The last 15 episodes of the second season of "The Fugitive" features transfers from the original film negatives (just like the past DVD releases). Overall, the image quality is pretty sharp and the stark black-and-white look comes off well. But like past DVD releases, the same and typical flaws are here: noise, shimmering and plenty of dirt pieces, blemishes and scratchable. Still, the episodes are in decent shape and are watchable. It's more than I can say about some series that aren't even over 40 years old like this one.
The English Mono tracks have been restored too. Things are pretty crisp here, as there are no defects: no pops, no cackles and no hissing. Fidelity is pretty high, while everything else comes through quite well: the clear dialogue, the audible music cues and the variety of sound effects. Clean and strong for old mono tracks, and pleasing too.
English closed captions are available through your television.
If you have bought "The Fugitive" on DVD before, you know what
you're getting: no extras, and above-average presentations of the
episodes. It is all about content for the classic series, as the show
is still entertaining over 40 years later. If you're a fan of the show,
then you'll probably be checking this out.
