with the supporting actors and actresses are terrific. Stay away from
the three two-part episodes in seasons one, seven, and eight, they do not represent the creativity that made the show endure as a one hour program for so long. Seasons four and five are without a doubt the best of all the seasons. The majority of the episodes are worth owning and watching mulitple times. I know that once you discover Mannix you will have an appreciation for it for life.
Mannix can put 95% of the trash on TV now to shame. Mannix was when TV was worth watching. Get it, you will be glad you did...
