This one just seemed awfully goofy to me.
30 April 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Ivy Maze" is filled with weird story elements and coincidences which made for a much more remarkable and unbelievable plot than usual...making it seem like a weak episode.

The one-armed man just happens to be working at a college where one of Dr. Kimble's old college chums works. Together, the two doctors come up with a weird pay the one-armed man to participate in a sleep deprivation study and get him to confess to the murder of Kimble's wife since his defenses will be lowered. Dr. Simpson (William Windom) has one glitch in the plan...he doesn't consider his wife...a woman who wants to see Kimble captured. Plus, no one seemed to anticipate the way the one-armed man would react once he's betrayed himself...a HUGE weakness in the plot as well.

I don't like "The Fugitive" episodes where you have to suspend disbelief as much as you do in this one. While it was all very novel, it also seemed like the writers had perhaps run out of ideas and were scraping together a plot which should have been tossed.
