It's BOLO time!
23 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, Peggy is at a nightclub listening to Vince/Vance Logan* (Lou Rawls) perform. Soon, however, the police show up and want to interview Logan. It's NOT about anything that bad--but Logan panics and runs away after threatening one of the cops with a gun. Why did he do this? It makes little sense.

Not surprisingly, the guy turns out to be one of Mannix's old friends (who isn't on this series!?) and Joe tries to get Logan to give himself up. But dumb old Logan tries to run and gets shot. Now he's in the hospital getting surgery.

So what's next? Is Logan guilty of something much more serious? And how does a goofy guy named Bolo (William Marshall) relate to all this? Check out the show if you are curious.

This isn't a bad episode at all. What I thought was most interesting is that Mannix often had black clients and characters. It also could have just become like a blackspoitation episode here with pimps, drug lords and the like but avoided the cheap stereotypes. Well worth seeing even if the whole bolo angle is dumb.

By the way, at one point Logan is shot and the doctors are all panicky because he has a rare blood type and needs special blood. Actually, while AB+ is pretty rare, it's a GREAT blood type as a person with this blood type can take any blood--A, B, AB or O! The writer should have done his homework! You can check this out here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ABO_blood_group_system.

*Why do I call him Vince/Vance? IMDb does--take a look at the summary and compare it to the list of characters in the show.
