This Episode was written in my honor
30 August 2007 | by (Orange County, CA) – See all my reviews

My late father, Daniel B. Ullman, wrote the story and screenplay of this episode. At the time, I was 13 years old and "did not play well with the other kids." My birth sign is "Moon Child" (AKA: Cancer). The child depicted in this show doesn't fit in with the other kids, either. He is sensitive, introverted and intelligent. I will claim the first two and be grateful for any favorable comparison to the third.

My late parents were souls of patience with me and my ways then and I owe my lack of a criminal record to that. This Fugitive episode was my Dad's way of honoring me and making a case for many other kids like myself who could make it in life with the proper care and nurturing. My dad's caring attitude toward his children is reflected in many of his works, including a "Bonanza" episode entitled "The Unwritten Commandment" (Honor Thy Son).

Although it's difficult for me to be objective about this episode, I hope others may gain something from watching it.
