Storyline

Newspaper publisher Darrell Bigelow has political ambitions, but is concerned about the extramarital activities of his wife, Rebekah. Bigelow hires Joe Mannix to "bring her home," and Mannix is soon able to track her down. But his easy success in closing the case soon leads Mannix to suspect that Bigelow's story was a cover-up, and that he used Mannix for a different, and much darker, purpose. Written by aldanoli

Same old same old Safe episode
29 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Not much to write home about here. As run of the mill, paint by numbers as they come.If you've been watching all 8 seasons you've seen this basic episode too many times to count.

Joe is hired by a rich powerful man to solve a mystery but things aren't always what they seem. Seems the guy is trying to use Mannix to set an elaborate alibi and cover his tracks but hey it's Joe Mannix we're talking about here. He can't be fooled! Smelling a rat at how easily the case initially wraps up Joe really digs in to find out what's going on. Keep a sharp eye out for Tom Selleck, or a sharp ear should I say. There's a character with a very small cameo being interviewed by a TV news crew and you'll recognize the voice immediately. Then you spot the mustache and there's no doubt.

I really wanted to like this show and I was initially intrigued but that quickly turned to boredom as it was all way too familiar. Even the ending induced yawns.
