HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Series)

What's the answer to life, universe and everything? 42!

Sure, its a TV series - but heck: what a fantastic one!!



Excerpt from HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy


"I've gone right off this towel, you know,' said Zaphod handing it back.
Roosta took it back from him, swung himself off the desk, walked round it, sat in the chair and put his feet up.
"Beeblebrox,"' he said, sticking his hands behind his head, "have you any idea what's going to happen to you on the Frogstar?"
"They're going to feed me?" hazarded Zaphod hopefully.
"They're going to feed you," said Roosta, "into the Total Perspective Vortex!"
Zaphod had never heard of this. He believed that he had heard of all the fun things in the Galaxy, so he assumed that the Total Perspective Vortex was not fun. He asked Roosta what it was.
"Only," said Roosta, "the most savage psychic torture a sentient being can undergo."
Zaphod nodded a resigned nod.
"So," he said, "no food, huh?"
"Listen!" said Roosta urgently, "you can kill a man, destroy his body, break his spirit, but only the Total Perspective Vortex can annihilate a man's soul! The treatment lasts seconds, but the effects last the rest of your life!"
"You ever had a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster?" asked Zaphod sharply.
"This is worse."
"Phrecow!" admitted Zaphod, much impressed.

Re: HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Series)

"I refuse to prove that I exist" said god. "As proof denies faith, and without faith, I am nothing."

"Ah, but the babel fish is a dead give away, isn't it?" said man.
"It proves you exist and therefore you don't. QED."

"Oh dear" said god. "I hadn't thought of that" and promptly vanished into a puff of logic.

Man then went one to prove that black was white and was subsequently killed at the next zebra crossing.

Re: HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Series)

Is this thread dedicated to :

A) The innovative radio series? In which case it needs to be moved to the Off-world forum

B) The hilarious books? In which case it needs to be moved to the Off-world forum

C) The little-known stage productions? In which case it needs to be moved to the Off-world forum

D) The very nice TV series? In which case it needs to be moved to the Off-world forum

E) The text-only computer game, now available to play online at the BBC's website? In which case it needs to be moved to the Off-world forum

or

F) The towel? In which case it needs to be moved to the Pilot's Mess.

I love H2G2

Re: HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Series)

There was meant to be a game. It was going to be made by the now sadly-defunct company The Digital Village, who made Douglas Adams' Starship Titanic (one of the funniest games I've ever played - check out John Cleese as the talking Bomb, and Terry Jones as the ship's parrot - class!). Sadly, I think it's not going to be made anymore
