The latest reason I need to learn German

Who knew German public television made a miniseries of The Star Diaries?

The Stanislaw Lem book is one of the most enjoyable I've read this year; a beach book that makes you laugh and think. Recognizable in the trailer are scenes from seventh, eighth and fourteenth voyages (time loop, United Planets, squamp hunt). Not really sure where the holographic lady comes from ... the show needed some sex appeal, naturally. At any rate, I'm dying to get my hands on this, subtitles or no.
