The running began 55 years ago today

That’s when “The Fugitive”  first aired on ABC. David Janssen starred as Dr. Richard Kimble, wrongfully convicted of his wife’s murder and sentenced to receive the death penalty.

Kimble broke loose and went after the real killer, the one-armed man.

“The Fugitive” appeared on the 2002 TV Guide list of The 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time. It also was named as one of the top 100 TV shows by “Rolling Stone” magazine in 2016.

I don’t think our family missed too many programs. Every week a different town, a different job, a different identity, a different near capture by the authorities. From the pilot episode.
