the. Hitch-Hiker

the tv show version of the hitch-hiker was much better and haunting the fear suspence wasn't translated well since the man didn't say much in the story but* are you going my way ? seeing him in the back seat was more scary

Classic creepy episode. Unconvincing voice acting.

A classic episode. Full of that Twilight Zone creepiness.

Kate Jackson however is thoroughly unconvincing as a reader. She's narrating the story without any sense of real feelings. She's ACTING it - badly. As this is more or less a "inner monolog" episode, it detracts from my enjoying the story. She did another T Z episode (Queen of the Nile). Did the same thing there. I like her, but not as a narrator.
