    Possibly my favorite phase, slightly down to Earth than other installments, but I absolutely adore Fenchurch.

    The Quandary Phase has the lowest rating of the whole series, but most scientists have come to the conclusion that this opinion is based on three things ignorancestupiditynothing else.The only problem with it is that it s shorter than the other phases, but it makes up by containing some of the most memorable passages of the whole series, like God s final message to his creation, written in fire in letters thirty feet high on the far side of the Quentulus Quazgar Mountains in the land of Sevorbeupstry on the planet of Preliumtarn, which orbits the star Zarss, which is located in the Grey Binding Fiefdoms of Saxaquine And a personal favourite of mine The lizard leaders You mean, it comes from a world of lizards No, said Ford, who by this time was a little rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, nothing so simple Nothing anything like to straightforward On its world, the people are people The leaders are lizards The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people Odd, said Arthur, I thought you said it was a democracy I did, said ford It is So, said Arthur, hoping he wasn t sounding ridiculously obtuse, why don t the people get rid of the lizards It honestly doesn t occur to them, said Ford They ve all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they ve voted in or less approximates to the government they want You mean they actually vote for the lizards Oh yes, said Ford with a shrug, of course But, said Arthur, going for the big one again, why Because if they didn t vote for a lizard, said Ford, the wrong lizard might get in.

    I always remembered So Long and Thanks For All the Fish as being the weakest of the trilogy, but I didn t remember it being this weak I think that a lot of the problem with this adaptation by Dirk Maggs was in reducing the episode count from 6 to 4 which doesn t allow time for the story to breathe But then, is there really a story anyway Is there even a central concept or idea to this or is it just an attempt to find something for the Hitchhiker s characters to do, throwing in a Hitchhiker s concept like the search for God s final message which just doesn t work in nearly as interesting ways as the original search for meaning in the universe did.I d hesitate to call this a waste of time but it shows a creative lull in Adams writing and it s also a bad, uncommitted adaptation of the material which seeks neither to understand or expand upon it it s still sporadically funny, of course The Rain God is very amusing.

    Rating between 3.5 and 4a good adaptation of the 4th hitchhikers book i think.different to the other stories as this is a smaller intimate story centred on arthur dent and his new love fenchurch.the interludes with ford were okay and served to stop the story getting too far away from the world of the guide.the final episode with the final appearance of marvin still played by stephen moore was a touching reunion for arthur as well as a teary good bye to the miserable bugger.overall definitely recommend, especially if listening to all of the phases in sequence.

    I listened to this via Audible.The fourth part of the Hitchhiker s Guide radio play covers a lot of ground since our protagonists saved the universe previously It turns out that the Earth isn t blown up, and Arthur Dent makes his way back to it Comedy, hijinks, and love making ensue.It s a nice departure and sees a bit of a shift in tone, which isn t a bad thing by any means I enjoyed it a great deal and look forward to the next part If you re still reading these reviews and not listening to the production, I m not sure what it will take to make that happen But you should

    This is probably my favorite series or the radio play When I was younger and first reading Hitchhiker s I have to admit I had a huge crush on Fenchurch and was devastated by her disappearance at the end.


  7. says:

    Same as previous 3.


  8. says:

    Still as crazy as ever.

    The Hitchhiker s radio adaptations continue with the fourth installment in the trilogy, So Long and Thanks for All the Fish.This one is funny and amusing, but the weaknesses inherint in the book are on display here namely too much focus on Arthur Part of the fun of Hitchhhiker s is all the zany characters and you get the feeling Adams was tiring of the series at this point as characters such as Ford, Marvin and Trillian only have glorified cameos at best This radio adapation does slim things down a bit and it does have some absurdly funny moments that work better in audio than they do in print.


  10. says:

    This feels like a romantic comedy shoe horned into the Hitchhicker s universe Adams essentially hit the giant reset switch on many of the events from the first story here, losing the general lunatic tone and style of the original Arthur moons and swoons through most of the story, but little else, almost as if Adams was feeling sorry for all the trouble he d been put through or, I suspect, he was tired of writing the character This Phase of the radio drama is considerably shorter than previous entries, and ends on something of a cliffhanger the only real drama in this mostly harmless entry.
