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, this show followed the adventures of Los Angeles, California private investigator 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 shoot-outs. Written by

During the 1972 to 1973 season, Mannix's car (a 1973 Plymouth Barracuda convertible) were actually three 1971 models updated (by changing the grill, headlights, hood, and taillights panel) to look like a 1973 Barracuda, as Plymouth no longer made the Barracuda as a convertible, and driving a convertible had been a Mannix trademark since the show began. Mannix began to drive the Challenger, which also went out of production. See more »
Throughout the series, Mannix has numerous interactions with the Los Angeles Police Department. The cars represented, however, are not similar to those used by Los Angeles; for one thing, the emergency equipment is different: while sometimes the correct arrangement for the period is shown (two light units side by side with a siren speaker in between), usually the police cars have a rotary beacon on top with an electromechanical siren under the hood, which is incorrect.

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!
