Surprisingly good!
25 August 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have watched about half of season 4 of "Mannix" and think that this one is, so far, the best of the season. It's well written, has a nice twist ending AND offers a slight change of venue.

The show begins in Hong Kong (or at least Hollywood's version along with some stock footage). A woman is out shopping when she notices she's being followed. She returns to see her husband and he's behaving weirdly--so weirdly that he tells her to go home to the US, as he's a 'dead man'! Soon, he rushes from the room and very soon you hear a shotgun blast--and he's dead!

When the widow returns to America, she is shocked to see the same Asian man at the funeral who was following her in Hong Kong. Not surprisingly, she goes to Mannix for help. Soon, murders and attempted murders start piling up--and there's no end in sight unless Mannix untangles this mess. However, and I liked this, the main suspect turns out to be a dead end. So who is behind all this and why?

The show is exciting and well written--making it well worth your time. I usually guess the twist and didn't in this one--and I like that. Well worth seeing as well as a surprisingly chance to see Gloria Grahame in a supporting role late in the episode.

NOTE: Although I really liked this one, I must admit that the stunt doubles in the finale were awful and if you are paying attention, you'll see these are NOT the actors playing the parts doing most of the fighting!
