Slashdot | Colfer Asked To Write Sixth HHGTTG Book
I have mixed feelings about this.
I have mixed feelings about this one for sure - I still have problems getting over the fact that it's not a 'Trilogy in Four Parts' anymore
Nay, nay and thrice nay.
Hmmmm. I don't think anyone should try to build on Douglas Adams' works.
Do these things ever work out? More Gone With the Wind? Oz 2 Electric Boogaloo? Clerks the cartoon?? Etc etc.
This has bad idea + cashgrab written all over it. P U.
Except, isn't everyone, you know, dead?
Clerks the cartoon was hilarious
I have a bad feeling about this.
QFT. The anime spoof ending they did is one of the funniest damn bits of animation I've ever seen:
Who is driving? Oh my god, bear is driving!
Maybe, but my point being that Clerks the cartoon and Clerks the movie have very little in common, aside from the characters names.
Also, I was taking the piss. Sheesh
Eh. They're entirely different genres, but they do share similar humor stylings (although the cartoon was toned down quite a bit from the effing movie).
And at least the same people were involved in the production of the series. It's not like Kevin Smith died and they made the show anyway.
Ew. I hope you put it back and then washed your hands.
The Kevin Smith who made the Clerks movie died right around 1994. Everything since then has been made by some evil, dumber, fatter, balder clone who just wanted to get out of Jersey.
I stand by my original assessment.
really all I have to say about his.
Yeah, you can give this new book to the dolphins as a parting gift.
They'd throw it right back though
the audio dramas > the books
is all I'll say. >.>
The L. Frank Baum Oz sequels are nearly as good as the first book.
This, though...ugh. Even Douglas Adams seemed to be having trouble by book 4.
I enjoyed The Wiz, but not in the way the creators intended.
Gone With the Wind 2 sucked!
I say just let it be. Trying to cash in one last time never works out.
Hmm. Good point. But I still loved "Clerks The Cartoon" regardless.
