Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Sixth Radio Series (and others)

So they’ve adapted the Eion Colfer book, and it’s… fine?

HOT TAKE : Hitchhikers was never actually that funny.

And I say someone who lapped all this stuff up back in the day and has even read “so long …” about 6 times.

I’m finding the current series distinctly underwhelming. Really hard to get past the fact that the person who wrote the funny stuff is a bit dead.

This take is wrong and makes me sad.


Well it’s also internally inconsistent.

I think it’s fine to think it’s dated, but then many successful comedies become less appealing through sheer familiarity.
