Goofs

In the scene when Mannix is brought into the hospital room in a strait jacket, the position of the water jug on the table at the foot of his bed changes from shot to shot, first being centered and then being near the corner of the table even though no one moves it. When Mannix tries to loosen his restraints on the edge of the table, he tips the jug over, knocks off its lid, and pushes it off the cloth on which it had been sitting. Then Dr. Adams enters the room and the cloth is once again smoothed out, the jug (although still on its side) is again resting atop the cloth, and the lid is back on the jug. See more »

Up until the very end, I would have scored this one a 7.

"Beyond the Shadow of a Dream" is a very frustrating episode of "Mannix". That's because it's a pretty good episode and I enjoyed it--but then the ending was SO DUMB that it made me want to toss the DVD into the wall! Yes, it's that stupid.

"Mannix" meets a woman who is having some very vivid and weird dreams. However, those around her seem amazingly blasé about them. Even when Mannix hears a gun go off, they again seem to thing the dreams are nothing. Only later, when he is told that the woman has only been recently released from a mental hospital does it all begin to make sense...or does it?! Not a bad idea for a show. You really aren't sure if the woman is bonkers or not. BUT, at the very end, she and the psychiatrist on the case end up in a long and passionate kiss--what the $%*# was that?! Unprofessional, stupid and...well, stupid! A clearly sub-par episode, that's for sure.
