Ugghh!

3/10

This is a dreadful episode of "Mannix" and I can't see how anyone could enjoy this one...except, perhaps, for it's camp value.

It all begins with a woman jumping into Mannix's cab at the airport. She is being chased and asks Mannix to help her. For his efforts, this lady ends up screwing Mannix over completely, as she's being chased by mobsters and they end up kidnapping Peggy by mistake. Then, she skips the country and Mannix has no idea what to do next.

What follows COULD have been very good. After all, in the first few seasons of "Mannix", Peggy got kidnapped all the time...and it had been a while since they used this plot element. But here's where it all falls apart...one of the mobsters, Lonnie, is told to kill Peggy and instead he decides to keep her as he has a hidden basement room (huh?). And, it turns out Lonnie is insane and has weird seizures that make Cagney's in "White Heat" look downright subtle! In fact, watching Lincoln Kilpatrick gyrating and moaning and overacting horribly is awful...but awfully funny as well. Overall, an embarrassingly bad episode...and yet another sign that the series had peaked long ago and perhaps eight seasons was a season or two too many.
