Lovely young invalid Meg Kinderly has to fend for herself after she gets trapped in her spacious family mansion with a vicious killer who has just wiped out most of her family and all of the servants...
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

Page Fletcher usually only worked one day a week and his wrap-around host segments were often shot in a half hour. See more »
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 »
I never saw the HBO episodes unedited (My parents refused to get HBO). However, I began to date a girl who liked shows like this and I became hooked.
At one point in the series the hitchhiker seem to be Paris. How could a hitchhiker have the money to hike in Europe?
My only problem with the show was Page Fletcher--well not so much Page Fletcher but a particular part of Page Fletcher that the directors seem to like a lot--his butt. Apparently a lot of women watched this show as well and liked his tight jeans shots (that's what I read). Maybe all the directors' close up Fletcher's caboose help to introduce the sagging jeans era that rap popularized!
Hopefully if the sells of the DVD goes well the show will be put back into late-night syndication.
