You just need to see it...and accept it, 27 Oct. 2001
The HHG is surreal yet an incredibly funny look at all things outside your total understanding of the Universe. After the initial scepticism of a space traveller dressed in his dressing gown, you get to accept Arthur and Ford as old friends, strange, but old friends. Their journies take them all over the place finally ending up on pre historic earth. And if you thought we were descended from cave men...then think again. When you consider this all came out of the head of the late Douglas Adams, you can only marvel at the way the BBC has stayed relatively true to the original script. It was only a pity that series 2, broadcast on the radio and still available as part of a double pack tape box, was not filmed for TV.
OK...some of the scenes may now look a little dated as it is 1980's technology...but what the heck...as the HHG says...Don't Panic!!!
