In this final batch of 15 color episodes, fugitive Richard Kimble is kept busy, as he continues to elude the law as well as trying to catch up to the one-armed man.
The original 1967 music seems to be totally intact and in place for these last fifteen "Fugitive" shows. And that news deserves a big "hooray".
Some of my favorite episodes in this collection include "The Ivy Maze", "Concrete Evidence", "The Breaking Of The Habit", and "The One That Got Away".
Of course, the top highlight of this DVD set is the famous two-part final episode, "The Judgment". Part 2 of the series finale became the highest-rated and most-watched single television program in the history of the medium when it first aired in the United States on Tuesday, August 29, 1967.
In other countries, however, the finale didn't air until September or October. And even in some parts of the USA, the last episode wasn't shown until September 5, 1967. Hence, a different version of William Conrad's closing narration can be found on some prints of "The Judgment Part 2". This DVD set includes the "September 5th" version of Conrad's narration.
Part 2 of the finale was seen by an amazing 72% of the viewing audience in the United States, with ABC estimating that 26 million U.S. homes tuned in to watch the last episode. Those figures are still, to this day, some of the highest ratings ever garnered for a television broadcast.Read more ›
The shows' creator and producers and directors were geniuses to match the wonderful talents of David Janssen, Barry Morse, and Bill Raisch together to play the characters that made this show a success. Each actor gives you the feeling that they really are the character that they are portraying in this series. IMO this season comprised some of the best of The Fugitive story line. You see more of the One Arm Man and have a guest return and reprise their role from a season one episode in "The Breaking of the Habit". Of course we can't forget the booming voice of the narrator, William Conrad. His narrations on each and every episode gave The Fugitive an extra special quality. An extra zing to the show that made it complete.
This seasons release mirrors the first season release from CBS/Paramount in regards to the music. All of the back ground music is present from what I have seen. I don't know if all of the juke box and radio music is the same but I know in the episode "A Clean and Quiet Town" the juke box music is the same and was not changed nor did I pick up on any music change in "The Judgment Part 1 and 2". The only thing I hate about this release is they used the alternate ending date at end of the Epilogs closing narration. Thankfully in the upcoming box set release, CBS/Paramount has included both versions of the closing narration and, from what I have read so far, have restored pretty much all of the original cues to the season 2 and 3 DVDs that were removed.Read more ›
