A series of mystery-thriller stories, linked only by the character of The Hitchhiker, who would introduce and close each episode in the style of Rod Serling or Alfred Hitchcock. Occasional stories involved supernatural forces, but most plot twists stemmed only from the dark side of the human spirit.Written by

In worldwide syndication, the three 1983 episodes have been re-worked to remove all of 'Nicholas Campbell''s scenes. His scenes were re-shot with Page Fletcher and the opening/end credits altered to reflect this change. Presumably, this change was made to preserve continuity with all of the other Hitchhiker episodes. See more »
This tv show was one of the best ever made. It kept audiences hooked, and you never could predict exactly how the episodes would turn out. With a style somewhere between The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, everything about this show from the opening theme and hitchhiker's opening monologue to the final shocking scene was first-rate. Try either to catch it on tv or the episodes available in the video store. You won't regret it.
