Struggling writer Jeffrey Hunt fakes his own death in order to achieve literary immortality. His unfaithful wife Debby has been having an adulterous affair with Jeffrey's publicist and best friend Tony Lynch. Debby and Tony try to make Jeffrey's staged death real, but the plan backfires. Written by
When Debby Hunt begins cheating on her novelist husband Jeffrey (Willem Dafoe) with his publicist Tony of all people, he decides to fake his own death in order to achieve immortality in the literary world and attempt to reconcile his ailing relationship. This doesn't sit well at all with the two adulterous lovers who vow to kill him for real. I enjoyed this episode a lot and had fun with the twists and turns of the story to say any more would spoil a delightful little tale, so i won't. But suffice it to say, if only all or even half of the series was as good as this one was then the show would have been a bonifide classic as opposed to the mild cult classic success that it currently enjoys. This is one of the episodes that can be found on Volume 1 of the US release of the Hitchhiker. It also has optional commentary by Director Carl Schenkel who has pretty much nothing at all to say making it one of the worst commentary tracks that I've ever heard in my life.
My Grade: B+
Eye Candy: Dayle Haddon shows T&A, as well as a rather quick full frontal
