THE IMMORTAL COMPLETE 8 DVD SETPremiered: September 24, 1970 Last Aired: September 8, 1971 Show Categories: Science-Fiction, Drama Ben Richards works as a test car driver. He is a young, handsome man with no cares in the world. His life is turned upside down after he donates a pint of blood. The doctor tells him that there's something different about his blood. Nothing "wrong" -- to the contrary, Ben's O negative blood contains antibodies and immunities that make him totally immune to everything, including old age. The billionaire who gets his donated blood is brought back from the brink of death because of those antibodies. He learns of Ben's blood and, as the effects of the transfusion wear off, decides he must control Ben's life so that this rare gift will be available any time he needs it. Ben is offered everything in exchange for becoming the billionaire's private fountain of youth. He rejects the offer but finds himself imprisoned. He escapes and is forced to go on the run, leaving behind his job, his home, and his financee. Even after the billionaire dies, Ben is not safe: Fletcher, an employee of the deceased, recruits a new billionaire. Fletcher is given a blank check and the job of finding Ben Richards. While looking over his shoulder for Fletcher, Ben is also on the lookout for his brother, Jason. The two were orphaned and separated as teenagers. No one knows if Jason's blood also possesses these miraculous antibodies. Ben only knows he has to find Jason before Fletcher does.«Pilot 1969 ABC 0- 1 30 Sep 69 The Immortal (90 min)1st Season 1970 1- 1 24 Sep 70 Sylvia 1- 2 1 Oct 70 White Elephants Don't Grow on Trees 1- 3 8 Oct 70 Reflections on a Lost Tomorrow 1- 4 15 Oct 70 The Legacy 1- 5 22 Oct 70 The Rainbow Butcher 1- 6 29 Oct 70 Man on a Punched Card 1- 7 5 Nov 70 White Horse, Steel Horse 1- 8 12 Nov 70 The Queen's Gambit 1- 9 19 Nov 70 By Gift of Chance 1-10 3 Dec 70 Dead Man, Dead Man 1-11 10 Dec 70 Paradise Bay 1-12 17 Dec 70 The Return 1-13 31 Dec 70 To the Gods Alone 1-14 7 Jan 71 Sanctuary 1-15 14 Jan 71 Brother's Keeper
