Mannix: Season 3 Arrives On October 27.

If you have followed this blog for any length of time, you already know that Mannix, starring Mike Connors, is my favorite detective show of all time. Season two was released way back in January, and I am guessing that sales were good enough that they are now releasing the third season. Both of the earlier seasons had excellent video and audio remastered episode transfers, so hopefully this release will continue in the same manner.

Mannix ran from 1967 through 1975 on CBS. It was created by Richard Levinson and William Link and developed by executive producer Bruce Geller. Geller also created the ultimate secret spy show known as Mission Impossible. In fact, if you watch some of the early seasons of both shows, you will see many of the same backlot locations utilized for both films.

By the time Season 3 premiered in September 1969, Mannix was already well established as a huge ratings grabber, and producers responded with an impressive season of great stories, along with a lot of the hard-hitting action that it was known for. Season 2 had introduced Gail Fisher as Mannix's devoted secretary, Peggy Fair, and she remained throughout the rest of the series.

The episodes in season three are:

Eagles Sometimes Can't Fly
Color Her Missing
Return to Summer Grove
The Playground
A Question of Midnight
A Penny for the Peep-Show
A Sleep in the Deep
Memory: Zero
The Nowhere Victim
The Sound of Darkness
Who Killed Me?
Missing: Sun and Sky
Tooth of the Serpent
Medal for a Hero
Walk With a Dead Man
A Chance at the Roses
Blind Mirror
Harlequin's Gold
Who is Sylvia?
Only One Death to a Customer
Fly, Little One
The Search for Darrell Andrews
Murder Revisited
War of Nerves
Once Upon a Saturday
