Being where the action is, isn't a treat for Kimble, when he's ensnared between a wild daughter and her Reno casino-owner father. The fugitive's trying to lay low as a lifeguard, but sexy Chris' luring boys with free martinis causes a child to almost drown. That drags Kimble into a quick buy-off, to protect the senior Polichek from a threatened lawsuit. The father suspects Kimble is trysting by the pool with the much younger, flirty Chris, which could lead to louder hush money, which neither the casino nor the convicted killer want.

1/28/64 "Where the Action Is"
13 April 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

In 1969, a post-Fugitive David Janssen played the owner of a Las Vegas Hotel in a film called "Where It's At". In that he was dealing with a reluctant son he wants to inherit the family business. Five years before, as Richard Kimble, he encounters Telly Savalas, the owner of a Reno Hotel, trying to deal with his playgirl daughter in an episode entitled "Where the Action Is". Kimble is working as a lifeguard who at first has a run-in with the daughter, who then flirts with him just because Daddy doesn't like it. Kimble has to figure out the real problem between father and daughter to get out of it.

Kimble winds up boarding a plane to leave Reno, the only time in the series he uses that most confining means of conveyance.
