More of Kimble's backstory is revealed. In the powerful "Taps for a Dead War," we learn that he served in Korea, where his life was saved by a now-embittered vet whose face was horribly scarred in the process. The Fugitive gets some extra mileage out of a stellar roster of guest stars, including Warren Oates as the hapless stick-up man in "Rat in a Corner," Carroll O'Connor as a bullying sheriff in "Flight from the Final Demon," Telly Savalas as the hotel owner in "Where the Action Is," Pat Hingle as a sympathetic columnist in "Search in a Windy City," and most memorable, John McGiver and John "Tigger" Fiedler in "The End Game" as bickering, bantering housemates on opposite sides of the Kimble guilty-or-innocent question. The Fugitive's noir sensibility evokes dread and menace even in the most bucolic of settings. And everywhere he goes, Kimble wins hearts and minds against the police sworn to bring him in. As a surfer tells Gerard in "The End Game," "You know, after meeting you, I hope he makes it." --Donald Liebenson

Charged with murdering his wife, a crime he did not commit, Dr. Richard Kimble, played by David Janssen, escapes from the law when the train taking him to his execution wrecks. Tracked doggedly by police inspector Gerard, Kimble wanders across the country running from the law while trying to track down the one-armed man he saw leaving his house the night his wife was murdered. As he wanders the country, he helps many people with their problems, all the while trying to find the one armed man and trying to avoid Gerard.
This classic show had all the goods - great acting by Janssen, Morse, and the many guest stars, fantastic narration by William Conrad, clever, well-written scripts, and taut direction. This show had it all, and made Dr. Richard Kimble one of the most famous and sympathetic characters television history. We can be glad that it has finally made it to DVD.

This series is so good that it's worth whatever CBS/Paramount wants to charge. Their mastering of the first half-season was pretty good, and I'd expect the same here.

To all the readers of the reviews (for both volumes):
1. Notice how many 5 star reviews have been given for this TV series.
2. Notice how many great actors starred in this series.
3. Notice how many times people write "the best TV series ever".
4. Notice how many encourage young viewers to see this series.
5. Notice how many write that they can't wait until the rest of the series is released (Paramount take note).
Doesn't this tell you something?? It should. All these reviews cannot be wrong. It's true... this IS one of the best (if not THE best) TV drama ever... period! Do yourself a favor and buy this series. I assure you - you will not be disappointed.
Paramount, please note - KEEP THE VOLUME SETS COMING UNTIL YOU HAVE RELEASED ALL OF THE EPISODES... PLEASE! This is one fan that will buy all 8 of the box sets (120 episodes). PS - maybe throw in some special features. How about a bio on David Janssen or maybe check in with Barry Morse and see what he is doing these days. It would be great to have him do some commentary on some episodes. Maybe on the last episode - "Judgement Day". Just a thought!
