Storyline

Two crop-dusting pilots who worked for orange grower Clint Carpenter have vanished without a trace. Joe Mannix is asked by his former military buddy, Dave Winters, who runs the crop-dusting service, to help solve the mystery of their disappearance. Mannix returns to the California farmland of his youth posing as a new pilot, but soon finds himself in the middle of a feud between his client and the local Armenian farm workers - whose leader claims that he and his people were cheated out of the land Carpenter now cultivates.

Very good except for one cliché....and it's a bad one!
6 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I enjoy "Mannix" and even went so far as to buy all 8 seasons of the show, it does suffer from a few clichés. To some degree I can accept them as they made so many episodes but a few are annoying. The worst is Mannix getting bashed over the head. In the first season, this happened something like 278325 times--and, while not quite as often in subsequent seasons, he STILL got bashed so much that you'd have expected him to have a brain like tapioca!! Another is someone who is Joe's friend. Again and again, friends are introduced...only to be killed only moments later!! Here in an otherwise decent show, "Harvest of Death", Joe meets up with an old friend...and soon assumes room temperature!! This alone is why I cannot score this one any higher than a 6.

As for the show, its plot is actually rather interesting. A rich guy keeps hiring guys to crop dust his fields--and each of these guys disappears! Obviously someone doesn't want the crops touched and is out to ruin the rich guy. So, our indestructible Mannix volunteers to dust the crops...and investigate.

In this show, you get to hear Mannix speak a bit of Armenian. This is in line with his character and in a couple previous shows you heard him speak a bit of the language with his father (Victor Jory). I liked this as it gave depth to the character. Too bad the show is too clichéd to be a great episode.
