The Fugitive: Season 1 Reviews

August 7, 2020
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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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