Once again, Kimble takes on a bully....
9 March 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

One of the common themes in episodes of "The Fugitive" is the bully who picks on a smaller or disabled person. Invariably, Richard Kimble, at considerable risk to himself, comes to the defenseless person's aid. In this case, it's a young man named Jamie. Jamie is intellectually challenged--and Dan (James Best) takes great delight in tormenting the guy on the construction site where they all work. Inexplicably, the other workers fall in line with Dan.

Later in the episode, after Kimble does his usual fistfight with the bully, Dan decides to get Jamie in trouble...and gets the guy fired. Soon after this, someone assaults the boss' wife and Dan is quick to foment a lynch mob mentality. This really makes little sense, as Jamie liked the lady and she was teaching him to read. Can Kimble figure out what REALLY happened?!

This is a good some ways like the episode "Fatso" just a couple episodes earlier. However, it's not nearly as good because the conclusion as to who attacked the lady NEVER is in any way in question. It does, however, reiterate that Kimble is a heck of a great guy....
