Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy

I watched the original BCC series of the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy yesterday. The orignal BCC series consists of six, thirty minute long episodes, totalling 180 minutes of entertainment, very good entertainment indeed.

The original BBC series is actually almost a quarter of a century old, it's copyrighted in 1981! The publisher wasn't even ashamed to list 'Mono DD 2.0' sound on the cover.

The parts, where the Hitchhikers Guide is actually being used, are quite entertaining, for example the Babelfish entry depicted above.

Another thing I noticed was the shouting of the large lumpy Vogon: 'Resistance is useless'. Anyway that sounded a bit familiar: 'Resistance is futile'.

And now for the coolest character award... Marvin, the paranoid android was definately the coolest character is the series, being ever so depressed. Like Arthur Dent said: 'An Android?!? It's more like an electronic sulking machine!'.
