very well done
20 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

I must admit that I was skeptical about this show when I first heard about it. I loved the movie, but I felt that making The Fugitive into a television series again was a bad idea. But I decided to give it a chance anyway.

I think that the show is very well done. The action is really cool and, although the drama isn't as deep as it was in the original show, it's still very dramatic. The acting is good. I love Tim Daly as Richard Kimble. He's very good in the role. I also find the show to be very suspenseful. I've read that some people think that the show won't have any suspense just because they know that Kimble is innocent, that the one-armed man did it, that the one-armed man is always going to get away from Kimble until the final episode, that Kimble is always going to get away from Gerard, and because they already know how the story ends, but I completely disagree with all of that. As a matter of fact, I find this show more suspenseful than the original. I think that modern technology and the fact that there are now more ways to track fugitives adds a great deal of suspense. Yes, we got to see an updated version of the story when they made the movie, but a two hour movie, even if it is one of the best movies ever made, is just not the same as seeing it on a weekly basis.

I'd also like to know just what made the original show suspenseful. When people watched it, they knew that Kimble was innocent. They knew that he was always going to get away from Gerard or any other cop who was chasing him. They knew that when the one-armed man was in an episode that he was going to get away at the end of that episode, except for the last one. So what exactly made the original show suspenseful if knowing all that kills the suspense in this show? I also can not believe that people have actually made the statement that they do not want to watch this show just because they know how it ends. Just how many different ways could this story possibly have ended? Did anyone ever actually think that it might end with Kimble being caught and executed while the one-armed man remained free? Or did anyone ever actually think that it might turn out that Kimble was really guilty and he was just trying to frame the one-armed man? If anyone ever thought that the story was going to end any other way than with Kimble catching the one-armed man and proving his innocence then I'd be really curious to hear your thoughts on the matter.

I know that 37 years ago this concept was new and fresh and that certainly added something to the story. So I can understand it if people say that they don't want to watch this show simply because they would rather see something with a new story idea. But people just sound like complete idiots when they say that they don't want to watch it or that the show won't have any suspense just because they know how it ends or because they know that Kimble is innocent and that the one-armed man did it.
