Will The Real Fugitive, Please Stand Up?!

Ok, so why I am dating back to all the shows I watched as a kid, maybe just a bit of Nostalgia is the crisp morning air in October, who knows! I am loving this going back in time, rehashing my childhood. Get used to it, if you are reading my blogs, I love my childhood.

The Fugivitve was played David Janssen as Dr. Richard Kimble, a doctor from the fictional town of Stafford, Indiana, who is falsely convicted of his wife's murder and given the death penalty. En route to death row, Kimble's train derails and crashes, allowing him to escape and begin a cross-country search for the real killer, a "one-armed man".

I remember the opening part......

Name: Richard Kimble. Profession: Doctor of Medicine. Destination: Death Row, state prison. Richard Kimble has been tried and convicted for the murder of his wife. But laws are made by men, carried out by men. And men are imperfect. Richard Kimble is innocent. Proved guilty, what Richard Kimble could not prove was that moments before discovering his wife's body, he encountered a man running from the vicinity of his home. A man with one arm. A man he had never seen before. A man who has not yet been found. Richard Kimble ponders his fate as he looks at the world for the last time. And sees only darkness. But in that darkness, fate moves its huge hand.

This show was another one that was ahead of it's time, in my opinion. I was on the edge of my seat every single episode. I have even set through watching them from time to time when nothing else was on, go just to dip back in a simplier time. Indulge in this series, if you can!
