Geeze, movie versions of books stink...Author: Psycho Sam! ()

I was recently watching the old TV series adaptation of "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" and I have 2 words to say about it: IT STUNK!
Not only did they do a godawful job of the special effects (Zaphod Beeblebrox's 2nd head just sort of hung loosely at his side, and his third arm almost never moved), they jumped from the middle of the first book right into the middle of the second book, which made NO SENSE whatsoever. Even the book made a bit of sense in the explanation, but it made no sense at all on tape.
The Hichhikers Guide to the Galaxy happens to be my favourite book (actually, the compilation of all 5 parts of the trilogy is my favourite) and I can see how if I saw the movie first, I'd probably not even bother reading the book. It could probably turn people off the entire idea.
Douglas Adams(the author) is supposedly making a motion picture based on the book sometime this year (It's starting production sometime this year I think) and I really hope they do a semi-decent job of it.
I reccomend the book to anyone who hasn't read it, try to read all 5. It's a really good read, but if you see the TV series first, don't judge the book by the series' quality.
Anyhoo, Umm, End of message.
I am Sam!
SUPER Psycho Sam!
