Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble, suitcase in hand, approaching a baseball field with a coach teaching fundamentals to several young boys] For every acquaintance he makes, a man reveals a different face, a different identity. For the people of this midwestern city, this man is John Evans, itinerant laborer. To those who know him better, he is Dr. Richard Kimble, convicted murderer.

Kimble plays baseball
14 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

This episode opens with Dr. Kimble walking through a playground/park near some boys practicing baseball. He clearly enjoys the atmosphere. He looks around and smiles broadly. Normally, you can feel Kimble's fear and awareness of his surroundings, always looking over his shoulder. But for five minutes at the beginning of this episode, he's relaxed and almost happy, talking to Carole about a custodian job. Until he finds out that her husband Tony (actor William Shatner) is an ex-policeman who hopes to return to working as a cop again soon.

Actress Julie Sommars plays Carole as a really nice lady who runs a boys' baseball club. She rides a bicycle back and forth from her home to the park. Kimble ends up at baseball practice when Tony fails to show up. We see him hitting pop ups and ground balls to the kids. However, only one day on the job and he ends up in the middle of a spree of killings. Three policemen have been murdered.

This episode presents two classic noir characters: Tony, who has committed sin and is immersed in guilt, and Dr. Kimble, an innocent man wrongly accused. Yet only one delivers, because when the drama kicks up, Shatner can't help but overact, which is tough to watch. David Janssen, meanwhile, is brilliant as always.
