Not fun and games for our favorite fugitive
20 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Richard Kimble, working as a chauffeur for a wealthy family, and Danny the pool boy are the only two likable characters on this show. The daughter, Joanie, wants to elope with Danny. Frankly, I don't understand what Danny sees in her. She's the stereotypical snobby rich girl, kind of haughty and demanding. The scenes between Kimble and Danny are great though. Danny's a senior in college studying pre-med. David Janssen's presence in one scene with Danny and Joanie speaks volumes about his acting abilities. When Joanie attempts one of her put-downs, he conveys his point effectively with just the slightest head movement and the expression in his eyes. It's no more than a look – very subtle. David Janssen was a master at this. It's unbelievable that he didn't win an Emmy during this second season of The Fugitive.

The scenes with David Janssen and Mark Goddard save this episode. They are very, very good in their scenes together. Kimble is the mature adult offering words of wisdom to Danny the college kid about his future. Later this year, 1965, Mark Goddard will start his star-making role on Lost in Space. (50 years ago!)

The girl dancing atop a table at the party in this episode is played by Carol Connors, a songwriter who 12 years later would be Oscar-nominated for the Rocky theme song. Carol and David Janssen would become a couple around the time that Rocky came out in 1976-1977.
