Good One

This episode I can watch repeatedly without tiring of it. Mainly because of the excellent performances of the main characters, but most of all Chris Robinson as the homicidal dunderhead Miles. Love the scene where he get's jealous of Kimble pretending to seduce the female hostage, and then pantomimes shooting a poor little kid. This after he kisses the windshield twice. This episode also showed that Kimble didn't have to always play the persecuted righteous loner. Another difference in this episode is at the beginning where we see the fugitive not immediately freaking out when he see's policemen, and actually smiles and waves at two who are approaching in a squad car.
