Storyline

Joe Mannix goes undercover by joining a New Orleans mob to learn the identity of another member of the organization who wants to turn state's evidence against the head mobster, Lytell. His task becomes complicated, however, when he begins a romance with a woman named Angela who is close to Lytell and may still be loyal to him -- and when he learns that there is an informer within New Orleans' law enforcement who has tipped Lytell that there is an informant in his organization, too.

While really good, this might have been better as the season opener.

The show begins with some guys committing a burglary and one of them, Joe Mannix, killing a cop who responds to the call. Of course Joe didn't really kill a cop--it's a set-up to help the mob think he's one of them. You then learn that Joe's been deep under cover for months--spending some time in prison and then joining up with a New Orleans mob. What follows is really exciting but it does make you question WHEN Mannix did all this. After all, he was in a normal episode the week earlier! Perhaps this might have been better as a season opener--with the summer hiatus being when Mannix did all this undercover stuff before the episode begins.

Joe's job is to determine if he can get the evidence on the mob leader, Lytell (John Colicos) as well as determine who in the gang is willing to squeal--all this without being caught himself. It's a complicated and interesting episode, though the stock footage they used for Miami was really poorly done--quite grainy and the view from Mannix's hotel room at the beach was obviously just a large photo. But even with the problems with this and the time element, the show is exciting and has a nice relationship between Mannix and a pretty lady. Worth seeing despite a few minor glitches.
