Storyline

Joe Mannix is visited by Japanese detective Tami Okada (whose first name is pronounced as if spelled "Tommy"). Searching for a missing Japanese government courier who was apparently kidnapped upon arrival in Los Angeles, Okada asks Mannix for help. Mannix agrees, escorting Okada to the Japanese Village in Buena Park, and to "Little Tokyo" -- but their investigation soon leads to suspicions that the courier's disappearance may have been staged.

A nice change of pace
16 April 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the story begins, a courier headed to the Japanese consulate in Los Angeles is picked up by a fake diplomatic driver. Soon, a private eye from Japan arrives. Tami Okada (Mako) has been hired to find the missing man and thus restore honor to the family. What follows is a partnership between Tami and Joe Mannix, as both teach the other about their respective cultures. It's a nice change of pace for the show...a bit like the movie "Red Sun"....but where both the leads are nice folks instead of one of them being a thug. Well worth seeing and some much needed freshness breathed into the show in its eighth season.

By the way, this is the second time Japanese Village in Los Angeles has been featured on "Mannix"--the other much earlier in the series. The place apparently closed down in 1975 but sure looks like it was an interesting place.
