Okay and entertaining, but I didn't like the ending.
1 August 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This episode of "The Hitchhiker" titled "Man's Best Friend" is okay and entertaining, yet it's supernatural and mysterious plus I didn't really like it's ending. You have Michael O' Keefe as a man named Richard who's overworked and stressed out on his job only to one day return to his apartment to have his wife decide it's enough and she throws him out! So the only hope and friend that he finds is after upon moving into a friend's place he meets a mystery dog. Yet the dog takes over his evil feelings and attitude and one by one haunts and brings revenge on Richard's enemies! Only I didn't like how this episode ends, I guess friendships aren't forever this was entertaining, but not one of the series stronger episodes.
