    5.0
    Private Eye Albie Luce, who during the second season was after Mannix to partner up with him, makes his first appearance in four years. Apparently Joe Mantell, who played Luce during the second season, was unavailable because in this episode he is played by Milton Selzer.



    In this episode he tries to prove his worth to Mannix by bugging his car. Mannix fins the bug and disconnects it. When the bad guys force Mannix to drive them back to Langer's house he uses the connection to type out an S.O.S. to Albie and Peggy back in the office.



    This episode is remake of a first season episode titled "Skid Marks On a Dry Run." During the first season Mannix worked for Intertect. In the earlier episode it was Lew Wickersham, the head of Intertect, who bugged Mannix's car as a way to keep better tabs on him. Albie's sudden return and his actions in the latter episode don't make much sense other than to act as a surrogate for Inertect in the plot.moreless
