Nope

It most definitely was an adjective. Think about it - WTF is a "hoopy" as an object? The word was describing a situation, meaning excellent, cool, awesome or a plethora of other superlatives.

I doubt

There are a few corporate types who definitely should try spending a year or two being dead for tax purposes.

The movie was pretty good!

Of course the TV version rules, but the movie production was pretty good as well.

Radio

The radio series was the original and still the very best. All 13 lovely hours of it.

I have it all and listen often.

Simply can not be beaten!
