I've always felt the television incarnation of Hitchhiker's should be better appreciated.

Douglas Adams' tale of a wayward Earthling cast into the world of space travel is so great that even its third-best version -- after the original radio play and Adams' series of novels -- is a classic.

There's nothing here you'll need to see again.

A patchy affair. Despite keeping the radio script mercifully intact, it's blemished by ropey effects and production values that struggle to match the ambitions of the story.

The Guide is a great way to quickly get the audience up to speed on things, but also a way for us to experience the inner workings of Douglas Adams' brain.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable series. In fact it's arguably the most remarkable series ever to come out of the British Broadcasting Corporation.

    Just brilliant. Follows the book as close as it is possible unlike the horrible movie of 2005.
