  • Mannix is a Greek

    6.5
    I was 9 when this episode initially played - so I come at it with very little nostalgia. I started Season 3 with this one because it rates highest here on the first disc. Does it hold up these many years later?



    A man in an iron lung, Vera Miles (Psycho) making a co-starring turn, ethnic-Greek characters (Mannix's father), a mad driving scene around CA seaside curves that results in an off-the-cliff crash with Mannix & Marion Ross (pre-Happy Days) into the hospital...



    I began my exploration with a later season, so - nice to see Mike Conners a little younger (so, not showing the jet-black hair color & makeup quite so obviously). Nice, too, to see the character of Mannix grounded in his Greek ethnicity. In this episode we learn that his father had wanted him to work for his vinery in Summer Groves. I can't say that this episode ended all that emphatically but I did stay with it so that is a good thing.
