Don’t Panic

  1. If it’s any comfort, Douglas Adams was involved in the adaptation until he croaked. I know that he did make changes for whatever reason – thus they’re his own. One thing I noticed when I got on the web site a couple of weeks ago is that Zaphod doesn’t have two heads, and he’s portrayed as kind of a California hippie. I am geeked to see it, and I’ll try to keep an open mind. The move covers more than just Hitchhiker, which I re-read not too long ago. I’m not going to read the others till after I see the flick.

  2. Should I read it again before I see the movie? Hmmm… So Long and Thanks for All the Fish, too? Hmmmmmm… I’d have to borrow them or buy them again on half.com – my copies are long gone. Still have my copy of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
    As for the creepy little cartoon of LOTR -*SHIVER* EW! Skeeves me out just thinking about it now. I hated that shite. I’d take crappy japanamation over that pile of ’70’s poop.

  3. I am saving a reread in case the movie sucks and I have to flush it from my brain. I hope it’s better than the TV show.

  4. I’ve always had a soft spot for BBC sic-fi shows. I actually saw the TV show back in college before I read any of the books.
    Used to love watching Doctor Who, too. I mean what could be better than jumping into a phone booth with a hot chick?

  5. I watched every single episode of Tom Baker’s Dr. Who, lost interest after that, although that new blonde guy (what was his name?) was cute. My house now is Tardis-esque, looks very small from the outside, actually surprisingly big on inside. I’m devious like that.

  6. Tom Baker was the quintessential Doctor. I stopped watching after him as well, mostly because his successor (I think it was his successor) was the actor who played Tristan on All Creatures Great and Small – another British production of which I was quite fond. I had trouble seeing him as anything else.
    D’you suppose some people debate Doctor actors the way others do Bond?

  7. I would prefer to debate Bonds, because the only time I ever watched Dr. W was when Dribble controlled the channel.
