It'll be interesting to see how they weld up the gaps caused by the differences between the first two books and their radio versions, but this should be really good!

Call me a curmudgeon and a heretic, but I'm not sure if I'm that excited. The original two brilliant radio series were one of my most formative influences as a kid and I still love listening to them, but I never really liked the third book let alone the subsequent however many (I lose count) and the TV adaptation. The excerpts from the new stuff they played on the radio yesterday seemed a bit forced, like they knew they were really only milking a tired formula. Hitchhiker changed radio, but that was twenty-seven years ago - isn't it time to move on?

As you wish then Nekko, you are a curmudgeon and heretic.

There's a lot of talent going into this so I don't see why it should not be fun, providing they don't treat it in an over respectful manner. I don't think there's much that Douglas Adams wrote that isn't both amusing and thought provoking.

ohohohohoh A DNA thread. I think I wet myself from excitement.

Anyway, if you really wanna laugh and think at the same time, read the "Salmon of Doubt". It's like a collection of speeches, essays, interviews, and short stories. It's excellent, even though it was published post humously.
