‘The Kumars at No. 42’. Inspired by ‘Hitchhikers guide to galaxy’ because in the Hitchhiker’s series 42 features prominently as the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything….

2. Kaushik Saha - January 24, 2010

The show is “The Kumars at No.42”

(from Wikipedia): When talking about The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy for the British Book Awards, Sanjeev Bhaskar stated that he chose 42 as the house number because in the Hitchhiker’s series 42 features prominently as the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Sanjeev Bhaskar told interviewer Mark Lawson in August 2007 that the inspiration for the series was an embarrassing evening when he took a girlfriend to meet his parents. They asked her awkward questions and he wondered how they would react if he invited a famous person to his home. Ashwin and Madhuri are exaggerated versions of his own parents.

The Answer to the Ultimate Question (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)… inspires the 42 in “Kumar’s at No. 42”

H2G2 = H(itch)H(ikers) G(uide) to the G(alaxy)
The title The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is often abbreviated “HHGTTG” (as used on fan websites) or “H2G2” (first used by Neil Gaiman as a chapter title in Don’t Panic and later by the online guide run by the BBC).
