There's a great need for some doctorin'.

While Richard Kimble has taken many, many jobs over the four seasons of "The Fugitive", I was surprised by this episode because he obtained a job working the fields with migrant workers. He didn't exactly fit in here like he did with most of his other jobs and identities. And, it turns out I am not the only one who thinks this way as the migrant workers don't feel he belongs here and they treat him like dirt. Eventually you find out it's because they assume he's actually working for the police or Immigration and Naturalization Service looking to catch illegal aliens!

Things take an interesting twist when a huge fire breaks out nearby. The field workers are encouraged to volunteer to fight the inferno and Kimble, being a real do-gooder, volunteers. This is when he learns the reason the other workers didn't like him, as one of the illegals confides in him all their concerns. This man also has a HUGE concern...his wife is REALLLLY pregnant and it's not going well. Little do all the folks know that this hated man is a doctor...and obstetrician! But how can Kimble help without compromising his identity?!

This is a decent but generally unremarkable episode. Apart from taking a pro-illegal slant, which was unusual for the 1960s, the show is an average and enjoyable installment.
