A great episode, but with a very unhealthy Barry Atwater
17 April 2015 | by pkfloydmhSee all my reviews

This is a really good episode, and it's one of the best this season. The story is interesting and the acting is good, and it contains very few clichés. The fight scenes are really good too.

It's about a man who is killed in front of his young daughter, and Mannix is hired to find out why. The plot in this one is a bit complicated as there are a lot of names being thrown around, but it's not too bad if you're paying attention.

What's particularly notable about this episode is the unhealthy appearance of Barry Atwater, who has a noticeable bulging forehead as well as what appear to be protruding bones in both of his cheeks, near both eyes. It's well known that he was a heavy steroid user, and his bizarre-looking face appears to be a result of that. It's quite ironic that he plays a doctor here, because it certainly looks like he needs one. He ended up dying about four years after this episode aired.

A refreshing thing about this episode is it contains very few clichés. Joe doesn't get walloped on the back of the head, his car doesn't get run off the road by another car, and the police don't rush in at the end to arrest everybody. In fact, none of those clichés have been used in ANY of the first four episodes this season, which for this show is pretty impressive since they had been used heavily in previous seasons. It's very evident that the writers and producers have made a concerted effort this season to reduce the number of clichés. Joe does, however, get shot at in this episode, but of course, none of the bullets hit him, which is why I'm giving this episode a 9 instead of a 10. But other than that, this is a fine episode.
