A Little More Lois Nettleton
Sept 29, 1964 - The Fugitive - Episode: "Man on a String"
I love it when Richard Kimble, the fugitive, stops to help
a lady with car trouble. And she's turns out to be a waitress
at a local diner. And she finds herself in a jam. And he helps
her out. And she pours him a cup of coffee. And they smoke
(And I love it when the fugitive character doesn't have
to slaughter the waitress in a psycho-sexual serial killer
pattern which requires low, mysterious bluish lighting
and constant Steadicam movement and rapid cutting to
gloss over the many shortcomings of the storytelling.
And the CSI people aren't dashing all over the place,
intently pondering every dust particle and making
grand announcements about their startling conclusions
and laboratory results, which camouflage the fact that
the screenwriters haven't had a decent script idea in
twenty freaking years.)
I'm just saying. . . . . . .
