Sam McCloud is a rustic country sheriff from a rural part of the United States. He travels to the big city and joins the police force, using his country ways and laid-back approach to nab the bad guys.
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 »
If you watch an episode of Mannix,you will want to watch the show daily.Now,the early 1968 episodes are definitely the best (particularly episode #13,A View of Nowhere)and you should try to catch these first.The 1970-1971 seasons are pretty bad.The last few episodes of '73 are action packed.If you love cop shows, take my advice and watch this one.
