Surprisingly original considering it came in season 7.

Another reviewer, pkfloydmh, has been watching and reviewing "Mannix" episodes and I've noticed that for the past few episodes, we don't agree in the least. This does mean if you read the reviews you'll get differing opinions and that should help you at least a bit! They apparently really, really hated "The Gang's All Here" and, once again, I am not at all in agreement! Neither one of us intends to disagree so much...it just seems to happen that way!

When the show begins, Joe is trying to apprehend some murderous thug. Not surprisingly, Joe gets slapped around in the process and eventually after a chase, Mannix shoots the baddie. A local gang of hoodlums see this. On one hand, they are impressed...Joe is certainly a tough guy. But, on the other, the leader of gang is the brother of the man Joe just shot! Not surprisingly, they decide to kidnap Joe and kill him. But instead of just shooting him (they NEVER seem to do this in this program!), they plan on killing him in front of another gang to show they just how tough they are. Too bad their new gang initiate is a bit of a wimp and Joe manages to run away and is shot while fleeing. For the rest of the episode, the punks scour the neighborhood looking to finish the job.

My only real complain about this episode is that the 'hoodlums' look like 1970s TV hoods...very clean-cut and looking about as menacing as members of "The Partridge Family"! Still, despite this, there is a lot of action and the writer managed to keep it interesting throughout. Even the somewhat weak side story about the wimpy kid's father isn't bad. Well worth seeing.
