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

During the 1972 to 1973 season, Mannix's car (a 1973 Plymouth Barracuda convertible) was actually three 1971 models updated (by changing the grill, headlights, hood, and taillights panel) to look like a 1973 Barracuda, as Plymouth no longer made the Barracuda as a convertible, and driving a convertible had been a Mannix trademark since the show began. Mannix began to drive the Challenger, which also went out of production. 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 »
If you watch an episode of Mannix,you will want to watch the show daily.Now,the early 1968 episodes are definitely the best (particularly episode #13,A View of Nowhere)and you should try to catch these first.The 1970-1971 seasons are pretty bad.The last few episodes of '73 are action packed.If you love cop shows, take my advice and watch this one.
