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. Written by

Star Mike Connors complained that this show was not very good at showing the consequences of violence. He said Joe Mannix would get thrown down a flight of stairs in one scene and then appear without a scratch in the next. See more »
As a child growing up "Mannix",was the family get together hour on Saturday nights after either "Mission: Impossible", or "The Carol Burnett Show",which was on the CBS network. "Mannix" may have some of the usual PI fare,but it was like no other detective show ever! He may go beyond the limits to solving a case,but in turn he kicked major butt!!! Mike Connors was the PI who was always sufficient in doing what he had to do,but in some cases,ended up getting either in fights or shot at every once in a while. The camerawork on the show,as well as visual effects,and locations were a standard,and it raised the quality of it definely. There was a twist in every episode to see who done it,or got away with murder, which is lead by the assistance of his secretary Peggy(played by Gail Fisher,who won an Emmy for her work on the series back in 1969),who herself ended up in great danger,and it was always Joe Mannix to the rescue to save her from some craze stalker,drug pusher,or killer. The show's theme song is a classic by Lalo Schifrin,who also composed the theme to Mission:Impossible as well.
It still comes on in re-runs on TV Land,but was the action packed show(and one of the most violent ever for television) on Saturday nights for the CBS network, which ran from 1967-1975.
