 It's dated, of course, and the stories are pretty much standard P.I.
 fare, but there's something about how everything ties together, making
 it better than just the mere sum of its parts, that makes for
 enjoyable (if not always essential) viewing. This is probably ground
 zero for the TV eye genre -- the pure hard essence of it. Other show
 may rise far above it or sink far below, but you can deny MANNIX its
 absolute pureness. And has there ever been a male on TV so alpha as
 Joe Mannix?

And the soundtrack, ( Composed by Lalo Schifrin)


holds up well too.
