Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

BBC America 2016

A group of social pariahs, with somewhat direct connections to the happenings of the universe, follow the holistic philosophy of "everything is connected". Dirk embraces being a weirdness magnet and is a self-styled "holistic detective". Dirk drags his unwitting and unwilling Dr. Watson, Todd, into his absurd "cases" that decipher how everything is connected.

- Crazy, surreal, brutal and funny all what I like - Great cast, funny dialogues and very British

My new favourite best weird bloody rocking frodo fun tv show!

avatar

Craazy show. Just as crazy as the novels, I had read these books when I was a teenage and loved them I was not expecting much of the tv show as these sort of books rarely translate well to TV but although I have only seen the first episode it really did justice to the spirit of the novels in its own way. While it diverges from the books in plot I think that is a good thing. Looking forward to the next episode. Be prepared for a trip if you watch this.

Why would they cancel this masterpiece? Okay then BBC America, I am done with you.

avatar

Very upset to hear it's cancelled. The absurdity of it all is actually really refreshing. Hopefully someone is smart enough to pick this one up.

I watched it randomly on netflix cause I was bored af and I literally finished all the episodes in one afternoon. Just superb. Fantastic. Perfect. I can't find the right words. Everything seems so nonsense, without logic, put there without any reasons, and then. In the end. EVERYTHING, AND WITH EVERYTHING I MEAN E V E R Y T H I N G, even the smallest hole in the wall or the dog on the street has his reason. You have to watch it to understand. Definitely. And then, the last 5 minutes throws each of your certainties into the toilet. Can't wait to see next season.

Sadly, it has almost nothing to do with Adam's novels. They kept just the name of the main character, the clueless sidekick, the cat and the dog. The narrative lacks the british wit and crazy charm of the orginal series, the philosophical implications of chaos, or the novel's extreme confluence. Seattle (or should I say, Vancouver) is a lousy replacement for London, as in the novels the city becomes another character. It's enjoyable, but the original series did more in its 3 episode run than this in 8.

It's such a shame this little, crazy, multidimensional gem was canceled. Honestly one of the best mindfuck shows around.

avatar

Season 1 was awesome. Season 2 was a disappointment. Glad it's cancelled tbh :(

This is not your slightly older Uncle's Dirk Gently. And unfortunately yes, that's a bad thing.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
