Storyline

Brad Turner, a young black man who is an old friend of Peggy's, shows up at her door one night with his friend Jimmy Whitewing, who is part Indian. They were in a liquor store when it was held up, with Jimmy getting wounded during the incident, making it look like Brad and Jimmy committed the robbery. Peggy performs first aid on Jimmy, but also calls Joe Mannix. When Mannix tries to convince them to go to the police, however, they flee. Mannix nevertheless decides to investigate the matter, hoping to exonerate them. Written by aldanoli

Interesting episode undone by various weak story elements.
23 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with two drunk idiots coming into a liquor store and annoying the life out of the mom and pop who run the place. While the woman goes to the back room to phone the police, some robbers enter the place and kill her husband--and the two innocent drunks run off (one of which has been shot). She naturally assumes these two robbed and killed the husband and she alerts the police. In the meantime, the unhurt drunk (Georg Sanford Brown) goes to Peggy's apartment asking her for help. She calls her boss, Mannix, and he comes as soon as he can. And, despite the two drunks being IDIOTS, Joe Mannix is determined to help them--though they sure make it seem difficult for him to help!

The idea of the episode is quite good. Unfortunately, several times during the show people do stupid things--so stupid that you question the writing. One dumb glitch was the drunk who was shot in the stomach. Despite this belly wound, he was AMAZINGLY tough--too tough. Instead of behaving like an injured guy, late in the show he's more like the Terminator! Also at one point in the show, Mannix has been captured and is about to get killed--when the police show up and save his bacon. Fine. But there is no reason that they found him--how could they know where he was being held?! They said 'Peggy called us'--but she didn't know where he was either!! Watchable and interesting, but a show filled with holes.
