Storyline

Considered one of the most violent television series of its era, "Mannix" followed the adventures of L.A. private eye Joe Mannix, who first worked for a detective agency known as Intertect, which relied heavily on computers and a large network of operatives. In the second season, Mannix opened his own agency, with police widow Peggy Fair working for him as his secretary. Each episode featured plenty of fistfights, car chases and shootouts.

Trivia

The olive-colored books with black and red trim seen behind Mannix' and occasionally behind Peggy's desks are actually law books often seen in attorney's offices, which contain sequential reported appeals court decisions. As it would be unlikely for a real-life private investigator to have law books in his office, they were probably chosen simply because they were an attractive way to fill up the bookshelves, and because they could be acquired somewhat inexpensively from a bookstore or a retiring attorney.

Better than it had to be
5 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

There's lots of competition in the private investigator premise for TV shows, but this was a standout in believability. Reminding one of the Johnny Cash quote, "Winners got scars, too", Joe Mannix got a fat lip or two but usually prevailed, or strategically retreated. Sort of a forerunner of the Jim Rockford character in occasional discretion-is-the-better-part-of-valor angles. Some episodes are now on VHS.
