The first 15 episodes of this second season of "The Fugitive" features transfers from the original film negatives. The black and white series does look quite stark actually, and sharp overall. However, there are still flaws to be had: scratches and blemishes are all over the episodes, and there is some shimmering and noise. The episodes are very watchable, and again, are sharp. Not bad for a series that's over four decades old.
The English Mono tracks have been restored, and it is something you can easily tell. There's no hisses, pops or cackles, and fidelity is really high. The dialogue is very clear and the music cues sound nice, and the sound effects ring in thoroughly. Despite the limitations of this being a mono track, these sound remarkably strong. For what these are, it's impressive.
English closed captions are available through your television.
Like the first two volumes, the latest DVD incarnation of "The Fugitive" is pretty straightforward: no extras, and decent presentations of this nearly 45 year-old show. You're paying for classic TV content, so if you're a fan of the series, it's probably worth picking up.
