  1. Jethro says:

    I should be noted that Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is actually season 2 of that show.

    The show itself was… well, I have some mixed feelings. It’s one of those “Based On The Books But Really Only Kinda” things. They made it way more supernatural than the books are, for one (and yes, one of the books involve the Norse pantheon). I almost want to call this show “X-Men Lite”.

    That said, the whole point of the Dirk Gently books was the Holistic “Everything Is Connected” thing – and they did that fairly brilliantly, both in this season and the previous one. It was a very enjoyable show. It’s not consistently great, but enough of it is. If you do watch it, I highly recommend binge-watching it and not week-to-week. Not that that’s an issue right now, plus the odds of Season 3 have become rather low due to Max Landis being part of the Hollywood Purge.

    I’d also like to mention there was a British version (simply called “Dirk Gently”) which was done very similarly to BBC’s Sherlock – that is, a series was basically three 1.5 hour TV movies. That one was a lot truer to the spirit of the books. And only had one series.
