I became an instant fan of The Hitchhiker from the first episode that I saw. Each episode was so very well written and had a story that had me hooked until the end. It's obvious that the series owes some degree of its success to the original Twilight Zone series, but The Hitchhiker was far from a carbon copy. Though he was not the original choice for the title character/narrator, Page Fletcher was excellent as the mysterious drifter who had great stories to tell. What also makes this show fun to watch is seeing so many of today's well known actors (Kirstie Alley, Joe Pantoliano) in early roles. Wikipedia says HBO will release the complete series on DVD in 2012. I can hardly wait!
