Some of you readers might remember my sharing some trailers for this new Quibi short-form streaming service in an effort to upgrade the amount of content in our Pop Culture focuses. The first show that we discussed was their take on “Most Dangerous Game” and if you click the highlighted text you can see those narratives. Next up comes their new version of “The Fugitive”. This was a very popular show in the fifties and also a great movie with Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones so let’s see how they modified this premise with the first Official Trailer online now. Enjoy.
When a bomb rips through the Los Angeles subway train he’s riding on, blue-collar Mike Ferro just wants to make sure his wife, Allison, and 10-year-old daughter, Pearl, are safe. But the faulty evidence on the ground and “tweet-now, confirm-later” journalism paint a nightmarish picture: it looks to all the world that Mike was responsible for the heinous act. Wrongfully—and very publicly—accused, Mike must prove his innocence by uncovering the real perpetrator, before the legendary cop heading the investigation can apprehend him.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looked pretty intense to be honest and I’ve always enjoyed the larger premise of a show like “The Fugitive” since it often kept you on the edge of your seat. That said I wonder what you readers think about this one? Did you sign up after the last series I discussed? I must admit that I did not, and this was so I could avoid forgetting to cancel after a trial period which also ended up happening to me with DC Universe. Since two things kept me on longer than planned I don’t want to let a third hit my credit card. Right now I am too busy with keeping the announcements going about changes due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. You can chime in down below with what you thought about this one and I will leave you at that. Oh wait, there is also a shameless plug for you to explore. See you again soon.
PS: Back in March I lined out what I determined to be a useful bunch of notions that will make this quarantine time a potentially productive one if you are looking for some things to distract you. With the world some four months into this uncertainly I think its wise to repeat this share. Read that over on “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” by clicking HERE.
