Quotes

Narrator: [Act One Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble carrying a trash can and depositing it in the rear of a building] No job for Richard Kimble is anything more than the means to the end - survival. The dignity of his profession is a memory and a hope. He can never know what unexpected shift in fate will send him running again, perhaps in pursuit of the one-armed man, perhaps in flight for his life.

Kimble....chased down by a blind ex-cop!
15 April 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is an odd installment of "The Fugitive". As usual, Richard Kimble is hiding out from the law and this time he ducks into a home for the blind and hides out there! Folks mistakenly think he's a social worker from The Good Neighbors and he stays a few days actually helping a lot of people, as he's super-effective. He even helps a guy who is a resident who actually is NOT blind but is pretending to be!! However, despite everything going so well, an old cop who was blinded on the job (Ed Begley) starts to realize that this nice guy is, in fact, a wanted criminal and he decides to bring in Kimble all by himself...a rather crazy proposition if you think about it!

This is a very good episode...well worth seeing. It's also interesting because Richard Anderson guest stars in it...and he has a lot LESS hair then he had in the 1970s when he starred as Oscar on "The Six Million Dollar Man".
