A different twist on the old hit over the hit cliché....
7 June 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

One of the most useless clichés in old detective shows is being bonked over the head. In most cases, only moments later the detective is just fine and suffers no ill-effects from this...whereas in reality, a blow hard enough to knock you out would likely cause serious permanent injuries. On the show "Mannix", he was routinely bashed over the head- -perhaps as often as a hundred times and by then he should have been a drooling guy in some sort of long-term care facility! Well, while the injury isn't exactly permanent, in this episode of "Cannon", Frank Cannon is bashed over the head and he is a mess. It's not so much that he just has amnesia...he cannot think straight and obviously has a serious concussion. This is a big problem, as he was taking money for a ransom and now he isn't sure what he's now doing in a crappy little town...and the greedy townsfolk and the kidnappers are more than willing to do anything to get their hands on a briefcase filled with cash that Cannon has on him.

Overall, this isn't exactly a brilliant episode but it's a good one and at least doesn't show the detective as being resilient when it comes to being bashed over the noggin by baddies. Worth seeing.
