Julie Lynn Mortensen,
A group of mountain climbers disappears while climbing the Himalayas in the 1950s. In the present, another group takes the same route and also disappears. A shady rich man hires a professional mountaineer and some scientists to find them.
I have to admit I was a bit pessimistic about this show until I saw the first episode. I've read the book and loved it; and, like with all the books I love, was a bit apprehensive about its adaptation (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, anyone?). I needn't have worried. It's quirky, funny and a little absurd - just like the book.
The soundtrack by Bonobo is the cherry on the cake. Can't wait to see the rest of the episodes!
To natan-333: don't be such a party pooper. Kudos on working in the industry and everything (in the UK? This is BC, Canada), but the show portrays a work environment that is *fictional* and something with which a larger part of its audience can identify. I, for one, have been shunned for microwaving popcorn in the office. Showing overweight people working through the night while guzzling Coke and talking about Dungeons and Dragons might not have been as entertaining as it sounds. Besides, as it happens, the grow-op looks very authentic, so at least they got something right.
