Yet another installment in a very familiar theme but this one is well done except for the lighting
This episode is yet another example of a common theme used several times throughout the run of Mannix where Mannix is in a remote town where everyone is very unfriendly and want to run Joe out of town because they're holding on to a secret that they don't want anyone else to know about. However, despite the familiar theme, this episode is very well done.
The episode begins with the crash of a small plane near this remote town, but I won't go into any more details beyond that but I will say that the episode is very suspenseful and has several good fight scenes, and in one of those scenes, Mannix uses an ingenious way to take down one of the bad guys.
The one problem I had with the episode, and the reason why I didn't give it a higher rating than 8, is the lighting throughout much of the episode is unusually poor, even in the scenes that are shot outdoors in broad daylight. There's just a dark haze sitting over most of the scenes. But other than that, this is a very solid episode and one of the better episodes of this season so far.
