From the mind of Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy) and the studio that brought you The Walking Dead comes the quirky comedy Dirk Gently s Hollistic Detective Agency.
Meet Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett, Penny Dreadful), the fast talking, eccentric detective who believes in the interconnectedness of all things. When washed-up rocker Todd Brotzman (Elijah Wood, Lord of the Rings) stumbles upon the scene of a murdered millionaire, Dirk wholly believes they re destined to untangle the peculiar events surrounding the mystery together, whether Todd likes it or not. As a collection of wild and dangerous characters begin to infiltrate Todd s world and further complicate his life, each one brings the unlikely duo one step closer to uncovering the truth.

So when I heard that the Dirk Gently books were getting a TV show, I KNEW it wouldn’t work (in that way you know the future about things because you get jaded by past experiences and just can’t let them go).
I am a humble man. I can admit when I am wrong. But there are times I will also shout from the rooftops that I have been wrong, and the world must know, so as to prevent repeating the same error I made.
This is one of the latter times.
I’m hard pressed to think of a way for video to do better justice to Adams’s characterization than this (I look forward to future seasons proving me wrong again, and this show getting even better). The acting, the dialogue, the delivery, the absurdity, it all flows well, and feels like it’s coming from Adams himself.
