Storyline

Jenny Cole, the daughter of a friend of Joe Mannix, awakens after almost a year in a coma following a hit-and-run accident. But the celebration of her return to health is soon cut short when someone tries to kill Jenny. This leads Mannix to conclude that Jenny must have seen something on the day of the accident that she shouldn't have seen -- and that someone wants to tie up that loose end by "putting her to sleep" permanently.

Don't you just hate it when you've been in a coma almost a year and when you FINALLY wake up, folks start trying to kill you?!
16 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Jenny Cole (Pamela Franklin) has been in a coma almost a year following being hit by a car. Suddenly, she awakens and while everyone is thrilled, their excitement is dampened when someone starts trying to kill Jenny...including a bullet that went whizzing through her hospital window! Naturally, the old family friend, Mannix, is going to get to the bottom of this. But when they take Jenny to the scene of the old accident, a sniper is waiting and this plan to job her memory might not be the smartest thing they've ever done!

While it IS an exciting episode, it also has one of the oldest and worst detective show clichés. Someone knows more about the shootings...and calls Mannix. Instead of telling him on the phone what he knew, he says he wants to meet the detective in person...and you KNOW that means the guy will be dead...and very very soon! I hate this cliché. Apart from that, it is pretty good...with some good twists and turns. Plus the story is very original....so ignore this cliché and enjoy.
