Quotes

Narrator: The Fugitive, a QM Production, starring David Janssen as Dr. Richard Kimble, an innocent victim of blind justice, falsely convicted for the murder of his wife, reprieved by fate when a train wreck freed him en route to the death house; freed him to hide in lonely desperation, to change his identity, to toil at many jobs; freed him to search for a one-armed man he saw leave the scene of the crime; freed him to run before the relentless pursuit of the police lieutenant obsessed with his capture.

The show that saved televison

Simply... the greatest drama in the history of television. The prototype of many other shows (the invaders, run, buddy, run, etc...) David Jensen does a excellent job as the doctor wrongly accused of his wife's murder. Barry Morse never received the honors due him for playing the "antagonist" Lt. Gerard. For the run of the show, they managed to maintain a high quality of writers and directors. I viewed every show from 1963 to "the judgement" This showed regularly featured talented actors as guess stars before they became stars. The show also managed to handle social issues of the times but was more geared to exploring human nature in all it's facets... that's one of the things that made it so great. Even if you were not concerned about the hunt for the one armed man... the indivual stories themselves were great.
