My First Post, and A Quick Explanation

Hello, and welcome to my newest project: Comparative Adaptology.

Now, you're all probably asking yourself, "What in the name of the Great Prophet Zarquon is Comparative Adaptology?", and you'd be justified in doing so, since as far as I can tell, it's a field that I came up with myself. In its basest form, CA is the art of taking two or more adaptations of a work and looking at them, to see how they hold up against the source material, and each other.

So, starting this Monday, I shall be taking a look at a different set of works each week, starting with the Hitchhiker's Guide series, where we will be looking at the 2005 film and the 1981 BBC miniseries. So stay tuned.
