Glad you're enjoying Mannix, Ben. I'm nearing the end of the series with my viewing. I only have five episodes left. Bill Bixby starts to direct at the end of the run. He even appears in "The Empty Tower". A story with several similarities to Die Hard. I'll say this much about the show as a whole since I'm almost done, it's one of the most consistent shows I've every seen that ran for 8 seasons. The years 2 thru 8 are only distinguishable by Connors' sideburns and the car he drives. I like the Camero in Season 8. Kind of a Rockford vibe.
