New Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series!!!


There are some things that are so wonderful that they defy mere words. One such wonderful thing is that there is a new Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series, airing on the BBC website. The new series brings back most of the original cast, including Simon Jones as Arthur Dent, Jeffery McGiven as Ford Prefect, Mark Wing-Davie as Zaphod Beeblebrox, and Peter Jones as The Book. The new series starts at Fit the Thirteenth, and it appears that there will be six new episodes.

And if THAT isn't enough, the BBC has re-released the original Infocom Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy text-based adventure game as a web-based, flash-based, game. This is the only game of that genre that I ever solved, and it took over three years and two different computing platforms to do it.

Sometimes life IS worth living!!!!
