Something happened. About two weeks ago, ME-TV, Memorable Entertainment Television, changed their fall lineup. Here in Orange Beach, AL they have stopped showing our classic 1960s TV program The Fugitive. Instead of waiting for them to bring it back who knows when, I’ve decided to keep podcasting. I’m catching episodes of the show on YouTube and hope you will follow along. As always, you’ll find Gusto Television podcasts over at gustosmooth.com.
I need to thank my paid sponsor, Urban Taxi of Pensacola, Florida, for letting me continue on in this. I’m still recording a new ad for them within the first minute of the podcast. You may notice their fleet of cabs is looking a little cleaner. Yeah, after about 7 weeks with no rain, Pensacola has gotten a few downpours lately. So, the dirty city’s dirty streets are a little cleaner, and so too are Urban Taxi’s cabs.
Now, let’s talk about the two most recent episodes of our show. Episode 9 was titled “Escape into Black.” In it our man the fugitive, Dr. Richard Kimble, is badly hurt while searching for that one armed man. Kimble is hospitalized with a concussion and amnesia. He doesn’t remember who he is. A hospital social worker lady tries to help him. An uppity affirmative action colored doctor tries to use Kimble as an experiment, and when he learns of Kimble’s true identity tries to get him captured. That social worker lady helps Kimble escape and learns the truth. She believes in him and his innocence. The tenacious Lt. Gerard is back, and he’s closing in. Kimble is only moments away from being captured. How will he get away? Tune into my podcast and I’ll tell you.
Episode 10 was titled “The Cage.” We find our man Dr. Kimble calling himself Jeff Parker. He’s a handyman in a little fishing village. His boss, Joe, has a beautiful 15 year old daughter, Carla, who loves Kimble. He tries to keep his distance but can’t. Carla’s father gets jealous. Then, Kimble finds a man who has died of bubonic plague. Kimble reports it to the health department and the town and its fishing boats are quarantined. Kimble and Carla keep talking to one another, and her father gets fed up. He tells deputies that Kimble acts like a wanted man. They fingerprint Kimble, learn who he is, and detain him. When the quarantine is lifted they plan to extradite Kimble back to death row. How will he get out of this one? If you’ll listen to my podcast I’ll fill you in.
