I still haven't gotten through more than a third of Season 2 at this point in terms of viewing (so I haven't picked up S3 yet). I think my problem as a relative newcomer to the show (I only caught a few episodes on TV Land) is that after going through S1, I got too acclimated to the original format that I needed to put some distance from the show so I could then get used to watching the final "Mannix alone" format (I still think they dropped the ball in not having Joe Campanella come back even once).

Just watched "The Playground" and Mitch Cantrell was quite a nice guy! wink Interesting, artsy direction from Paul Krasny and a solid score from Fred Steiner.

It's always a pleasure to see Leslie Parrish outside of Star Trek. smile

In looking back over this thread I see that only Banacek, Paddon, that Steve Ihnat fan, and I have been the only contributors to this topic. A show that ran eight years with great incidental music and no one posts...

...So feel free to insult anyone on the board you don't like---they'll never see it! wink




There used to be another person who likes it: Sir T.

I never got into the season 1's concept and I found season 1 rather boring apart from a selection of episodes.
I don't know if it is due to the film-making, the stories or the studio set look.
I was so disappointing by season 1 that I almost wished to cease watching the rest of the seasons.
Season 2 got me hooked.

FYI; Culp and Cosby wore Persol sunglasses in "I Spy."

I'd love to track down the exact makes they wore (apparently these specific ones are still being manufactured.) They have a timeless 1960s-retro feel.

FYI, I know that only Culp wore that specific Persol sunglasses in "I Spy".

"The Sound of Darkness" could've been another in a long, worn-out concept of Our Hero Blind for a Day, but the absolutely wonderful character dynamic between Mannix, Peggy--I love her--and Robert Reed's Adam Tobias is given much to work with here. The affection that these characters have for one another comes through here and is quite touching.

Jerry Fielding's score is sometimes over-the-top during the rehabilitation scenes, but he's spot-on with the action sequences. The car chase where Joe is pretending to drive is Jerry at his best. I hear echoes of "The Wild Bunch" and "Alfredo Garcia" but served in a "Theme from Mannix" sauce! wink

MANNIX!

Mannix Season Four News:

Mannix, starring Mike Connors, ran for 8 seasons on the CBS network in the late '60s/early '70s. In 2008 and 2009, CBS DVD and Paramount Home Entertainment released the first three season sets on DVD, and fans have been wondering if the studio would continue with these releases any further. Earlier this week, a question was asked at the CBS Home Entertainment fan page on Facebook, about this very subject, and after a general answer the same day, yesterday the studio updated him and gave a very specific answer which included the street date!
Ted Linhart - Any news on Mannix season 4 release timing?


CBS Home Entertainment - Ted, CBS is currently working on the 2011 release schedule over the next few months. We don't currently know what shows will be on the schedule as of yet. Thanks for posting and stay tuned


Ted. new information, Mannix S4 is scheduled to release 1/4/2011
The studio hasn't formally announced that to retailers or press yet, so it could be subject to possible change. But right now January 4th is their planned street date for Mannix - The 4th Season on DVD. Make your plans accordingly! Our thanks and congrats to Ted for getting the goods on this one...stay tuned for updates.

Probably his last work for television.

I'm glad that CBS/Paramount hasn't given up on ol' Joe because the show was just starting to get interesting! Season two is my favorite so far, with some outstanding scores, great guest stars--this era of TV always did--and that wonderful rapport between Mike Connors and Gail Fisher.

I'm looking forward to Joe's louder jackets, increasingly puffy hair, and the onset of the 1970s.

Mannix!

"The popular, long-running detective drama returns to DVD! MANNIX, the show about a tough and cynical private investigator, stars Golden Globe winner Mike Connors as the title character. Mannix is a hard-boiled and gritty detective who constantly defies rules and regulations and is able to take all the fist fights, high-speed car chases and bullet wounds that come his way in stride. Collectible 6 disc-set includes all 30 action-packed fifth season episodes."

They're jammin' 'em in there, Peggy!

Mannix doesn't need a lawyer! He *is* the law! (to be honest, Mannix often stayed out of court, thank goodness) wink

(we should be getting word on S11 of Hawaii Five-O as well; hope they don't botch the job. mad

One of the great things about the FSM board is its love for Mannix.

Mike "Touch" Connors at the Sinatra Golf Tournament, 1996. Love the sunglasses and his last remark...
