Hmmm, it sounded like Fan Fiction. Lots of in jokes (I mean, you would have to have read all 5 books and some wiki history to get all of the references), lots of recap as Linds said, and then the actual story was very confused (whereas the original was actually quite a good yarn, as well as having hilarious, individual lines and scenes and concepts.) John Lloyd's voice as the book can't possibly be as good as Peter Jones. Marvin's voice / character seemed all wrong. But I did have a couple of proper LOL and snort moments. I'll listen again, certainly. Stephen Hawking as Book 2 was a great geek-out, but can't be sustained for long dialogue I don't think. Anyhoo, fun to have it back. :-) G

I liked Stephen Hawking as Book 2, too.

I prompted my boss, an old hitch hikers fan. And he professed himself, "not disappointed"! Faint praise. :-) G

Hardly surprising it was a bit rubbish. 40 years ago it was exciting and modern to us children/young adults. Now it is old and tired like its fans :-)

I might give it a go later. Read all the books. Liked the TV show. Film was pants but that was a lacklustre Freeman* having a few days off on auto pilot affair.

He is always like that.

I quite enjoyed last night's episode. The Teleportation Blues was better in print than a 2 min song! I quite like the interview with Cthulhu, a demi god applying for position of god and not getting a call back! :-) G

I only caught the middle section but I thought it was definitely improving. And I also liked the demigod interview scene.

Got something to say?
