Finally, Dr. Kimble Runs Toward Our DVD Player

"At long last, the groundbreaking television series, "The Fugitive" comes to DVD. This show, which lasted from 1963-1967, was suspenseful, moving, engaging, and original. This was the first successful television show that took the dramatic formula of putting the hero with new characters and in new situations every week to another level. In previous shows such as Cheyenne, Maverick, and many others, the hero was a wanderer going from town to town to earn a living. In this show, the hero had no choice. He had to run to stay out of jail.
Charged with murdering his wife, a crime he did not commit, Dr. Richard Kimble, played by David Janssen, escapes from the law when the train taking him to his execution wrecks. Tracked doggedly by police inspector Gerard, Kimble wanders across the country running from the law while trying to track down the one-armed man he saw leaving his house the night his wife was murdered. As he wanders the country, he helps many people with their problems, all the while trying to find the one armed man and trying to avoid Gerard.
This classic show had all the goods - great acting by Janssen, Morse, and the many guest stars, fantastic narration by William Conrad, clever, well-written scripts, and taut direction. This show had it all, and made Dr. Richard Kimble one of the most famous and sympathetic characters television history. We can be glad that it has finally made it to DVD.
Worth whatever they want to charge for it!

"This is the second half of Season One of THE FUGITIVE, television's best drama series by more than one account. This is the continuing pursuit of the innocent Dr. Richard Kimble by the relentless Lt. Philip Gerard. The episodes that are included in this volume are:
16 The Garden House
17 Come Watch Me Die
18 Where the Action Is
19 Search in a Windy City
21 Rat in a Corner
22 Angels Travel on Lonely Roads (1)
23 Angels Travel on Lonely Roads (2)
24 Flight from the Final Demon
25 Taps for a Dead War
26 Somebody to Remember
27 Never Stop Running
28 The Homecoming
29 Storm Center
30 The End Game
This series is so good that it's worth whatever CBS/Paramount wants to charge. Their mastering of the first half-season was pretty good, and I'd expect the same here.
Bring on more of THE FUGITIVE!"

"The review by Desilu Trek "Live Long & Prosper" is right on! TV viewers today simply do not realize the dramatic depth of this classic TV show! I cannot recommend it highly enough to TV fans who love great drama! David Janssen was simply perfect for the role of Richard Kimble, and the hang-dog looks of humiliation that he can display as an M.D. on the run from blind "justice" - while constantly searching for clues to the whereabouts of the "one-armed man" whom he saw running from the scene of his wife's murder - are truly fabulous! Moreover, the guest stars on this TV show read like a "Who's Who" of 1950s-1970s television and movies - some of my favorite guest stars on The Fugitive include Leslie Neilsen, Diana Hyland (=doll), Warren Oates, Carroll O'Connor, Vera Miles (=babe), Brian Keith, Suzanne Pleshette (=doll), Pat Crowley (=babe), Sandy Dennis, Ed Nelson, Susan Oliver (=doll), Robert Duvall, Angie Dickinson (=babe), Beverly Garland, Alejandro Rey, Brenda Vaccaro (=doll), Murray Matheson, Telly Savalas, Jack Weston, Ed Binns, Diana Van der Vlis (=babe), Brenda Scott (=doll), Jack Klugman, James Best, Buck Taylor, Diane Brewster (=babe), Pamela Tiffin (=doll), Andrew Prine, Jacqueline Scott (=doll), Robert Keith (Brian's father), Robert Webber, Pippa Scott (=babe), John Anderson, Joanna Frank (=doll), Pat Hingle, Nancy Malone (=babe), Eileen Heckart, Albert Salmi, Lee Grant, Gilbert Roland, Madlyn Rhue, Claude Akins, Joanna Moore (=babe), Shirley Knight (=babe), Richard Carlson, Gloria Graham, Bethel Leslie (=babe), John Fiedler, John McGiver, Joseph Campanella - the list goes on & on - and every guest star listed above except Suzanne P. and Brenda Scott appear in the FIRST SEASON ALONE!
SERIOUSLY, FOLKS, GET THIS TV SERIES!!"
