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.

Over the eight seasons of the series, Mannix was knocked unconscious fifty-five times and shot seventeen times. See more »
Throughout the series, Mannix has numerous interactions with the Los Angeles Police Department. The cars represented, however, are not similar to those used by Los Angeles; for one thing, the emergency equipment is different: while sometimes the correct arrangement for the period is shown (two light units side by side with a siren speaker in between), usually the police cars have a rotary beacon on top with an electromechanical siren under the hood, which is incorrect.

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.
