The Fugitive (original 1960s television series)
I assume that most of you share my opinion that the feature film version of The Fugitive is one of Harrison Ford's best non-Indy films. But as much as I enjoyed the movie when I saw it in its intial release in 1993, I never bothered to delve into the source material for the film: the original television series, which starred David Janssen. I never bothered--until the release of the first half of the series' first season on DVD last fall.
I rented the first disc on a whim and quickly became hooked. The original show, which ran from 1963 to 1967, has long been a favorite of critics and TV fans alike, and I have to agree: the depth of characterization, the suspense, and the high quality of the acting make The Fugitive one of great series in television history.
Currently, I'm watching the episodes featured in the Season One, Volume Two set. Along with premiere of that little art-house movie about the archaeologist named after a dog, I'm also eagerly anticipating the release date of The Fugitive: Season Two, Volume One in June.
Here's my question: Anybody else out there into this show? Anyone else who has watched/purchased the DVDs?
