Sam McCloud is a Marshal from Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police Department. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
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

In the first season, Mannix worked for a company named Intertect. While the company relied on high-tech methods to solve crimes, Mannix used old-fashioned smarts and intuition. After the first season the producers decided to dump the "new vs. old" conflict and put Mannix into private practice. See more »
The reel-to-reel tape drives seen throughout the series never have read/write heads. Unless a tape drive has a read/write head, the tape that it uses cannot be read or written to by the computer, and thus the tape drive is useless. See more »
One of my and many others most favorite TV show of all time! This show has it all, great production and acting, cast, writing, action, great visuals from the beginning credits to the end and awesome Lalo Shiffrin music to boot! This is the kind of TV show that not only showcased the best of the times it was originally done in, but also could serve as a inspiration and lesson to the writers and producers of action TV shows today to at least TRY to match this kind of quality in their productions!
