Despite the fact we didn't get any Mannix releases in 2010, the show is moving along nicely since that time.

Here's the box art for S6, due January 24. Sure, the hair is bigger, the face a little puffier, but Mike Connors IS Mannix!

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

Sarcastic, ain't I? big grin

That model looked great! My dad used to build WWII model planes as a kid and was quite good at it.

Funny thing about seeing other hobbies is one tends to think "Boy, they're ridiculously into this stuff!" And then I remember the kind of things that go on at this board, which makes me eat those words.

No, I won't be buying the DVD's any time soon, but never say there's no love for "The sportjacketed one" himself Joe Mannix around here. wink


Try and imagine your childhood without him...You see? You can't! big grin

Did anybody on one of these Mannix fan sites ever calculate how many times Mannix was knocked out or how many times he damaged those wonderful cars during the entire series run? big grin

Mannix always recovered from those beatings he took quite well. He had Jim Rockford beat by a mile.


There was a second season episode where Mannix was awakened by some noise in his office--remember he lived above it in that apartment upstairs--and ol' Joe was punched, sapped, and shot--in his pajamas no less-- and all before the classic Schifrin theme kicked in.


Now you went and did it Phelps.. I want to buy the DVD's now.


Funny you mention those; I ordered season six this very day. cool

Mannix never once during an episode bothered to ask his secretary Peggy for the doctors bills from all those various head traumas he suffered, or those other pesky bills he must have gotten from the body shop to patch up his dented and twisted cars just in time for the next episode!

That stuff just magically got taken care of. wink


I just think ol' Joe was a fast healer, entrepreneur that he was.


Yes, I remember the Mannix apartment pretty well. The stairs going up from the office and all that.

It kinda looked like he lived upstairs above a Mexican restaurant from the looks of the interior of the first floor of the place.


In the '70s, there was a McDonald's nearby in my neighborhood that had that look, so whenever I see 17 Paseo Verde, I think of the "Mickey D's" on Oakland Park Blvd and Rock Island Road, right next to "Verdi's" Italian restaurant (still extant). The McDonald's was gone by 1980...a bank took the place over.

Anyway, funny how it all connects...big grin

The sixth season of Mannix was released yesterday and it is the first season to have a new opening; the "black silhouette on blue background."

The last remark has Mike venturing into Shatner territory a bit there. "Get a life, get a new show forget about Mannix". big grin

Guess I won't be seeing him at a convention.

Probably not, but I'm sure he'd scratch out a quick autograph for you if you let him "play through" at Pebble Beach golf course.

A review of Mannix: the Sixth Season:

"Search for a Whisper", from the show's sixth season. The sheer immensity of seeing Mike Connors and The William Shatner on the same screen is almost too much to absorb.

The plot is nearly a line-for-line a rehash of the first-season episode, "Skid Marks on a Dry Run." The original is MUCH better.

He appeared at a Hollywood Collector Show in 2011 and, obviously, the jet black hair was a dye job. He's finally let it go grey.

When watching Mannix, several questions come to mind.

Who was Joe Mannix's insurance provider? Who would want to lease a storefront located near Paseo Verde? Who are the insurance providers for those businesses? How could Joe's skull withstand a concussion-inducing blow every week? How many times does Mannix get sent to the hospital?
