1/21/64: "Come Watch Me Die"
12 April 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

This is a one of those delicious situations the writers have set up for Kimble to get trapped in. It kind of combines "In Cold Blood", (the book wasn't published until 1966 but the murders had taken place in 1959), with "3:10 to Yuma", (the original movie had come out in 1957). Kimble is working as a farm hand in Nebraska when a guy named Bellows is seen running from a house. Inside a man and woman have been murdered. Kimble is pressed into service to drive Bellows to the county seat, along with a drunken deputy and members of the posse that caught him, one of whom is (red alert!) Bruce Dern, the couple's son who, when joining in the drinking, decides he wants Bellow lynched. Kimble escapes with Bellows, who seems like a nice guy. But he still intends to deliver him to the sheriff, even at risk of his own life. One of the really good episodes of this classic series.
