Season 1
The Fugitive

Critics Consensus

Kiefer Sutherland does what he can, but not even Jack Bauer himself can save The Fugitive from its own messy plotting.

Critic Reviews for The Fugitive Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

The Fugitive ultimately feels like the kind of thing that might have worked on the ABC Fall schedule better than it does [on Quibi].

There's little in "The Fugitive" - from the title to the plot to the irresponsible TV news reporter who wrongly implicates Mike - that wouldn't be at home on a CBS series.

It looks like it cost a lot. Sometimes you spend money wisely, and sometimes you blow it out of somewhere.

The dialogue is gruff and dumb, and the plot obvious, but it's fun to sample a new kind of "snackable" entertainment, meant to be consumed on your mobile phone.

Aug 7, 2020 | Full Review…

A project that's not well-thought out, especially for the streamer's 7-10 minute episode format. Oh, and it's bad too.

Aug 4, 2020 | Full Review…

The fact of the matter is that this version of The Fugitive wouldn't have made a good feature-film on any platform; chopped up into 14 daily ten-ish-minute episodes, it's a laughable mess.

Aug 4, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

It is harmless and you may have fun with it, but this reboot is a waste of the source material. Hopefully, Kiefer Sutherland takes on a project that ends up being as iconic as Jack Bauer but this is definitely not it.

Aug 3, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Sutherland fits his role of Detective Clay Bryce like a glove and is clearly having fun embracing genre expectations. As a result this does feel like a protracted episode of 24 in parts, but that is not without some benefits.

Aug 3, 2020 | Full Review…

The entire story feels like a slightly extended episode of a network-TV crime procedural.

    Hello, everybody ! In fact the show is interesting ! kiefer is no doubt a sensational actor. My only concer is about the running time of each episode. why 10 minutes ? I 'll be eager to watch season 02 with 45, 50 or even 60 minutes running time episodes.

    The short burst format does nothing to help what plays out as a pilot episode of a bad cop show.

    The show is fine. It manages to pass the time, which is only about 2 hours given that it's a Quibi series. Surprisingly, the CGI explosions look so cheap and laughable, that it took me out of the experience for a few minutes. Clearly, they never intended this show to be watched anywhere other than a phone so those details are lacking. And, yes, I watched it on my TV, not a phone. It's possible to do that, but not through an app or casting.

    Worth watching. Even though each episode was around 10 minutes, (that was annoying), but the story, cast, and acting? Great! Just goes to show, can never trust the media and can't always trust the authorities. Good to see a bit of reality now and then.
