I hope the rest of season 8 isn't THIS painful!
16 April 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the first episode of the last season of "Mannix" and you'd assume they'd do their very best. Well, you'd be wrong. In fact, "Portrait in Blues" is just awful...and show that Mannix himself just isn't as hip and relevant as he'd hoped he was...though they sure try hard to make him seem young and relevant to youngsters.

The episode is all about a pop/rock duo who are doing just great...apart from the attempts on the life of Chris! Oddly, he just keeps laughing it all off...even when it soon is obvious that someone is definitely trying to kill him. Fortunately, Mannix is there to figure out which of the mostly cartoonish friends and enemies might be behind all this.

Where do I begin? The episode is jam-packed full of music...and clearly serves as filler. This is because the story itself if very weak and, at times, painful to watch. Don't say I didn't warn you about this one!
