Posted:hmmm... i always imagined marvin to be just a black box with legs and arms shrug

Written by: That site thing

Based on Douglas Adams' cult radio series



seeing as ive only ever read the book, and neither seen nor heard it on any other format... is the radio any different, or has somebody not done his research and not realised that the book was the original...

im hopeing that the book was the original thing to avoid sounding like a complete twat... *pre-emptivly hangs head in shame*

Posted:Hang thy head in shame for the radio series was the original (and the best) the books were based on the series and then the TV series was based on the book.

The film has great reviews so far and Stephen Fry as the book will be great (Stephen fry was a good friend of Douglas Adams). In the Radio series David Jason (Del Boy) played the part of the Captain of the B Arch - might need to listen to the CDs over the weekend.

Apparently whenever Douglas Adams worked got set to working on a film adaptation he'd leave it pretty quickly since he'd prioritise to his computer game work.

Posted:hmm.... isnt douglas adams dead tho?

shrug

this might be crap, (considering the fact i read dilbert in the papers every morning, it must be) but i heard/read/imagined in a drunk stupor that he had died.

*pre-emptive head hanging, yes?*
