Mannix and his ascot go in search for the Bard.

A bit silly...but enjoyable. That's about how I'd sum up this one. The
show begins with a neighbor of Mannix, Roger Bard (Christopher Cary),
being met in his office by a man who is, apparently, from Scotland
Yard. However, Bard is quick-thinking and locks the man in his closet.
Then, on the way to make his escape, Bard drops by Mannix's office to
tell Joe that there was someone locked in his closet!! Mannix has no
idea what's happening, but after letting out the man, he sees that
Bard's office is a front--he doesn't have any sort of business at all!
Soon he learns that Bard is responsible for a robbery--a robbery in the
UK that netted two million pounds!! And so the rest of the show
concerns the Scotland Yard guy, a gang and Mannix all trying to track
down Bard. And, of course, in the end, Joe ends up outsmarting everyone
since the show IS "Mannix", not "Bard"! Overall, a decent but mentally
undemanding show. You'll probably enjoy it, but it isn't among the
series' best. But it is worth watching--just so you can once again see
Mannix wearing an ascot--sort of like Fred from "Scooby Doo".
