Trivia

Years later, Sheree North had great memories of David Janssen: "Oh, The Fugitive, yeah, I did a couple of those. David Janssen was wonderful to work with. He had a terrific sense of humor that of course you couldn't ever see in the character that he played. He had a wonderful manliness but a vulnerability about that character." See more »

Times really haven't changed all that much...

This episode of "The Fugitive" weighs in on a controversial subject, naturopathy and its practitioners. Naturopathy is the believe that scientific trials mean little and modern medicine is not the way to treat people, but instead through the use of various herbs and natural items they can treat all manner of ills. Dr. Kimble comes into contact with a nice naturopath who means well...but is likely killing his patients. Dr. Josephus Adams (Arthur O'Connell) and his wife, Marianne (Sheree North) treats Kimble when he's found unconscious and Kimble is torn between being grateful for this and horrified by Josephus' use of honey to treat all manner of things. When Dr. Adams' niece, Sharon (Kim Darby), passes out, he isn't so sure if his methods are of any use...and Kimble takes her and heads to the nearest medical doctor.

It's interesting that this show is over 50 years old and the same sort of arguments today are being made by many that medicine and its double-blind studies isn't as good as naturopathy and the anecdotal evidence that supports it. Because of this, I am pretty sure a lot of folks would be offended by the show's obvious bias AGAINST naturopathy...but I think it's doing a public service. Overall, a thought-provoking and excellent episode.
