Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 5
AIRED:
Arthur, Ford and their friends arrive on Magrathea at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe, which is built on the ruins of a planet-building complex, transported there by the exploding computers. Here, thanks to compound interest, customers can enjoy a vast five-course meal and cabaret at no cost whatever while the universe collapses and dies. Arthur and Ford are surprised to find Marvin still waiting for them in the star-ship park of the restaurant. He has been there for rather a long time. To escape, they decide to steal a space-ship, but unfortunately this turns out to be the stunt ship of Disaster Area, the loudest rock band of all time, and they find it has been programmed to plunge directly into the sun. So what next?moreless
