This "Hitchhiker" episode titled "Best Shot" stars Ken Olin and Parker Stevenson as two hot shot California lawyers one a defense attorney the other a law professor. One weekend the two decide to venture out along the coast for a joy ride of fun and entertainment with no respect or feeling of law or rules. This little joy ride is recorded on a video camera only this reality adventure show tapes a tragedy as the two by mistake hit a road passenger and take his life. Yet both of these young hot shots are selfish and they continue on the cool journey. Fate and karma later strikes like in so many "Hitchhiker" episodes when the two pull into a rugged and outlaw bar and gas station type. The two cunning and cool lawyers find that the bar isn't all that nice which is ran by outlaws, the only treat is a sexy lady played by Michelle Moffett, she leaves with both only to set the duo up to the brutal fate. In the end as the outlaws find out the truth by the video camera recording it's payback time with their best shot! Remember a picture is worth a thousand words! Overall good episode that shows turn about is fair play with old style testament justice an eye for an eye and tooth for tooth.
