A religious themed episode that proves your past and guilt can haunt you if your message and word isn't truthful.
6 August 2007 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

In this episode of "The Hitchhiker" titled "W.G.O.D." happens to be really one of the better ones it's well acted, with a hidden secret and it teaches a good moral that the past can haunt a person. You have Gary Busey as a radio preacher Rev. Nolan Powers who's program airs across the nation on all radio dials as he spreads the word of joy and peace. Gary really did well in this role a viewer can tell he put a lot of emotion and work into it. Only this Rev. has a dark secret a bad tragedy that happened in the past to a close family member, his mother has even reminded him of it. The episode takes a shocking twist ending with the secret revealed over the airwaves on his program as the true words of faith and honesty are finally spoken for this so called man of faith. Really a great episode well done good acting from Busey and it's twist is shocking proving secrets from the past can haunt and darken your soul.
