Over in the podcast section at gustosmooth.com you will find the latest podcast to follow along with our classic TV show from the 1960s, The Fugitive. This episode was titled “Tug of War.”
98, 99, 100. No, I ain’t counting my pocket money. I’m telling you the temperature these past few days. My paid sponsor, Urban Taxi of Pensacola, Florida, does not want you sweating to death out in the heat. Whether you’re going to take your lady friend out to dinner or you’re going to bail her out of jail, do it in the air conditioned comfort of an Urban Taxi cab. Remember, I record a new ad for Urban Taxi in the first minute of every Gusto Television podcast.
In this episode our man the fugitive, Dr. Richard Kimble, is calling himself Kelley and minding his own business in Cornell, Idaho when, dang it, he’s recognized in a post office. The local fuzz, a Deputy Fallon, is hot on his tail and actually flying around in a helicopter looking for Kimble. Our man Kimble heads for the wilderness, where he’s found and arrested by a one-man posse, Samuel. This man Samuel has a rifle and a heart condition.
Soon Deputy Fallon crashes the party. He and Samuel have a past, and it isn’t a good one. Samuel is a disgraced former sheriff who made a deadly error in judgment. Deputy Fallon is a vain young hotshot who was kicked out of his pilot job in the military and has something to prove. Meanwhile, our man Kimble is still the same good fella trying to escape trouble, prove his innocence, and help others.
Not everybody’s going to make it in this one. If you’ll listen to my podcast I’ll share the story with you.
