It was just about a week ago when I shared the Official Trailer for “The Fugitive” which is the next foray into short-form entertainment from the folks over at Quibi. Today this series has just gone “live” for those who are finding this method of entertainment to their liking. Let’s review the new poster, premise and casting before I close up with some editorial opinion.
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.

About Quibi: Quibi (/ˈkwɪbi/ KWIB-ee) is an over-the-top American short-form streaming platform that generates content for viewing on mobile devices. It was founded in August 2018, in Los Angeles, as NewTV by Jeffrey Katzenberg and is led by Meg Whitman, its CEO.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though a fan of what Kiefer brought to the show “24” and of these kinds of action-adventure series, I’m not adding another subscription service to my monthly credit card costs. I guess I will not be seeing that as result, but maybe the whole thing will somehow surface on either Netflix or even YouTube in some fashion in the not too distant future. If it doesn’t, I’m fairly certain that I can get past the crushing grief ;p – What about you readers? Are you fans enough of this kind of thing to sign up for another service? Do you like the idea of these very short form clips to make up your entertainment? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. Also, if you are running short on things to do, read more about some ideas in a shameless plug.
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.
