The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy

The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy


The show was based off the book and radio show of the same name. It told the story of Arthur Dent, an average Englishman who life was spared by his friend, who turned out to be an alien, while the planet Earth is destroyed. His friend tells him about the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a guide with anything you ever needed, and wanted to know. They travel across the galaxy, meeting friendly, and not so friendly characters in order to find the great question (the answer being 42).

Killer show even if the special effects were off.Rating: 3 likes, 0 dislikes

Okay then, I'll admit the special effects aren't up to par when you compare it to today's standards, the actors were for the most part not well known and many still are not, but it has a killer storyline. It is hilarious, and still gets to me after all these years. That's what matters most, that the show is entertaining. Read more
