pickin' up strangers, let me tell you 'bout the dangers March 21 2011
By JGC - Published on
Up until recently I never knew of "The Hitchhiker" and I was a little disappointed in myself for not know about this fantastic series sooner. I am a huge fan of horror/mystery/sci-fi anthologies (TFTC and TFTDS are my 2 favorites). "The Hitchhiker" is a fantastic addition to this genre. Included on this 2-disc set are a total of 10 eps (5 eps per disc) that were first broadcast on Home Box during the golden era of the horror anthology series.

These are some of the best eps from this set:

Perfect Order / February 17, 1987 - Will a model do anything it takes to pose for one of the world's most eccentric photographers?

Cabin Fever / May 12, 1987 - The tables are turned when a young man goes to work on a houseboat.

Out of the Night / October 29, 1985 - A man wonders aimlessly searching for something or someone and along the way he finds out a startling secret.

Secret Ingredient / May 5, 1987 - A glib salesman gets his comeuppance when he finds out that all isn't what it appears. (This is my favorite ep from the set.)

The storylines and themes do not revolve around a hitchhiker, rather it was narrated/hosted by Page Fletcher (The Hitchhiker) who had the tightest jeans in Hollywood. He always opened and closed each ep, sorta like the Crypt Keeper (but not nearly as funny).

The set is closed captioned, includes subtitles and includes audio commentary for 3 of the eps by one of the directors and Harry Hamlin who was in one of the eps. By the way, I posted a pic of the 2 discs and the insert.

I would like to see more DVD sets of this series (including some complete season sets) come out as I am sure many fans would just gobble them up. Or at the very least Home Box could provide some eps to YT or even Crackle or FearNet. I realize many eps are available through other channels but in twenty-eleven many consumers do not use a computer as their primary streaming method anymore and can only access what their blu-rays provide.

Get "The Hitchhiker" Vol. 2 and experience macabre, terror, excitement and lots of overdone '80s acting.

When The Hitchhiker came on in the 80's i was totally hooked on this tv show!!!!! It's cool that it came out on two volumes on dvd so that way you can relive all those classic horror tales!!!!! What made it creepy was the music and the stories and it had a great cast to play the parts in the stories so go and get them in your collection now!!!!!

For the price this is an excellent buy. About the only series that came from HBO that was scary and entertaining in one package. Many headlining Actors/Actress on here. Great to have on disc if you can't sit still for about 45 minutes, hit the pause and take care of your business, Page Fletcher will be right there to help you down the road.

Mediocre series with a "worst of" compilation to show for it. Oct. 20 2011
By YetAnotherJames - Published on
The Hitchhiker is not great, but its shortcomings are further compounded because this compilation features some of its worst moments. A little background:
The Hitchhiker began on HBO, but was eventually sold to USA network. The series focused on story lines that, while violent, could often be explained through reason and science rather than the supernatural. Although the third season had a truly great episode ("Nightshift," which is not featured on this compilation), The Hitchhiker's typical episode was lackluster at best. Personally, I still find it entertaining, but I'd be remiss to call it a "good" show; it was often confusing and/or terrible. The episode on this compilation entitled "O.D. Feelin'," for example, is more like a morality play put on by a high school drama club than a professionally-produced TV show. Surprisingly, both Gene Simmons (as "Mr. Big" the least original character name in history, even if it deliberately represents an archetype) and Sandra Bernhard (with a lousy voice-over dubbed to make her character more convincing as a man) appear in "O.D. Feelin'."
When making these DVD compilations, the producers seem to have chosen the shows based on star power (I use the term loosely, most of the more prominent "stars" from this series are B-listers who gained small amounts of fame after appearing on The Hitchhiker) rather than quality. I have watched volumes one through three, and as a true fan of anthology horror, I found only one episode to be on the same level as, say, Tales From the Crypt, or even Tales from the Darkside (which had MANY bad episodes)--or even The Ray Bradbury Theater.
