Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble hop aboard a moving train] For each of us there is an occasional moment of fantasy, a search for a straw man of our own. But Richard Kimble can only hope that the memory of a face caught once in the glare of headlights is made of something other than straw.

The first of two episodes in a row about mentally imbalanced people.
18 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

In this episode, Richard Kimble works for a trucking company. Unfortunately for him and others there, the owner's sister is a mess. At first, you just think she's into thrills and excitement but later you realize that she is seriously imbalanced. The problem is that her brother doesn't even come close to understanding the degree to which she's lost her mind and she has a strange fixation on a little boy (Clint Howard) which results in her kidnapping him! Can they get to the child on time and will he be alright?

This episode is enjoyable but also strange and a bit confusing. It's clearly a rather weak installment but is worth seeing.
