one of the best episodes of The Hitchhiker
24 June 2007 | by g404cSee all my reviews

New Blood is one of the best episodes of The Hitchhiker (ironically, it was the very last episode of the show's entire eight-year run). Rae Dawn Chong stars as Leesa, a histrionic, out of work actress with delusions of grandeur. When she auditions for a part in "Songs of Despair", a performance to be given by a nearby acting troupe, she is shunned by the players. But Leesa is hell-bent on becoming part of the group. Dider Sauvegrain, Joanna Pavlis, and Jean-Philippe Chatrier co-star.

This episode has attractive players and a subtle glamour throughout. In addition, it contains the right mix of suspense and intrigue--it held my interest from beginning to end.
