Goofs

Kimble states that his own blood type is O- and that he can give the baby a blood transfusion. In (#3.24) he asks for a blood donor for Lt. Gerard, even though he could have donated his own blood since Gerard's blood type is type B. Kimble could have donated his own blood, for his blood type is O-, which is universally acceptable by everyone, regardless of their own blood type. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble, suitcase in hand, walking through a small community, seeking employment] A Fugitive is like a long distance runner with a difference. A Fugitive's distance is infinity. Infinity is a long, impossibly long, way away. And there must be time for the hunter to rest, to gather strength and to move on again.

Joshua gets a second chance...will he take it?
11 May 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode revolves around Joshua Simmons (Harry Townes), a self- styled religious zealot who has determined that God hates medicine. In fact, his wife died because Joshua refused to get her medical treatment. Now, his daughter Ruth (Kim Darby) has an illegitimate child and it's sick...and it appears as if Joshua would be just as happy if the child died! Naturally, Richard Kimble is horrified and does everything he can to save the child...even if the gun-toting Joshua doesn't approve. Add to this mix a disgraced ex-deputy (Tom Skerritt) and you've got a couple of guys hankering to see Kimble punished!

This is a very good episode...very compelling and worth seeing. While Harry Townes is no household name, he did a lot of TV in the 60s and was very good at his craft. Here, in a bit of a change of pace, he plays a villain...and quite well.
