Storyline

Joey, a young man who helped Mannix out on a previous case, shows up in the detective's apartment, injured from a beating. Mannix hides Joey and gets a call out to the police just before the apartment is overrun by hoods. Mannix is beaten and when he wakes up, Joey is gone. As the detective follows the trail, an organized front tries to buy Mannix off with a trip to Hong Kong on a supposed case. It turns out that the target of all this is a judge, whose daughter is in love with Joey. The syndicate wants to pressure the judge to move the site of a trial for an organized crime figure who is beginning to talk. Written by Bill Koenig

A dandy episode...but, wow, did I want to see someone slap that lady!
10 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am NOT a violent man and really hate seeing violence towards women in TV shows. However, in the case of the young lady in "Pressure Point", I sure was hoping someone would slug this crazy, spoiled 'lady'. More about that in a bit.

The show starts off with Joey Curtis seeking help from Mannix. He's been beaten badly and is hiding from someone and soon the someone (Jay Robinson) arrives with his goons. Mannix hides the guy and for his kind act, gets worked over--pretty typical for Mannix! When he comes to, Joey is gone and it looks like the baddies got him.

The trail leads to a very, very spoiled and obnoxious young lady who also happens to be the daughter of a judge presiding over a case involving mobsters. Not surprisingly, Mannix assumes that these muscle-men are somehow trying to exert pressure over the judge. Now here is the kicker--although it turns out that the judge IS being pressured, his daughter does everything she can to help the mobsters--mostly because she is a spoiled idiot. She also doesn't seem to care one bit about her loving father! The worst part was after Mannix rescued her and she tried repeatedly to make their car crash! How does all this work out? See the show.

This is one of the better episodes of "Mannix". Some of it is because the plot is very good. A lot of it is due to some nice supporting performances by some very experienced actors--such as Harold Stone and Paul Stewart. Additionally, Robinson played a really slimy villain--a major plus. Well worth seeing.
