At the same time, he lets Joanne know that he's on her side, but she's suspicious to his true motives. Once arriving in L.A., Kimble decides to set up Miles and Vinnie to be arrested. But Miles, not trusting Kimble enough, wants him to kill Joanne to prove himself.moreless

    "See Hollywood and Die" finds Kimble as a hostage, and struggling both to survive and to keep his true identity a secret.



    This is a great episode, taut with suspense and boasting guest performances that really resonate. The scenes at the car dealership, where Kimble tries to sabotage the gang's new wheels in order to attract the police, and the scene where Joanne tries to escape across the freeway, are riveting, and they all add up to make "See Hollywood and Die" one of the most thrilling of the show's early episodes.



    Brenda Vaccaro is beautiful, vulnerable and bold as Joanne, Kimble's fellow hostage, and Lou Antonio and Chris Robinson are menacing as Miles and Vinnie, the gunmen who set the whole thing in motion. David Janssen really shines as he tries to let Joanne know he is on her side while also posing as a small-time hood in order to dupe the gunmen.



    The show keeps moving until the end, when it isn't clear how, or if, Kimble will be able to extract himself from the situation without getting Joanne killed.moreless
