c'est quoi ce bordel
23 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Obviously no one in the writing staff, director, production staff, have ever read the BOOK. Should be capital punishment, allowing such rubbish, BBC isn't what it used to be, sadly more like whomever gave the Chin his show back. Not that the actors are bad, I quite liked Mangan in Hyperdrive and Boyd in Saxondale. Just that I've been very fond of D.A.'s stories, since I was an atypical awkward teen, and particularly keen on the well written, incredibly imaginative Dirk Gently stories. Supposedly my review is not yet long enough. Schrodinger's cat is a famous illustration of the principle in quantum theory of superposition, proposed by Erwin Schrodinger in 1935.
