Storyline

A group of boys who play baseball together hire Joe Mannix to look for their coach, who has gone missing shortly before an important game. Mannix discovers that the man was actually an ex-con who changed his name as soon as he was released, and failed to keep even one appointment with his parole officer. Mannix begins to believe that the man's disappearance may be explained by the number of other criminals who seem determined to locate him -- possibly to silence him for good. Written by aldanoli

Better than the usual "Mannix" episode.
2 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

While I enjoy watching my DVDs of "Mannix", I must admit that the show had more than its share of clichés. Too often, Joe is bashed over the head, charges into danger without backup and overcomes folks who have loaded guns aimed right at him. While this show has a few of these, at least it seemed to try a bit harder to avoid these mistakes. For example, when he thinks that perhaps Peggy is in trouble, Joe calls for police backup!

The show begins with some kids from Little League hiring Mannix to find their missing coach. Joe's investigation leads him to discover that the nice, beloved coach is actually a guy who recently got out of prison and jumped parole! How could the very nice guy that his team, employer and girlfriend talk about be on the run from the law? And, if he is, why? Well, at the same time, a group of mobsters are looking for the guy--and so you know something big is going on here.

As I said, the show avoided many clichés. Sure, there still is a scene where the missing coach beats up a thug...yet leaves the gun lying on the ground! And, the ending is a bit tough to believe. But, despite these things, the show is quite interesting and better than usual.
