Sexy and a surprise haunt of the past that shows true colors, well done episode of the series.
6 November 2007 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This "Hitchhiker" episode titled "Doctor's Orders" is certainly one of the better done episodes of the series it's very sexy and it proves so well that a persons past can catch up with them and haunt them. Paul LeMat stars as a city mayor who's up for election again and he feels he's doing everyone a favor by trying to fight the war on porn and sex. Yet it hits close to home when a family member is caught making a sex tape, but as the episode shifts the viewer sees a dark secret lies with the LeMat character that will catch up with him and destroy his life and state of mind he's clearly stripped bare! The key character involved is a woman who works as an escort who specializes in seduction and making X rated home movies with customers this lady(played by sexy ex playmate of the year Shannon Tweed making her second "Hitchhiker" appearance) has a past connection to the mayor as the old flames of passion returns to the present and it becomes a haunting reality a nightmare that will take the mayor down. All along the hidden secret of lust and passion will turn to betrayal this episode was crafted so well to show how each soul gives into sex and lust and just how scandal brings politicians down. Just to mention the scenes with Shannon Tweed are hot and sexy especially those of her in a black bra, plus she shows a little frontal cleavage! Overall great episode that's sexy and proves that the past can haunt and bring a person down.
