THE FUGITIVE 11/24/64 “The Cage”

The writers put Kimble in another fascinating situation. He’s working in a small California fishing village and has made friends there but feels it’s time to move on. But then he discovers a dying resident has the bubonic plague. The fishermen don’t’ want to report it because they’ll be quarantined at a time when the tuna are running. Kimble risks discovery if he calls in the authorities. But if he runs he could be a carrier- and what if the fishermen catch the tuna and sell it?

But the premise gets kind of under-used and displaced by a plot involving a 15 year old girl, (Brenda Scott, who falls for Kimble to the consternation of her father and boyfriend. Tim O’Connor, of last season’s “Taps for a Dead War” returns, this time without the grotesque make-up, as a public health doctor. You wonder why Gerard doesn’t show up in this one- doesn’t anybody tell him anything?

Seinfeld episode "The Challenge" between the four.

Kramer kills it

Nice to have a response. I envisioned everybody citing their favorite episodes of their favorites series, as happened with the movie threads from a year ago. .
