Storyline

Test driver Ben Richards discovers his blood contains every immunity known to man--in effect making him immortal. When an elderly billionaire named Maitland learns of Richards' condition, he hires mercenary Fletcher to track Richards all over the country, capture him, and bring him back to Maitland's estate for periodic transfusions. The series details Richards' adventures with people he meets along the way, all the while fleeing from Fletcher and his goons. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

I liked it, but I was a child
9 December 1998 | by len-26See all my reviews

I saw every episode, few as there were. Although I remember few plots, the recurring theme was similar to The Fugitive. Each week, Ben Richards would encounter some good people in desperate straits, and he would help them, despite the threat of capture. Frequently that help involved him giving someone a transfusion.

I suspect this concept would not work in the 1990's.
