Joe Mannix in Die Hard
16 October 2017 | by steelblue55See all my reviews

The prior episode, "A Ransom for Yesterday" was one of the best final season shows and a strong one in the whole series. That one featured Bill Bixby as director, although it seems like more of the credit might go to the writer in that case. Well in this one Bill is back both as an actor and a director, and in this one much of the credit has to go to the director, as a high amount of the show is action scenes.

This starts with Joe and Bill Bixby going fishing but Bill forgets his lures so they swing by his office in a high rise. They walk into a robbery and get locked in a vault. Soon enough Joe has broken them out of the "unbreakable" vault. Bill has a foot injury so Joe hides him and then goes to escape. Soon enough it's cat and mouse with the bad guys, chase scenes, fight scenes, guys not answering the walky talky, and more. One of Joe's early decisions with a car seems like pretty bad strategy, but all the rest of it is well paced and well filmed. The final scene on the roof is definitely not the usual fight scene, with a lot of work done via camera angles and showing you the terrain as things develop. Nice job directing by Bill and a good action episode. Makes you wonder what he could have done with a bigger building and budget... like Die Hard!
