Trivia

There are two references to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, who also wrote the Dirk Gently books: The Rowdy 3 consists of 4 members, 5 when Amanda joins them. This is reminiscent of when So Long and Thanks for All the Fish was called "the fourth book in the Hitchiker's Trilogy" and the next book, Mostly Harmless was called "the fifth book in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Trilogy." In the second season, the Boretons had a dog named Agrajag. Agrajag was the name of a constantly reincarnating creature who coincidentally gets killed by Arthur Dent every time he comes back in the third book, Life, the Universe, and Everything. See more »

Excellent first episode
25 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

I did not read the books, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I am familiar with the Hitchhiker's Guide books, so I knew it had to be strange and perhaps funny.

With leads who have been in "The History Boys" and "The Lord of the Rings" movies, you might expect nice performances. The acting was terrific. I'm sure there are other pros you will recognize as well.

As a published science fiction writer, I know how difficult it is to do comedy science fiction. Just ask any editor and they'll tell you that they rarely see it written, and even rarer that it's any good. In this case, I suppose it is more comedy scifi/supernatural, but that doesn't make it any easier. Yet, the first episode of this series manages to be intriguing, funny, and creative all at the same time. I don't know if it is anything like what the books described, but if it continues to be as well done as the first episode, I'm on board.
