2.) Special Features
1.) I'll start by reassuring anyone hesitating on ordering this set because of the production issues others have experienced, I can say that it is safe to order it now. I ordered my copy in mid-February and I am now half-way through season 3. I have had absolutely no problems with any of the discs so far. I would have to say that the sets being issued now are free from the problems that plagued the earlier pressings. I have also had no problems with the packaging, all the discs are secure and scratch free. The music seems to be intact with nothing replaced. I discovered The Fugitive when I was about 12 years old, I was staying up late one night and it came on. Even at that young age I knew this show was something special and I would try and watch it when I got the chance (I described the show to my best friend as "just like The Incredible Hulk only he doesn't turn into a monster."). A few years later A&E (back when A&E was worth watching) ran the series and again I watched as many episodes as I could but still missed quite a few of them. Now that I have the entire series on DVD I am seeing many episodes for the first time and loving it! Seeing the guest stars is fun too, they always gave great performances and there were many that went on to become famous in their own right. I am very happy with this set, although Paramount could have included some kind of episode guide instead of just listing the titles and airdates. A dream feature would have been a reissue of The Fugitive Recaptured, a very well done book that details the production of the series and has a thorough episode guide. I would love to get a copy but do not want to pay the prices that are being asked for by sellers right now.
UPDATE: I have finished the entire set and have had no problems. I think Paramount did great by stepping up and fixing the problems with the earlier pressings as well as correcting their own mistake of replacing some of the music.
2.) I bought The Fugitive: The Most Wanted Edition - Complete Series, and have enjoyed it more that I can say. David Janssen is such a joy to watch and the series is my favorite of all time. There's just never been anything like it or any character like Richard Kimble or any actor like David Janssen. I did have the same problem as others have had with the bad disks. I e-mailed this address: PHE_CustomerService@Paramount.com and got a very fast response asking for details about my purchase and which discs were bad. After e-mailing the information they wanted I received a whole new set in about two weeks with the bad discs replaced with good ones. Very good service. RUN, DICK, RUN!!!
3.) Once upon a time a television network named CBS made a bunch of fanboys happy by releasing the first season of THE FUGITIVE on DVD. For the most part, the episodes were uncut and unedited. Keeping in mind that a fan base is the dedicated assurance for DVD sales. They watched every episode when they were rerun on television and know every music cue and scene by heart. Then season two came out on DVD and CBS forgot about the fanboys. The theme music was replaced with something generic. CBS claimed it was because they didn't want to pay licensing for the music. Fans were in an uproar. And many boycotted buying future seasons (three and four) until there was some assurance that the episodes would be intact and unedited. CBS did, for a short while, offer a DVD trade-in program offering uncut versions but not everyone found out about this until it was too late. But now CBS released the series again in a new set (referred to as The Most Wanted Edition) which is not referring to Richard Kimble being "wanted," but the uncut versions with the theme music intact, which is what the fans "most wanted." Everything appears intact now and a bonus CD is included with music from the series. So ignore those four individual seasons sold separately. This complete box set is what you want to get and you'll be proud to won this one.
