Arthur Dent never could get the hang of Thursdays. On this particular Thursday, his house is set to be demolished and his friend Ford Prefect turns out to be from a star named Betelgeuse (and not, after all, from Guildford). Furthermore, it turns out that the whole Earth is scheduled for demolition by the Vogons to make way for a new hyperspace bypass. The irony of the situation is almost lost on Arthur as he and Ford hitch an intergalactic ride away from oblivion

Good, but the book was a bit better. For me, the book seemed funnier. Otherwise, good radio production from the 70s.

Quirky, funny, a great break from the ordinary!

I try to imagine what it was like to hear this series when it first aired back in the late 70's. The characters are nearly perfect for the world they inhabit and the dialogue and narration snaps right along. Douglas Adams' hilarious commentary on the irrationality of human behavior cannot be missed!

This is the first of the series in the Hitchhiker story. Follow Arthur Dent and friends on a journey through an outer space quite unlike anything else in the genre of science fiction.
