Maybe not as good because I like the sequence in Hitchhiker where they're plasticine or string figures. Virtually everyone else is saying ST is good though. I shall fight on in the minority with an icecream in one hand and a box of Flakes in the other!
Ah, I have fond memories of being a minority... Oh, wait, I'm still a minority!
However, I have not ever seen any Star Trek before. I did love Lost in Space as a small child though, you have to love the robot and his visible sneakers. And of course the chemical used for dry cleaning that they supposedly used to "preserve" their vegetables....
The Hitchiker's film had some very good bits but also some very bad bits. Deep Thought looking bored was funny, the guide graphics worked very well with Stephen Fry's voice which was a lot better on film than on radio (Hitchiker V) even though we don't see him in either case. On the bad side Martin Freeman while cuter and more endearing couldn't do sarcasm or bewildered strongly enough and the characters never seemed to be in any real danger.
Food not a priority? I am amazed and don't quite know what to say. I'll pop down to the basement and get some Unspecified Chocolates for us all instead, oh, and I've put some fresh pies on the cooling rack too.
