Thanks for posting. I saw these on PBS in 1982. I was 11, and we'd watch these as a family, then Carl Sagan's Cosmos would come on and I'd watch that with my dad (my mom was too much a creationist for it.)


Me to. Good times, life was so much simpler back then

having read the books many times the jokes don't work as well.


There are jokes aplenty here, but it's not really a comedy (if it was, it wouldn't really stand up).

It's Arthur Dent's weird, trippy dream; he walks about in pyjamas and dressing gown throughout the whole thing.

I think it's a brilliant literary device for a sci-fi story, because it allows the author to explore quirky ideas that would otherwise be dismissed as too far-fetched.

The reader/viewer is introduced to bizarre concepts in a comic setting, and you think, "Maybe...who knows?"
