Kimble is saved by an evil biker gang...or at least a semi-evil one.
18 May 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

During the run of "The Fugitive", Bruce Dern appeared five times as five different characters. Well, they weren't exactly different-- every one of them turned out to be real jerks! So, when I saw him in this episode I pretty much figured he was a guy up to no good...which is exactly the case. The police are chasing Richard Kimble but despite their best efforts, he is rescued by two bikers (Dern and Lou Antonio) and a biker girl (Diana Hyland). They are NOT doing this out of any desire to help...they are up to no good. But how can they use Kimble to their own ends?

Compared to the biker films of the late 60s and early 70s, the biker punks in this one seem amazingly tame....and hardly a long-haired freak among them. Not quite 'The Mild Ones'...but certainly not the type folks you see in "Satan's Sadists" or "Werewolves on Wheels" or "C.C. and Company". However, Hutch (Dern) is a bit wacky and menacing...even if the rest of his gang doesn't seem all that gang- like.

So is this any good? Well, if you love Bruce Dern, you'll be in for a treat as he is much more of a villain and bigger presence in this than previous shows in the series. However, nearly everyone in the show is in their 30s and too clean-cut to be a credible biker gang. Nevertheless, it IS "The Fugitive"...and even for a slightly below average episode, it's still darn watchable.
