The Fugitive

One of the many blessings of the new tv channel we are receiving is the broadcast of classic show, The Fugitive.  I found the entire series on Amazon for $40 and I splurged and bought it (not a good thing to do this time of year). It is just wonderful! The show ran from 1963-67, and for 120 episodes, the falsely accused- and convicted Dr. David Kimball is forced to flee from scenario to scenario to elude the obsessed Lt. Gerrard. David Kimball seeks the one man who can exonerate him--the killer himself--the "one-armed man" whom David saw fleeing the scene on the night of his wife's murder.
The show is sometimes hard to watch because every bad thing that can happen to someone happens to him--except his capture. Throughout all of his trials, he manages to do the right thing; even on the run, he helps everyone he can along the way. You can't help but fall in love with this character.
I think there are some episodes available on You Tube if you don't get the new TV Channel --the channel is "H and I"--Heroes and Icons. The shows they run are fabulous.
