I guess the Guide series is a cult classic but that show freaked me out.
The BBC aired it a few months ago, and I could only watch it in small doses.
Oh well..

Oh man AWESOME. I have an old, OLD tape from one of the many PBS broadcasts that I usually watch once a year. My old college roommate's parents have the LASERDISC which always made me jealous but NOW I can't wait for April! FINALLY some clear still shots of all that crazy scrolling text for the Guide entries!!!

Digital Bits is reporting that the second season on TNG will be released on DVD on May 7th.



"Will you SHUT UP? I haven't written a word in a year -nothing I haven't thrown out in years! Do you know what that's like? When it's just you and a blank sheet of paper? When you can't think of a SINGLE thing worth saying, a single character that people could believe in, a single story that hasn't been told a thousand times before!" -- Richard Modoc, "Calliope," Sandman 17, Neil Gaiman.

You know, as much as I loved all the books, I never really got into the tv series. I own the video, but have never been able to watch it all the way through.

However, I think the animations were great, as you have been able to tell from my Babel Fish avatar....

Still, I'll probably end up getting the DVD, just to see what bonus material will be on there. Hopefully there will be some.







"Disillusioned words like bullets bark as human gods aim for their mark
Made everything from toy guns that spark to flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
It's easy to see without looking too far
That not much is really sacred."
- Bob Dylan

Friendly Heads-Up:

The Hitchhiker's DVD should be out on Tuesday. My pre-order from DVD planet was shipped on Friday, so they should be showing up stores this week.

Certainly better than buying Ali or the Friends Season 1 box set.

Awesome awesome awesome.

I remember borrowing the VHS from my local library years ago, it's what turned me onto Douglas Adams in the first place. I'm going to have to put some birthday guilt on someone to get this for me.

But at the same time, it's a tie that's just busy enough without being TOO busy...I actually like it enough not to make a smart-assed remark about it :)
