Synopsis


Through a bizaree a twist of fate--namely, a spectacular train wreck--Dr. Richard Kimble (David Janssen, wrongly condemned to death for the murder of his wife, is able to escape his captor, Lt. Philip Gerard (Barry Morse), and to embark upon a nationwide odyssey in search of the One-Armed Man who was the actual killer of the unfortunate Mrs. Kimble. Though this scenario does not constitute the action in the debut episode of The Fugitive's first season, the series' premise would be firmly established in the pre-credits "teaser" that ran at the beginning of each and every Season One episode, accompanied by the stentorian narration of William Conrad. As in subsequent seasons, the first 32 Fugitive episodes find Dr. Kimble taking on a variety of odd jobs and assuming a number of false identities as he travels from town to town, hoping to either catch up with the One-Armed Man or otherwise prove his innocence. Also in each episode, Kimble's trail is dogged by the tireless Lt. Gerard, who has made it his mission in life to recapture the fugitive and deliver him to "Death Row, State Prison." The premiere episode "Fear in a Desert City" finds Kimble, six months after his escape, travelling under the name of Fred Lincoln in Tucson, Arizona (Ironically, Tucson would serve as the locale for The Fugitive's legendary two-part series finale in August of 1967). Vera Miles and Brian Keith are the first of the series' multitude of guest stars, playing local citizens whose lives would be inexorably altered by Kimble's presence. In the weeks to come, Kimble would pop up in Missouri, West Virginia, California, New Mexico, Nevada, Washington, Alaska, Kentucky, Utah, Connecticut, Nebraska, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana (Kimble's home state). Among the guest performers appearing during Season One are Sandy Dennis, Robert Duvall, Ruby Dee, Geraldine Brooks, Jack Weston, Leslie Nielsen, Jack Klugman, Bruce Dern, Telly Savalas, Eileen Heckart, Carroll O'Connor, Lee Grant and Gloria Grahame. In the episode "Home is the Hunted", Jacqueline Scott makes her first appearance as Kimble's married sister Donna Taft, who has always believed in his innocence and with whom he will sporadically remain in contact throughout the remained of the series. And in the two-parter "Never Say Goodbye", Kimble rescues Lt. Gerard from death, a selfless gesture that will occur time and again in the future--but which will not prevent the relentless Gerard from pursuing his former prisoner. ~ Hal Erickson

    The best show ever develpoed for tv.

    This is absolutely the best show ever developed for television, David Jansen has got to be the best actor in the history of television. He plays the part of the fugitive so well, that you actually have to catch yourself because he makes it look so real & you actually believe it's actually happening for real. I will get every season, as soon as they are available.

    The Fugitive is a great show from the past that I always wonder why they never re-run it. Their are a lot of great sceens and actors that make the show great. The old sceens brings up the days that I grew up in when I was young. I did not fully understood TV in those days but I remember a little bit about watching this one and wanted it to come out on DVD. You cannot go wrong with this one. The price is high but I still bought it.

    A "Must Buy"

    Great quality with sound and picture considering this TV show was aired in the mid 60's. ..........The "Fugitive" TV series is one of the best produced shows to date. With 4 plus seasons, the overall plot is so much better developed than the movie. David Janssen (Richard Kimble) actually decided to quit the series since the filming was so demanding and intense - thus bringing the series to conclusion. Buy it and enjoy.
