A superb thriller - One of the best episodes of the entire series!
13 April 2015 | by (Scottsdale, AZ) – See all my reviews

This episode of Mannix is one of the best episodes I've seen so far, despite being the second one in a row that uses the very familiar theme of a small town in the middle of nowhere whose citizens are all tight-lipped and mean and want Joe out because they're afraid he's going to discover their secret.

The episode begins with Joe's car breaking down out in the middle of nowhere while he's on his way to Toluca Lake to do some fishing. The only house he finds after abandoning the car is occupied by a group of strange individuals who are led by a character named Morell (played by John Hillerman) who lets Mannix into the house. I'll let you find out on your own what happens from this point forward.

The episode features terrific performances from Hillerman and the lovely Barbara Luna, both of whom always seem to play interesting characters. It also features a great performance by Frank Langella whose character Harry Tass has the most bizarre and scary quivering eyes you'll ever see! Also, instead of the normal suit and tie, you get to see Mannix in a classic '70s leisure suit!

This episode is fantastic. It's action-packed and suspenseful and will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout. It also has a shocking twist at the end. The scenery is great too. Don't miss this one! It's one of the best episodes of the series!
