Third-episode verdict: Runaway

Posted on October 16, 2006 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share


Runaway, aka “The Fugitive and his family” has been bumbling along for three weeks or so now: time for third-episode verdict. I'm going to stamp it with an almighty “average”.

It's improved slightly since the distinctly unimpressive first episode, but it's still failing to come up with any interesting story thread, unlike Vanished (for all that show's silliness), and the characters aren't desperately involving either. Oh no, little Jimmy is going to have to flunk the Spelling Bee or else his photo will be taken and they'll be caught! How awful.

I'm predicting a slow, lingering death for this one, unless someone puts it out of its misery. Don't get caught up in it.
