Pretty exciting stuff
15 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Huntdown" is a bit similar to an episode of "Quincy" ("Visitors in Paradise", season two episode four). In both cases, the leading character comes to a rural town and is greeted VERY inhospitably by the locals. In fact, it soon appears that someone might kill them unless they go home now!

This program begins with Mannix having his foot in a cast--he'd gotten it shot in a recent case. But he's too bored just sitting around and begs his boss for a case...ANYTHING to keep him busy. So, he's given a VERY simple task--one that should have been strictly routine. But, it turns out to be anything but routine. In fact, when he asks about this guy's whereabouts, folks are rude, evasive and threatening. Eventually, he's tossed into jail on trumped up charges and isn't allowed to call anyone. Why?! What is going on here? Why are folks so hostile?!

"Huntdown" is a very good episode. It's well written and different from the style show so far seen in "Mannix". Exciting, clever and the payoff at the end was quite good. It's also interesting because it's one of the few episodes up to that point where Joe Mannix actually kills someone...in self-defense, of course. Interestingly, in the next episode, Mannix increases his body count. Perhaps the network insisted on more, I don't know.
