The late great Douglas Adams is famous, of course, for his funny and crazy Hitchhikers Guide science fiction novels. But these books aren't his only claim to fame. His brand of quirky and amusing science fiction is also well displayed in the made-for-TV episodes of this DVD, that are all based on some of his short stories about Dirk Gently, a wacky but effective private detective who solves complex crimes of a bizarre nature. A missing cat, time travel and the concept of synchronicity (even seemingly random occurrences are connected in the fabric of our reality) are all involved in one particularly enjoyable story. There are only a few episodes, which is disappointing. Sadly, Adams was not with us long enough to provide more stories of this kind. He is missed.
