    "Man's Best Friend" is truly one of the best episodes of The Hitchhiker. Everything about this episode works. The acting is fantastic. Michael O'Keefe is excellent as the very disturbed Richard Sheppard. The viewer can truly feel the pain he inflicts upon himself. The episode also has a very well written script. I was hooked all the way until the end. This episode ends on the right note as well with a damn near perfect finale. The scene where all is revealed is very well done and even quite scary. Make time to see this terrific episode.moreless
