'Dirk Gently' finally on the screen!
on December 29, 2013
'Dirk Gently' finally on the screen, albeit, the small screen. Loosely based on the Douglas Adams' two novels it follows the adventures of the titled character as he solves crimes through the "interconnection" of unrelated events. Fans of Adams will be happy to see that one of his quirkiest characters was made into a television series. They will also be a little disappointed in seeing that this is a liberal interpretation of Adams' novel (no ghost, Norse gods, apocalyptic scenery, and no chain smoking Gently). Instead, though, we do have a series with cases that are as bit as strange and as funny as the novels they are adapted from.
