Did You Know?


After the teaser and the opening titles, the first scene opens on a western movie set and depicts an extended fist fight that begins in a bar and tumbles out into the street. At the end of the fight, we're shown that it is, indeed, a movie set and not a western. The uncredited director of the western fight scene, who shares a few words with Joe Mannix, is played by Bruce Geller. Geller was the creator of "Mission: Impossible" and the producer of this season of "Mannix"; this is one of only two on-screen acting appearances by Geller. (His only credited screen acting role was in the 1975 TV movie "Fear on Trial," in which he played his own father, Judge Abraham Geller, in a landmark court case.) See more »


The Roy Bradley character tells Mannix he's supposed to pay a blackmailer $20,000 and asks Mannix to make the payoff. When he hands Mannix an envelope with the money, Mannix takes out the money, partially fans it, and immediately says that there's only $8,000. Because the money consists of $100 bills and isn't banded or otherwise marked, it realistically should have taken Mannix between 30 seconds and a minute to count that much money. See more »

Once again, Mannix takes a couple serious blows to the head!
16 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A crook (Joe Mantell) breaks into a psychiatrist's office and steals client files. Using this information, he begins blackmailing patients NOT to divulge their secrets. When Mannix is hired to make one of these payoffs, he takes it on himself to not just make the delivery but to investigate and stop this creep. Things get really serious when it turns out that one of the patients whose records were stolen turns out to be a dangerous mobster--and then things get really interesting.

I loved the plot of this show. A similar but better version of the story was done on "Hawaii Five-O"--where instead of a guy stealing patient records, a sociopathic creep places listening devices all over a psychiatrist's office and learns all kinds of secrets. Both are very compelling but a minor quibble I have with "Mannix" is that in reality, most therapists (at least the competent ones) keep minimal notes and should not have any documentation of incriminating information--in case of burglary or court subpoena (which was definitely the case when I was a therapist). But, most folks wouldn't know that and it doesn't negatively impact this exciting episode.

By the way, in keeping with tradition, Mannix gets knocked out in this episode. In fact, it happens twice!! Considering he was knocked unconscious over fifty times in the series AND suffered countless other head injuries, his brain should have been the consistency of tapioca!!
