Strange but watchable.
29 March 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When this episode begins, a nosy sheriff (Carroll O'Connor) meets Richard Kimble and Kimble's face is familiar...so familiar that the sheriff thinks he recognizes him from a wanted poster. But before he can take Kimble in, Steve (Ed Nelson) helps Kimble escape and the two are on the run. But why would Kimble's co-worker risk his life to aid a fugitive? And, why would Steve take a bullet for a guy he hardly knows? What follows is a weird and difficult to believe psychological portrait of a man who down deep wants to be punished...but for what? And how will Kimble get away from this super-strange man?

I found this one to be less satisfying than most episodes of "The Fugitive"...mostly because the plot was less believable than usual. It just didn't make a lot of sense and left me cold compared to most of the shows in this otherwise well made series.
