Audience Reviews for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Season 1

    This TV series certainly has it's, um, quirks, but I'm surprised it does not get a higher rating. It is a unique show based on a unique book. It's quirkyness is it's charm. Sure, read the book and listen to the radio plays for perhaps a better version. Yet enjoy this series for what is is. Read or listen to the book 'Don't Panic' for more background on the making of this series and enjoy it all the more.

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