I was hooked on that one from the beginning. I saw that one on the reruns in the 70’s. 51 years later it is a great series still. Janssen and Morse humanism the character and made them even so compelling that audiences. The first 3 seasons the show was shot in black and white the last season it was in color they should left it in black and white and i think the audience became emotionally drained with this series. Even 4 years it’s a good run. Of course there were an arrays of guess actors that came on the show. The last episode of the show was dawned in 2 hours and was the biggest event on television back then. Barry Morse said one time that he was in a London restaurant when a waiter handed him a note. It read, “Kimble is in the kitchen.”  It is commonly given that this show was based on the ‘s murder case of Samuel Holmes Sheppard 1954.
