I never thought I'd see a big budget film version of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy, but it's actually happened, and is on it's way to our screens on 29th April.

I'm prepared to be completely disappointed. I hope I'm not. Prepare for the worst and then you can only be pleasantly surprised is my motto in this case.

But like "The Likely Lads" trying to avoid seeing the football results before watching the replay on TV in the evening, I'm really hoping nothing slips out about it before I get a chance to see it.

In this brave new world of interweb connected blogs and online discussions, I'm thinking that news is going to leak out, unless I block myself off completely, and I can't do that.

This is complicated by the fact that I don't mind the good news leaking out. When the Lord of the Rings films were released, there was unreserved joy from fans of the book, so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. But if I hear nothing, I'm going to have to assume that countrary to the proverb, "No news is bad news" !
