Pretty predictable, watch it for the performance of Jerry Orbach.
14 August 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "Hitchhiker" episode titled "Cabin Fever" is pretty predictable yet it contained many of the series themes of passion, lust, betrayal, and murder with fun loving suspense. You will spot TV veteran and former "Law and Order" star Jerry Orbach and really his performance carries this episode, Jerry is always just so watchable. Michael Woods is Rick Henson a male womanizer type who goes around place to place meeting up with women mostly married ones and then it's under the sheets behind the husbands back! Only this time at a secluded cabin Rick is in for more than he bargained for when he meets the husband(Jerry Orbach) of his latest prize, he finds that this man is sly and cunning. Though he has plenty of stories from his days of directing film, this old crafty veteran means business and as you see isn't one to mess with. Overall not a great episode but well worth a look due to the performance of Jerry Orbach.
