Storyline

Dr. Richard Kimble is framed for his wife's murder by a mysterious one-armed man. During sentencing Kimble escapes intending to catch the one-armed man and find out why he was framed. Following in hot pursuit is Inspector Philip Gerard, who is intending to bring in Kimble alive. But Gerard and the one-armed man are not the only thing Kimble has to worry about. The father of his late wife has hired bounty hunters who are willing to break the law to catch him, and in the age of internet tracking and high-tech surveillance, it's not as easy to hide as it used to be.

User Reviews

a very worthy sequel
5 September 2011 | by bobbynearSee all my reviews

I too was very skeptical when a series that had an ending was brought back. It seemed unwise at the time, but good acting and interesting new twists on an old theme made it work. It is very unfortunate that CBS had no faith or patience with it. It might have run at least as long as the original had it been given a chance.

Many of us do remember it. In fact, there is a Yahoo group that I own and moderate dealing with both series that has been around for years and recently has gotten renewed interest. We reviewed all of the original stories from the first series and would be interested in having people review the 2000 version. We also have two members who extended the series by writing fan fiction...and extending the story.
