Considered one of the most violent television series of its era, this show followed the adventures of Los Angeles, California private investigator Joe Mannix, who first worked for a detective agency known as Intertect, which relied heavily on computers and a large network of operatives. In the second season, Mannix opened his own agency, with police widow Peggy Fair working for him as his secretary. Each episode featured plenty of fistfights, car chases, and shoot-outs.Written by

In the 8 years Mannix was on, he was knocked out physically or by drugs 93 times. He was shot 18 times. He was knocked down and woozy many times but got right back up ready for more. I've watched every show consecutively twice and wrote down every time he was knocked out or shot. Mannix was also a race car driver and pilot. He was an expert fighter and was a POW during the Korean war. In real life Mike Connors was in WWII and played basketball and football in high school and college. See more »
The reel-to-reel tape drives seen throughout the series never have read/write heads. Unless a tape drive has a read/write head, the tape that it uses cannot be read or written to by the computer, and thus the tape drive is useless. See more »
As a fan of mannix when it ran originally and now that it is in reruns I can say I think its the best detective series ever created. the plot ,action ,music,camerawork,guest stars and especially the stars made the show great.My favorite seasons are the first and fifth.I would love to see the last season again .There were actually 194 episodes made. If you get the chance to watch this classic show then you will be hooked.
