So, it's a bit quiet at this stage of the offseason.  I'm re-watching the BBC series of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; obviously it's quite dated, having been first broadcast in 1981, but it captures the feel of the radio series and novels incredibly well.  The 2005 film was rubbish, potential future Mrs Spongie (née Deschanel) notwithstanding.
