    If you'd like a treat from the early 1960's, tune in to The Fugitive TV series. The plots are surprisingly current with issues such as athletic brain injuries, illegal aliens etc.. You'll see up and coming future stars as well as stars and wonderful supporting actors/actresses from the 1930's, 40's and 50's era movies. Most impotantly you have David Janssen, a very understated actor who played his part to perfection as the man who is on the run trying to not attract attention. Sadly, he always did but the audience is all the better for it. He comes into peoples' lives for a short period and forever changes them in some small or large way. This is a worthy program and certainly holds it's own against many of the dramas of today. Expand

    Best Fugitive Retelling!

    I am a big fan of ALL THREE tellings of "The Fugitive" story. Each "Fugitive" (David Janssen, Harrison Ford and Tim Daly) had his own fabulous way of being Dr. Richard Kimble.

    When I compare the ways the story was told, I think "Fugitive 2000" told it best. It struck a perfect balance between Fugitive 1963 (the first tv series) and Fugitive 1993 (the movie).
    It focused on Kimble's personal strength of character while increasing the desperation of his dilemma as both the one pursuing and the one being pursued. The course the story took was more modern and engaging for tv viewers. Although this edition ended with the point-blank shooting of the "one-armed man," Matthew Ross's change of heart following his younger daughter Becca's chastising had already set in motion a series of events which surely would have led to Kimble's retrial and exoneration.

    It is a tragedy that this tv series for whatever reason has not yet been released on DVD. I keep hoping one day it will.

    This new Fugitive has a very good Kimble in Tim Daly.

    The key, as with all action series, is turning repetitive, predictable outcomes into suspenseful beats, and at this, the series seems to have a genuine flair. [5 Oct 2000]

    The stunts and set pieces are impressive (though the show can't keep having Kimble jump off things every time he's about to be caught), but The Fugitive will ultimately rise or fall on Daly and Williamson. [6 Oct 2000, p.10E]
