Mannix Comes to DVD

A Writer's Life

From cousin Lee Goldberg's blog comes the welcome news that "Mannix" is coming to DVD. "Mannix" is one of those shows I'd occasionally watch when I was a tyke in the early '70's. I didn't realize then that it was an unrepentant, politically-incorrect hardboiled PI show, loaded with unalloyed violence and innuendo. I just thought it was an entertaining hour of television with a likable lug of a hero, and some fun car chases. When I saw some episodes on TV Land in the '90's, I was struck by what a two-fisted show it really was (and by the cheap production quality, but that's something most '70's shows shared).
