    What say you ?

    Watching it with the wife. we have 2 episodes to go. I like it but feel a little lost in parts of the story. But there is some really clever stuff in there, hoping it all becomes clear by the end

    Wife and I binged it, I really dug it. I don't normally get super into shows for whatever reason, but I was chomping at the bit for resolutions. Not sure how long I'll have to wait until season 2. My sister suggested it, and I got a friend onto it as well.

    I wouldn't have slept on watching it had I known it was a Douglas Adams story.

    Really enjoyed it. It does get a bit... overwhelming towards the end as all the plots converge, but like the characters themselves you just kinda have to trust that things will work themselves out.

    Did they actually make Douglas Adams book a TV series? I'm interested and will have a look!

    yeah

    from what I understand it is a mish mash of the books story wise, but i haven't read them

    I read all 4 hitchhikers books ,or the first 4 anyway I don't know how many there actually are , years ago and this show is making me want to read the books
