When the film was about to come out I thought I buy the TV series 1st so I could compare and see what it was all about, so I did and I wasn't disappointed. It was one of the most enjoyable TV programes I have ever watched. It was funny, silly and well written. I have not got around to buying the film yet because I thought I would be disappointed. It's everything you want in a in TV sci-fi or any TV programme. A must watch it's brilliant and the perfect guide to the world.
This was of it's time and of MY time and as such as a special place in my heart, this DVD has a very nice crisp and clear (and in some instances extended) version of the TV series and the extras are definitely worth a look, the commentary isn't bad neither, you can play 'spot the writer' with it (including Mr Adams drunk and naked!)
Recommended for a wet weekend.
I remember seeing this in the early '80s and loved it immediately. You can watch this a hundred times and not get bored. Okay, so I'm a fan. Check out the original Radio progams and read the books. Brilliant. Even the recent film did the book justice.
This is so cheap, it's almost a shame.
English Sci-Fi at it's very best.
Most definately the best ever adaptation of Douglas Adams fantastic novel.
If you've read the books, listened to the radio play or even if you're a H2G2 virgin, then buy this!
If you're not a fan of the books but liked the film, don't buy this. You have already proved you have no sense of taste!
