Good idea done badly
4 May 2013 | by (whittier ca) – See all my reviews

I remembered this series from when I was a child and after hearing it was possible spent months scanning ebay for a DVD copy. Finally bought it and after viewing about half,,, disappointed. episode plots are weak at best, story flow between chase scenes is painfully slow, Overall writing is poor. I understand that the first season of any show is usually the fleshing out period, but its as if once the idea was created the producers didn't know what to do with it. It seems they were just trying to basically repeat the Fugitive which had ended just two years before. I can't fault Christopher George his performance was more then excellent through out but given his talent he really deserved better then this. Nice seeing his future wife in the 'Man on a punched card" episode though.
