Most excellent. I liked it better than the earlier UK video adaptation.

i dunno, i kinda felt it follows the same quirky path the books laid down... but it's also been a decade since i read them... i liked the tiny references to the books [the sofa stuck on the stairs is one thing stuck with me for years after reading the books]... and similar to Adams updating the Hitchhikers story for different mediums, the Gently tv series felt like a natural progression... overall i had fun, and Fiona Dourif gets MVP hands down...

i'm going to eat your brains and gain your memories...

Ah yes, the Holistic Assassin. That's an interesting cliff hanger they left her with.
