Anyone watching it? Two more episodes for me to go and I'm really enjoying it. Totally bonkers and I've no idea how someone was mad enough to write it.
Seems ENTIRELY different to the BBC Four adaptation. Anyone read Douglas Adams' books its based on?
Watched one episode and thought it was complete shite.
Yes I've read the source material. I'm not sure the show's creators have.
Not seen any of the Netflix series, but I have read the books and enjoyed the BBC4 version.
I've heard mixed things about this latest one, but then again, the BBC4 one got slated by some, too.
Mrs HYG has been watching it, twice I've come home and seen the last 15 minutes of an episode. Completely, utterly baffling, and I feel like even if I watched the rest of it, it still wouldn't make any sense.
I'd say that's a fair summary. It's the kind of show I usually hate, butfor some reason I'm just enjoying the character dynamics and sheer lunacyof it
The first book is wonderful, the second felt a bit laboured.
I've seen some previous dramatisations and am struggling to remember exactly what I've seen and how good they might have been.
Might give this a go.
Just binge watched the final three episodes and can honestly say it was the best two hours of TV I've seen in a while. Takes agggeeeessss to start to make sense and not seem barmy, but its a great payoff when it how's through the gears.
Gone from a curiosity to the best show I've seen in a while. (But be warned, I don't admittedly watch many series)
